Where Is Mudtopia?
Inside the Race Course on Fenton St in Rotorua, Arawa Park for those in the know. Just a 5-minute walk to the CBD
What do I Wear?
Good question. We reckon it’s worth bringing a set of ‘dirty clothes’ (maybe your togs? This mud is very similar to water in consistency), a towel and a change of clothes for once you’ve cleaned up. We’ll provide showering and changing facilities as well as a bag storage area to keep your change of clothes whilst you’re off having muddy fun! More information and details will be updated soon, including merchandise options to purchase onsite to protect your clothes, camera’s and phones!
Can I have some beersies and/or wine?
If you are 18years or older, you can access one of the Licensed Areas and drink alcohol. BYO to Mudtopia is not permitted and everyone will be subject to a search on entry. Alcohol will not be served to people under 18yrs of age, or people who have got over-excited (intoxicated)
Eek – I’m Keen As, But My Phone Is Anti-Water & Mud!?
Yeah we get it, phones are right up there with oxygen in life. So how can you snap, post and gram knowing your tech is safe and sound? That’s why we have we have a range of waterproof bags to keep dearest near and safe
I Go Hard All Day But My Phone Can’t Keep Up
Sweet as, we’ll have charging stations dotted throughout the Festival to keep you online and social. PS – it will pay to bring your own cord
Mud Stage: 1 out of 10
Generally speaking, chilling out enjoying the music and entertainment on the Mud stage isn’t going to get you too muddy. That said, Mud Fountains will be dotted around this area so by all means, the opportunity is there to keep the mud momentum real!
Mud Arena: 10 out 10
Right OK, this is where things get seriously muddy, seriously quickly. The Mud Arena is a must-do for experiencing muddy madness. Prepare to get extremely muddy and have an absolute blast!
Mud Wellness: 1 out of 10
The daily Walk/Jog and Yoga Kickstart camps are mud free except for the free mud facial pack you can choose to apply onsite. There will be Mud Fountains positioned throughout the festival for all to enjoy. Suitable for face & body painting, experience Rotorua’s natural skincare wonder
Mud Run: 8 out of 10
A Mud Run isn’t a mud run without mud. And we have plenty of the finest mud this earth can produce. Whilst you may be able to avoid some of the muddier mud if you choose, this ‘Mud Run’ (jog/walk or crawl) isn’t for those wanting to stay clean…
Mud Indulge: 1 out of 10
Mud Indulge is the name which describes the many Day Spa treatments and Mud Cosmetic ranges available onsite at Mudtopia and offsite (you can get a free shuttle to and from the Festival to any number of local businesses). So in terms of Mud Factor it’s dependent on what you choose to do. A hot mud bath will get very muddy, a mud massage or Mud Facial ‘partly muddy’ or a regular massage and beauty treatment (e.g. Pedicure, Manicure) – not muddy at all.
Mud Games: 6 out of 10
Mud Games are all about having fun and you ultimately choose how muddy you’ll become, depending on which games you choose and how hard-core you go!
