Santa Express

You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, we’re telling you why...

Santa Claus is coming to town!

This festive season, embark on a Christmas adventure like never before… onboard our Santa Express!

All Aboard!

Climb onboard our Santa Express landtrain and meet our festive driver “Noel” who will check you are on “Nice List” and get you ready for your magical journey to the North Pole.

But oh no! Santa’s cheeky elf “Tinkley,” has been up to his mischievous tricks again! Mrs Claus needs everyone’s help to find all of Santa’s hidden presents before Christmas Eve. Will you complete the mission and help save Christmas?

Once at the North Pole, you can write and decorate your very own Christmas wish -to display on your tree at home, make some magical reindeer food, or even visit “Mrs Claus’s Kitchen” to purchase a festive drink or snack.

And of course, no visit to the North Pole is complete without a visit to the big man himself... Santa Claus!

Event Information

Do I need to book?

Seats are strictly limited, and we expect to sell out quickly. All seats must be prebooked to avoid disappointment on the day

What should I wear?

Please wrap up warm during this Christmas event. Whilst the train and Santa experience are mostly under-cover, some areas/activities may require you to be outside, and the promenade can be cold and windy.

How long does the experience last?

You should allow approximately 2hrs to experience all activities. Each carriage on the train will be allocated a rotation of activities to follow on arrival at the North Pole. This helps keep waiting times to a minimum, so please do not move to the next activity until one of our elves instructs you to.

What time should I arrive?

Please arrive at the Bridlington Spa Landtrain platform - located below the Spa on the Princess Mary Promenade, 15 minutes before your experience time.

Do infants pay the full price?

Children under 24 months can travel free of charge. A seat on the train will not be provided (they are permitted to sit on a parent/guardian’s knee.) A gift from Santa will also not be included. However, if you would like to provide a present, we will allow Santa to hand this out.

Are mobility scooters, prams and pushchairs allowed on the train?

Mobility scooters are not permitted on the train, due to weight restrictions imposed by the manufacturer. Prams and pushchairs are permitted, as long as they are the umbrella folding design. These will need to be carried in your selected row with you.
