Luaupalooza is Campus Ministry's end of the school year blowout bash! Come join us on the Pryz lawn for an Island Getaway themed party full of T-shirts, rides, food, games, music, and much more to celebrate the end of classes. Below is a little bit of a preview into some of the items to be expected at Luaupalooza 2018. Stay tuned for new updates as it gets closer to the event.

Rides and Attractions! 

Big Chair Photo Station

Who doesn't love taking ridiculous photos on a huge inflatable chair?! This attraction gives you the opportunity to do just that! Come by and use a number of ridiculous props to create some funny memories at the Big Chair photo station!



Shark Attack!

Shark Attack is a mechanical-bull-style ride of a lifetime. Come test your strength and balance on this epic crazy shark that does all he can to knock you off his back.

Dunk Tank

What sounds more exciting than getting to dunk your favorite CUA students, faculty, and staff members after the last day of classes!? Test your accuracy by trying to hit a target to dunk your victim and watch them get soaked over and over again.

Bungee Run

Bungee run is a chance to test how fast you can run and how far you can get with big ol' bungee chords pulling at your back. Compete against others or just see how far you can go yourself, either way it's sure to be a rip-roaring time! 


This is a classic at luaupalooza and is always a bunch of fun. What's the fastest way to get from point A to point B? Well I don't really know it might depend on traffic, but I know that a zipline is definitely a fun way to get there and I think President Garvey would agree!


This attraction pretty much speaks for itself! Come get a ridiculous and very well done caricature of yourself and your friends by any one of our 3 caricaturists at Luaupalooza. If a picture says 1000 words then a caricature says 1000 hilarious words! 

 Coconut Tree Climb

Have you ever watched Survivor or Cast Away and wondered what it would be like to climb a tree in order to grab some coconuts? Well even if you haven't coconut tree climb is a fun ride that pits you against two of your friends or just by yourself to see if you can make it to the top of the coconut tree! 

 In-Line Extreme Air!

Jump higher! Bounce farther! Flip faster! This attraction does it all! This ride combines trampoline bouncing with bungie jump madness and takes them to new heights! A definite must try for Luaupalooza 2015

 Wrecking Ball

I came in like a... super fun game! Test your balance while attempting to knock your friends or family off of theirs during a gladiator-pit style game to see who will end up the last (wo)man standing! 

 Defender Dome!

This is a pretty new attraction to Luaupalooza and is sure to be a big hit! Defend your goal against your opponents and try to score on other's goals in this dodgeball type game to see who is left with the most points. 

Defender Dome

 Four Person Tumbler

Ground, sky, ground, sky, ground, sky, ground! That's what you will be seeing if you ride on the four person tumbler. If you have the stomach to handle this dizzying ride it's definitely one to give a go!
