More than 50 tonnes of real snow, a giant robot, a record attempt and two days of baby raves have capped off Trinity Walk’s biggest ever summer.
Celebrating its fifth year, the centre organised nine major free events throughout the school holidays.
Highlights included Titan the robot, which drew more than 1,000 people, and two days of real snow sledging thanks to a partnership with Snozone at Xscape Yorkshire.
The centre also attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people dressed as a princess. While they fell short, it’s believed Trinity Walk set a new Yorkshire record.
Giant soft play bus, The Doubledeckerden, also proved popular as did a Jedi Fight Academy, superhero day, pirate day and Harry Potter-themed wand making with cosplay character appearances. All drew large crowds of families from beyond Wakefield including South and West Yorkshire, growing the centre’s catchment area further.
The summer was capped off with a two day baby rave by Boomchikkaboom which attracted more than 600 parents and kids.
Cormac Hamilton, Trinity Walk’s centre manager, said: “It’s not often your summer comprises of real snow, nearly 200 princesses, an 8 foot robot, a Jedi Fight Academy and two baby raves.
“Our aim was to give families something exciting, fun and free to experience and having such a varied, surprising and interactive range events helped us achieve just that. The main thing is for people to come, have a good time and enjoy themselves.”
This Christmas will see more family fun with a new grotto where kids can meet Santa for free and a major Christmas lights switch-on set for Thursday November 17.
