“Tonight is going to be nighttime open at sunset. Get out to the park, at Oak Park, we’re gonna have black lights, great sound system, music, fog machines, glow in the dark ropes, glow in the dark climbers and we’re going to be racing head to head 50 feet up the rope and it’s a space theme so we’re gonna be blasting off,” Competitor Dustin Goodman said.
