An enchanted fairytale family experience for those who believe in magic.
A Magical Christmas is an immersive theatrical experience for those who believe in the magic of Christmas. Within our Enchanted Woodland we have created a world filled with illuminations, musical water displays, interactive props, projections, and theatrical performers to lose yourself in. Along the elf hidden pathways our interactive sets have been specially commissioned for A Magical Christmas which means that this is a unique experience not to be found anywhere else.
