This self-contained wonderland is a 'DreamWorks DreamPlace'; an immersive experience created by animation artists, storytellers and technology innovators and featuring famous DreamWorks characters. Visitors will climb aboard Santa's sleigh for a cinematic adventure set in a holiday cottage before travelling through the skies to the North Pole with Shrek and Donkey. Once they reach Santa's workshop children will have a special passport processed by an elf and will be able to earn 'nice points' by playing a tablet game while they wait to meet Santa himself. The experience is personalised and interactive, offering a very memorable festive outing.

A waste of money. Took my 5 year old who saw through the whole thing. Totally aimed at ripping you off An awful so called ride to the grotto, where you could see the cables and floor.  Rushed into a door to see a pathetic excuse for a Santa, Gave a cheap gift of a boys sticker book to a disappointed girl.  Got her name wrong repeatedly. You cannot take photos you have to purchase them. £6 for a tiny fridge magnet. You end up in a shop selling DreamWorks merchandise. Don't waste you money. If you have to go don't take anyone over 3, if they are bright enough they will see through it. She did ask me why there were 2 Santas! as it was obvious families were going in different doors!


I took my three little ones to see Santa at Westfield in Shepherd Bush. It was such an impressive grotto with the elves and santa already knowing who we were before we arrived, we were convinced it was the real deal! Instead of a cheap toy that my kids normally throw away after 2 minutes, they all got cute shrek ears. We all got to go on a sleigh ride (it's so realistic so a little scary for very young children who should definitely sit at the back) I'd definitely reccomend it!
