The Forest Train Wicklow

The Forest Train Wicklow

Take a magical trip on The Forest Train Wicklow to visit Santa and his hardworking (and some not so hardworking) elves in his workshop, deep in the forest. Santa and his Elves are delighted to be back in Avondale Forest Park this Christmas.

Experience the winter wonderland as The Forest Train rambles through the breath-taking mature forest park. Keep an eye out for Noodle the lazy Elf who is running late for work! Stop off at his house and see if you can help the other elves wake him up. But, please don’t let Santa know.

When the train reaches its secret destination deep in the forest, Noodle will lead all the families into the workshop. The elves are waiting to meet all the children and there will be plenty of fun, songs and dancing while you wait to see Santa.

From his office, overlooking the workshop floor, each family will be called to see Santa individually.

Santa is working away in his office , he is checking his big book and you better watch out; he knows something about everyone, young and old! After meeting Santa every child will receive a wooden themed gift and can get a special photo taken with the big man in red.

After your Santa visit, there will be lots to do in the magnificent Christmas Barn.  There will be a very special story-time, taking place each hour.  The Barn will have a seated area where beverages and refreshments will be available.

There will be a carnival theme in The Barn with carnival stalls to prove your skills. We are very excited to say the Electric Zoo animals will be back to join the festive and fun atmosphere for all to enjoy.

Halloween National Reptile Zoo Kilkenny

DayOut comments:

Visited here in Summer 2015 and it’s well worth a look. The team are very knowledgeable and passionate and getting up close to these reptiles is a really a unique experience that you simply won’t get anywhere else! We saw lots of reptiles, large snakes and were simply a sheet of polycarbonate away from the crocs/alligators. Viewing the inhabitants of the zoo during the day is one thing – doing it at night with just a glow stick adds an extra element! Hope we don’t meet this guy in the dark!
