You can now leave behind reality for the afternoon and enter into a kaleidoscopic world of tempting treats. The Chocolate Factory is now open for business, and they’re in the business of sending you and your family on a vibrant journey through rooms filled with giant velvet-coated marshmallows, cupcake trampolines and trees sprouting lollipops. Have your phone or camera at the ready, because this dreamy experience provides plenty of photo opportunities. The kids especially won’t be able to resist a selfie with the chocolate sausage dog or capturing some slo-mo shots of them jumping in the ball pit.
Found in Peel Avenue on the ground floor of the Trafford Centre, The Chocolate Factory promises a fun-filled escape from the sea of shoppers. You can duck inside and instantly be whisked away into a place that seems plucked from the pages of a modern-day fairytale. You won’t be able to resist whipping out your phone to capture an irresistibly sweet shot of your kids – their eyes lit up at the wondrous array of mouthwatering sweets – along the way either.
Each themed room is irresistibly Instagrammable thanks to a rainbow of pastel shades and brilliant creative designs that seem to have been especially designed to juice up your feed. Take a wander through a street of larger than life gingerbread houses, duck under a row of unicorns with ice cream cone horns, stock up your trolley with some sweet cereal boxes and unleash your inner child in the fluorescent ball pit. You’ll almost think you have taken a sip of some kind of shrinking concoction as you gaze around at all the oversized goodies that have transformed the venue.
Once you’ve got a visual taste of this candyland you’ll all be more than in the mood for a more edible sugar fix. That’s all covered, as the Chocolate Factory itself awaits at the end of the experience, its shelves lined with all the sweets and chocolate you may have laid eyes on in some of the rooms. Plus, there’ll be some pretty sweet surprises along the way too.
Whether you’re looking for a unique experience with the family, are on the hunt for an otherworldly backdrop to a selfie and some sweet slo-mo footage or even just fancy mixing up your shopping trip to Trafford Centre with something different, make sure you grab tickets to The Chocolate Factory now.
