We can’t let the grown-ups have all the fun, can we? The weekend will be host to many activities for children of all age groups and fandoms. At our event children 12 and under always get in for free* and many of our activities are free. 🙂
And yes we encourage kids of all ages to participate in our kid-friendly activities. If you’re a kid at heart, these activities are for you too!
*Note: Kids 12 and under get in for free with a paying adult (max 5 kids per adult, the first 3 are free, the 4th and 5th child are $2 each).
Our friends at Meepls to Go are running a mini board gaming convention at our event and there will be a number of games perfect for the whole family. There is no cost to playing any of the games. 🙂
The board gaming area will be at the back of Rink 3.
To help celebrate our ‘Team Spirit’ theme, we’ve come up with 18 carnival games for the whole family to play, including a Fortnite dancing game, Super Mario Bros. plinko, and pin-the-star-on-Captain-America’s-shield.
These games are inspired by famous teams from geek history, and are a lot of fun to play! The more of these games you play, the more prizes you could win, so be sure to play them all!
When you need a break at the event, we encourage your whole family to sit down in our colouring area, and colour a geeky image or two! You’ll find our colouring tables at the back of the Curling Rink in front of the Doctor Who booth.
Costumes & Costume Contest
Everyone is invited to wear a geeky costume at our event! About 1/3rd of our patrons come in costume, so it’s great opportunity for kids to get their photos taken with their favourite characters (just be sure to ask permission to take a photo first!). We’ll also be hosting a kids level costume contest. 🙂
Geek Quest (scavenger hunt)
We’re running 3 different Geek Quests this year and all 3 are appropriate for kids (they can complete as many tasks as they are able to) and there are tons of prizes to be won by participating! All of the scavenger hunts can be started in either the Curling Rink or Rink 3.
We are proud to be welcoming back Paint Me Playful who’ll be offering some amazing face painting options for all the geeks in your family. Her booth will be across from our huge LEGO display in Rink 3.
Each time someone participates in our scavenger hunt, plays a board game, or wins a carnival game at our event, they’ll be given tokens that they can use to pick up FREE prizes at our huge prize redemption booth located in the Curling Rink (beside our admissions area). We’ll have thousands of geeky prizes to choose from including lots for kids, so be sure to empty your piggy banks and plan some time to play games this March!
