Win a Magical Family Day to Winter Wonderland Manchester

We had a magical time last year at the Winter Wonderland Manchester event last.  Here’s our review of the fantastic time we had with the little adventurers and we cannot wait to attend this year too.  We are super excited to have one of our lucky readers win a family pass (2 adults and 2 children) to the official launch night event on 11th December.

Returning for its third consecutive year from Saturday 12th December 2015 to Sunday 3rd January 2016, Winter Wonderland Manchester will take over EventCity next to the Intu Trafford Centre in Manchester.

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.  Manchester’s biggest indoor Christmas Theme Park – Winter Wonderland – is back this year and promises to be even bigger and better than ever!


This year there will be a brand new stage featuring fabulous festive shows including a dazzling ice princess show which is sure to capture the hearts of your little princes and princesses.  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.

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 The Sooty Show, Izzy, Wizzy, Let’s Get Busy  and the spectacular Christmas Circus seating over 700 people per show, delivering the finest collection of circus acts that will leave everyone marvelled and amazed with daily performances.

Winter Wonderland Rides - small

No Christmas would be complete without a visit from Santa Claus complete with real reindeers, who will be taking time out of his busy schedule for free meet and greets with all the children, every day up to and including Christmas Eve.

If that’s not enough, each session will begin with a big countdown to enter the Winter Wonderland adventure, filled with stilt walkers, Christmas fairies, giant candy canes and fun fairy-tale characters. There will also be a whole host of games stalls and a vast array of food and drinks stalls to purchase refreshments including hot snacks and sweet treats.


It is a fantastic day out and the children will have an amazing time.  Being indoors really helps to let the children have a great time without worrying about the weather, rain and the usual joys of winter weather.  I also love that all the attractions and rides are included within one ticket price!  If you would like to enter our competition it so easy below.

I am a traveller, mother and blogger. We love to go on adventures (big and small, near and far) and strive to show our children how amazing and beautiful the world is! I caught the travel bug many moons ago and despite having three little adventurers, I still suffer from "itchy" feet. We love the great outdoors and one another. Come and join the fun :)
