New 'Ride Buddies' ready to help parents & carers these school holidays

Posted on 23 December, 2017

Children won’t have to miss out on riding an attraction at Adventure Park this summer, thanks to a new initiative we launched on Boxing Day to assist parents and carers these school holidays.

It's Adventure Park's answer to super heroes, think X-Men, The Avengers or Power Rangers.

Ride Buddies will be on call around the Park to ride the gamut of coasters and waterslides (such as the new Tornado) with children if their parents are busy looking after younger children or unable to ride.

Likewise, Ride Buddies can wait with and supervise the group's non-riding children while the parent enjoys the attraction with their child.

We understand that sometimes it's difficult for families if they have multiple children of various ages wanting to go on the many different rides available at the Park.

This is a great new service if you have a child that would like to go on a ride but you're unable to or have other children to look after.

To call on a Ride Buddy simply speak to one of our friendly ride operators at any one of our attractions around the Park.

 

Get to know our Ride Buddies

Five rockstar team members have been selected for this special role and each have been at the Park for a number of years and know their way around, making them great ambassadors.

And like all our team, our Ride Buddies have current Working with Children Checks.

Aaron

My fave Adventure Park ride
"By far my favourite ride would have to be the Tornado!"

My fave holiday destination
"Singapore! They have the best food and some pretty amazing buildings."

If I were a food
"I'd have to say chicken nuggets, because they are so deliciously yummy!"

If I were a super hero I would be
"I don't really have a fave hero but the Joker would have to be my fave villian!"


 

Bridget 

 

My fave Adventure Park ride
"Definitely the Aqua Racer, i love the adrenaline rush from the race and that you're able to ride with your friends and family."

My fave holiday destination
"Canada in the winter.  I love to go snowboarding and skiing with my family in the snow over there."

If I were a food
"I'd be chocolate because I would taste delicious and when I'm eaten I'd make a lot of people happy!"

If I were a super hero I would be
"Batman, because he doesn't necessarily have any super powers, he's just an ordinary man who has dedicated his life to saving others, I think that's pretty impressive."

"I love Japan! They have awesome theme parks and such an amazing culture."

Izzy

My fave Adventure Park ride
"My favourite before the Tornado was the Aqua Racer, but I think the Tornado has to be number one now"

Jayde 

My fave Adventure Park ride
"Definitely the Tornado!!!"

My fave holiday destination
"I'd have to say Japan, the snow is absolutely beautiful and the food is to die for!"

If I were a food
"I'd be a strawberry covered in melted chocolate, because why not, I mean who doesn't love some fresh fruit and melted chocolate!!! Perfect combination."

If I were a super hero I'd be
"Harley Quinn, Wanda Maximoff or Veronica Lodge"
