St Enoch Square is the place to be for festive thrill rides with The Blizzard, an immersive attraction where riders fly through the sky, reaching speeds of 70mph, or, if heights are your thing, then dare to take on the ice climbing wall – a 20ft structure where you can test your grip against the frosty elements!

Jump aboard Santa’s runaway train, bounce on the candy cane bungee trampolines and join family and friends for a festive photoshoot in Santa’s snow globe!
