AN UPDATE

We are pleased to have increased the number of booked Santa's Enchanted Forest Experiences available this year and have reduced the price to $20 per child.
In order to support social distancing, our Enchanted Forest Walk experience is not available separately, but is included in both the booked and non-booked experiences as usual.

 

COVID-19

Please be assured we are monitoring all advice from the  Ministry of Health with regards to developments around Covid-19, our updates are available here.
Should any changes to our Santa's Enchanted Forest Experiences be required, information will be updated and booked guests will be contacted.

Our Santa Experiences this year will be a little bit different, we have strived to create a warm and cosy experience for Santa's special guests, while utilising the best safety precautions possible to keep Santa, Santa's Helpers and our guest's health and well-being in mind.

In the interest of safety for all, guests won't be able to sit on Santa's knee, our photography team recommending guests to be grouped together to the side of Santa. There will be a barely visible Perspex screen on each side of Santa, between Santa and his guests and Santa will be wearing a cheery red face mask. Santa's Helpers and the Christmas Fairies will be also be wearing masks.

Enhanced hygiene practices are in place, as are QR check-in codes. 

Santa is looking forward to seeing you and to creating magical memories that will be treasured.
