Another great ride at the Adventuredome is the Rim Runner Water Plume ride, or typically called the log ride. This log ride comes to a pretty exciting finale with a four story descent into a big splashdown that’s a real crowd pleaser.

There is also a bumper cars area, a carousel, a ferris wheel and a swinging pirate ship.
Check out Adventuredomes Extreme Zone where you can participate in trampoline bungee jumping or rock climbing. Or you may want to spend some time at the laser tag arena or batting cages. There is also a clown themed Imax experience called the Fun House Express.
Finally the Adventuredome has a wide variety of smaller kids rides and carnival type games where you can try winning one of those six foot tall stuffed bears you’ve always wanted.
