We were invited to experience the Ice Slides at Cape Gate Shopping Centre this past Saturday, and let me tell you – the trip to the Northern Suburbs was well worth it. The kids had an absolute blast, so much so that they are begging to go back.
A tip, get there early – it gets busy! There are three different toboggan-style ice slides – a 28m long curved slide, a 24m long dipper as well as a 1.5m kiddie’s slide, which are all made from real ice. It looked like so much fun – I was really tempted to go down one myself… totally chickened out.
Mikayla loved the slides, while Knox’s favourite part was playing with real ice at the Ice Play station. I just really wish it was bigger. Everyone wanted to build a snowman (of course) – a little bit more ice and a bigger space would have been rad. That being said, it is still an awesome sensory experience for the kids
My favourite was the seven different, life-sized interactive animals that they had! All the animals were set to simulate their natural environment and habitat of their time. You can learn all about the Woolly Mammoth, Saber-toothed Tiger, Irish elk, Terror Bird and Glyptodon… and they look pretty real.
Another thing that I really liked and appreciated, was that you could buy delicious pastries, muffins, doughnuts, coffee and hot chocolate – and everything was only R10 each! Usually, at these type of events, they overcharge you so badly on food, snacks and merchandise – I am glad that Cape Gate made this affordable for all parents!
Tickets cost just R80 for a full rider, R50 for a mini rider and just R30 for a non-rider. These tickets are all valid for a 45-minute sliding session and include the ice age animal expo, which is available at the event entrance. For a walkthrough of the experience, have a look at our IG story highlights under “Adventures”
You can find the ice slides in the centre court at Capegate Shopping Centre.
