Parties are welcome at SASMEE Park – and not just for birthdays!
We’d love you to host a party at SASMEE Park – and we would appreciate it if you could contact us with a rough estimate of numbers some time during the week leading up to the event.
Please be the first in your party to arrive. Be early!
SASMEE Park opens to the public at 1:30, with the first train rides leaving the station at 2pm.
We have a number of tables and picnic spaces available at SASMEE Park, but are unable to reserve one for you in advance. Please arrive before 1:30pm to claim your spot and pre-purchase your tickets from the gate.
Food + Decorations:
You may bring in any food and decorations you wish (including, of course, your cake!). If you prefer, our canteen can supply drinks and snacks for visitors. Please place large orders early in the day to avoid lengthy wait times.
Given the open nature of our park space, a large floating balloon can be a helpful way to let your guests know which party is yours!
Your guests may purchase their own tickets, but if you would prefer to offer them free entry, you must purchase tickets for your guests in advance. We cannot check guest lists or provide numbers at the end of the day. Yes, we have EFTPOS at the gate!
If you are choosing to purchase tickets in advance, please provide your guests with a voucher they can exchange at the gate for an entry ticket to the party. We have a sample voucher available, but you may prefer to make your own customised version. Please include a name (perhaps the birthday child’s), as well as the number of tickets the voucher is for – and remind your guests to bring their vouchers!
To avoid embarrassment, ensure the total number of tickets shown on the vouchers corresponds to the number you have purchased.
If we run out of tickets for your party, your guests may be asked to pay.
Please keep children under your control at ALL times.
On trains, children must be accompanied by an adult, with no more than four children per adult per ride.
Party planners and entertainers are not necessary at SASMEE and the enjoyment of other attendees and the SASMEE members must not be compromised. Permission must be obtained in writing for such activities.
Please REMOVE as much RUBBISH as possible (including all party decorations and wrapping paper). Discarded food not only makes the place look untidy, but it also attracts pests and vermin to our park. You brought it in, you take it away.
Our steam engines are real, and create real sparks, soot and steam.
You must wear fully-enclosed footwear – you might get dirty!
