Starting on Thursday, December 21, Betteshanger Country Park in Kent will be welcoming children of all ages for a truly spectacular festive treat.
For ten days, the park – which is located three miles outside the town of Deal – will play host to a giant, inflatable snowman. Standing at 50 feet tall, he will tower over the surrounding countryside and be visible for miles around. However, this snowman won’t just look festive. In fact, his belly will conceal a fantastic bouncy castle for the local kids to enjoy.
Apparently, the attraction can hold as many as 25 children at any one time, with no booking necessary – just bring your little ones along and let them burn off all of that excess Christmas energy.
“We are very excited to be welcoming a 50ft high inflatable snowman to Betteshanger this Christmas,” a park spokesperson told KentLive. “Young children will love bouncing and jumping around inside his tummy.”
According to local news, the snowman – provided by a premium hire company – will form the centrepiece of an array of festive activities set to take part in Betteshanger Country Park.
At the same time, a snow tubing run will be providing adrenaline-fuelled thrills with an 18-metre slope of frozen fun whatever the weather. Families are invited to grab a rubber tube and get sliding – with both adults and children alike encouraged to have a go. Meanwhile, budding explorers will have an opportunity to explore the underground overground, when the UK’s first mobile, interactive caving system comes to town.
