Everything except food and drink.

The event is all-inclusive meaning that once you are inside all activities and attractions are included in the cost of your ticket and are unlimited. All you need to buy is your food, drink and stalls.

However, please adhere to the following to keep it fair to everyone:

  • All activities are unlimited on the condition that everyone is fair to others. Children are welcome to have unlimited go's on inflatables, rides, etc. However, they must enjoy for the allocated time and then re-join the queue if they would like another turn. Please listen to staff and be fair to others. Enjoyment is our main priority so please respect other families and children.
