Christmas Island – The Santa Experience
The Santa experience will include an exciting journey on The North Pole Express, a trip to Christmas Island where you’ll meet the Elves who will try to bring out your creative side and also your wild side with a bit of singing and dancing. You will then visit with the mischievous elves before you head into their new secret portal to visit the big man himself in Santa’s Grotto.
The journey begins on the The North Pole Express train and on arrival you’ll enter Santa’s largest Igloo to meet the elves, make Christmas decorations and follow the tunnels from igloo one to igloo two to mingle with the fun elves. Santa will be on hand to hear about what your child would like and they will be gifted a present to take home.
