The Real Santa

What is the "Real SAnta Express"

ACTIVATE will host this special event throughout December. You will begin your experience by checking in with Santas Elves, from there you will visit Mrs Claus were you will enjoy chocolate milk and storytelling. After saying your goodbyes, you must travel through the magical forest until you reach Santa's Cabin where you will meet the big man himself... St. Nick!

After spending some time talking to Santa, you will then travel to the North Pole. Whilst there you will get to have lots of fun with Santas Elves playing lots of Elves Games, Writting your christmas letter, Colouring In plus much more.

Once your toy has been made and had it final checks by the workshop elves, you will then be called to collect it from the Elves Workshop by the "Head Elf". Don't forget to ask the Elve's for some photo opportunities!
