Our beloved Christmas event returns this December. Ride the Polar Express train to Santa's workshop, explore our Winter Wonderland and read festive stories with Mrs Claus.

The Polar Express experience features a variety of festive activities including:

- Santa's Station - A warm welcome awaits at Santa's Station, where the Ticket Master issues guest tickets and guests board the train.
- Polar Express Train - The train travels through the enchanting grounds of Slieve Donard, through a magical Winter Wonderland towards the North Pole and Santa's Workshop.
- Personal photo with Santa - Follow the elves through the Winter Woodland and meet Santa in his grotto. Kids receive a special gift from Santa and a personal keepsake photo.
- Winter Wonderland - From festive movies and letter writing to Christmas stalls and stories from Mrs Claus, it's a never-ending supply of festive fun. Make your own mix of "reindeer food," decorate gingerbread cookies, visit Santa's Spa and more.
- Refreshments - Continue the celebrations and enjoy refreshments and more entertainment.
