Overview

Our Pricing, Operational Calendar and other information is available on our webpage and our facebook page. Please note that on all normal operating days, the rides close from 3-3:30 pm; the arcade and concessions will remain open during this time. Located on the shores of beautiful Chautauqua Lake, Midway State Park is a family treasure. Originally established in 1898 as a trolley park, Midway State Park is one of the oldest continually operating amusement parks in the nation. Midway State Park continues to offer the same family friendly atmosphere that visitors have come to love. Patrons can take a nostalgic ride on the vintage carousel, play a game of mini golf, take a spin on the tilt-a whirl, ride the go-karts or watch their children enjoy themselves on the many kiddie rides. And, while some may prefer to relax while enjoying an old fashioned candy apple or cotton candy, others can test their skills at classic midway games.

Young children would probably appreciate this place the most. There is a train, cute little boats and a Carlisle ride with vintage horses. I came here with my mom and my teen daughter. She loved the mini golf and the vintage arcade. You have to...More

Unfortunately, there are fewer and fewer of these type of parks around. Where else can you take the kiddie's for rides their size without paying a megabuck for each individual. Kudos to the state for attempting to keep this place going. Small, but enjoyable selection...More

Cute amusement park for the young ones right on the lake. The only downside is there is not a lot of shade around the rides so put sunscreen on the kids. The ride attendants were extremely friendly & helpful. Tips: Concessions are cash only with...More

Our nephews loved Midway State Park - the rides are classics and everything is designed for the younger child. Midway is very clean and all the rides appear well maintained and in excellent shape. Recommend!

Height requirements are listed at each ride that has limits. Measuring the child height can be done at the ticket counter where there are height measurement tables posted on the building.
