"Last years event was a phenomenal success and this year promises to be bigger"
Winter Funland event director, Andy Windmill
The UK’s biggest Christmas indoor Winter Wonderland, is set to return to Manchester on 6th December.
Following last year’s hugely successful event which saw over 85,000 people visit the Christmas festivities, Santa’s little helpers have worked with the event organisers to launch this year’s Winter Wonderland, promising it to be the best yet!
Winter Wonderland 2019 will see five amazing festive attractions including: A huge real ice rink, a fabulous Christmas circus, an incredible panto, a vast indoor funfair and of course, Santa Claus.
As well as all these attractions there will be plenty of food and drink available, catering for a wide range of requirements including vegan, vegetarian, gluten and lactose free options. Refreshments will also be available to get visitors into the festive spirit.
For parents of young children, there will be plenty of space to park any prams as well as a quiet breastfeeding area and baby changing facilities throughout the venue.
Winter Funland event director, Andy Windmill, said:
“Last years event was a phenomenal success and this year promises to be bigger, brighter and full of even more festive fun. We have pulled out all of the stops to ease queues for Santa, quicker service for food and of course – brought in even more exciting funfair rides”
The organisers have also created an autism-friendly sensory experience as part of the Winter Funland which will be available exclusively for autistic children and their family to enjoy on Monday 9th December.
The Winter Funland will be closed to the general public and transformed making it a welcoming and exciting space for young people affected by autism. Not only will there will be fewer crowds around, but the volume of the attractions will be lowered, the lighting and flickering lights will be reduced and a special space to chill out if any aspect gets too overwhelming will also be available.
Last year’s event gave over £100,000 worth of tickets to local charities & underprivileged families and promise to do the same again in 2019!
Winter Funland is taking place at EventCity, opposite intu Trafford Centre and there are over 3,000 free car parking spaces.
The doors will officially open to the public on 6th December and will remain open until 4th January 2020 with tickets available right now,
All-inclusive admission tickets are £23.50 per person and under 3’s go FREE. Fastpass tickets to visit Father Christmas at Santa’s Ghrotto are also available from the website here www.winterfunland.com
