Enjoy SNOW PLAY & Meet Father Christmas this festive season at Kingfisher

We are excited to announce that indoor snow experience SNOW PLAY is back in the centre for the little ones to enjoy and it's bigger than last year! Located on Walford Walk opposite Muffin Break, Snow Play will be open every day* from Saturday 23rd November - Sunday 5th January.  

Snow Play

Snow Play is a fun indoor snow experience bringing the enchantment of a white Christmas to life with synthetic snow and fluffy snowball pom poms for children to play with, all under falling snowflakes that magically disappears. This fantastic, wholly immersive artificial snow experience allows children to have fun in the snow without the need to wrap up warm with woolly hats and gloves. 

Tickets for Snow Play will cost £1.50 per child for a ten minute play in the snow. Snow Play is suitable for children aged 3-10*. The littler ones (aged between 18months - 3 years) can enjoy the snow area with a supervising adult or guardian at all times within a dedicated snow pit within Snow Play. 

Father Christmas

NEW for this year, little ones will also get to meet Father Christmas inside his lodge at Snow Play too.

To visit Santa in his lodge at Snow Play, tickets will be £4.50 per child which will include a present - additional merchandise will be available to purchase at the end of the visit. Guests can visit Santa over the opening weekend, after that, he will be at Snow Play every Thursday - Sunday for the following three weeks. Then, from Monday 16th December through to Christmas Eve, Santa will be at Snow Play daily.

Free Activities

We have also added to the festive experience with an area where children can write a letter to Santa, visit an icy penguin scene with a giant igloo and also take selfies behind the freeze wall inside Snow Play!
