Liverpool Indoor Funfair has opened at Exhibition Centre Liverpool
New attraction Liverpool Indoor Funfair has opened its doors for eight days of Easter excitement.
The event, which is visiting Liverpool for the first time, was unveiled by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Christine Banks, and her granddaughter 6-year-old Emilia Fitzpatrick.
Set within 60,000 sq ft of Exhibition Centre Liverpool, on the banks of the Mersey, Indoor Funfair is the biggest event of its kind to come to the city, packed with fairground favourites for all ages, including a 200ft long inflatable obstacle course named ‘Energiser’, two mini-coasters, a huge inflatable slide and a 3D Experience Zone.
With three sessions a day to choose from, visitors can enjoy unlimited access to all rides during their chosen three-hour slot.
Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Christine Banks, said:
“It’s great to see families coming together to enjoy all the fun of the fair, right in the heart of Liverpool.
“Everywhere you look there is something fun to experience and lots of people with big smiles on their faces.”
John Lowery of Events & Attractions, the organisers of Indoor Funfair, said:
“It promises to be an unforgettable Easter in Liverpool.
“We’ve made sure everything is very family-friendly, with rides for all ages, an inflatable obstacle course to race on, prize games galore and great refreshments too.
“This is a classic fairground experience that will keep families entertained, no matter the weather outside.
“Tickets are selling quickly, but there’s still time to grab some and give the kids a real treat this Easter.”
Bob Prattey, Chief Executive of The ACC Liverpool Group, which includes Exhibition Centre Liverpool, added:
“This is a first for the city and we’re thrilled to welcome Indoor Funfair to our spectacular waterfront venue.
“There’s been a real buzz around the city and we’re confident it will be a huge success.”
