  • Contraption may not extend more than 18 inches beyond its wheels on either side, and must not be taller than 14 feet
  • Contraption builders must submit basic drawings with dimensions, materials (including type of wheel & type of axle- including axle max weight load), total max weight load for contraption, and max number of riders, by August 15th
  • Once applications are processed, a “loading time” will be assigned for you to deliver your contraption to the tracks
