Santa’s Cove at Liffey Valley Shopping Centre promises to be the ‘Naughty or Nice’ Christmas experience of 2017. As the world’s population grows bigger and bigger, Santa’s elves are under increasing pressure to make more innovative and interesting toys and decorations for children each Christmas.
After months of searching the globe high and low, Santa’s most trusted helpers Fidget McPhee and Spinners O’Shaughnessy have found the perfect location for Santa’s Cove, an enchanted wonderland where children can help create toys. They’ll also get the opportunity to meet Santa and find out how good they’ve been this year thanks to a marvellous invention, the ‘Naughty or Nice Machine’ which will be located exclusively at Liffey Valley Shopping Centre, Dublin from Sunday 19th November to 24th December 2017 www.santascove.eu.
Santa’s Cove will bring boys and girls on a magical journey as Spinners O’Shaughnessy and Fidget McPhee head the cast of elves with their theatrical humour and charisma. The magic begins as the children enter Yuletide Valley and undertake a festive obstacle course, bounce through the ball-pit, in which they will then embark on a simulated sleigh ride.
Christmas songs will be sung with the elves as the children make the virtual journey to the Igloo, where they will enter the Reindeer Food Room. Here they pack a bag of special reindeer food to bring home and put in their garden or fireplace on Christmas Eve for Santa’s arrival. Next is the Toy Makers Christmas Decoration Room, where the boys and girls will get the opportunity to make a decoration using child friendly silicon clay. Their hard work is rewarded with a visit to the Elves’ cosy kitchen where Mrs Claus makes delicious hot chocolate with marshmallows.
The highlight of the visit will be the very special ‘Naughty or Nice Machine’, which tells how good the child has been throughout the year. When the child sits into the chair, the machine will shake while deciding if he or she is Naughty or Nice. The information supplied about the child at the time of booking the ticket will be printed out and given to the child along with candy bars lollipops, redemption tickets for arcade and a ticket to visit Santa.
Each family will have a 3 minutes session with Santa. On entering Santa’s room a photograph will be taken and after their conversation, each child will be given a present. As they begin to leave they will be called back and presented with a second small present.
Santa and his elves know that such an exciting experience can be a little intimidating for some children and so Santa’s cove will be hosting a series of exclusive sessions for children with special and sensory needs including for children with autism.
Santa’s Cove will run from Sunday 19th November to Sunday 24th December in Liffey Valley Shopping Centre. Each session lasts 1 hour 10 minutes and the cost is €25 per child and €12.50 per adult. To book visit www.santascove.eu
