Are you still looking for a festive day out during the run up to Christmas? I have to say Santa’s Winter Wonderland at The Snow Dome Tamworth is well worth a visit.
The Snow Dome
There really is enough for a whole day out at The Snow Dome I wish we had had more time to explore and use the facilities there.
There’s climbing, a pool, gym, ski slope for skiing and boarding as well as ice skating and snow play. There is also a choice of two places to refuel between activities.
Santa’s Winter Wonderland
When you book you can choose your time slot for your 90 minute visit. This ensures that the trail isn’t too crowded. Once there you head down into the ice cave and are entertained by one of santa’s special friends.
Inside Santa’s Winter Wonderland
Then it’s time to head inside the trail. There are little wooden sledges to ride around the real snow on. As soon as you step through the doors it just feel so festive. Fairy lights are strung, snow is falling and there is the mother of all christmas trees adorning the trail.
As you go in there is a slope for you to slide down on the snow tubes. as well as a couple of little slopes around the trail.
Obviously as the trail is filled with real snow a snowball fight is a must and the kids absolutely loved being able to throw snowballs at me and thier big brother.
Dotted around are a few photo opportunities like the giant christmas tree and santa’s sleigh.
Listen For The Trumpets
It wasn’t long before trumpets were sounded signaling Santa was about to arrive with his friends to give us a show.
This interactive panto style show is filled with daft gags for the adults, puppets and santa for the kids it’s a great way to get into the festive mood.
Santa’s Fury Friends
Once the show has finished its time to meet some of Santa’s fury friends.
Rabbits, goats, ducks and more but no reindeer. I thinks thats because they have to rest up in the run up to christmas ready for flighing the sleigh.
Once you’ve said hello to the animals there is a carousel for the kids to ride. I just love a traditional looking carousel there’s something so magical about them.
As this place is full of real snow it’s obviously pretty chilly but no fear there’s a hot chocolate station ready to warm you up. and numerous more photo opportunities ready for your christmas pictures.
Before you leave don’t forget to write your letter to santa and post it in the talking post box.
Santa’s Winter Wonderland Wrapped Up
This really is a super festive day out for all the family we will definitely be back next year. Its got to be one for the christmas bucket list!
Its advisable to wrap up well it really is real snow and as such its can be cold and wet. I would advise some waterproofs or snow gear. or bring a change of clothes. Gloves are a must and maybe a festive woolly hat not only to keep your head warm but also to look good in those festive photos.
Booking is super easy and you can pick your time slot online or over the phone.
Santa’s Winter Wonderland at The Snow Dome Tamworth is also running right into the new year so if your looking to buy a unique clutter free gift why not get the kids a trip to this festive day out. It’s not expensive either even the prime days are under £20 per person. Making it a super affordable gift..
I was gifted a mine and my kids entrance to a press morning in return for a honest review. All opinions are my own and I do not work with anyone who don’t fit with our family ethos.
