WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO ATTEND?

You’ll need to purchase a ticket online via Eventbrite. There is a waiver at the checkout that each attendee needs to read and accept before you make payment. Once this is completed you’ll receive an email from Eventbrite with your tickets.

ID is required for every guest when you check in. We cannot allow entry to any guest who does not have a ticket in their name (with matching ID). Please bring proof of age for children.

DO I NEED TO LIST EVERYONE IN MY GROUP WHEN I BOOK?

Yes! We cannot allow entry to any guest who does not have a ticket in their name (with matching ID) so please ensure that you name everyone in your booking. If you don’t know exactly who’s coming, or if you have a change of plans, you can change the name on any of your tickets through Eventbrite. This must be done before you arrive.

CAN I BUY TICKETS IN PERSON?

We recommend booking online to guarantee entry, as sessions are often booked out. Limited tickets may be available at the Candyland entrance.

CAN I CANCEL MY BOOKING?

Sorry, no. Bookings are strictly non-refundable for any reason. If you are unable to attend you may be able to transfer your ticket to another session for a limited time through Eventbrite (fees apply), or transfer it to another person. Tickets purchased with gift vouchers can not be refunded or transferred.  ID will be requested when you arrive.

IS IT FOR KIDS  OR GROWN-UPS?

Sugar Republic was created for grown-ups to re-live their childhood memories in an Instragrammable space.  It is not a children’s play centre. Well-behaved children are welcome but they must be under supervision at all times. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Adults accompanying children will need their own ticket.

HOW LONG WILL MY VISIT TAKE?

Your ticket is valid for 1.5 hours. This includes time walking between the venues and waiting to enter.

Begin your journey at any of the three venues and finish within 1.5 hours.

The ball pits have a 10 minute time limit.

If you arrive late you will still need to leave within 1.5 hours from the time on your ticket.

On Friday and Saturday evenings children under 18 are not allowed in any venue after 7pm. Please ensure to finish your visit with kids before this time. We recommend booking children’s tickets no later than 5.30pm to allow yourself enough time.

WHAT ARE THE NIGHT SESSIONS?

Night sessions from 6.30pm are only for adults 18+ as we know that some guests prefer to experience Sugar Republic without children. Please note that last entry for children is 6pm, so there may still be children inside until 7pm. For a completely child-free experience we suggest booking a slot from 7pm onwards. Important: guests under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed entry into Sugar Republic.

WHAT HAPPENS AT CHECK IN?

Our team will check your ticket when you arrive at your first venue. You will be asked for ID. Bags and coats will need to be checked in.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Bring your ticket, your ID, your phone/camera and your sweet self.

Some of the experiences require that you remove your shoes so please wear socks or tights, as you may not be allowed to participate with bare feet.

CAN I BRING A PRAM?

Prams are not permitted inside the exhibit but they can be parked near our entrance at Candyland (at owners’ risk).

DO YOU HAVE TOILETS?

There are restrooms throughout Pacific Fair, and each restroom includes a fully equipped parents’ area.

CAN I HOLD A PRIVATE EVENT?

Yes indeed! We love hosting birthday parties, hen parties, team building events and product launches. Please email [email protected] to discuss your special event or to find out about our corporate and party packages.

DO YOU OFFER GROUP DISCOUNTS?

Yes, we welcome corporate and large group bookings. Please email[email protected] for details.

ARE PETS ALLOWED?

Sugar Republic rooms are almost all wheelchair accessible, but please note that some activities and rooms may not be suitable for visitors with disabilities. If you have any questions before your visit please email [email protected].

Are you serious? We encourage it. Please note that selfie sticks and tripods are not permitted though. Our staff love taking photos for you, just ask.

Commercial and product photo shoots are strictly NOT allowed, unless by prior agreement. Please email [email protected] to arrange a commercial shoot.

IS FOOD SERVED AT THE EVENT?

Sugar Republic is primarily a pop up art event and a space for taking photos. It is NOT a lolly factory or a food fair, however we do usually have free tastings on offer for our sugar-loving visitors. This includes dairy free and gluten free options – please ask our staff for further information.Please note that age 0-2 infant tickets do not include tastings other than ice cream and fairy floss.

I HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY. WILL I BE ABLE TO EAT THE TASTINGS?

There is a selection of tastings at Sugar Republic. Please note that our kitchen handles wheat, eggs, milk, soy and tree nuts, and all of our food samples and treats may come into contact with these. If you have any food allergies or requirements please ask our staff for assistance.

CAN I BRING MY OWN FOOD AND DRINK?

Food and drink are not allowed in.

IS EACH EVENT THE SAME?

Every Sugar Republic event is a little different, and we also change the installations at each event from time to time. If you are hoping to visit a particular feature that you’ve seen online please check with us to see if it is currently on show.

IS IT GOING TO BE AMAZING?
