This Santa was the real deal. My wife pinched his cheeks - they were so whitey-pink - and was astonished how soft they were! And when he knew where our hometown Toogoolawah was, well I was astonished. Of course, Santa could get their faster than...More

It's really a wonderful visit to meet Santa Claus. He's very nice and chatting with him is a memorable experience. We chose the package with photos and video and got them downloaded to our phones shortly. Outside Santa's office, the area is a bit small...More

We were really disapointed. Yes, Santa can two pieces of info about our country. But the place is really without any special feeling. So take a photo, pay 40 euros for 4 pictures and that ´s it.More

So how do you explain to a child that Santa is now in this office, when you have just seen him in another building. We avoided the office as we had just visited Santa and didn’t really want to be offered more photos to buyMore
