All rides start at 10am and run until 3pm.

The Rides at the Ashgrove State School Mother’s Day Fete are second to none, and the best rides you’ll see outside of the EKKA.

We incorporate a variety of rides to cater for all ages, from the high thrill carnival action for the older children, right through to the smaller rides providing magical family fun for all. We partner with Queensland Amusement Hire to ensure your family enjoys a fun, exiting and safe experience, with professional, experienced and friendly staff on hand all day.

For those who like their fast and furious thrill rides, this year we will be showcasing some fantastic new rides along with some old favourites, including the Hurricane, the Whizzer, the Party Machine (also known as the Dominator) and our new ride (which also appears at the Ekka), the Wave Swinger. For carnival classic family fun, we have the Jumbo Slide, Laser Tag, Mini Golf and new to Ashgrove this year, our first ever Roller Coaster! It also wouldn’t be a Fete without providing for our little people – see their faces light up in delight on the favourite Tea Cup Ride, the Bouncy Castles and the Sesame Swings. See below for pictures and more details of our rides.

Purchasing an All Day Ride pass is the most economical way for your child to experience the rides at the Fete, providing unlimited access to all rides for the duration of the Fete (excluding the pony rides and animal enclosure). Individual tickets will also be available.
