* Press Invitation
Last weekend we got the opportunity to enjoy the morning at the Snowdome in Tamworth for their Santa’s Winter Wonderland experience. We were looking forward to returning to the Snowdome to have some fun in the snow, enjoy their all new Santa Show and meet some of Santa’s friends in his Christmas Village.
Now into it’s 15th year, Santa’s Winter Wonderland experience is a fun activity for the whole family. We were really looking forward to the morning in the snow, so put on our wellies and our hats and scarves and couldn’t wait to take a look around.
Santa’s Winter Wonderland experience is suitable for walking toddlers, children and adults who enjoy the cold and want to experience the snow. Olly was really looking forward to jumping on a sledge and being pulled around and we knew Freddie would be keen to touch the snow given he was very young when it snowed last.
Enjoy the Snow Trail
As we entered Winter Wonderland what hit me first was the coolness of the venue. It was (as expected) rather chilly but we were all wrapped up and ready for some fun. There were sledges and snow tubes to use and lots and lots of festive decorations. There were lots of Christmas trees with twinkly lights and Christmas music being played from speakers. It felt really lovely and walking on the real snow was a bit of a thrill.
Freddie was a little unsure to start with but Olly ran off and enjoyed tubing down the slopes. He wasn’t brave enough to try those out when we went back in January so it was lovely to see his confidence come out and watch him enjoy himself. Shilts was encouraged to pull the boys along on the sledge and at one point, I’m not sure who was having more fun. They all loved it.
Warm up and watch Santa’s Show
After half an hour, it was time to warm up and enjoy Santa’s Show. We sat on benches and giggled as Santa and his two elves entertained the crowd with their rendition of The Twelve Days of Christmas. It was a really enjoyable show and everyone had a giggle.
Explore Santa’s Christmas Village
Finally, it was time to explore Santa’s Christmas Village. Here there were animals to say hello to (Llama’s, Rabbits and Piglet amongst others) a carousel ride to enjoy and the opportunity to write a letter to Santa. There were also photo opportunities to stand in Santa’s boots outside his lodge, sit in a ski lift and pose by the Christmas tree.
We all had a really lovely morning and it was great to enjoy the snow. From a personal perspective, we would have loved longer in the snow rather than experience the Christmas Village but that’s just our preference. As don’t get much snow here in the Midlands so we like to enjoy it when we do get the opportunity. We left the Snowdome feeling very festive and hopeful that we’ll get some snow of our own this year.
How much does it cost?
It’s worth noting that under 2’s go free with an accompanying paying adult therefore, for a family like ours; (2 adults, a 6 year old and a toddler under 2) the ticket price would have been £53.85.
