Fun and Games at Xscape Yorkshire
You know how it is when you fancy doing something exciting, or you just want to relax with friends or grab something tasty to eat? But you don’t know where to go or what to do?
Sometimes life gets a bit stale and you want something different. Well, Xscape Yorkshire can solve the dilemma.
Get Excited at Xscape
There’s plenty at Xscape Yorkshire to get the adrenaline flowing. You could don the guise of Lara Croft or James Bond and take the Laser Maze challenge. You need to duck and weave your way through without breaking any of the laser beams, swap the real diamond at the end for a fake one, then make your way back as fast as you can. And just to give it an edge, there are weekly prizes for the best scores.
If that doesn’t fire you up, how about an extreme ride with the XD Experience 6D ride. Special light and wind effects all add to the illusion of thrills and spills, but you’re safe in a theatre. You’d be surprised how realistic it is, and we challenge you not to feel just a bit breathless by the end.
Other great adventure activities include the SnoZone, Yorkshire’s own indoor St Moritz, but a lot cheaper and closer to home. The 170 metre main slope will give you a ski challenge, but there are beginner slopes and lessons. Not up for skiing? How about sledging or ice sliding.
All good fun and fit for all the family.
Xscape and Relax
You can take in a movie at the multiscreen Cineworld cinema, or gather a few friends together for a game of ten pin bowling or 4D, glow in the dark, special effects crazy golf.
There’s fun for the younger kids too at Explore Soft Play centre, where there’s a dedicated toddler area so the littlest family members can enjoy a bit of rough and tumble in a safe and clean environment. Great idea if you’re looking for a party venue too – just invite the guests and let them loose. Staff take care of everything for you, right down to party packs.
Eat Drink and be Merry
Sometimes all you really want to do is sit down for a drink and natter with friends, and Xscape Yorkshire has cafes or bars for just about every occasion. Turn back the clock in the retro-styled Glass Room for a glass of wine or great fresh coffee, or watch the ski activity from the comfort of the SNO!bar. There’s plenty of night activity, with party and quiz nights or karaoke in the 50/50 bar. There are plenty of other places to grab a bite too, whether you want to sit down to eat or wander round as you nibble.
Want to do something that’s both exciting and good for charity?
How about a zip slide in support of Mencap? Do you dare take the challenge to zip from the Xscape roof to the carpark, getting up to 30mph? If so, join in the fun in June and see if you can’t raise some money for charity in this daring escapade. There are special offers and goodies if you sign up before 15th May.
Whatever the weather’s doing, there’s plenty to entertain and stimulate at Xscape Yorkshire. With this great venue on the doorstep, there’s no need for life to get stale ever again.
