SAFETY AND OHS INFORMATION
SPLATT! Sponge Attack has completed all necessary safety checks according to Queensland Police and WHS standards. Extensive checks were undertaken with QLD Police and approval for their use in this controlled environment was given. To ensure safety of our 'guns', relevant risk assessment documentation has been completed and is continually monitored.
SPLATT! Sponge Attack maintains an active online and social media presence, which means that we will be taking photos of players during your event. We do our best to ensure that none of our players can be identified (face masks on) unless expressed by themselves or legal guardians. However, photographs of our amusement set up within a large community event will be taken, in line with the organisers media policies.
If your event is a private or business event, we will do our best to ensure that your branding and employees are not visible or recognisable in our materials, unless otherwise expressed by the organiser prior to the event.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does it hurt?
It depends how well you hide. But generally, yes, you will be able to feel it! (Have you ever been flicked with a tea-towel?)
It is recommended that children use relatively dry pellets with their shields down. Wet pellets will generally hurt more than dry ones. The amount of clothing worn by players will also influence the impact.
What does it shoot?
Mid-density proprietary-cut sponge pellets laden with water and propelled by compressed air.
Will I get wet?
That depends on how much your friends or opponents dislike you. Generally speaking, yes the pellets will leave a wet SPLATT! mark (hence the name) and the degree of saturation depends on how good you are at hiding behind your shield...
Who can play?
Anyone is allowed to play in the SPLATT! tent, the only requirement being that their mask stays in place and on their head for the duration of the match. Parents are invited to get in and help younger children to play at no extra cost.
Can I buy one?
Yes, our patented machines are available but at this stage they are only legal and approved for use in Queensland. Contact Steve on 0417532303
