family will enjoy. The world-famous Woodstock leads a fun-filled adventure through the

gang invite guests to interact in displays and games featuring summertime favorites like
picnics, campfires, and sports.
The shimmering midways make a perfect backdrop for family photos and video of this amazing visual display.
Guests will be immersed in the attraction through the use of cutting edge special effects and sound design, and can
also interact with fantasy characters like giant fireflies, swimming sea creatures, and colorful caterpillars.
Custom designed for Worlds of Fun by EMMY® Award-Winning RWS and Associates, New York, New York,

throughout the attraction.
