White Waterlog Flume

The world-class White-Water ride is one of Butler Amusements’ most spectacular acquisitions. Unlike any other ride on our midway, the new White Water brings a new dimension of thrills to carnival goers. Logs hold two passengers each and patrons make their way up two different hills- Once the log reaches the top, it descends rapidly splashing at the bottom of the water slide. -The White Water is an exciting spectacular addition to the Butler midway.

Giant Scooters

A new innovation on a traditional ride, our Scooters are state-of-the-art. Riders, seated in their “cars” begin a trip over a rectangular floor, bumping and dodging other drivers in their way! Coupled with the thrill of the ride is a light show, TV videos visible around the center of the platform, music, and more special effects at night! The Scooters are a custom-built attraction – the first in the United States, available only through Butler Amusements.
