Ice slide set to bring 'Fast Frozen Fun' to Colchester Castle Park this Christmas!

Date of Issue: 26 October 2017

Christmas in Colchester is set to get even more exciting this year with a fantastic Ice Slide attraction taking centre stage in Castle Park over the festive season.

The 35-metre long by five-metre-high Ice Slide, which has been brought to the park by Colchester Events Company, will give people of all ages an adrenalin packed frozen ride.

The slide will be in Castle Park from 1 December 2017 until 3 January 2018, with tickets available to purchase online from Friday 3 November 2017. People will be able to buy tickets allowing them to use the slide an unlimited number of times for 25 minutes.

Councillor Annie Feltham, Portfolio Holder for Commercial Services said: "The ice slide promises to give adults and children alike some festive fuelled fun in the park.

"Christmas in Colchester is a truly unique experience offering a great choice of shopping and attractions for people of all ages to enjoy and really get into the festive spirit. The addition of the Ice Slide at Castle Park is yet another reason for people to come to Colchester this Christmas."

There is something for everyone to experience in Colchester during the Christmas season, from families and couples to those visiting in groups. Visitors looking for themed activities around the town can enjoy a fantastic range of family friendly entertainment options including Santa in his Grotto at Colchester Castle and the classic pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarves at the Mercury Theatre.

The festive line-up of events also sees the Christmas Lights Switch On in Colchester Town Centre on Sunday 26 November, and the return of the fully pedestrianised High Street Christmas Market on Sunday 3 December.
