It’s beginning to look a lot like a… Conifox Adventure Park’s Christmas Experience!
Festive walk-through event with new Christmas markets featuring local produce – from 26th November to 23rdDecember
Local businesses reminded to book stall space early to avoid disappointment
Family run, for family fun, Conifox Adventure Park announces the return of its sell-out Christmas Experience, which the big man himself has said will be ‘bigger, better and merrier than ever’.
Here to sleigh, the festive fun returns in the shape of a walk-about winter wonderland which will have kids of all ages meeting their favourite Christmas characters and collecting stamps in their Christmas passport as they visit each of the sparkling shows. But beware, Santa and his elves will be inspecting the list (and checking it twice!) to see who has been naughty and who has been nice…
Speaking of the red velvet suited, snow-white bearded, gold-belt wearing icon… well, what is Christmas without him? Kids big and small alike are invited to visit him in his magical living room, where you can remind him what you want for Christmas (as if he doesn’t already know), meet his trusted elf Buddy and maybe even take home a little gift. You don’t have to worry that no one will believe you met him, you can take a photo as evidence!
Running every 15 minutes, once you have seen Santa you might want to visit the four magical shows which will really get you (and mum, dad and granny too!) in the spirit. Meet Postman Pete in the North Pole Post Room where you can write and post your letter for Santa to read, visit Patch and Jolly in the Toy Workshop as they make toys to fill Santa’s present sack and then take in the sweet smell of ginger and cinnamon as you enter Mrs Claus’s Kitchen, before helping her to decorate a gingerbread man to take away and eat.
After all that, make sure you take time to venture outdoors to the forest to see the tree-mendously spectacular lights in the Elf Disco Village and show off your dance moves with cheeky elves Sparkle and Waffle. Reindeer Flying School is also back again this year with Rudolph’s cousins, Floss and Flurry and Floss is trying to learn how to fly in time for Christmas Eve. Will you help her graduate with flying colours?
Finally, NEW for 2021, the must-visit Conifox Christmas Market will be open! Included in the ticket price, there will be plenty of stalls selling, crafts, food and more from local traders. What’s more, Conifox Adventure Park is still inviting local traders to book a stall, so make sure to be quick if you want to snap up one of the remaining few!
James Gammell, director of Conifox Adventure Park is ready to wrangle the reindeer… "is it really the most wonderful time of the year again? It must be, because the staff here are buried deep in baubles and getting tangled in tinsel! We can’t wait to see you again this year and hope you will love the shows and markets as much as we do. Remember, after all the fun has been had, just before you go home to hang up the stockings and jingle the bells, why not stop by our shop and pick up a real Christmas tree or beautiful wreath? Its surely not Christmas without either. Ho-ho-hope to see you soon!”
