Crank those cosy winter vibes with this brand-new event.
Taking inspiration from their ever-popular Christmas Festival of Lights, Adventure Park are once again giving families, couples and friends a chance to explore a dazzling glowing wonderland with their brand-new event ‘Winter Glow’.
Running from June 25 to July 10, the venue will transform into a frosty winter wonderland complete with daily snow showers, dazzling magical and immersive light installations, spectacular fire-twirling and ice-sculpting displays from local artists, and plenty of comfort food and alpine-appropriate drinks.
Arriving just in time for the July school holidays (and for Christmas in July), there will be a massive snow play zone where attendees can make snow angels, build snowmen and for some, touch snow for the first time.
Putting their Christmas lights to good use, there will also be a whopping two million shimmering lights illuminating Geelong’s night sky, plus hundreds of glittering installations around the park and even UV face painting for anyone who wants to get their glow on.
While the water rides won’t be operating (it’s bloody cold remember), the park will be running a bunch of dry rides including Ferris Wheel, Wave Swinger, Crazy Coaster, Red Baron, Carousel and Little Buggy rides, which will all be covered by your entry price.
As for the food, think roasted marshmallows, hot chocolate, spiced cider and mulled wine, all promising to keep you warm while the kids decorate cookies to take home as a souvenir treat.
Entry to the festival will set you back just $25 to $30, with kids under 90cm free.
BYO warm clothes, gloves and gumboots for those keen to jump in the snow.
Adventure Park’s Winter Glow runs from June 25 to July 10. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.
