Our destination? The Sacrificial Deep Fry
Inside Flux Factory, you’re invited to concede items on your person to the main concessions by breading your objects and frying them. Each sacrifice produces a crunchy, golden exterior sure to delight. Add your deep fried object to the altar or take it with you as an homage to LIMO CULT. Enjoy other fried confections and liquid refreshments from The Culinary Equalizer. Feel free to bring an edible item to fry.
