Click on a question to see the answer:

1. Why can I only select the 13th of December when booking my ticket?

We know that life with little ones and family can get chaotic. To make your life easier, we have elected to setup our booking system in such a way that only one date may be selected, so that you do not have to commit to a date before the event. Once your booking has been made, you are welcome to attend on the 11th or 12th or 13th depending on how best Starlight fits into your schedule.

2. Until what age does my child qualify for the ‘kids’ rate?

Children under and including 12 years old, qualify as children and will pay the ‘kids’ entrance fee.

3. I see the event starts at 17:00 each day. Does that mean we need to arrive at 17:00 or could we come later?

Please scroll up to have a look at the Starlight programme under the ‘What to Expect’ header.

4. I’m trying to block book for multiple people on Quicket, but the page keeps expiring before I’m done. Help!

Quicket has set an expiry time to make sure your transaction is as secure as possible. If you are attempting to book for multiple people, please book them in groups of 5 or so, so that the page does not expire before you are done and your transaction is as secure as possible.

5. Can I draw cash at the entrance?

There will be a Nedbank ATM machine available at Starlight to draw cash, however, you will not be able to pay for your entrance, rides or food with a bank card. This does not mean that you can’t use your card to draw cash to pay for these things, of course. There will also be Zapper available to pay for your entrance, rides and food. Zapper is a mobile app available for your Apple or Android device whereby you can securely pay using your phone. To download Zapper, visit

6. Can I book for multiple people under my name?

As you walk through the gate, we will match your name with our records of bookings. Bookings for multiple people under one name, makes it tricky to correctly match each patron with a booking. You might get away with it if you make sure that everyone you booked for stands in the same spot in the entrance queue and attends on the same night. But if possible, please avoid booking in this way to avoid confusion.
