World first lands at Wembley Park – In the form of Slideatron – A fully immersive free Christmas attraction
A world first has landed at Wembley Park – in the form of Slideatron – a fully immersive Christmas attraction.
Opening today (30 November) and FREE to visitors, the 18 metre high structure – Slideatron – is a modern take on the traditional Christmas tree. Made from scaffolding and dressed in LED lights, with a 9 metre high and 20 metre long thrill slide ride, Slideatron offers visitors a multi-sensory experience like no other.
To add to the experience, every hour on the on-the-hour, Slideatron will go into ‘rave mode’, coming to life with different light shows set to a remixed Christmas classic soundtrack.
Visitors are encouraged to be the star on the Christmas tree, as they climb to the top to enjoy the open-air viewing platform which will provide fantastic views across Wembley Park to Wembley Stadium and beyond.
The 20m long slide will then propel visitors down the structure, presenting the opportunity for anyone to have a bit of a festive thrill.
At the foot of Slideatron a range of other light-based performances will take place at various times throughout the holiday period. This will include LED Hula Hoopers and Neon stilt walkers, as well as FREE neon face painting and balloon giveaways.
For the foodies, a special Slideatron Festive Street Food Market, in partnership with MarketFest, will be on offer – serving your favourite festive food. The Slideatron Bar, in partnership with Maggie’s (80s themed pop up bar) will also be open to visitors to sit back, relax and stay cosy under the heated canopy.
The adjacent London Designer Outlet (LDO) will be joining in with the festivities, with its own light displays, activations and Christmas soundtrack adding to the Slideatron experience. Visitors stopping by the LDO can fill up their Christmas stockings with designer goodies being sold at up to a 70% discount. The LDO will also be offering festive deals across their many restaurants, bars and cafes.
Speaking about the attraction, James Saunders, COO of Quintain which is developing Wembley Park, said:
“We’re proud to bring Slideatron to Wembley Park. It is our biggest and most unique FREE Christmas event to date and it is sure to provide some memorable moments for all, as well as a bit of a thrill too! Along with the Slideatron Festive Street Food Market and Bar, this is one Christmas treat you won’t want to miss.”
Slideatron will be located on Wembley Boulevard, opposite London Designer Outlet, from 30 November 2017 – 2 January 2018.
