In addition to the marquee ride, The Midway is also home to a carousel for folks of all ages to ride on — carousel admission is $3 per person. There are also fun games, including a water-race game, a basketball challenge and a balloon bust activity.

Before the season ends, take in views of the river and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway while taking a spin on the outdoor roller skating rink at Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest.

In addition to all of the carousel rides and boardwalk games along the waterfront, Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest houses other attractions that make for plenty of outdoor fun.

Guests can lace up their roller skates and take a spin on the giant outdoor roller rink, try their hand at a round of mini-golf or lounge al fresco at one of the many picnic tables throughout the space.

Just steps away from all of the outdoor fun, guests can find delicious eats and drinks like Crabfries, cheesesteaks, sandwiches, sodas, cold beers, cocktails and more inside of the Chickie’s and Pete’s Waterfront Crabshack.

Be sure to stop by this summer-only attraction before its season ends this Labor Day weekend!
