It’s beginning to look an awful lot like Christmas isn’t it?! If you love everything Christmas like we do Santa’s Magical Kingdom, at Crown Pyramid, is a wonderful event for the whole family.
Chef is usually quite the Grinch at Christmas, thanks to the festive season being the hospitality industry’s busiest time, and many years working on Christmas day. Little Chef and I, on the other hand, LOVE it! Once the 1st of December rolls around we excitedly put up our tree, crank the Christmas tunes and start planning our Christmas feast. This year on December 1st we were invited to check out Santa’s Magical Kingdom, which is back at Crown for it’s second year – and I can tell you it’s even better than last year’s event!
Here in the southern hemisphere we really miss out on a typical Christmas card style white Christmas, which is what makes Santa’s Magical Kingdom so appealing to us. The huge tent is decked out in stunning decorations, a whimsical winter wonderland and Chrissy music playing in the background – giving us all those Christmas feels.
There’s lots to pack into a 3 hour session…
Unlimited rides and bouncy castles for all ages and thrill seekers! The older Little Chef gets, the more of a daredevil he is. He particularly loved the Sky Flyer and Sizzler this year. There’s also lots of rides for younger children and wooses like me! The bumper cars were a hit and their teacup ride is super cute.
Christmas craft and activities including gingerbread decorating and tree decoration making. Little Chef decorated his gingerbread man in record time – just so he could devour it!
Meeting characters – Santa, The Trolls and Letter writing with Mrs Claus. You don’t have to pay to meet Santa, and all children receive a free gift from him. Little Chef was very excited to give him his special Christmas wish list. And he found the Christmas bear for a hug too.
The Winter Wonderland walk-through is absolutely stunning and you’ll be able to feel the snow landing on you and meet the snow fairy!
And then there’s the Circus Spectacular. This fast paced show is jam packed with amazing international acts. It’s story is around a boy who has all his Christmas wishes granted by Santa. He sleeps in a giant bed (a trampoline) and it’s so cute to see him jump on the bed. First the boy meets acrobats and performers.
Then some adorable and hilarious performing dogs! This was Little Chefs favourite part of the show.
Then there is the pulse racing “Ball of Death” act, which older kids and parents are sure to be amazed by. Being a bit of a rev head I loved the motorbikes.
Santa’s Magical Kingdom is a lovely way to spend a few hours getting into the Christmas spirit with your family. There’s so much to see and do. I just love their beautiful Rocking Horse – which has been especially imported from France!
