Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Oh my gosh, how exciting is this! The adrenaline-pumping Big Wedgie will be happening once again in Adelaide from Saturday 28 September to Sunday 13 October and then to ensure we all stay in our swimwear, again from Saturday 23 November all the way through to Sunday, 9 February 2020 - a whole summer of slippery, sliding, watery fun!

The Big Wedgie is not intended for the faint-hearted or the weak-kneed, but is rather aimed at adrenaline junkies and those seeking the thrill of a lifetime. The Big Wedgie is the tallest and most extreme stand-alone inflatable waterside in the entire universe, coming in at a ginormous 18.2 metres high and eighty-two metres long! Can you imagine that! What a beast!

The Big Wedgie boasts a gigantic fifty-five degree (as I mentioned, not for the faint-hearted) sheer drop down a steep slope, whilst being soaked in water. It also has a four-lane racer, ensuring that dare-devil families and buddies can compete together at the same time. Family and friends who play together, definitely stay together!
