IceSkating-140707-81

Some of the PANTS crew took a quick trip down to Winter Wonderland over the weekend. The idea of a giant tent of wintery goodness promised much, however it was a little lame. That being said, I still loved every second of it (lucky, because it cost $18).

Here’s the lowdown. The giant tent contains mostly an empty void. Other features: food (a la the show), rides (also show like), crazy lighting, a stage with no apparent purpose, an inflated snowman which is easily as tall as the tent itself, and computer games. Odd.

The cool bits?

It’s clearly targeted at children a little younger than me, and some of the execution is lacking, but its still pretty fantastic that Canberra has something like this to celebrate an otherwise cold and lifeless winter. It’s $18 and only about two hours committment, but it’s really great juvenile fun. I hope this becomes an annual feature, but for that to happen it no doubt needs some support. Get there.
