The Ginger Factory is my grandson's absolute favourite fun destination and the annual pass for $50 has been an absolute lifesaver as we visit at every opportunity, knowing we have unlimited rides, at no extra cost.

'All Day Play' or Annual Pass?


Much to everyone's delight, the Gruffalo appears to have permanently taken up residence at The Ginger Factory and has his 'claws' firmly entrenched on the Rainforest Trail. Meander through the Ginger Factory's rainforest and follow the trail in search of The Gruffalo's friends - Mouse, Fox, Owl and Snake and, of course, if you're really lucky, you may even spot the Gruffalo himself. The Gruffalo and his friends are all reachable using the FREE augmented reality app on Apple Store here or on Goggle Play Store here.
