Summer Play Factor (SPF)

What’s better than an Aussie summer?

SPF – Summer Play Factor by Flipside is a buoyant, fun-filled show for families that combines amazing circus skills and infectious energy celebrating all the great Australian summer traditions that we know and love.

Hurling water pistols, pool noodles, ice cream juggling routines, inflatables and sharks during the day at SCOOP! get comfy on the shore of the lake and enjoy a colourful summer smoothie of circus fun.

This January we’ve got everything you want from summer in one sweet weekend at SCOOP!

Soak up the sun during the day and head lakeside for our epic line-up of ice cream and desserts with more world class circus, splash play and live music, and plenty more.

For those seeking summer fun with a bit of sizzle as the sun sets, head on down to Club SCOOP! our evening program of zany sideshows, cocktails and craft beers, where the naughty side of circus and cocktails collide.
