Diaz speculated that while there may have been some advantages to an independent midway, "what finally enticed them to one operator midway was the customer service, the safety department, the guest services, and the uniformity of all the staff you can get with the company," said Diaz. "They did their due diligence, and they were happy with they saw." Now that the deal is completed, Diaz said both parties are "taking a look at a fresh layout and we are working other on a master plan of future development and a newer look." The Western Fair also fits into NAME's existing Canadian touring schedule, which includes: The Calgary Stampede; Edmonton K-Days; Saskatoon Prairieland Exhibition and the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto. North American Midway owns 200+ amusement rides and operates five Midway units, covering five Canadian Provinces and 20 U.S. states, providing Rides, Games and Food to approximately 15 Million fairgoers every year. New Rides "We are committed to the Western Fair and are comfortable with the length of the contract," said Diaz. "We have been producing family friendly events in Canada for the past decade and our clients are very happy." Diaz said that new for 2015 Western Fair will be the a Blitzer Roller Coaster; Niagara Falls Water Flume Ride; a 110-Foot Giant Ferris Wheel; Mega Drop Tower and Mach 3 ride. "We are looking to bring new and exciting rides to the fair," said Diaz. He expects the midway size and number of rides will be the same. NAME's arsenal of midway rides can fill the amount of rides necessary for this large fair, but Diaz doesn't rule out partnerships with some of the operators who have previously been at the fair. "That's yet to be determined," said Diaz.
