We make hosting your party or group a breeze at Hangdog. You can either self cater or take advantage of our Pizza Party Deal! Hangdog will order your $7.95 pizzas on the day (minimum 3 pizzas per order). Bring your own soft drinks along or purchase them off us. We have a great selection of coffee, tea, cold drinks and ice creams on site.

Hangdog provides a microwave oven for use if you choose to self cater plus we also have BBQ facilities available. If you'd like to use the BBQ, please let us know when you book.

Parties for children under 12.

The ideal ratio is one parent per three children to hold ropes for the children climbing (full instruction provided). Hangdog recommends on parent per three children at all times.

Parties for children aged 12 to 17 years.

Children 12 years and over do not require adults to hold the ropes for them as they are capable of being taught to belay (hold the ropes) for each other. (Children will be assessed by Hangdog staff before they assist their climbing partner). Although they require an adult to sign them in before commencing any activities.
