A ‘Magical Winter Wonderland’ Through Which You Can Ice Skate Is Coming To The Trafford Centre

Neither have we, but now that we know we can we’re pretty excited about it! It’s one of those out of the box experiences that take you to another world, and it’s coming to TraffordCity this festive season to bring us all some Christmas cheer. It’s set to me ‘a sensory journey through an enchanted Christmas world’, and that seems like just the kind of escapism Manchester folk need this winter!

We’re not sure when the first snow of the year will come, but we know for sure that you’ll see some should you venture to the Unreal Xmas experience, as flurries of it will fall on the enchanted world they’re creating. Plus, and this is a big plus for us, there’ll be a skate up bar, but don’t be getting too tipsy unless you want to fall flat on your a***. 

It’s cost a whopping £150,000 to create this beauty of a skating rink, and you can see it in the details. Lighting, atmosphere and props are uniquely tailored to meet the festive expectations of visiting Mancs, and it’s running for a whole month, so there’s plenty of time to catch it.  You can visit between December 3 and January 3. Opening times will be 10 am – 10 pm Monday to Friday, then 12 noon – 6 pm on Sundays, and we can’t wait! You can book a slot via the website and each slot entitles you to 45 minutes of skating.
