🎅 Meet Santa Claus

Book your ticket and visit Santa and his animal friends in Santa’s grotto! Santa tickets are free, admission prices to the Animal Zone on the day apply and you will pay this on arrival. Only one Santa ticket per family/group is required so that you can all visit Santa together.

Choose a time slot that best suits your day and you will meet with Santa on a first come, first served basis during that time. Santa and his elves can’t wait to see you! Book here.

📮 Want to bring a letter with you when you visit Santa at the Animal Zone? You are more than welcome! You can either bring your letter with you on the day, download one here or there will also be a station in our craft room for children to write a letter to Santa and put it in the post box.
