What is the Red Bull Flugtag?
The FLUTAG involves five person teams attempting to fly outrageous man-powered vehicles over water after being pushed off of a 28 foot high platform.
The History Page of the Flugtag website starts in the 1480’s. However, Red Bull has been doing this since 1992 when it held it’s first Flugtag in Vienna. They have been doing it in the United States since 2002 but this year will mark their first multi-site National Flugtag.
There will be parking in the parking garages around Lake Carolyn but DART rail will get you within walking distance.
