Christmas is almost upon us and this week we headed over to Manchester’s Winter Wonderland VIP evening to help get us in the mood for Father Christmas, merriment and also to celebrate Willow turning 4! We have been to the event for the last few years and we always have a great time! It’s the perfect balance of rides, entertainment and fun without being too busy, overcrowded or cold!! The event is held at Event City, Manchester which is next to the Trafford Centre so it’s easily accessible too. Plenty of parking, hardly any queuing for rides and smiles ahoy; what’s not to like?!
Manchester Winter Wonderland is basically a super-large (and I mean large!) indoor, Christmas theme park. It’s filled with child-friendly rides and lots of entertainment including pantomimes, stalls, games, shows, live entertainers and even Santa! There is so much to see and do, there is something for all ages! There are even adult rides and lots of eateries for those who are not into white knuckle experiences!
I held a giveaway for tickets last month and I am pleased to report that I met the winner at the event and I can confirm that she loved the event as much as we did! If you’re local to Manchester or can make the trip, I really do recommend you give Winter Wonderland a whirl, I would be amazed if you were disappointed!
I aren’t going to go on and on about the event, I have already done that but what I will do is share some photos of our night and let you determine yourself if the kids look happy!
As you can see, two very happy and excited children. We even located some snow! We really did have an awesome time and even spotted a few celebs! Special thanks to Winter Wonderland for inviting us to enjoy the fun! We ended our night with a ride on the Waltzers, all three of us; what an experience! The kids loved it and I have not laughed as much in years. Definitely special memories made!
So that’s it, we were of course absolutely exhausted after three hours of rides and fun but we will definitely be heading back next year! Now quick, you have until 2nd January 2017 to get yourself there! Check out the Winter Wonderland website for booking or further information!
