Frosty fun this winter!

Event Details

 Snow4Kids 2020 has opened at South Bank for the 8th consecutive year.

You and your family can play in the snow, build a snowman and throw some snowballs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from July-17 to  August-31.

The event is operating to comply with  Covid-19 Regulations and will be operated at 1/3  normal capacity and each group entering will have their own area to play in the snow.

Snow4Kids is operating under Covid-19 regulations to make sure you and your family are as safe as possible.

To do this, we have created individual snow play zones for each group attending.

There will be 20 zones  each with benches surrounding our snow garden and these  zones will designate your own personal snow play area to ensure everyone is socially distancing.

The benches and zones will be cleaned and sanitised  before  every entry.

We use tap water to make fresh snow for you to play with during your session and SEQ water advise on their website that:

"There is no evidence that COVID-19 is transmitted by drinking water. "

"Existing water treatment and disinfection processes, including the use of chlorine, are effective in protecting water supplies."

Fresh snow and sanitised snow play equipment will be provided for you at the beginning of your session so you can create your own individual piece of snowman art and to make snowballs.

To comply with Covid19 restrictions there will be no tobogganing and free movement around the venue and we are required by law to screen all attendees and can refuse entry and offer a refund to any person showing Covid-19 symptoms.

Planning your Snow Experience

What to expect when you come to Snow4Kids 2020!

When you arrive:

Please queue on either the Left or Right side of the entrance to the Piazza.

Our capacity is set at a maximum of 60 people for the opening weekend which normally means 15 groups per session.

So that means 8 groups can wait on each side of the venue in the lines behind the Entrance Fence.

We have provided 30 metres of waiting area on each side of the South Bank Piazza and the floor will be marked with crosses to make sure that everyone is social distancing while they are waiting to enter the venue.

If you have forgotten to bring gloves for the children, you will be able to purchase them from the ticket box that is on the left-hand side of the Entrance to the South Bank Piazza.

Getting ready to build a Snow Man:

Our staff will scan your tickets on entry, and you will be asked to sanitise your hands before going to your allocated snow play area.

When you arrive in your area, you will receive a wheelbarrow full of freshly made snow for your group and freshly sanitised snow play equipment.

Our snow making staff will top you up with another wheelbarrow of snow during your session within 20 minutes of your arrival.

You will be able to build a snow man and throw snowballs gently within your group only!

To comply with health regulations, you must stay within your allocated area and observe social distancing at all times.

If you need anything during your visit our friendly staff will be available to help you.

When Leaving:

Our staff will direct you to the 2 exits on the Left and Right side of the Piazza as you leave the venue.

Please make sure you take all your belongings and take care when walking on the snow.

Our Appreciation to our Customers:

We want you to know how much we appreciate you coming to this year’s event.

We have had to modify the operation to make it as safe and satisfying for you as possible and provide the best snow experience without having all our normal snow activities.

We hope that you enjoy the “Snow in the Park” winter theme that we have created for you.

We look forward to your feedback after attending the event!

Does there need to be one adult per child for supervision? 

No. If you have one child, you will need at least one adult. But if, for example, one adult was to bring along 2 or 3 children alone, that would be fine. It is just important that all children are supervised by at least one adult.

No. All minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult aged 18 years and over.
