General

Designed just for kids aged 5-12 years, this Nickelodeon experience will be the event of the year where kids will #OWNTHEFOAM!

 Modelled off the highly successful and hugely popular 5k Foam Fest, this interactive, physically charged event will have kids challenging themselves to conquer the 10 Nickelodeon branded obstacles and take on the mayhem and madness in between, all across a 1K course. Every kid that finishes will be presented with a medal on the podium, all while being cheered along by their friends and family.

The Nickelodeon 1K Foam Fest is an immersive experience with 10 Nickelodeon themed obstacles across a 1 kilometer course, designed specifically for kids ages 5-12. The 5K Foam Fest is a 5 kilometer obstacle course with over 22 obstacles geared towards kids (8 and up) and adults (without Nickelodeon themes).

You can take on the course however you like (running is optional). Walk it, Jog it, Run it, Sprint it, just experience it!

If you are feeling a little nervous about being able to complete an obstacle, no worries! Staff and volunteers are placed throughout the course and they are ready to leap into action and help you through an obstacle. Or, if you feel you shouldn’t do an obstacle for any reason, our staff will help you around it. All obstacles are optional.

The course can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes to complete based on your age, ability and speed.

A parent/guardian or caregiver must accompany any kids participating in the Nickelodeon 1K Foam Fest course and be onsite to supervise throughout the day. No parents will be allowed inside the course. This is a kids only zone.

Please make sure you have your tickets ready to go on your digital device upon entry. You will also need to bring a valid ID.

While the Nickelodeon 1K Foam Fest course is designed just for kids we encourage you to follow along and snap your own pics and videos to capture as many memories as possible.

The Nickelodeon Foam Festival area is accessible. We have priority parking available for spectators/carers (signage required). The obstacles on the course may not be suitable for everyone, if you require assistance to participate in the event please contact us to discuss your support needs info@nickfoamfest.com.

We ask that all participants do their bit to ensure a safe event as well, this includes:
