RoofClimb operates in all weather conditions – it adds to the experience! This includes rain, wind and sunshine!

We also reschedule climbs during extreme heat.
The experience from welcome to debrief will be approximately 2 hours. Check-in is required a minimum of 15 minutes before your set briefing time.

Your RoofClimb will start and finish at Adelaide Oval’s Western Stand, with briefing and debriefing taking place in the RoofClimb Centre, located in the South West corner on Level 1, Riverbank Stand.
The experience will take you across the Western Stand, over a link bridge to the Riverbank Stand located at the Southern end of Adelaide Oval, and back across the Western Stand to exit.
No — we recommend that you wear comfortable, rubber-soled shoes with sufficient grip, so your running, hiking or sport shoes will be perfect. PVC and leather-soled shoes are not ideal as they can be slippery on the grated walkway.
You will need to prepare for:
- Moderate physical exertion at heights of up to 50 metres
- Outdoor walking and climbing unaided for approximately 1.25km
- Climbing up and down ladders and multiple flights of stairs
- Walking on open metal grate walkways and a stepped bridge
- Undertaking the conditions above while wearing safety equipment weighing approximately 9kg
- Exposure to weather conditions that might include sun, rain, moderate wind and heat
- There will be periodic rest stops but you will remain standing and will not have access to toilets, shade, water or seating
Unfortunately, no. RoofClimb is not accessible by wheelchair or walking aids, given that the climb requires participants to climb ladders, steps and walk the pathways unassisted.
The Adelaide Oval Stadium Tours are fully accessible by wheelchair and walking aids as an alternative experience.
Children aged 8 years and older may participate in RoofClimb.
Children 8 years to 15 years must be accompanied by a paying adult (maximum of 3 children per adult) and adhere to the minimum height requirement of 120cm.
Not at all! Anyone who can pass the medical clearance and other necessary checks, and who are comfortable and capable of climbing ladders and stairs should be fine to take in the stunning views and breathtaking RoofClimb experience.
Participants aged 75 years and over will need to provide a signed Medical Clearance Form from their doctor at the time of check-in or up to 7 days prior.
No, unfortunately not. As the RoofClimb path extends over open areas, participants cannot take any loose objects with them including cameras, GoPros, phones, tablet devices. This is due to WH&S regulations to safeguard against objects dropping and potentially injuring people below, or being lost in Adelaide Oval’s turf potentially leading to player injury.
The RoofClimb Leaders are professionally trained in photography to capture your best moments during the experience. All participants will receive a complimentary photo as part of your RoofClimb with additional images available to purchase from the RoofClimb Centre.
Yes. Every RoofClimb will have its own dedicated RoofClimb Leader who will be with them from start to finish.
