Here are some things you should know about the amusement rides:


Take a gondola ride with your friends -- just take out the belting singer and water, add ridiculous speeds and a full 360 rotation, and you’ve got yourself the Kamikaze. Swing and build momentum slowly until you take in a full view of Town Square and spiral towards the ground!


In an adrenaline packed whirl of unpredictability, the Zipper has truly earned its right as the festival centerpiece. The Zipper allows riders to experience the world upside down and spun around with free-flipping cars that rotate like a Ferris Wheel!

Round Up

A classic carnival staple, the Round Up is a Hullabaloo veteran. Step on up and immerse yourself in the ride’s dazzling colors and lights. Explore the world from a blend of visuals and audio in a way you have never imagined!


The initial drop will take your breath away, and then let the smiles take over the rest of your ride! Soar through the air and scope the festival from Town Square to Matthews Quad. Over the span of 200 feet, you will be able to travel down Rupertus Lane like you never have before!
