It’s Christmastime, which means everyone has started ice skating again. But if you want to try the coolest winter activity this year, have a go a tobogganing. A quick trip to the Mendip Activity Centre takes only 40 minutes by car, where the toboggan slope has had a winter makeover for Twilight Tobogganing.
This one-hour outdoor festive activity – running until January 3, 2024 – features all the thrills and excitement you might expect. But turning tobogganing into a magical experience for all, the slope has been decked out with 10,000 fairy lights, coloured flood lights and lasers, as well as festive music and a snow machine.
Proving so popular last year, Twilight Tobogganing is available all day in 2023 too. Your group of up to eight people (which comes to £10 per person) will receive exclusive use of half of the Toboggan slope for half an hour – which comes with a free Santa hat and Santa-approved Toboggan License. So if you’re family is looking to feel the speed this Christmas, there’s no better experience near Bristol.
After all the excitement, you can relax by wandering through an ancient woodland illuminated by a Christmas light trail. This will lead to the woodland campfire, where worn-out tobogganers can toast marshmallows, make s’mores and light sparklers. There are also hot chocolates available for all tobogganers, while a bar be serving up the stronger stuff.
It’s not the only wintery activity either, with snowboarding and skiing sessions also available, plus so much more! Make sure to check out the Alpine-style café too, where can grab a pre-activity snack or sit down for a well-deserved family meal.
