If a skiing holiday is your worst nightmare and a trip to the Chill Factore fills you with horror, this could be for you.
- Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester
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?
Sunday - Friday: 11am-9pm. Saturday: 10am-9pm. Closed Christmas Day.
Manchester's Snow Slide is open until 4th Jan 2009.
