Everything is ready for Christmas but Santa has lost his presents. Take a magical journey with us to the North Yorkshire Pole to help track them down.
The journey begins in our Station Hall which has been transformed into Santa’s depot filled with Christmas decorations, presents, toys and animals. Children will take part in a number of fun activities to search for Santa’s missing presents and load them into his sleigh.
From here your little Santa’s helpers will climb onboard a beautiful festive carriage pulled by steam train Teddy, and snuggle up in blankets to enjoy a special interactive story telling adventure. Before the magical steam journey is over, children will meet Santa Claus himself and receive a special present to take home.
Adults will be treated to a hot drink and mince pie in our restaurant after the experience and children will receive a Christmas themed biscuit and soft drink. (Our restaurant closes at 5pm, so if you're booked on a ride at 3.50pm, 4.25pm or 5pm, it's best to get these beforehand.)
Lynne Brammall sent us this lovely feedback from last year's adventure:
"What can I say about the day... words like magical, enchanting, wonderful, exceptional just do not seem enough. You built the excitement and anticipation so beautifully that even the adults could not fail to be drawn in. My 6-year-old grandaughter came away convinced that this was the real Santa who had taken time to come and see them. A magical start to Christmas for all of us, not just the children."
