Ice Slider and Sony Playlink Truck. In addition to the outdoor ice rink of over 450 m², a large Ice Slider will be added to the Winter Village this year. The Ice Slider thus completes the XL version and guarantees winter fun for young and old. Children from the age of five can slide down from a great height using an inflatable tire. Sony will be on site with a Sony Playlink Truck during the first week of Winter Village. This is a truck where game lovers can collectively play ‘playlink’; an application for use with smartphones with Playstation4. With Playlink, the smartphone is used as a game controller and there is the possibility of more interaction in games that you play with a group.
