RoofClimb Adelaide Oval will take tour groups across the Oval's unique roof top. Climbers will walk on the top of the Western and Riverbank stands with tours running in the daytime, at sunset and at night. Whichever time you choose, it's bound to offer amazing views and be an incredible experience.

In a world-first for this type of activity, RoofClimb Adelaide Oval will include 16 seats as part of a roof deck on the Riverbank Stand. It will provide a chance to enjoy the views and sit and relax for a few minutes. Imagine having this birds eye view when there's an event happening at the Oval?

For those who want a little added excitement, there will be the opportunity to 'lean out' over the ground from a deck high above the southern goal square. Not for the faint-hearted - you'll be tethered only by a harness!

Roof climbers will be provided with special jump (haha) suits and each climber will be attached by ropes and harnesses. Professional instructors will guide the group of climbers. Groups have a maximum of 14 people.

Each climber will take home a complimentary printed group photo, RoofClimb cap and an achievement certificate.
