The Santa Express
"Step aboard the Santa Express train for a magical journey to the North Pole and a delightful visit with Santa. Our dedicated elves have been hard at work constructing a new Elves Workshop, and their craftsmanship has been so impressive that Santa himself was inspired to design a new station for the start of your journey to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus.
As you travel to the North Pole, you'll pass through the enchanting 'Tunnel of Lights,' creating a sense of anticipation and wonder before you reach your destination.
Upon arrival, Mrs. Claus will extend a warm welcome and treat you to a heartwarming storytime and a joyful sing-along. And, of course, you'll have the incredible opportunity to meet the one and only Santa Claus!"
Get ready to lace up your skates and experience the thrill of gliding on our brand-new Eco Alpine Skate Trail. This 300-metre open-air trail is set to be the highlight of the festive season, offering a unique and exhilarating experience for locals and visitors alike.
