The $150,000 attraction, promises free winter and snow-related activities for children in the school break.

Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi said the City had received mixed feedback on the event.

‘The majority of children we’ve seen at the event have enjoyed it and this has been mentioned in a lot of the feedback we’ve received,’ Ms Scaffidi said. ‘We recognise the image and copy used to promote the event has given many an unrealistic expectation of what is being presented,’ she said. ‘We are addressing the copy on the website to correct this and the images used when promoting it.’

Some families missed out because of its popularity.

‘Perth City Snowland has received an overwhelming response and attendance has been amazing, each day tickets have been exhausted within 45 minutes of being available,’ Ms Scaffidi said.

‘It is unfortunate that due to budget, location and weight restrictions for Forrest Place we cannot accommodate any more people or provide a bigger event. ‘From Monday (yesterday) we will be using an online booking system, where tickets will be available for each session, from 3pm the day before online.’

Ms Scaffidi said the event had exceeded expectations.

‘Feedback received will be used when doing a debrief on the event and planning for future school holiday programs,’ she said.
