Tattenhall Ice Cream Farm video offers a 'taste' of new-look attraction

Footage shows children having lots of fun

A heart-warming video has been produced to show children at play within the £4.5m redevelopment of The Ice Cream Farm at Tattenhall.

Thousands of visitors have already enjoyed the new-look attraction, which relaunched in July, with the video providing ‘a flavour’ of the experience.

The investment aims to prolong customer stay and increase spend by building one of the world’s biggest purpose-built ice cream parlours as well as the largest indoor sand and water play area in Europe.

And the new lay-out has also relocated the main 200-space car park onto the same side of the road as the attraction itself, avoiding people have to cross the highway – with the current car park used as an over-flow.

The site, which remains free to enter, includes a centre piece in the form of ‘snow-emitting’ life-size magical ice cream tree.

An Ice Cream Farm spokesperson said: “The new promotional video gives viewers a sneak preview into why it has been so popular, demonstrating the joy and excitement a trip to The Ice Cream Farm brings. From children enjoying delicious Cheshire Farm Ice Cream and getting up close and personal with the animals at Fudge Farm, to running through tunnels and jumping on trampolines in Daisy’s Garden, the video is jam-packed with family fun.

“At the heart of the video lies the unique and mesmerising ice cream tree, where children can’t hide the joy on their faces when the tree freezes and emits magical snow.”

The Ice Cream Farm scooped up planning approval late last year and work went on around the clock to create ‘a mouth-watering’ and unique tourist attraction. The redevelopment involved unused areas of the farm site, as well as making substantial changes to current buildings and land.

Certain areas of the site comprise a ‘pay as you play’ facility, such as Strawberry Falls Adventure Golf and Honeycomb Canyon sand and water play. A new Play Pass concept allows visitors to make savings on each visit to the site and has been rolled out throughout.
