Monster Siege a big day out
Words by Moreton Daily

Calling all kids of Moreton Bay.

It’s time to let out your inner monster with a full day of adventure at the South Pine Sports Complex!

Get ready for a clash of epic proportions where kids unite in the ultimate battle of Monster Siege, a game of imagination, physicality and strategy against their dastardly foes: the adults!

Defend magical rubber ducks from an onslaught of adult “slobbers” and band together with other kids in a quest to triumph.

The leader of the adults, King Slobber, has a few tricks up his sleeve so you’ll need to work with each other and the Game Master to emerge victorious.

It's just as much fun to be a barracker and cheer on the teams from the sidelines with chants, pom-poms, banners and monster face paint.

Your actions from the sidelines can influence the outcome of the game, so get involved!

City of Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery says Monster Siege is a must-do event  during the Easter school holidays.

“We’re thrilled to bring Monster Siege by Folly Games to Moreton Bay,” he says.

“This exhilarating game of imagination, creativity and strategy is an immersive experience for kids of all ages and abilities.

“It’s the ultimate battle of kids against adults and the best part is, it’s absolutely free!”

Your ticket to a world of excitement

Plus, there’s heaps more fun to be had for everyone, with a raft of free activities from Moreton Bay gallery, library and museum teams including:
