Manchester’s biggest indoor Christmas Theme Park, Winter Wonderland, is set to return.

Organisers Kingpin Events, have announced details for the new show which will future a new stage of festive shows including an ice princess show, certain to capture the hears of youngsters (and adults).  Throughout the season, ice princesses will be performing favourite children’s songs to the backdrop of wonderful wintry scenes complete with falling snowflakes. Meanwhile, the Little Mermaid will serenade visitors with her fishy tales of under the sea.

Returning for its third consecutive year from Sat 12 December 2015 – Sun 3 January 2016, Winter Wonderland Manchester will take over EventCity next to the Intu Trafford Centre in Manchester with group, family and individual tickets on sale now.

The mammoth 22,000 sq m exhibition space at EventCity will be transformed in to an unbelievable wonderland extravaganza, featuring more than 40 family rides and attractions all under one roof – including new rides for 2015, and all included in one ticket price.

As well as the rides and the bright lights, there is a brand new addition for 2015 with The Magical Van Buren Show, a fun & unique mix of magic, illusions, escapology, circus skills and a few surprises thrown in too from master magician Andrew Van Buren, who has performed in Blackpool Tower Circus, at The Brit Awards and at The Royal Albert Hall.

And back by popular demand is everyone’s favourite TV bear –The Sooty Show! TV puppets Sooty, Sweep and Soo will entertain you along with presenter Richard Cadell. Izzy, Wizzy, Let’s Get Busy at their live shows running throughout the day where you can expect magic, mischief and a little bit of mayhem.

Winter Wonderland has proved hugely successful since opening in 2013 growing from 35,000 in year one and rising to 50,000 visitors in 2014, organisers anticipate even larger numbers in 2015 as it becomes a firm favourite on Manchester’s event calendar.

In 2014 it contributed to Greater Manchester achieving its strongest year for hotel average occupancy since records began – with a record high of 77 percent, and was reported that the opening weekend of Winter Wonderland led to the highest peak of the year achieving 99 per cent.

And, of course, no Winter Wonderland would be complete without a visit from Santa and his real reindeers who will appear for free meet and greet sessions with children every day up to and including Christmas Eve (he’ll still manage to fit the deliveries in, we hope).
