The Event

What is Ridiculous Playground?

Prepare yourself for a day of ridiculous laughs, ridiculous fun, ridiculous inflatables and probably a few ridiculous face-plants! Ridiculous Playground, presented by ROC Race, is your chance to take on up to 6 epic inflatables that will see you slip, slide, dash and crash your way through an epically ridiculous arena. These inflatables include (but are not limited to!) The Hippo, a towering 4 story waterslide; Leap of Faith, a 3 metre free fall; Foam of Fury, a foamy slip and slide and the chance to race your mates up and down The Drop!

The best part!? You have got the chance to master each inflatable with unlimited turns on every inflatable! This is your time! Crack out your costumes and prove once and for all that you are a champion! (Even if it takes 25 tries…)

Ridiculous Playground is open to all participants over the age of 10 years and of all levels of expertise. In fact, the only skill you require is the ability to laugh at your mates and – more importantly – yourself! This adventure is best experienced with family and friends, so work out your perfect playground crusader costume and get ready for some magnificent thrills and some hil-ar-ious spills… you’ve been warned!


What is the difference between Ridiculous Playground and ROC Race?

The Ridiculous Playground is a massive inflatable playground set in an epic arena, while the ROC Race is a 5km obstacle-filled fun-run. This means that during your 2-hour time slot, you can go on each of our legendary inflatables as many times as you want! So if at first you don’t succeed, then you can try again, and again, and again, and again… and again…

The Ridiculous Playground also features Home Base an awesome refuelling zone where you and your mates can chill out, recharge your superpowers and grab a bite to eat from one of our finger-lickin’ food vendors!


Are there any age restrictions?

The minimum entry age for Ridiculous Playground is 10 years old. Unfortunately, in order to comply with regulations, we can’t make any exceptions to this rule!

If you’re under 18, you have to bring a signed copy of the waiver by your parent/legal guardian. Click here for the minor waiver. If you don’t have the waiver, you can’t access the inflatables – so don’t forget it!

If you’re 10-13 years old, we strongly encourage you to have a legal guardian, parent, older sibling or your friend’s parent with you at the event. So long as they are over 18 and are willing to look out for you during the day, we’re happy with that!

How do I register multiple people?

Ah yes, Ridiculous Playground is best enjoyed with your nearest and dearest, because healthy competition – duh! So, the best way to ensure you all get to participate in the same time slot, and that your procrastinating mates don’t miss out on tickets, is to purchase them all at the same time!

When you select to buy tickets, you will have the option to select the number of tickets you’d like to purchase. Upon doing this, you will first be directed to complete the form for yourself, followed by each additional participant. This will mean that you need to know your mate’s personal details – including full name, date of birth, phone number, postcode and emergency contact.

Once you have completed payment, each participant you have just registered will receive an email prompting them to sign their insurance waiver and create an Active account. Each participant must complete this step to participate in the event!


How do I view and manage my registration?

If you want to stare fondly at your registration and imagine all the ridiculous times coming your way, you can login and view your registration on myevents.active.com


How can I add merchandise to my registration after I have already registered?

If you’re down for some swag to jazz up your outfit, say no more!
Simply log into your active account at myevents.active.com and select “Purchase additional merchandise”. This will open a new page. Scroll down to the merchandise section and choose the items you would like. Scroll down to the bottom, click “Continue”. Follow the prompts to complete the purchase.


What do I need to know if I am registering a child ?

The minimum entry age for Ridiculous Playground is 10 years old. Unfortunately, in order to comply with regulations, we can’t make any exceptions to this rule!

The legal guardian of the child must be the person who registers the child online.

If you’re under 18, you have to bring a signed copy of the waiver by your parent/legal guardian. If you don’t have the waiver, you can’t access the inflatables – so don’t forget it!

If you’re 10-13 years old, we strongly encourage you to have a legal guardian, parent, older sibling or your friend’s parent with you at the event. So long as they are over 18 and are willing to look out for you during the day, we’re happy with that!


Wave Times

What is a time slot?

When registering, you need to choose your desired time slot. Your time slot is a two hour window of time, during which you have full access to the Ridiculous Playground Inflatable Arena!

Before and after your time slot, you will still be able to hang out at Home Base, where you can grab a bite to eat, party down to some fresh tunes and get involved with our sensational sponsor activations!


Do I have to participate in the allocated time slot?

You bet you do! It’s our job to make sure that you have a great time and stay safe in the Ridiculous Playground. By using time slots with strict capacities, we can make sure that the Inflatable Arena never gets too crowded and that we can keep everyone safe. Nobody wants to wait ages to get on an inflatable, so time slots really are a win-win!


Can I change to another time slot?

Of course you can! So long as there is availability in the slot you want to transfer into, we can make that happen! If you want to change time slots, follow the instructions here


What happens if my time slot is sold out before my friends register?

Don’t be a silly goose! The best way to make sure nobody gets left out is to get all your mates to register at the same time!

Nobody likes being left out of the ridiculousness, so if one of your mates was too slow in snatching up their ticket, we will do our best to assist in transferring everyone into another available time slot! However, if all other slots are at capacity then unfortunately we can’t squeeze anyone else in.

If you want to change time slots, follow the instructions here


Transfers and Refunds

How can I transfer to another person?

Should you no longer be able to attend Ridiculous Playground, you are welcome to transfer your registration over to somebody else (even though we really will miss you!).

To transfer your registration to another participant, please log in to your Active Account at myevents.active.com and select “transfer registration to another athlete”. You will then be prompted to enter the email address of the new participant and hit submit.

The new participant will then receive an email prompting them to claim the transferred registration. The new participant will need to pay for the registration (at the current registration price). Once the new person has claimed the transfer and paid for their registration, the original participant will automatically be refunded the registration fee (minus the $5.50 transfer fee). Please note booking fees are non-refundable.

Don’t forget – the new participant must be 10 years or older!


How can I transfer to another time slot?

If you’ve decided you’d prefer a sleep in, or perhaps an early rise, you can transfer to another time slot if there is still availability in your preferred time! (or maybe you’re just transferring because your mates didn’t listen to you and snap up their ticket fast enough and now your original time slot is sold out!) Either way, we’re here to help!

You are able to transfer your registration to another time slot by logging into your Active account at myevents.active.com Once logged in choose ‘Change event category’. Select the time slot you would like to transfer to and follow the prompts to complete the transfer.

Please note a $5.50 transfer fee applies per person.


How can I transfer to another day?

Decided you might be best swapping over your days? No judgement!

If there is still availability in your preferred event day, you are able to transfer your registration to another day, for the same event, by logging into your Active account at myevents.active.com Once logged in choose ‘Change event category’. Select the day and wave you would like to transfer to and follow the prompts to complete the transfer.

Please note a $5.50 transfer fee applies per person.


Am I able to receive a refund if I can no longer attend?

While we never like to hear you can no longer make it, unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds when the event goes ahead. The logistics of setting up and planning the event make it extremely difficult. Just make sure you are good to go before registering!

If you do find you can no longer attend, you can transfer your registration over to somebody else as a way of recouping your entry fee.


Event Day

When should I arrive at the event?

We suggest you arrive 1 hour before your time slot starts so you can collect your wristband, grab a pre-game snack and store any items at the bag drop. If you are running late, you will only be undercutting your own time out on the inflatables, and we really don’t want you to miss out on a minute of ridiculousness!


What do I need to bring with me?

We’re so glad you opened this question – we love to see you like to come prepared!

You will need to bring along your confirmation email on event day – or more importantly, the QR code on this. You can either print out the email or just show it on your phone.

If you had somebody else register on your behalf, you must, must, must ensure you have signed your waiver (do you hear the urgency in our voice here!?). No waiver = no play. You can sign your waiver through the link that states ‘click here to sign your waiver’ on your confirmation email. If you registered yourself, you signed the waiver when purchasing, so you’re all good!

If you are under 18 years old, you must ensure you bring along a signed copy of the minor waiver here.

We do have a free bag drop at the event, so if you want to bring along a change of clothes or a towel, you can do so! Just ensure that anything you bring is in a bag, as we won’t accept loose items.

OH and one more thing – make sure you bring along a sturdy set of abdominals because there is going to be some serious lols.


What should I wear?

All participants must wear enclosed shoes on all inflatables. Remember, you might get wet on some of the inflatables so keep that in mind when planning your outfit!

Other than that, go wild with your outfit! Crack out your silly wigs and superhero costumes, plan out your look and get everything on-fleek, the ridiculous-er the better!


Can I take my phone/GoPro/belongings on the obstacle?

Sure you can! Feel free to bring your GoPro, your phone, etc, but make sure that all loose items are secured to your body with a strap (trust us, it’s easy to become separated from your goods out on these inflatables so take our advice by securing your items to you!).

It is also important to remember that your belongings may get wet on some of our inflatables, so think about this and waterproof your items or reconsider bringing expensive cameras and phones! Everything you bring into the Inflatable Arena is brought at your own risk. Ridiculous Playground is not responsible for any lost, damaged or stolen items.

BTW, if you get any great pics on the day, make sure you #letsgetridiculous for a chance to get featured on our social media channels!


Is there somewhere to leave my belongings?

Yes, we’ve got you covered with a free bag drop at the event. When you drop off your bag you’ll be given two wristbands – one to attach to your bag and another to put on your wrist. Do not lose the one on your wrist, you will need this to pick up your bag when you finish. You’ll also need to ensure all your valuables are kept in a bag, as we do not accept loose items!


Can spectators attend?

Of course! Whether you want to bring your mum, your dad or your great aunt Cathy, spectators are able to view the inflatables and access the food vendors at Home Base. However, spectators will not be able to access the inflatable area.


How many times can I go on the inflatables?

As many times as you want, baby! You’ve got yourself unlimited turns on all of our ridiculous inflatables during your two hour time slot! Booyah!!


Do I have to complete all the inflatables?

Anything you don’t want to do, you don’t have to do! Do whatever looks fun to you!
