The grand opening kicks off with an opening ceremony March 21st at 2:45pm followed by a celebration at 5:00pm at the Ferris wheel where attendees will have an opportunity to win hundreds of prizes. “In addition to all the fun and prizes at the grand opening celebration, we are pleased to bring back value pricing and offer the wide variety of rides and quality entertainment that has become the park’s trademark for two and a half decades. This 25th anniversary of the I-X Indoor Amusement park is sure to provide a fun filled day for the entire family,” said, Rob Attewell, Show Manager. “As the north coast’s spring break destination, this event affords visitors the opportunity to SAVE money while enjoying their favorite rides and entertainment.”

Mountain Dew Thrill City brings on the speed with rides that flip, rotate, drop, spin, and fly. Fan favorite Freakout swings riders up to 70 feet high and guarantees to churn out the screams. The exciting Himalaya track car ride dazzles the daring with a caterpillar style ride and unexpected speed – be sure to have friends to hang on to! Mega Bounce does just that, spinning riders while giving them jolts of fun! The Frenzy may look like just another giant swing ride, but don’t be fooled – this one takes you a good 90 feet in the air! Want to get a good scream out of your friends? Climb up into the classic Zipper and flip around as you rotate through the air!
