Tamworth, UK


So last weekend me and Sean were bored. Like really, really bored. The weather was shit and as always money was a little bit on the tight side but we wanted to get out of the house and do something fun. Sean jokingly suggested that we go skiing. Assuming that he meant we should jet off to the French Alps or somewhere else just as luxurious I came up with the next best thing, Tamworth Snowdome. 

I'd visited the Snowdome plenty of times before but I hadn't been for years. After checking the activity prices and times we were soon booked in for a 2 hour Ice Skating session and a half hour Tobogganing session the following evening. Both activities were priced at £8.75 per person which didn't break the bank too much.

We arrived the next day in our cosiest clothes ready for a bit of fun in the cold. After popping our boots on were were soon ready to skate and even though it was Sean's first time on the ice and I was a bit wobbly myself, it didn't take too long for us to get the hang of it. Before we knew it we were whizzing around the track and despite a couple of slips I think we did pretty well. I wasn't sure if two hours would be enough time to get on our feet and actually enjoy the experience but I don't think you'd really want anymore than that.

We had around an hours break before our highly anticipated tobogganing session so we grabbed our packed lunch and a little hot chocolate each from the on site Starbucks.

After our short but well deserved rest we headed down to the slope for the main event of the day. The slope is much bigger than it looks at first as it curves round slightly at the top. Although I'm sure this was a space saving idea it makes for a much more fun run. In our half an hour session me and Sean probably got around 6 or 7 runs each and only crashed into each other once, which I didn't think was too bad. Although I can't say we're expects I think we got the hang of this pretty quickly too and I know we will be back again soon to master it!

I absolutely loved our time at The Snowdome and if it wasn't so far away I honestly think we'd go every weekend as it really is the perfect place to spend a rainy day. We want to try out snowboarding lessons at some point so maybe I'll review them next time!

Have you been to the Snowdome?
