BETHLEHEM, PA–A zip line, four new rides and a new light-up Musikfest kids’ mug are among the family-friendly highlights at Musikfest, the 10-day music festival that takes place Aug. 7-16 throughout Bethlehem.
Highlighting this year’s family fun is a 200-foot long zip line at Kinderplatz, which will give attendees a thrilling, bird’s-eye view of the festival as they zip over the venue. Other new rides for 2015 include:
Topical Rainforest Inflatable Playground – kids can bounce around this inflatable island
Mini Train Ride
All in One Combo – features three rides in one – a spider climb with slide, rock wall and a bungee trampoline
While costs for individual rides vary, the festival’s all-day ride pass, available Monday-Friday, offers unlimited rides, including one zip line ride, between noon and 4:30 p.m. that day. Individual zip line rides are $10 per person, or two rides by the same person for $15.
Musikfest’s collectible mug has been popular with adults for decades, and now kids can be just like their parents with the new Musikfest “Fester in Training” children’s mug. The clear, light-up mug, available starting July 27, features the Musikfest “Artie” owl and offers five different colorful settings include strobe and pulsing multi-color settings. In addition, kids can enjoy the new Musikfest “Artie” plush owl.
