Total Wipeout is one of those gameshows that is hilarious to watch other fail at, but would you actually be any better at negotiating giant inflatable obstacles yourself?

Well, now is your time to find out as Wacky World is bringing its version of the popular BBC gameshow with the giant red balls to Blackpool Sports Centre on December 3 and 4.

From toddler-friendly to adult-only sessions, the festive-themed Wacky Wipeout, complete with Santa’s grotto and snow machines offers fun for all ages.

Try out the reindeer hoopla, ride the rodeo reindeer, throw yourself down the Christmas slides and attempt to get past the giant moving inflatables.

Or you could re-create children’s board game Hungry Hippos in real life, where you try to grab more balls than your opponents before being ‘sprung’ backwards.

Fun-seekers can book one and a half hour slots in specific age categories which begin at 10am, with over-18s sessions reserved for the evenings. The Wipeout Arena closes at 10pm.

Parents must either purchase a spectator or participant ticket if they would like to join their child on the attraction.
