We had a lovely prize to give away a couple of months ago for a trip to the Santa Expereince in Airfield and we actually booked ourselves to go with my mum aka Ga Ga as she missed out on our Rathwood adventure.
We were booked yesterday for 3pm and got a well informed email the day before to advise arriving a little early to enjoy the other activities available.
We arrived at 2.15 on a wet and miserable day but were quickly checked in and shown to the hot chocolate and mulled wine tent.
At 2 minutes past 3 we were all led through to Santas house which was warm and inviting. All the children sat and listened to Santa tell a story-well Josh rushed forward fearless in comparison to previous Santa visits and delivered his letter to the big man. After a quick story each child was asked their name and what they would like. It was then time to receive a lovely gift and a quick piccie with Santa too.
The experience is definitely better for younger children and whilst very simple for the cost of the tickets, on a nice day you could take full value in experiencing the farm too. The Santa himself was just lovely, the gifts well thought out in a lovely customised bag and not plastic rubbish. I also really liked the way you didn’t have to wait for Santa in the group setting but still felt you got your time with him.
