Canal Walk Shopping Centre will once again be a “cool” place to be this festive holiday season. Canal Walk’s ‘Ice Adventure’ in association with Baskin Robbins, will entertain visitors – young and old, big and small – from December 2 to January 8, 2017, from 10am in the morning until 10pm every day (with the exception of December 25).
Following Santa’s example from previous years, in recognising just where “they need to chill-out over the hot Cape summer,” a pack of ice age animals have elected to set-up home in the Centre Court at Canal Walk. Eager to meet busy bodies and curious minds are a collection of woolly mammoths, sabre-toothed tigers, a terra bird; even a magical Irish Elk. Two of the visitors – the Glyptodon and the Uintatherium – have even agreed they will take youngsters for a ride around the Ice Adventure arena!
For the more active, there will once again be plenty of fun with a variety of icy slides. A 4-metre high ‘Iceberg’, a double-lane Glacier and even an icicle (for the not so brave) will complement the snow zone, where little ones can demonstrate their creative flair with a bucket and spade building snowmen (and women), igloos, or shelters for the pre-historic visitors to their hearts’ content.
To get the inside scoop on what it might have been like way back when and to make these “cool” animals feel a little more comfortable, Canal Walk has created a ‘Sub-Zero Ice Chamber’ that contains a frozen waterfall, which will “blow back the hair” with a sound-filled wind experience.
Because it’s the season of giving, The Hyprop Foundation is again donating profits generated from the gift-wrapping service on offer throughout the festive season period, which it will donate to Reach for a Dream.
Tickets, ranging from R30 to R80, can be purchased online at www.computicket.com; or at the Computicket booth at the centre.
