Scandia Amusements is a chain of Scandinavian-themed family amusement centers in California, including three locations: Scandia Fun Center in Sacramento, Scandia Family Fun Center in Victorville, and Scandia Amusement Park in Ontario. All three locations are located adjacent to a major freeway, and include attractions such as an arcade, "Baltic Sea Bumper Boats", batting cages, miniature golf, and "Stockholm Raceway". Scandia Amusement Park in Ontario is the only location to include a full amusement park, including two roller coasters, called the "Scandia Screamer" and "Little Screamer", along with twelve other amusement rides.

The locations in Sacramento and Victorville also include an attraction called "Scandia Screamer"; not a roller coaster, but a 168-foot-tall thrill ride (51 m).[1] On March 26, 2007, noise complaints from neighboring residents caused Scandia Fun Center in Sacramento in implement a "No-Shrieking" policy for riders on the Scandia Screamer.[2]

Although being similarly named, Scandia Family Fun Center, another family entertainment center, located in Rohnert Park, California, is not owned nor operated by the Scandia Amusements company. Another company, "Skandia Funland Inc." owns and operates that park.
