What are the opening hours?

Doors open at 9am and last entry will be at 3.30pm. The event closes at 4pm.

Where can I buy tickets?

You can buy tickets in advance once we’ve set up the online ticket system. Prices will be $15 for families of 2 or 3; $20 for families of 4, $25 for families of 5, $30 for families of 6 or more.

Kids 3 and under are FREE. Kids over 12 are welcome to enter, but will not qualify to participate in the activities, sorry.

What is there to do on the day?

We’ll have around 70 different activities available to try and engage with on the day. Allow at least two hours to be able to see and do as much as you can. Once you’re in the doors, all the activities are free!

Can I buy food there?


The Silverdome have done some renovations since we there last, and have built a brand new kiosk closer to the entrance. They’ll have a great range of food options up there, and there will be a coffee van on the Silverdome floor too. Of course, you can always bring your own too.

What about drinks?

There will be FREE water refills provided on the day. Do the right thing and bring your own water bottle to refill.

How will you manage lost kids/parents?

The Information Desk will be the go-to point to reunite parents and children. A great tip is to take a photo of your kids before you enter so can have a copy on your phone to show our volunteers, it will help find each other quicker. And try to remember what colour top they are wearing, that can help too. The Silverdome has limited entry and exit points, it will be hard for them to go too far. Our volunteers at the doors will prevent any child leaving without an adult.

Will the zipline be there again?

Yes! And they'll even have two ladders heading up to the start so we can get people moving faster this year. One run on the zipline, run by Hollybank Trees Adventures, is free for kids 8 - 12 years. 

Can I change or feed my baby anywhere?

Absolutely! Check the floor plan, there's a parent care room in the Care Zone with a change table, and seating area.
