|Inside the huge Chill Factore building - so THIS is what it looks like...|
|Suited and Booted and Ready to go...|
.......once they'd finished playing on the benches
|Chill Factore Snow Park and Carousel|
|Sledging, Luge and Tubing|
|The new Carousel at Chill Factore - which for some children |
had a similar calming effect to a smooth car journey...
Children aged 4 and over can try Sledging, which was better with Dad than with me as I manged a spectacular crash, taking out a part of a netting barrier and a photographers tripod. Thankfully my son thought it was 'awesun', so I retained a little parental dignity.
|I broke this man's tripod! (Sorry)|
|Ready to go....|
|And they're off....|
|The small slope in the Snow Play area offered plenty of sledging fun too.|

After the play we were treated to a sample of the menu, with various pizzas and chips, which got the thumbs up from all my children, including 2 of the girls who joined us after shopping. The food was really well cooked and very tasty, the pizzas were really nice and the chips crisp.
I will definitely go again and I think it makes a great party venue. I've been meaning to go for so long and it was all so much quicker and easier than I expected. The suits are not like the last time I wore one on a school trip as a teenager, they're light and really comfortable. The snow is not really deep and tiring, if anything we needed a bit more loose snow for snowballs! It's a real fun thing to do and the pricing is comparable with most other days out activities and children's parties.
|Not quite enough snow for snowballing...but he tried!|
