S4K Christmas Edition Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in the Snow4Kids Christmas Edition?

Snow4Kids Christmas Edition features a mix of snow powered and snow themed attractions. Snow4Kids visitors can enjoy racing down our snow toboggan hill, throw real snowballs at a selection of different targets, get their grove on at the falling snow disco or burn of some energy by having a fun little “snow”-ball fight in our Snow Dome. Please note that that the Snow Dome is a snow themed attraction and the “snow”-balls are foam to guarantee everybody’s safety. Please do not throw REAL snowballs at people at any time

How much time do I get to spend at Snow4Kids Christmas Edition?

Each Snow4Kids Christmas Edition session runs for 50 minutes. These sessions begin on the hour every hour.
Session times are as following: 9am, 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm, 6pm, 7pm, 8pm.

Can I go to any session that I want?

You may book any session that you wish to attend (subject to availability). However, you are not able to enter the attraction until the date and time you have purchased your ticket for.

How much does it cost?
This year, we decided to simplify our ticketing structure and create one General Admission ticket for all people entering the park priced at $20. 
Early Bird Tickets are available for purchase online at $15 per person until December 13
th 12pm AEST.

Please note that online purchases will incur a $1.50 ticketing fee per ticket. 
Babies 12 months and under may enter the park for free with a paying adult. 

Children 8  years and under must be accompanied by an adult carer that is holding a valid ticket.

Where can I buy tickets?
You can purchase tickets online. We recommend booking online in advance to save disappointment as the most popular sessions sell out very quickly and often have no tickets available at the venue on the day.
If you do not wish to purchase tickets online, we will have any unsold tickets available for purchase at the Ticketbooth at the venue on the day.

PLEASE NOTE: We can only sell tickets at the ticket booth for that day. We are unable to sell tickets for future dates at the ticket booth. Tickets are strictly limited for every session. Once they are gone they are gone.

Can you have a snowball fight?
Snow4Kids Christmas Edition sees a lot of very young customers. To ensure their safety snowball fights with real snowballs are not allowed.  Snowballs made from real snow can be painful and cause serious health damage when they hit people, especially young children. To keep everybody safe and happy there will be a selection of fun targets to throw real snowballs at.

Can adults participate? 
Snow4Kids encourages adults to get active and enjoy the fun with their children. You are welcome to slide down the snow toboggan run, enjoy the Snow Dome and assist your children as needed. We ask adults to not throw real snowballs to ensure the safety of our young customers. We kindly ask children over 12 to only throw snowballs very lightly and be mindful of the younger children around them. Thank you.

Can I have my child’s birthday party here? 
You are welcome to bring multiple children to the event as a birthday type of event however we do not specifically host birthday parties. If you would like to buy a large amount of tickets, please send an email to

My child is one, do they need a paying ticket?
Children 12 months and under are free WITH a paying adult.
12 months and over require a full paying ticket.

What are the age restrictions?
We recommend the Snow4Kids Christmas Edition for children aged 12 and under, but of course each child is different and may respond differently to the attractions (some may be more or less amused than others despite age). Snow4Kids Christmas will have two different sized toboggan hills this year to accommodate for children of different ages. If older children are attending, they will need to be mindful of the younger children in the Park.
Due to safety concerns we ask adults to not throw real snowballs and children over the age of 12 to only throw snowballs very lightly. Thank you.

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. If you are accompanying many children alone, the amount you are comfortable with supervising alone is at your discretion.

My child is a teenager, can I leave them there alone or leave them to supervise my younger child alone?
No. All minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult aged 18 years and over.

Where can I park?
There are numerous car parks in the area.
The closest one would be the Southbank Parklands car park.
There is also the Cultural Precinct Carparks and the Convention and Exhibition Centre Car Park. All of these car parks are paid and vary in price. Please refer to their websites for more information.
There is limited metered street parking in the area with a maximum time limit of 2 hours in most cases.

Can I get there by public transport? 
Yes! there is lots of public transport in the area. Our venue (The South Bank Piazza) is very close to both the Southbank Railway Station and the South Brisbane Railway Station. Aditionally, the Cultural Centre Busway is just a short walk past QPAC and through the Parklands away from us.

Do you offer a discount for group bookings?
Yes! We offer a 20% discount for group bookings of 20 people or more. Please contact directly for more information or to book. Please note that tickets must be paid for at least 2 weeks prior to the booked session in full.
