The iconic Pier Head will be turned into a magical winter wonderland this November, when the enchanting Christmas Ice Festival returns for 2018!
Featuring Liverpool’s biggest ever ice slide and a huge covered outdoor rink, the festival allows skaters the chance to glide in style while admiring the stunning backdrop of the world famous Three Graces.
The return will be the third year for the popular festival and offers family friendly fun ranging from funfair rides for both children and adults, pop-up food and drinks stalls to indulge in some mulled wine and hot chocolate as well as some tasty hot roast rolls and scrumptious crepes.
The Ice rink is suitable for all ages and abilities, whether you’re a beginner and require the aid of the cute penguin skate aids to help you along the way, or an expert join in and glide on your blades! The rink also has a canopy to keep everyone dry whatever the weather may bring.
Seek the thrills of the high speed 30 metre ice run, which is back with three lanes and is set to be the city’s most exhilarating festive ride as racers hurtle down from six-metres above the festival site.
The Ice Jet ride also makes a return following its Liverpool debut in 2017. The only one of its kind in the UK, it features a fantastic sound and light show, giving festival-goers the ride of their life.
Traveling at white-knuckle speeds of up to 80mph, riders in the two-seater sled cars will experience the incredibly fast twisting thrills of a bobsleigh racing on an ice track, all complete with realistic sounds, snow effects and £20,000 worth of state of the art lighting.
The Christmas Ice Festival will be launching on Saturday 10th November and will run throughout the Christmas and New Year period until the 6th January 2019. So, don’t miss out on some festive activities and lots of icy fun!
