If a skiing holiday is your worst nightmare and a trip to the Chill Factore fills you with horror, this could be for you.

Snow Slide

- Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester
- open until 4th Jan 2009

A 50-metre long snow slide in Piccadilly Gardens is offering a more gentle downhill experience for almost everyone. (NB there is a height restriction of 1.1 metres)

No skill or experience required. Basically, you sat on an big inner tube and gravity does the rest.

The 'snow' slide is actually astroturf so you don't even get wet. Alpine fun without the slush and the broken ankle. Brings out the child in everyone. What next: a giant see-saw?

Opening times:

Sunday - Friday: 11am-9pm. Saturday: 10am-9pm. Closed Christmas Day.

Manchester's Snow Slide is open until 4th Jan 2009.
