'World's biggest' ice rink

Could this be the biggest ice skating rink in the whole world?

Well, according to the authorities in Mexico City it is. The huge rink in Zocalo Square measures 3,200 square metres.

People there can have a skate on the huge rink for free, if they're prepared to wait in the long queues for their turn!

Around 14,000 people are expected to go for a skate every day.

And to complete the larger-than-life winter wonderland there is a 50-metre high Christmas tree, toboggan slide and a huge snow area.
