Who doesn't like a good party? Who doesn't like the snow? (when you don't have to drive in it?) Who doesn't like to have fun with friends? If you said yes to any of the previous questions, this post isn't for you!
J loves the snow, and I mean LOVES the snow. We were tempted to host her 6th birthday party at Chill Factore but didn't really know what we would get for our cash so when we got offered to try it out and review it we jumped at the chance. To bring the party atmosphere she was able to bring some friends along to make it a real party.
We hired the clothing which is a party add on (£6 per person) which includes warm waterproof ski trousers and a ski coat. M had his own ski wear so opted to wear his. We wrapped everyone up warm and popped the ski boots and helmets on (everyone receives these to hire for the party). And we were ready for the fun.
After a quick brief which explained where all the activities were, we were off...
S headed for Mini Moose land. This area is host for the Mini Moose Land Party which is ideal for the under 4's. We have visited this area before, which you can read about here. This time S was much more adventurous. She was like a different child.
She whizzed down the smaller snow covered hills in the donuts, and sledges. Just like the older girls on the larger hill. S was able to go down the larger hill but was too scared.
She loved running around from the tunnels to the houses to the slopes...
On the other side to Mini Moose Land is the snow park. The older girls (6 years) were in their element. Wrapped up warm there was no complaints of getting cold, wet knees or boredom. Running from one activity to the next. The adults didn't really need to do anything to supervise so we joined in on the fun too.... (staff helped them into rings and pulled them off)
H's Mum and Dad racing too...
Friends raced each other down the Luge with a timer stating each time.
The excitement was clear to see.
It was an amazing time on the snow... we all had fun. From the 4 year old to us parents too.
When the snow time had finished it still wasn't over...
We got out of the snow clothes and was led upstairs to the party room. Here the table was all set up with party hats and drinks. The girls were so excited. They had certainly worked up an appetite and thirst on the slopes.
J, H and I tested out the pizza and S and the adults tested the cheeseburger. The portions were big, and the pizza was amazing. With stringy cheese it provided more giggles. The adults were impressed with the quality of the burger and the portion size was plenty for an adult too.
The puddings went down just as well. The children had lots of ice cream, I lost my sticky toffee pudding to the girls too as it was delicious. I knew I shouldn't have let them 'try' it.
After the food the girls were able to watch others on the slopes and watch some ski lessons.
...and dance about in the space alongside the table to the music playing in the background...
I loved this party as it meant I could get in on the action too, have fun and make memories alongside the children and could capture it all on camera instead of rushing around like a mad woman missing it all.
The girls didn't want to leave. This is a good sign that the party was AMAZING. This is what we want as a parent isn't it? A party full of smiles and giggles.
