We took our 4 and 1 year olds to meet Santa. Staff and train ride fun, as expected. However, 'Santa' himself didn't ask my son anything apart from what his younger brother was called. Felt rushed and like he wasn't comfortable with kids. Was quite...More

A good half day out, but if you've got young children (we had) make sure that they're running one of the steam trains. It's a nice ride, but the diesel unit is not very exiting!!

I give 4 stars for santa only, he was very good. The rest im afraid was pretty poor. Kids were bored on the train as nothing to listen too or look at of any interest.

Went on the Santa special which was quite disappointing for the money paid. Only a short trip for which Santa was only seen when getting back and visiting the Grotto. We were under the impression that Santa was going to be on the train and...More
