Adults-Only Event Overview
As it is every year, the Adults-Only event is headlined by The Spazmatics.
Please plan on arriving no later than 7:30 PM for introductory remarks by Alex Gabbi.
In addition to our long-standing attractions such as the Colosseum (gladiator fights), Circus Maximus (chariot racing), and the Forum (auction), Ancient Rome will also feature the return of last year's new attractions for the Adults-Only Party including:
- Vesuvius, Austin's first and only active volcano.
- The aqueduct bar
- "Nobility-Class" Ticketing - distinguish yourself from regular Roman citizens at the party with preferential treatment, recognition, and access to unique raffle items. Hail Caesar indeed!
THIS IS A ROMAN-THEMED PARTY!!! IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED YOU COME IN COSTUME, UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE THE ONLY SILLY PERSON DRESSED IN REGULAR STREET CLOTHES.
Adults-Only Event - Parking

Family Event Overview
The Family Event will have fun for kids of all ages. All of the favorites from years past will be returning this year, including gladiator fights, chariot racing, slip and sliding, cotton candy, popcorn, dance floor with deejay, snow cones, aqueduct soda bar and much much more.
Due to the number of wet activities, it is highly recommended you either come in a bathing suit or bring a change of clothes.
Please note that the Family Event will end promptly at 5:00 PM to allow for cut-over to the Adults-Only Event.
