Water park, a beach, fairground rides and a roller disco to enjoy this summer

The Summer Daze returned to the Trafford Centre on July 22 and will be there for the whole of the school holidays up to September 3.

Families are able to enjoy a huge 600 square metre beach, two thrilling splash parks, complete with multiple water jets and more than twenty fairground rides – including Sea Storm, Waveswinger and Don Sapo – as well as family friendly rides such as Waterballs, Racing Cars and Bumper Boats.

And after all the fun, there will be lots of food and treats to enjoy including ice cream, doughnuts, crepes, burgers, and sweets.

A covered stage area will play host to a packed schedule of summer fun, including free crafting, facepainting, costume characters and live entertainment.

These crafting workshops will run at the stage area from 12 – 4pm every Thursday, from 27 July – 31 August. Free hair braiding and summer tattoos are also available.

And not only can families enjoy the Summer Daze, but the Trafford Centre is now also home to the StarWash Roller Disco, a dazzling disco-themed roller rink.

Skaters will be transported to a world of vibrant lights, pulsating beats and kaleidoscope of colours, accompanied by a DJ playing feel-good tunes and disco classics.

The StarWash Roller Disco will open in The Orient, in front of the Main Stage, from 19 July – 27 August.

Simon Layton, Centre Director at Trafford Centre, said: “The StarWash Roller Disco promises an out of the ordinary experience for all the family. Whether you’re a seasoned skater or first-time roller rink explorer, grab your gang and get ready to groove all summer long!”

The experience is open daily Monday – Saturday 11am – 8pm and Sunday 12pm – 6pm, with sessions lasting 25 minutes.

Ticket prices are £12 peak (weekends) and £10 off peak (weekdays), which includes skate hire and access to the StarWash Lounge.

There will also be relaxed sessions every weekday at 11am, with fewer skaters, dimmed lighting and quieter music, for those who prefer a more chilled-out skating experience.

All skaters under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
