FlyWire Zip Line
Experience a Popular Outdoor Activity Inside!
Experience high-flying excitement at this year’s show! If you’ve ever wanted to try ziplining, this is your chance. Imagine the sensation of stepping off a three-story platform and soaring more than 200 feet across the show at up to 20 miles per hour. Whether you’re a dedicated thrill seeker or normally avoid even the carousel at theme parks, it’s the ultimate rush—and an experience you won’t soon forget.
The zipline will open up one hour after the show opens, with the last ride occuring one hour before the show closes each day.
Suitable for most ages. Weight restrictions apply.

The KC Food Truck Mafia is a tightly knit family of food truck owners that take pride in serving up tasty, unique fare from their mobile restaurants. Different food trucks will be featured each day of the show.

Progressive® Insurance Boat School
Boost your boating IQ!
Top-notch mariners from the Annapolis School of Seamanship will be on deck to teach an entertaining curriculum of hands-on boating “courses.” They’ll share tips and tricks that will help you and your crew play it safe while having fun on the water. It’s enjoyable and educational for the whole family!
