Whippersnappers Winter Wonderland 2016


The Whippersnappers Winter Wonderland Experience 2016

Tickets go on sale from 1st October 2016

Visit our Winter wonderland website to book your tickets

www.whippersnapperswinterwonderland.co.uk

On arrival Santa’s Elves will greet you at the Garden Gate. With Mulled wine, hot chocolate and mince pies they will lead you into the Magical World of Whippersnappers Wonderland.

In the Garden while Elves entertain with music and fun, snuggle up in Santa’s Sleigh. Spy out Rudolf preparing for his Big Night Flight while the children dress-up to help the Elves in the Log Cabin Toy Workshop. Bring a camera – you will never see them work so hard!!

Next an invitation to visit Santa’s Class Room where every child is a star. Lit with 100 sparkling fairy lights, with twinkling musical notes and fine aromas of fresh gingerbread baking in Mrs Claus’s Christmas kitchen the children will learn to decorate Traditional Gingerbread Christmas Tree decorations.

Follow Santa’s Sooty Footprints upstairs to the Wonderland Waiting Room to meet *Moth Starfrost the Christmas Tree Fairy. While she busies herself painting faces with fairy dust children have a chance to create Christmas crafts – something for themselves, a friend and a wish for Santa’s Tree. Build a sensory ‘snowman’ and enjoy a traditional christmas sing-a long. While Santa’s Elf rushes to and fro ringing a bell to call each child into Santa’s Grotto. Meeting the big man in red, the children hang their Christmas Wishes on his Tree, and with special Santa words of wisdom receive a natural magical present.

Then it’s down the stairs to our Christmas Arts & Crafts/Toy Shop – clutching goodie bags the children collect their Gingerbread Christmas Tree decorations and the Photograph – a memory of their visit.

Your Whippersnapper Winter Wonderland experience will last one hour.

*Moth Starfrost the Fairy wears dresses stitched with crystals and has handsome pink butterfly wings. Granting wishes and casting spells, she lives close to caverns and stalactite grottoes and can only be seen during the first snow of winter.
