4th Annual Big Air Blob Competition – July 4th ONLY
Who needs fireworks when you have the BLOB! After your river trip, join us at the ACE Adventure Play Park & Lake for the 4th Annual Blob Competition!
Teams of two will compete for the most outrageous and creative blob of the day. Judges will give a score of 1-10 on each blob based on height, form, and originality... the crazier the better! Do a split, a flip, a summersault, or showcase a new move - this is your time to shine. There will be prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place team winners.
The event is FREE for ACE guests, so when you check in at the Welcome Center, be sure to ask for more details!
