INTERACTIVE EXHIBITS AND ACTIVITIES
If Lake Washington hosts all the action on the water, then Genesee Park is the place for fun on land. This year Seafair has added more games, more entertainment, more everything
The military returns with free flight simulators, climbing walls and the opportunity to compete in a chin up contest against a highly trained U.S. Marine.
The Kids Zone is also back! A $12 wristband gets you in for the fun all day. Seafair will have inflatable rides, jumpers and games, certain to keep the whole gang going.
Hydro 101 is an interactive tent that will help educate people on hydroplane racing and display the parts and gear that makes it all possible. The Hydro 101 tent will feature a real life Mannequin in a drivers suit, an F1 hydroplane engine and interactive videos in which patrons can further their knowledge of the sport. The booth will be in Genesee Park throughout Seafair weekend and is open to the public.
A brand new Waterslide in Genesee Park!
