Santa Visits the Big Top 2022

Join us in Rathwood This Christmas for an Unforgettable Journey on the Rathwood Express through the magical festive forest to see Santa, Mrs. Claus and their dazzling dancing elves.

Under the twinkling Christmas lights of Santa's big red top you'll be immersed in our spectacular interactive show for all the family, this Christmas experience will have you bursting with festive spirit.


Christmas isn't a season, its a feeling

Prepare to sing and dance along as we help the wonderful Mrs Claus and all of the mischievous elves get Santa and his enchanted sleigh ready for Christmas.

Christmas magic silent.. You don't hear it, you feel it. You know it, you believe it...



Please note that Santa will not individually meet each group, he will meet the Children in his Toy workshop as part of a group, this is the safest option for both customers and staff.

Santa is an older gent and we don't want to put him at any risk before his big gig on Christmas Eve, so social distance will be maintained throughout the performances.

What happens on the day?

You will follow Santa’s footsteps at reception to our check-in desk. Once you are checked in, the magic starts. Our elves will keep you entertained in our waiting area until it's time to board the Santa Train.

You will then take a magical journey through the enchanted forest where you will see Santa’s reindeer. The train will drop you off at the brand new Big Top. . There's plenty of room for social distancing as we have restricted capacity for these events, and you will be safely and comfortably seated within your family pod.

The truly magical show produced by Spotlight Productions (RTE Toy Show creators) will let you and your children meet Santa, Mrs Claus and all the elves in a musical spectacular themed around A Child's Imagination At Christmas..

After the show, you will walk to our Toy factory where each child will receive their present from Santa. You will then walk back to the train at the pickup point and it will drop you off at Candy Cane Lane!
