New Rides

If the upgrade in musical entertainment wasn’t enough, K-Days will debut two new rides this year. Along with the staple fan-favourite rides like the Mega Drop and the Crazy Mouse, the fair welcomes the brand-new Himalaya and Charlie Chopper to its line-up of both adventurous and family-friendly rides.

  • Himalaya: Give your arms and lungs a healthy workout on this ride while you spin around and around under a barrage of wildly bright lights and lively music. The faster you shout; the faster you go. See just how fast you can spin – forward and backwards – on the Himalaya at K-Days this summer.
  • Charlie Chopper: Fly 50 feet into the air inside a colourful helicopter on the new Charlie Chopper ride coming to the midway at K-Days. This ride is tons of fun for the tiny adventurers out there, and Mom and Dad won’t need to watch from the sidelines: the whole family can hop into the chopper on this exciting new ride. You’ll want to race to get in first because the two riders in the cockpit get full control of the throttle.
