They looked as if they’d travelled all the way from the Arctic, so they could be the first to go on the journey through the Enchanted Winter Forest.

But the Eskimos will have to wait until Thursday, December 1 for the amazing free attraction to open at the popular leisure destination.

The trip through the Enchanted Winter Forest features an animatronic display, a sleigh for photo opportunities, the chance to take a photograph of yourself as a Christmas Braelien and the giant igloo with children’s movies being shown inside.

Marketing manager for intu Braehead, Christine Macdonald said: “Snow way, I thought Eskimos would turn up at Soar for the free Enchanted Winter Forest attraction!

“But I’m not surprised they wanted to be first in the queue as it’s a wonderful experience for kids and they won’t have seen anything like this before at intu Braehead.
“They certainly won’t forget their journey through the free Enchanted Winter Forest in a hurry.”

The Enchanted Winter Forest is just one of a host of Christmas attractions that will make great family entertainment at Soar. There’s a free screening of Ice Age: Collison Course at the ODEON cinema, on Saturday, December 3.
