Get your snow ball throws ready: it's time for Snow Slingers
School holidays are coming and that means it is time to be young and free again and take both the little kids and big kids out for some FREE entertainment.
For me, nothing is more enjoyable then snow in the winter - but unless I am planning on packing up the car, all the winter gear, and heading for the mountains, I miss out on my snow fix. I am hoping for colder winters in the future.
But one shopping centre has gotten clever and has combined the joy of winter snowball fights with modern day interactive virtual reality.
This is going to be one better, for everyone involved, then playing a game on a laptop. It adds action-packed exercise to a new first time ever winter wonderland activity in Victoria.
The place to be is the Woodgrove Shopping Centre. They are bringing to you and your loved ones a never been seen in Victoria before virtual reality event.
It's called Lightweaves 'Snow Slingers'. It is a family fun exhilarating event - just think of the next level up on virtual paintball and then add snow. The 'Snow Slingers' event lets a whole group sling snowballs at each other in a completely mess-free environment.
It then integrates social media, so everyone can brag as they go about gaming for top scores. This is your chance to immerse yourself in a fantasy work and have a great family outing.
Woodgrove Centre Management says, "We are delighted to be the first Victorian Shopping Centre to offer visitors the ability to immerse themselves in this completely interactive three-dimensional environment. We love to play our part in providing the Melton community with entertaining activities for all ages to enjoy. We're looking forward to seeing visitors get involved in this truly captivating winter spectacle". This is a 3D event where all the players can truly be 'in the moment' and immerse themselves in a highly visual world which they explore by means of all their senses.
And to add snow to the top of the mountain, it is set among Australia's only life-like animatronic prehistoric ice-age animals including a Wooly Mammoth, Sabre Tooth Tiger, and Glyptodon. What is a "Glyptodon"? You have to see him to know him, so put your winter skates on to the Woodgrove Shopping Centre.
All the animals seem life-like and move and make sounds. Don't be too scared, they will not bite. But you and your kids are going to be journeying back in time to "snow sling" with the pre-historic.
