Fun and adrenaline-filled days out for all the family at Chill Factore
Finding a day out which can satisfy all family members can be tricky at times. This summer the Manchester visitor attraction, Chill Factore, has launched a series of activities for under £20 per person to keep the family entertained.
From snowboarding and skiing for all abilities, to extreme snow fun activities and interactive adventure on real snow, you can keep the family entertained with a day out which does not break the bank.
The faster you slide, the higher you go at Altitude!
£12.50 pp for 1 hour 30-minute session (including 45-minutes activity on the snow, and 45-minutes to get kitted up as well as listening in on the team brief and debrief)
Launched in May 2018, Altitude takes the adventure playground on real snow to the next level. The new interactive snow challenge will offers guests the chance to team up with other exhilaration seekers and take on the challenge of accumulating as many slope metres as possible to ‘Reach the Peaks’.
The competition is on as teams go head-to-head in the ultimate adrenaline rush to get as many runs in as possible during the game. Each ride down the Downhill Donuts, Luge Slip’n’Slide and Sledge-O-Mania will earn your team those all-important metres and every metre will move your team further up the mountain peaks score board: the faster you slide, the higher you climb.
Thrill seekers who have accomplished Altitude can check where their score is placed on ‘Highest Climber’ leader boards, published on the Chill Factore website.
