Gift Experiences for Adelaide Kids – avoid “too much stuff!”

We’ve come up with some great Adelaide gift experiences for kids, including memberships, tickets, gift vouchers and other “non-stuff” gift ideas for you to consider this year. At the end of the day life is about experiences, not stuff……right?

Give someone a Big Wedgie for Christmas!


The Big Wedgie is back for the Summer School Holidays! And they’ve got 2 new slides that will make this season it’s biggest yet…

The Big Wedgie team are excited to introduce a new, extreme addition to their West Beach event: The Big Chucka! The Big Chucka welcomes thrill-seekers to experience a vertical free fall! An exhilarating 80 degree plunge, catapulting riders up to 8 meters into the air onto an inflatable pillow.

Less extreme but perfect for little kids, The Little Skidda joins the event as a fantastic addition for children aged 6 and under! It’s an inflatable slip ‘n’ slide and the first of it’s kind to hit Australia.

The Big Wedgie also consists of it’s namesake slide, The Big Wedgie – which was awarded the world record for the world’s tallest freestanding inflatable waterslide in 2015! Rounding out the show are 2 family-friendly waterslides: The Just Right Wedgie, and The Little Wedgie – which has been newly redesigned to be less extreme, but still loads of fun for younger kids! An even littler Wedgie, if you will…

The Big Wedgie event is made up of 5 awesome slides that are perfect for all ages and thrill levels. Fun for the whole family!
