  1. It looks like a magicial wonderland and what an awesome oppurtunity for the children to experience ice skating in the heart of parramatta

  2. I dont have young children of my own so winning these tickets will allow me to invite a friend with young ones to go and enjoy what is on offer without anyone feeling obligated to pay someone back. It will be a chance to feel young again as childrens experiences will influence ours.
