Silverstar Is Going All Out With Hot Entertainment This Winter!

Forget staying indoors this winter, there’s plenty of thrills and excitement happening at Silverstar that’ll keep those pesky chills at bay. From a Christmas Festival (in June), kids entertainment galore and soul sessions, there’s something for everyone. 

Don’t Miss The Bavarian Christmas Festival

Yes, we know it’s not December! But, since it’s winter, Silverstar thought it would add to the feel of their spectacular Bavarian Christmas Festival. The open parking area will be transformed into a typical Bavarian town square, complete with all the traditional bells and whistles, as well as an authentic Oompah Band. Expect everything from soul warming, mouth-watering Bavarian delicacies like Eisbein and Bratwurst, a comprehensive selection of cold beverages and plenty of popular winter warmers including gluhwein for the grownups and hot chocolate for the little ones. There will also be a village market for visiting townsfolk complete with interesting exhibitors, an amusement park, pictures with the ever-popular and beloved Santa Claus and roaming buskers.

Nik Rabinowitz Brings The Comedy!

Having recovered from his early-onset midlife crisis just in time for Cape Town to almost become the world’s first city to run out of water, stand-up comedian Nik Rabinowitz decided to explore Cape Town’s 2018 water crisis for his show, Dry White. Mostly because everyone thought the drought was going to last forever, which in case you missed it, #SpoilerAlert – it didn’t. After mother nature rained on his parade, Nik was forced to discuss other stuff too – like love, marriage, infidelity, transphobia, staying woke post forty and when the land should be given back.

  • Time: Doors open at 19:00 | Show starts at 20:00

School Holiday Fun For The Little Ones!

The school holidays are just around the corner, and if you have no idea how you’re going to keep the little ones entertained for the next few weeks, then check out what Silverstar has to offer. There’s fun and thrills for children of all ages at Silverstar from Saturday, 15 June 2019 to Sunday, 07 July 2019.

Lots of Square Fun        

Visit the Silverstar Square for some kiddies’ entertainment including: pedal karts, sand art and ceramic painting, colourful face painting and balloon sculpting. Tickets for the pedal karts available on the Square.

There’ll Be An Amusement Park!

Silverstar will have a variety of amusement rides to thrill the kids during the school holidays!

Crazy Wave – Hang onto your hats! The Crazy Wave is definitely going to take everyone for a spin. This ride is a huge crowd-pleaser. Experience a free falling sensation while going around in circular motions. The ride gives the ultimate thrill.

Sky Rider – A unique attraction that appeals to both young and old, as well as the adventurous and the timid rider. The Sky Rider offers spectacular views while flying through the sky. No other family attraction combines safety and thrills like the Star Flyer.

Music Box – Want to go faster? This ride is for you! The Music Box propels riders around in an orbit-like pattern on one of its three arms. It sends the riders rapidly towards each other and just as it feels like a collision is imminent, the oncoming cars move away, leaving you breathless and screaming for more.

Hully Gully – Put the pedal to the metal! A crowd favorite for all ages, the Hully Gully will take guests zooming up and down, spinning around and around. The forces of Hully Gully will leave you smiling.

There will also be a Fun House, Carousel and much more.
