Terms and Conditions


Every slide at The Big Wedgie event has rules specific to that slide. These rules have been established for your safety and the safety of all other sliders and therefore must be adhered to at all times.

Please click here to view detailed rules for each slide.

At a glance:

  • The Big Wedgie: Min. 1.2m tall; Max. 110kg
  • The Just Right Wedgie: Min. 0.8m tall; Max. 50kg
  • The Little Wedgie and The Little Skidda: Min. 0.8m tall; Max. 40kg
  • The Big Chucka: Min. 1.4m tall; Max. 110kg

All rules include an understanding that all slides are for single sliders only and that multiple sliders cannot go down together at the same time (i.e. a parent is not permitted to use the slide with a child on their lap). The Big Wedgie events are only suitable for sliders who can climb the stairs and go on the slides by themselves. All sliders with special needs are asked to contact The Big Wedgie team in advance, as these special needs are assessed on a case-by-case basis.
