scat-rideThe new ride we plan on bringing for Lakefest is called the SCAT. You are a thrill seeker to take on this one as you are whisked around in high gravity cages that will leave you screaming for more.

Fun Time Amusements Rides has been providing family entertainment for more than 58 years and they plan to bring a wonderful array of rides and games that will enhance the main stage area adjacent Third Street (access at the corner of Third and Virginia Avenue) on Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night. Usually they bring eight or nine rides, which can range from their Flying Super Spinner, Fun Slide, Jurassic Adventure, Scooby Doo Combo Inflatable, Windjammer Kite Flyer and Rock Climbing Wall & more. Most of the rides and games will be located on the grassy lot adjacent to the area. The company’s top priority is that of safety for their patrons and their guests. Safety mechanisms on all rides are constantly monitored on an on-going basis, and the rides are inspected by Virginia State Safety compliance.

The Water Wars Booth

Play the ultimate water balloon game! From Warsaw, NC Water Wars is bringing some water balloon fun that you will have fun either as a game or competition–here is how you play: Opponents go to opposing battle stations with buckets of water balloons. Each battle station has a water balloon launcher. Place a balloon in the launcher, pull down on the handle, aim, and fire! Your balloon soars high through the air and comes crashing down on your opponent’s battle station. There are strategically placed slots and holes in the structure that allows the water to come through. You might get sprinkled, sprayed, or saturated, but watch out, retaliation comes quickly! Water Wars will be located in front of Watkins, Cooper, Lyon’s FH.

    “and Rock Climbing Wall & more..” I really interested to take part in that activities. But do you have any pictures of that rock climbing activities and also the facilities around the park. Is it just a free climbing session or they will provide any kind of gear? Sorry, this is my first time know about this kind of event or fun times Lakefest. I know that there are more activities beside rock climbing but i’m a frequent climber, i just want to test the climbing session before enjoying any other activities provided there. Thanks for the info by the way.
