Play, Learn, Build and Discover
If you have loved Brick-a-laide in past years, then you are going to be absolutely delighted with Kidz Gigantic Day Out (KGDO).
Stop looking for an activity to entertain the kids on the Easter long weekend because Adelaide's newest and most exciting kids event is here. From 10 am to 5 pm on Friday 30 and Saturday 31 March 2018 at the Adelaide Convention Centre, North Terrace, Adelaide Kidz Gigantic Day Out will incorporate four fun and interactive play zones, including Brick-a-laide, Active Kidz Come 'n' Try, Big Rigz and Science and Nature Play.
It is always exciting when events provide sensory friendly sessions, and Kidz Gigantic Day Out Sensory Friendly Sessions will be available from 9 am to 10 am on both days. Sessions will provide a supportive environment with low volume music and announcements, and reduced visitor numbers.
Unlike previous year's Brick-a-laide events, you will not be restricted to session times. Once you have entered, you are welcome to stay as long as you like (well until closing anyway).
Active Kidz Come 'n' Try will give the kids time to burn off some energy. Presented with SANFL and SACA, kids can try their hand at football or cricket or join the NERF challenge! Activities will include AFL Auskick, Milo Cricket and the Giant NERF Challenge.
Science Lab and Nature Play gives budding scientists and professors the opportunity to try their hand at experimenting. Kids can have some fun experimenting with science craft and electric circuits; make their own slime; get down and dirty with Bugs'n'slugs; learn all about native animals; how about Dig-a-Dino or learning at the Starlab Planetarium Experience. When all that is done, there is the indoor nature playground with sand pit, cubby building and fairy garden.
Lego fans who loved Brick-a-laide will not be disappointed with their favourite Lego fan event being incorporated into this massive day out line-up. All of your favourite things will still be here. There will be an unbeatable line-up of brick creations by local and interstate modellers and builders, a large range of retailers for you to stock up on your favourite pieces and creative Lego play areas.
Big Rigz will enable those budding truck or large equipment operators to inspect and explore a thrilling series of real life 'Big Rigz'. There will be fire engines, rescue boats, trucks and cranes and heaps of photo opportunities, so bring along your camera!
Food and drink will be available with affordable options on site. R Bar Regattas and the Home Ground Cafe Court located on the Adelaide Riverbank Promenade will be open during the event.
Parking is available at the Adelaide Convention Centre's North Terrace and Riverbank car parks at the festival parking rate of $10 for KGDO ticket holders. You must however ensure that you validate your car parking ticket once you are inside the event.
Disabled access is available throughout the venue and the car parks.
The Convention Centre can be accessed by public transport with bus and tram stops available along North Terrace and in front of the Adelaide Railway Station.
