GET YOUR SKATES ON….

READY TO VISIT YORK'S WINTER WONDERLAND

GET YOUR SKATES ON….

York’s  Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland – will be making a welcome return to McArthurGlen Designer Outlet York this winter.  The popular outdoor ice rink, vintage funfair and Santa’s Grotto will be open from Friday 19th November 2021 to Sunday 9th January 2022 with tickets on sale now, following a year’s absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland has been a regular Christmas attraction at York Designer Outlet since 2010 but was cancelled last year due to government restrictions.  This year will mark its 16th season in York; the event made its debut as The Ice Factor on the Eye of York in 2005.

The Ice Factor – the North of England’s largest outdoor ice rink at 975 sq. m – will once again have a 30ft high sparkling Christmas tree as its centrepiece. Surrounded by illuminated trees, log cabins, the rink side cafe and a viewing platform, this magical setting makes for the perfect festive experience for all ages.

Overlooking the ice rink is The Chalet, a cosy alpine-themed, après-skate café and an ideal spot to warm up after a session on the ice or to watch the skaters glide past.  Mulled wine, the best hot chocolate in town, hot dogs, toasties and sweet treats will be available to purchase, and private parties can also be arranged.

The vintage funfair features rides from the golden era of fairgrounds.  Speed and thrills await on the 1936 Speedway, the 1937 Brooklands Dodgems or the stunning 1930s Chair-o-Plane.  Muffin the Mule and Hush Hush the train will delight children, as will the games stalls offering prizes galore.

Christmas would not be the same without a visit to Santa and his elves. Visitors can follow the path through the snowy enchanted woodland to find his cosy log cabin and collect a special gift.
