Do something different this Christmas at Event City
It can seem like all anyone does is shop at Christmas but there is so much more fun to be had over the holidays. Why not treat the family to an experience instead of endless presents this year and do something completely different at the Winter Wonderland.

The indoor theme park is located at Event City in Urmston, next to the Trafford Centre. This perfect family friendly location is home to plenty of rides and fairground-style activities. What's more is it's all indoors so no need to freeze in the minus degree Manchester temperatures you can instead stay inside but have all the fun of the fair. In easy reach from Manchester City Centre by car or public transport, Event City is easy to get to with lots of other places to visit nearby such as the Trafford Centre.
You can enjoy all the rides, games and attractions for up to four hours meaning there is plenty of time to see and do everything. Specially for children, you can visit Santa at the event for a meet and greet as well as seeing the kids favourite character, Basil Brush. Suitable for families with children under 12 years old, this is the perfect way to keep your little ones entertained over the holidays.
With so much to see and do, you will be amazed at how much fun is packed into one event. Rides include carousels, trains, bouncy castles, dodgems and sand pits. There are plenty of stalls to win prizes, as well as arcade-style games to enjoy. Santa's house will be open to visit and there are shows on throughout the day, including Rainbow Live, The Ice Princess show, Jedi Knight training and a Christmas circus. When you have enjoyed all the activities you can visit the food stalls to try some delicious offerings inspired from around the globe. Tickets can be purchased online or at the box office.
This winter event opens on 9th December 2017 and runs until 1st January 2018.
