It’s the karaoke machine of our dreams (or nightmares!)

Pick a song: ‘Spice Up Your Life’, ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ or ‘Despacito’, if you must. Hop aboard the merry-go-round and sing it out to your heart’s content.

This Sydney Festival gem is just one of the many sideshow activities you can entertain yourself with at Hyde Park this summer. There’s also a 10 Minute Dance Party in a shipping container, swimming pools, a glitter box and a digital Ghost Train.

This one is the most flamboyant. It costs $5 a pop, and you can ride around on those pogoing unicorns solo or part of a chorus.

Yes they have microphones. Yes there’s an almighty karaoke playlist. And yes you can hog that carousel for the full five minutes, 57 seconds of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ if you like. Bust a lung!

The most kid-friendly times are from 4.30-6pm or on Sundays, which are Disney song days. On Tuesday January 9, it’s all about the Wedding Singer. On January 16 & 23, there’ll be b2b country classics.
