Major Rides

Windy City Amusements carries a wide selection of big rides, geared for teenagers and thrill seekers. Rides such as the Cliff Hanger and Yo Yo have become instant favorites on our midways.

Cliff Hanger

The Cliff Hanger gives riders the sensation of flying as riders lie on their stomach.  As the ride begins to spin, it rises at a 45 degree angle.

Ferris Wheel

The Eli Hy 5 is a traditional Ferris wheel.  The Eli HY-5 features 12 traditional Ferris wheel seats offering patrons a birds eye view of the surrounding area!


A tradition on any midway, the Scooter, or Bumper Cars as it is commonly referred to is a popular ride among all ages.  Riders are able to crash and bump into other drivers with no hesitation!


The Sizzler is a modern version of the classic Scrambler ride that spins riders in two different directions.  As the center of the ride rotates, so does the spindles which the seats are on.  The Sizzler is outfitted with a spectacular LED light show thats sure to dazzle crowds at night!


Since its inception in 1929, the Tilt-A-Whirl remains one of America’s favorite amusement rides.  Customers ranging from young children to seniors have been known to enjoy riding this timeless classic.


The Zipper is arguably one of the most popular thrill rides in America for teenagers and thrill seekers.  WCA is one of few carnivals in Chicago to continue to operate a Zipper.
