What should I wear?

Feel free to get creative with what you wear as SLIMEFEST is a show all about kids having the Slime of their lives! If you are in the SLIME PIT area, it will get pretty messy, so it’s a good idea to bring a change of clothes and a spare towel for the trip home. If you are thinking about wearing your best white shirt or fave clothes, then think again! It’s best to wear your not-so-fave clothes just in case you get super slimy.

Can parents get into the SLIME PIT too?

The SLIME PIT area will be the centre of all of the SLIMEFEST action however, we understand that some children may become tired or overwhelmed in the SLIME PIT and wish to leave. If you think that this might be the case with your child, we would recommend purchasing an additional seated ticket for them to ensure they have the option of sitting to watch the show.
