The many attractions include: inflatables, which require a Zip Card and a signed waiver in order to participate, carnival games with a raffle prize table. Prizes include Cleveland Indians tickets, Cedar Point tickets, Beats by Dre, and a Southwest Airlines gift card. There will also be free cotton candy, snow cones, and the popular petting zoo.

The Ultimate SpringFest Challenge is where 12 students are selected through an application based process. Throughout the course of the challenge, the contestants will face off in a timed challenge to complete the variety of interactive and inflatable attractions that are offered at SpringFest. The 2018 contestants are coming soon to uakron.edu/springfest/festival.
