In addition to music and food, the inaugural Lost Lake Festival in Phoenix will have a "playground" with larger-than-life games.

The three-day music festival partnered with Walter Productions, a Phoenix-based entertainment events company, and "reimagined everyone's favorite backyard and billiards games in unexpected ways," according to a news release.

The games include:

  • Giant pool table: The billiards balls have been replaced with bowling balls and the table is 56-feet long. The goal is to roll the bowling balls into the pockets.
  • LED table tennis: It's regular table tennis, but the electric table has LED lights that respond to the touch of the ball.
  • Mega Twister: A giant version of Twister with lights and sounds, plus a large spinner.
  • Colossal Croquet: The hoops are so large that you'll be able to follow your ball through them.
  • Life-sized Connect 4
  • Humongous Cornhole
  • Jumbo Jenga
  • Gigantic Ladder Golf
  • Giant Foosball
  • Extra-large Bocce ball

The Lost Lake Festival, produced by SuperFly, the creators of 'Bonnaroo' and 'Outsides Lands,' will be Oct. 20-22, 2017 at Steel Indian School Park near Central Avenue and Indian School Road.
