There are lots of rides at Americana; most of the cars, however, have been removed and placed in either the auditorium or along the river which runs behind the park. One ride which still had its rides (maybe because they’re heavy as hell) was the log ride.

There are also two ferris wheels. One is the main attraction, dominating the park at the center. The other is the smaller, kiddy ferris wheel, which stands near the log ride in the remote Old West section of the park.

Other rides included old standbys such as the Tilt-A-Whirl, the Scrambler, Race Cars, Bumper Cars, and Bumper Boats.

My personal favorite, though, was the big slide. One of the major reasons I went back at night was so I could go down it. Of course, the guard put a big damper on that idea.
