The Ice Factor and Yorkshire's Winter Wonderland
TheIce Factor is the north of England's biggest outdoor 100% real ice rink and celebrated its 10th birthday last year! Surrounded by an illuminated forest of giant Christmas tree it's at the centre of Yorkshire's Winter Wonderland, alongside picturesque log cabins and a viewing platform that's an ideal spot for a family photo. A more scenic and atmospheric skate environment ye shall not find!
After your ice skating session, enjoy a nice hot rinkside refreshment within a heated alpine-themed chalet at PapaKitchen, again delightfully atmospheric with cosy furs, rustic style wooden furniture and the lingering scent of Gluhwein and gingerbread! Mmm… can we come with you?!
The Winter Wonder Funfair is loaded with fun and excitement for all: from a thrill ride on the original 1930s speedway or Dodgems to the traditional Carousel. Try your luck on the game stalls and win prizes or simply grab some candy floss and settle back to soak up the atmosphere, either way it's extra fun ideal for keeping the kids happy.
Plus of course for the little ones, Santa's waiting in his grotto with a special present just for you! Minimal queuing system seems, from reviews, to make this one of the better grottos!
And with over 120 stores in the York Designer Outlet, as well as some special stalls outside, it's the ideal spot for Christmas shopping, so bring the kids, bring nanny and granddad - heck, bring everybody, because they'll all find something to love!
