School Holidays at EQ
The beauty of Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park is that everything is contained in one airy, safe precinct with lots of parking nearby. There are so many food and entertainment options all just a short stroll from each other, you could come everyday and still find something new to do. It’s the perfect, easy solution for the school holidays. Many of these venues offer party, group, and function bookings too.
Experience the thrill and speed of go-cart racing without the toxic fumes and deafening noise. Hyper Karts are electric, made with German precision. They’re safe, fast and lots of fun. The track is 410m long, imitates a real Formula 1 course, and is located on Level 5 of the EQ carpark. It’s suitable for adults aged 12 and over, and there’s a mini version for kids aged 3-12. Brrrooom.
For a first class film-going experience come to the state-of-the-art Hoyts cinemas at EQ. Twelve theatres showing the latest releases as well as classic favourites; wide, plush recliner seats with plenty of leg room; motion recliners that move with the on-screen action; ultra-realistic Samsung Onyx LED screen. While the kids watch a G, you can enjoy an M in HOYTS LUX with curated menu and premium wine.
A great venue for burning off excess energy and having some competitive fun. Multi-million dollar laser tag arena, mind-boggling escape room, uninhibited karaoke, and eight colour, light and music filled bowling lanes. Tasty food for fuel available from Randos Sandos and full-stocked bar for grown-ups. Book a few lanes for a great family night out.
It’s like a neon-lit cave filled with real treasures. A fantastic range of arcade games including timeless classics like Space Invaders and old school pinball machines; NBA hoop toss; dance machines; claw grabbers; Mario Kart video games, and heaps more. Accumulate points and choose prizes from the awesome pawn shop. Fab cocktails for over 18s.
Young ones can do what they love best: be creative and get their hands into icky sticky stuff. Kids can choose from a range of cute plaster statues to paint and take home; or they can make a batch of non-toxic coloured/glittery/crunchy/fluffy slime. Parties and packages with snack options available. Special slime workshops available during school holidays.
How about a session of skiing or snow-boarding without having to drive for hours, hire expensive equipment, and deal with actual cold, wet, snow? These high tech simulators realistically recreate the feel and motion of skiing while keeping you safe and dry. Visuals on a big screen help complete the illusion. Perfect for practice, learning, or just for the buzz.
