The Kansas City Renaissance Festival Ends Elephant Ride
Bonner Springs – The Kansas City Renaissance Festival has been a longstanding tradition in the Kansas City community by listening to the concerns and cares of their valued patrons. With that in mind, the Kansas City Renaissance Festival decided to end their elephant ride this upcoming season. They had received countless letters, phone calls, and Facebook messages from patrons asking to end this outdated ride.
Although they are eliminating this ride, the Kansas City Renaissance Festival will still feature multiple attractions and rides including a Zipline, giant swings, 20 stages of non-stop entertainment, and of course turkey legs! In addition to the classics, new events to the festival this upcoming season include a Dragon Encampment, Highland Hill Ranch, Escape Rooms, Living History Tours, and an Obstacle Course.
The Kansas City Renaissance Festival is celebrating 41 years of entertainment. The festival began in 1977 as a benefit for the Kansas City Art Institute. Now, 200,000 people visit annually. The tradition continues this year from September 2 to October 15, including Columbus and Labor Day.
