Please note Santa Special tickets go on sale at 1pm on Sunday 17th September 2017. Every year without fail they have sold out within hours and people on the same day find they are disappointed. The only way to buy tickets is to turn up in person on this day.

If you wish to purchase tickets, you NEED to be there for at least 1pm to get in to the queue. Once sold out it is very very rare that we get cancellations.

Two questions we are often asked once people miss out on tickets

1. Why can't you run longer on the day?

We can only get a certain amount of children into Santa's grotto in the allotted time frame for the volunteers to be able to cope with and we can only run in daylight hours. It takes a few hours before we open at 11am to prepare for the day. Very stringent safety checks for the track and locomotives, as well as food and drink preparation.

2. Why can't you have second day for another Santa Special?

As the day is run by volunteers and more than normal open days, we just cannot offer a second day for Santa Special as we just cannot get enough volunteers for two weekend days in December. It could change in the future if we grow in size as a society.
