Santa and the Snow

Back for another white Christmas

Enjoy the magic of a real white Christmas at one of the country’s top rated Santa experiences

Sing along on the New for 2019 Polar Express Snow Train as you travel from INTU Braehead to Santa’s Workshop. Dance beside the Penguin Band and watch Santa’s Elves making toys for all the children around the world.

Enjoy the fun activities in Santa’s Workshop and make a special keep sake Christmas decoration to take home and hang on the tree. Don’t forget to sample some yummy hot chocolate and cookies in the New for 2019 Mrs Claus’ kitchen (it’s the elves favourite you know and even grown ups will like it too).

From there we move into Santa’s Story Room. When all children are sitting comfortably Father Christmas will come down the chimney, sit on his big red chair by the fire place and read a very special story to the group.

Then the tales been told, try the new Naughty or Nice Machine (which have you been?) before each child receives their gift from Santa.

When Santa’s all clear on what your little one would like for Christmas one of his elves will take you to the new 250msq REAL SNOW play area where you can play in the snow, try the ice slides and experience the magic of a real white Christmas.

Bill Crosby might have been dreaming of a white Christmas, but they have unfortunately become quite rare. If you want to guarantee both snow and Santa in one place, then head for Braehead, where children finish their visit to Santa by getting the chance to play in real snow.

This session is designed to be calmer and less intensive than our normal sessions to accommodate children who may have additional needs or require more time to settle in each area such as autistic children. We will also have the music very low or off in both the experience and the mall.

Fantastic day at Snow Factor seeing Santa. I have 3 kids of different ages and they all had the best day still talking about it now, my son is still doing the elf dance and my girls love their baubles on the tree. A great family day, want to go back and the snow fun that is free of charge was a great end to a family day.

Santa and the Snow 2018

Atmosphere was busy but full of spirit.. elves kept the children singing dancing and excited to meet Santa, to whom was a fantastic Santa. He was so full of fun with the kids and adults also, spent time with the kids individually after reading their story but mostly for me he kept the tradition of visiting Santa with a picture of my son sitting on his lap. Hats off to Santa he made a believer out of my son and i had one happy excited little boy.
