Yesterday we took a visit to Chill Factore near the Trafford Centre for a special visit to Santa’s snow Kingdom. This was our first visit to Santa so far this year and they have set the bar really high.
Whilst waiting for our turn to visit Santa there was a great waiting area which catered for a variety of age children with blocks, building materials and books as well as a selection of other toys. The girls sat quite happpily reading some books whilst they waited and I didnt hear a peep of “I’m bored”.
A member of Chill Factore staff led us out on to the snow to Santas magical castle where we had to knock on the door before going in to Santas room.
As we took the walk to the castle the staff member double checked the girls names and ages and as they walked into the room Santa greeted them by name. Santas room was full of presents which looked to be organised by age which allowed Santa to point the kids towards the right pile. Santa was a lovely old man with a real beard who was jolly and friendly and everything Santa should be.
Santa is at the Chill Factore at teh weekends in November and every day in December all teh way up to Christmas Eve and a visit to Santa also allows you to visit the Snow Kingdom. Children under the age fo 4 get to play in Mini Moose Land for 30 minutes and older children get to use a Snow Park Pass and enjoy 1 hour on the Downhill Donuts, the Luge Slip ‘n’ Slide, the Snow Luge and Sledge ‘o’ Mania. Unfortunately neither of my girls were feeling brave enough to go on everything in the Snow Park area (something they would normally do with Daddy) so instead they had a quick play in the snow before we left.
They both had an amazing time playing in the snow but we wish there had been a bit more snow so we could have built a snowman and taken if off our Seaton Family Christmas Fun list but we really enjoyed ourselves and will certainly look at going back when I have Hubby with me too so we can go on all of the bigger slopes in the Snow Park area.
I would definitely recommend this Santa experience, the snow itself makes it special but with lifelike Santas, decent presents (the girls got a magnetic travel games compendium each) and the whole place looking festive it really was good and if you check out the Chill Factore offer and book your snowfun activity in November you can get to see Santa for free!
