Snow is coming to Brisbane again this year! The River Stage at the Botanical Gardens will be transformed into a winter wonderland these school holidays with a giant snow filled play park designed just for kids. Fresh snow will be made daily on site for the children to experience a taste of an icy winter playground.
The highlight of this unusual event will be the huge toboggan run down the river side snow slope and all kids are welcome to make their own snow man (30 minute sessions) and throw a few hundred snow balls at specific targets (not each other).
Another highlight will be the enormous snow dome, where kids can join in the ultimate snow ball fight. There will be a Silly Snow Men live stage show running throughout the day, where children can follow the fun adventures of Silly Billy and Silly Gilly, and plenty of refreshments will also be available on site. The family friendly event will be open from 9am - 4pm daily, from June 28th until July 15th, 2014.
General entry into the snow park itself is free, however, participating any of the five actual snow attractions (snow dome, stage show, snow man building, toboggan run and snow ball throwing arena) will involve a fee. There is a special $30 package which covers entry into all five snow attractions, otherwise it costs $10 to just ride the toboggans and $5 to just enter the Snow Dome, which makes the package better value for money, especially if the kids are keen.
The Silly Snow Men Event will definitely be a great way to keep the kids
active during the winter school holidays. The stage show will be bound
to keep them entertained, and the toboggan run will probably be
something many Brisbane kids have never even seen before.
Don't forget to wear gumboots and take your own waterproof gear (or a change of clothes), otherwise you can always hire gloves at the venue on the day.
So why not embrace the snow spirit this school holidays and organise a weekend trip at Snow 4 Kids and incorporate it into a stay with us here at The Manor Apartment Hotel Brisbane! Embrace being in the heart of the city this winter with The Botanical Gardens only about a 15 minute walk away and snuggle up in one of spacious apartments with plenty of room for the whole family!
