Radio controlled with an advanced two-way audio system, OSCAR actually listens and responds to captivated audiences and his built-in video system, with cameras, VCR and color TV, enables him to promote any product service or event. His animated head and arms, music and sound effects all add to the magic, as he dances with amazed customers, prospects or other guests. Visits daily during fair operating hours.
  • Kachunga and the Alligator Show - from deep in the swamps of Florida, comes KACHUNGA! Watch in astonishment as he apprehends a ferocious man-eating reptile with his bare hands. This not only an educational, and fun show, but above all, it is safe for everyone to view. You’ll feel your adrenaline surge as you witness a man pit his strength and agility against nine feet and 300 pounds of lashing tail and gnashing jaws in a dangerous dance of reflexes and cunning. Kachunga is a real American Bushman who dares to step foot into the wet domain of the alligator, and would make Crocodile Dundee look like a wimp. Performance hours: 6 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
  • New This Year: Horses, Horses, Horses - Lisa Dufresne will delight and entertain the entire family. She has taken her life-long love and passion for animals and transformed it into a stunning show of animal mastery. She is traveling with three horses and nine American miniatures. Her horses perform five acts, including a comedy show. Performance hours: 6 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
