Hang Ten Carnival Fun Zone
For the adventure-seekers, the Hang Ten Carnival Fun Zone may just be your jam. Here, there is something for everyone. Kiddie rides include a super slide, pirate island, and teacups among others. For teenagers and adults, hop on board the Sizzler, the Zipper, the Tornado, or Starship. Finally, every member of the family can enjoy the Ferris Wheel, the Yo-Yo, or Mardi Gras. But you must purchase tickets to enjoy the rides. The number of tickets varies per ride. Avoid the lines and save some money. Purchase your tickets ahead of time online. Buy them before midnight on August 25th and only pay $30 for 10. They cost more on the day of the festival. Plus, you only need one online ticket to ride any of the rides. If you buy them at the festival, it costs anywhere from four to seven tickets per ride.
