What to Expect
Whether you're into sports or not, the Adelaide Oval RoofClimb is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You'll take in incredible 360-degree views of Adelaide from the foothills to the coast and everything in between – there's blue sky stretching in all directions.
Discover the colourful and quirky stories that make Adelaide so unique as you venture over the roofline. Your experienced RoofClimb Leaders will guide you across the rooftop, along the purpose-built path. The adventure starts in the Western Stand, before making your way around to the Riverside Stand. Here you'll discover a world-first – stadium rooftop seating! Have a sit in one of the 16 chairs that are positioned 50 metres above the hallowed turf, and take a moment to sit back, relax, and really soak in the views of the city skyline.
Then, elevate your heart rate even further and get a huge adrenaline rush by leaning out, over the ground, tethered only by your safety harness. It's the ultimate thrill and gives you a brand new perspective on the venue.
The experience includes the provision of safety equipment and RoofClimb suit, safety briefing and a personal secure locker to store your belongings during your experience. You'll also get to take home a RoofClimb Cap, an achievement certificate, and a printed group photo. You can purchase additional photo packs.
