Santa’s Elf Village – Under the Wishing Tree

Come on down to our elven bivouac to meet Santa, Snowy Flake and his friends under the magical wishing tree for stories and elf tales . Visit Dizzy Bells outside the Reindeer Emporium and take home some magical reindeer feed for Rudolph on Christmas Eve. Pop by and say hello to Postmaster Pippin McJingles outside Ye Olde Post Office Central to ensure your letter to Santa is safely on its way. Finally meet the main man himself outside Santa’s Cabin for a special Christmas one to one, and a little present for the journey home.

Running from 3pm weekdays and all day on the weekends and school holidays from 27 November to 24 December.

Booking is required. This experience is about 30-35 minutes in total. Adults will be required to book a timed entry for The Christmas Experience.

Inline with current government recommendations the Under the Wishing Tree experience has been adapted to keep visitors safe. The experience will now take 30 – 35 minutes, visitors will meet the elves under the wishing tree but will not be seated for a performance. Visitors will still visit the Reindeer emporium and Post Office and will collect their reindeer feed and post their letters from outside the cabin. Young people will visit Santa in their family group only and will be socially distanced and remain outside Santa’s cabin, to keep Santa and our visitors safe.
