The nights are drawing in, Michael Bublé is defrosting and Santa’s elves are hard at work – it can only mean one thing, Christmas is almost here! With just five weeks to go until the most magical day of the year, we’ve prepared a definitive guide to all the enchanting experiences taking place in TraffordCity this Christmas, promising a fun-filled day out for the whole family.
From Winter Funland here at EventCity – a spectacular Christmas experience complete with Santa’s Grotto and an indoor funfair, to Merry Mermaids frolicking in the tank at SEA LIFE Manchester, there’s something for everyone.
At EventCity we embrace the spirit of Christmas every year, offering magic in every corner at the popular Winter Funland. From 6th December to 4th January, Winter Funland offers five fantastic attractions at one all-inclusive price, with Santa’s Grotto, Ice-Skating and an Indoor Funfair to a Christmas Circus and Panto. Make EventCity your first stop on your festive filled adventure – it’s the perfect way to start your festivities. What’s more, TraffordCity is home to the only Grotto in the country with real snow - Chill Factore is the UK’s very own answer to Lapland. Zoom on over for some snowy sub-zero fun, complete with Santa himself, sparkling trees and glistening lights.
If you’re missing the seaside this winter, swap snow for sea and take a visit to SEA LIFE Manchester, where you can discover all the weird and wonderful creatures of the ocean. Plus, on selected dates, Merry Mermaids will be frolicking in the tanks, rubbing fins with creatures including Blacktip Reef Sharks and resident Sea Turtles, Ernie and Cammy.
Just next door, you’ll find LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester. Budding little builders can create Lego decorations before taking a journey to the brick built Santa’s Grotto, where you can share your Christmas list and have photos taken with Saint Nick himself.
If the kids aren’t all partied out, Play Factore offers the perfect venue for a festive celebration. It promises to deliver the ultimate party this Christmas, be it a birthday, club, get-together or any special celebration - Play Factore has got you covered.
After something a little more high octane? Take a visit to iFly for an exhilarating Sykdiving experience. Float on a smooth cushion of air with no parachute and nothing attaching you to planet Earth – oh what fun it is to fly!
