You could be excused for thinking that the seasonal excitement will be all wrapped up by Christmas, but in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter the fun will start all over again on Boxing Day.
That’s when the carnival comes to town in the shape of the inaugural Titanic Winterland which will take over the new Titanic Exhibition Centre, creating the city’s largest and coolest indoor funfair.
From Saturday 26th December right through to Sunday 10th January the venue will be transformed into a Winterland theme park, packed with more than twenty major thrill rides, fairground attractions, and a host of games of skill and chance providing all the fun of the fair for adrenaline-junkies and little kiddies alike.
Family favourites include everything from a wonderfully nostalgic, hand-painted carousel and Helter Skelter to a ‘Frozen’-themed children’s fun house, tea-cup ride and an awe-inspiring traditional Ferris wheel, with a super-friendly inflatable zoo activity play centre for tiny tots.
Waltzers, dodgems, bumper boats and chair-o-planes will create a traditional and much-loved funfair atmosphere, but Titanic Winterland will also deliver a decidedly high tech experience with some of the newest and most exciting rides currently touring Europe.
For those who like their fairground entertainment full-on, the showpiece of the packed carnival will undoubtedly be the challenge of the ‘Vertigo G Force’. Standing at more than 130 feet in height, towering over the venue, it’s an outdoor thrill ride like no other and certainly not for the feint hearted!
