The magical Winter Wonderland comes to Manchester in just two months time at Event City.  The event, the UK’s largest indoor winter wonderland Christmas attraction opens on Saturday 9 December.

Winter Worderland transforms 22,000sq metres of EventCity in to a sparking seasonal spectacular featuring more than 50 family rides and attractions, all under one roof.

At the heart of the winter wonderland, festive fans will find Santa’s house, transported from the North Pole to the city and where visitors will be able to explore the hallway, lounge, dining room, kitchen and bedroom. There will also be real reindeer, as well as elves and fairies – who will be ready to have s-elfies taken with youngsters.

Other highlights of the 24-day Christmas extravaganza include Rainbow’s irrepressible duo Zippy and George, bringing magic, mayhem and comedy capers, and the brilliant Christmas Circus which will leave everyone stunned and amazed at its daily performances.

There are also special workshops on site, including one giving an opportunity to try out circus skills.

Children will also have the chance to create their own amazing models in the interactive building block zone.

Meanwhile, Pip Ahoy! returns to the Winter Wonderland after last year, again bringing a little bit of Salty Cove to Manchester. Pip will be around to meet and greet visitors who will be able to enjoy playing on the real sand or relaxing in a deckchair.

Winter Wonderland is now in its fifth consecutive year, and organisers Kingpin Events are promising 2017 will be bigger, better, bolder and more sparkly than ever.
