Cracking Time Ahead For Easter Half-Term

Wednesday, 06 April 2011

As the Easter half term approaches, SNO!zone Milton Keynes is preparing for a special surprise for its visitors, when the centre holds its first ever Easter party with Percy.

The indoor real snow centre will be inviting kids to party with Percy the Penguin on their real snow slope from 4.30pm on Thursday 21st April.

Children aged three to nine can join Percy the Penguin on the slopes from 4.30pm or 7pm, with a 30 minute sledging session on real snow, followed by party food, music and entertainment, plus a fun Easter egg hunt.

Priced at just £11.95 for children and £6 for adults*, everyone taking part will even get to take home their own egg!

Featuring alongside this is a host of fun activities on and off the slope for children and adults to take part in throughout the Easter break, from Saturday 9th - Tuesday 26th April.

On dry land- kids of all ages can try their hands at getting creative with lots of arts and crafts activities in the SNO!lounge or watch some classic family favourite films in the Kids Corner available each day from 9am- 6pm.

SNO!zone will also be running its SNO!camps every day from Monday to Friday (4th - 22nd April) for kids aged seven to 15 years-old.

Priced from £43, including refreshments, SNO!camps provide a great way to keep children active this Easter break. With experienced, qualified instructors on hand to teach riders of all skill levels, from beginners to advanced, kids can have fun safely. 

Sarah Porteus, SNO!zone marketing manager, said: "It can be difficult for families to keep kids entertained throughout the Easter half-term, so we've come up with plenty of exciting things to do on and off the slope at the centre.

"This year we're giving people the chance to have a go at sledging with Percy the Penguin and to take part in our egg-hunt in the snow which is the perfect excuse to get the family off the sofa and have some fun together this half-term!"

As well as these fun activities, families can also get active on the slopes at SNO!zone by taking part in sledging or ice sliding or skiing and snowboarding on the 170m long slope.
