Igloo 1: Meet Mrs. Claus

Your journey will begin on The North Pole Express (Santa’s magical white train)! On arrival to Christmas Island you’ll enter Santa’s largest Igloo to:

  • Meet Mrs. Claus
  • Children will make a Christmas ornament
  • Get your photo taken on Santa’s giant red sleigh
  • Hand in your Colouring Posters (don’t forget to print this out at home and decorate) for the Colouring Competition! Winning posters will be posted to the Christmas Island Facebook page on December 24th.

Igloo 2: Have Fun with the Elves

Following the tunnel from Igloo 1 to Igloo 2 will bring you into the Elves dome where everyone will mingle with the Elves, dance around the Christmas tree and sing until your heart’s content. Departure from Christmas Island will take place after Igloo 2.  

The elves will guide you out to Santa’s giant sleigh boat. Once aboard and seated, the boat will set off for an exciting journey to Santa’s Grotto! No need to worry about the weather as the boat is fully enclosed and covered, however it has been known that festive cheer and merry songs are needed to get this boat moving!!  

So sit back, relax and set your eyes among all the twinkling lights, festive decorations and sing to the music on Santa’s boat. (Please note the boat will not operate in adverse weather conditions and the Elves will bring you to Santa’s Grotto by foot)

Santa’s Grotto: Santa Time!

Now it’s time to meet Santa!

On arrival to Santa’s Dock the elves will help everyone off the sleigh boat and guide you over to Santa’s Grotto. Once inside make yourself at home in the cosy grotto while Santa’s helper takes each family individually to see Santa.

Visit with Santa and tell him what your family will be doing for Christmas this year. If the children have been good all year and are on their best behaviour, then on permission from the parents/guardians each child will receive a present to take home.
