Theme park sets itself up for the season to be jolly with the festive return of its Christmas Wonderland

A magical experience awaits as Paultons Park invites you to step in to Santa’s Christmas Wonderland.

More than a touch of sparkle has been spread over the New Forest family theme park as it shows why this is the season to be jolly.

Although Peppa Pig may claim to be the main attraction at the park, Father Christmas and his team of elves have joined in the fun by setting up residence in their snowy grotto.

The trip to see the man in the big red coat begins with a wander through a magical winter scene where a whole host of animated characters sing and dance.

A toe-tapping tiger king, a tuneful tree and Rudolph and Donner the reindeer are among the many characters who provide a festive greeting at every turn.

It certainly helps keep the young ones occupied while they wait to make their way through the elves’ toy workshop and in to see Father Christmas .

Alongside all of this, families can still experience the world-famous Peppa Pig World at Christmas with twinkling illuminations, Christmas trees and much more.

And Paultons Park is once again screening the Christmas adventure film, Sleigh Ride, at its state-of-the-art 4D cinema.

Children and their parents can join reindeer Blitzen and elf Bobo on their journey as they help Santa and save Christmas.

Veterans of the 4D experience may not what to expect but will still literally jump in their seats as the action unfolds, complete with sound and water effects - and beware the spiders...!

Most of the main rides remain open as part of the wonderland experience, including the park’s new addition for 2014, the hand-crafted Victorian carousel. Sporting two levels, beautiful music and 24 traditionally painted horses, visitors will be able to gallop into the past on this enchanting ride.

Tickets for Paulton Park’s festive treat start at £22.25 and include entrance to Santa’s Christmas Wonderland and Peppa Pig World, as well a gift for the children.

All visits must be pre-booked.
