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 kids aged 4-12 years. Kids 3 and under are FREE. Kids over 12 are welcome to enter, but will not be supplied a ticket, and as such, won’t be able to participate in the activities. All parents and guardians are FREE.

What is there to do on the day?

We are changing up the activities a fair bit this year. But don’t worry, they’re going to be bigger and better than ever before. There is SO much to do! Allow at least two hours to get through it all.

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?

When you arrive at the Silverdome you'll be given a wrist tag for all kids under 12.  It will need to have the kids name and your phone number written on it.  This will enable us to reconnect you if you get separated.  If you do, please go to the Information Desk in the centre of the floor and ask for help there. A great idea 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. 

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.  Plus there will be a microwave to heat what you need.
