Each session runs for 3 hours and we packed those 3 hours with unlimited rides, cookie decorating, Xmas arts & crafts, meeting Santa, a walk thru Santa's Food village, ice skating, games and then some more....
We arrived a little early and prepared ourselves for a long line of waiting... waiting??? Well surprisingly there was no waiting. We found a parking spot very easily on arrival and at the gates we were quickly greeted and ushered into a nice relaxing waiting area with chairs, tables and room for the kids to play it even had a café. For those travelling by train its perfect the front entrance is at the train station.
Right on the start of our session time, the gates opened and our Santa Spectacular started.
My favourite ride was Free Fall or the swings. I really enjoyed my slushy on the way out.
I just really liked the arrangement. So try to go you will love it even if you are grown up, my mum did and she is old. I would say it would be rated for age 3 to 86 years.
The staff were very friendly and it actually felt like they enjoyed being there. The venue was well presented and decorated.
Most of the rides (free) and side show alley games ($5 each) were located outside with plenty of room to move about. There are lots of options for kids rides depending on age and thrill level. The lines for the rides were minimal.
Moving inside to the Winter Wonderland, there was a great atmosphere inside the pavilion with the roaming elves and plenty of options for the kids, more rides, ice skating and shows.
My highlight was meeting Santa, he was a wonderful Santa the kids laughed the adults laughed and we all had our photo taken. All children receive a free gift from Santa and there was no obligation to purchase a photo. All our photos of Santa were taken on our own devices.
