In need of some ideas of how to keep the family entertained over the Easter holidays? Look no further as McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Swindon has a lineup of exciting activities for all ages including, a state-of-the-art Scalextric, an Easter trail and a prize draw offering visitors the chance to win a £150 shopping spree at the centre. The designer outlet will also be home to an extra-large Lindt Bunny throughout the Easter break.

From 8th – 23rd April, families with a need for speed can brush up on their car racing skills with Hornby Hobbies’ in-centre Scalextric. With built-in Bluetooth on the latest ARC ONE/ARC AIR kit, players can hook up to the powered track with their own mobile or tablet device and using the downloadable ARC app manage races, set up tournaments and Grand Prix, or simply perfect their driving skills with a few practice laps. The event is free of charge with no booking necessary. Staff will be on hand to demonstrate the app via a large TV screen and answer any questions.

McArthurGlen Swindon’s environmentally friendly Hooter Express train will also be steaming its way through the centre every 20 minutes during the Easter break, taking passengers on a voyage of discovery through the Longshop Mall, past the Wall Holla and Interactive Sona play areas and around the rest of the centre. The designer outlet’s outdoor multi-purpose play haven features a crawl-through maze, a climbing wall for older kids to scale, a lounge area for teenagers and the ‘Wall Holla’, a towering structure with fun, unusual facets designed to inspire children of all ages to explore the inventive maze.

From 8th – 23rd April, children will receive an Easter themed activity book and be invited to take part in an Easter trail. To be in with a chance of winning a Lindt chocolate treat at the end of the trail, all they need to do is find the images in the activity book, which will be hidden in store windows around the centre. The activity book will feature a colouring competition and word searches to keep little ones entertained too. Parents will also have the chance to enter a prize draw to win a £150 gift voucher to spend in store. They simply need to share a photo of their Easter trail adventure on Facebook or Instagram, using the hashtag #HopandShopSwindon. The outlet’s very own four metre Lindt Bunny will act as the perfect selfie spot outside the Lindt store.
