Test your skiing and snowboarding skills at Snozone at Xscape. Whether you're just starting out or take to the snow like a pro! There's plenty to do at Fairburn Ings from pond dipping, feeding the ducks, play area, bird watching...the list is endless. And dogs are welcome too! The adventure theme park experience where children and adults alike can ride, drive and operate real diggers, dumpers and other full- sized construction machinery. If you fancy a day strolling around the shops and stopping for a spot of lunch, here's where to go! A day at the races is a favourite with many. It's described as a brilliant day out. Lovely for the family picnics and just something different to do. A must visit if youve never been. Tractor rides, corn maze, pick your own, the barn, face painting, farm animals, local produce, what's not to like? Something for all the family. Described as escape games with a twist at Xscape.Catering for a broad spectrum of ages, including wheelchair access. Referred to by customers as 'Crystal Maze in a Film Set'. WF11 0AZ. "Lovely place to visit and have a cuppa & a bite to eat. Very happy donkeys." Also, this Saturday (March 30)) it's the Spring Fayre and on Sunday, Mums go free for Mother's Day. Here's one for the sweet toothed among us. Pick up some cheap Haribo sweets at 26 Front Street, Pontefract WF8 1NJ. 5 Salter Row, Pontefract WF8 1BA.
A free attraction packed with local history and lots to do for the kids. And not for the faint hearted - 30 East Drive, Pontefract - is this the scariest house in the UK? Reviewer said: "Been doing lots of ghost paranormal nights this was the one that I most wanted to do."
