Arriving at the park the shopping village is transformed with Christmas trees, lights and a Christmas craft fare and my two boys eyes lit up when they saw a real reindeer. I nearly couldn’t drag them into the park. Inside we watched Christmas magic shows with the hilarious Zoobee and went to see all of the animals. We hand fed all of them and the boys held chicks and guinea pigs. We had a fantastic time decorating gingerbread men in a cookery lesson with Mrs Clause… Her elf helpers were fantastic, interacting with the parents and children telling jokes and getting them excited about Christmas. We had a time slot for the big event of meeting Father Christmas which really helped waiting in long queues however it didn’t matter because the walk through the enchanted grotto was unbelievable. After meeting Santa the boys were given the most generous gift. I remember when I was a child and meeting Santa at Toy Town getting a pencil …put it like this, at 38 I was jealous of my own kids at this point. I wont spoil it for anyone going by talking about what happened when we met him but he was the best Santa I’ve seen. After Santa we spent an hour in the huge indoor soft play area and had a nice lunch and a well deserved hot Chocolate. We were at Hatton for the whole day and still didn’t get around to doing everything we wanted to. A brilliantly organised, well priced day out and would highly recommend to anyone thinking about going.

We always have an amazing time here and thoroughly enjoyed the Enchanted Christmas Experience last weekend. The staff were completely in character throughout and a lot of thought had gone into making it magical for the children. The whole family was incorporated into the Santa experience and couldn’t recommend it enough. Our Santa was amazing at encouraging my little one to talk with him (he can be a bit shy) and made all the family feel welcome. The story line and ‘Santa’s Store’ was great and there were plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained. Thank you Hatton!!
