I'm an adult that wants to come with my children, I will only be spectating. Do I still need to purchase a ticket?

Yes, you will still need to purchase a ticket. We do this as we have reasonably tight capacity limits as this is an indoor event. We want there to be as many children having as much fun as they can at each event, so we ask you to pay for a ticket to limit the amount of adults coming in, so there is room for more kids! This also means that if you get to the event and decide to participate, you are more than welcome to & we know that we will have enough space for you to have heaps of fun with your kids, safely!

What do the paid tickets include?

The paid tickets include all you can ride on all of the indoor amusements & bouncy castles. There will also be a specific 'Under 5's' area for the smaller children. All adults are more than welcome to accompany their children on most of the amusements and bouncy castles.

Do I have to get a ticket for my new born?

Yes, you will need a ticket for your newborn for capacity purposes. However, the tickets are free for under 1's.

Will there be eftpos available?

Yes there will be and paywave! However, we do suggest bringing cash for the food stands.

Will there be door sales?

Yes there will be, however these will be very limited as we were a sellout last year! So we suggest pre-purchasing your tickets to secure your spot on the day.

What will happen if we change COVID levels?

At this stage, the event can operate in orange and green. If the region is in red we will look to postpone working around COVID.

As an events company, we are always on the lookout for any level changes and understand that the level system does have to change sometimes. If there is an announcement around this required, we will make sure to keep you updated on our Facebook event page, so make sure to RSVP to keep up-to-date

Can I smoke at this event?

No. This is a smoke-free & vape-free event. We please ask you to refrain from smoking and vaping in the event area. You may smoke outside of the event. If you need to leave and then come back, please consult one of our friendly team & they will be more than happy to get you a wristband so you can come back in.

Does my ticket allow me to come on any of the days?

No it doesn't. Please make sure to purchase your ticket for the day and time slot that you would like to come.

I've selected the wrong date and time. What do I do?

Sorry we can’t alter your date/time slot as these events sell out. Please choose carefully upon purchase.

My child is 2-years-old. What do they get?

They will be able to have heaps of fun in the under 5's area with multiple inflatables that are more suited to under-5's. The under-5's are also more than welcome to join on the over-5's area, providing they feel confident enough. There will be paid face painting + so much more!
