The whole family will enjoy our fun filled icy-activities including building a snow man (or a snow family) in our MEGA snow pit, glide down our giant ice toboggan and skate on a real ice rink. Plus, amazing amusement rides*, roving entertainment, hearty food and warm beverages.

All icy activities are included in the Snow Time entry ticket.

Our Snow Play Zone has undergone a major transformation that must be seen to be believed. Enjoy some icy fun just a short drive from Newcastle.

Grab a tube and glide down the 45-metre slide, it’s sure to get your adrenaline pumping, and once won’t be enough!

Children under 120cm can enjoy a smaller skating rink to build their confidence, and for our more experienced guests we have a larger rink for them to enjoy gliding around. Collect your session ticket, grab your skates and helmet and get skating!
