Christmas can now officially start as Little Hiccups have been on their annual trip to Sundown Adventureland. My children know that the Santa they visit at Sundown is the Real Santa (the rest are helpers as it is obviously a very busy time of the year!) so its now a given that we visit here to kick off Christmas in style at the start of December!
Sundown is a theme park designed for under 10’s. It’s friendly, well laid out and everything is easy to access. There are several play grounds and slow rides with lots to view and there are also two indoor play areas where you can warm up and grab a bite to eat.
|Getting into the Christmas spirit
This Christmas was our largest trip to Sundown yet with 200 people booking on. Little Hiccups took up 3 Santa Slots over lunchtime and it was nice to see everyone together. The elves are well aware of our group now and help out with wheelchairs and pushchairs where needed so that everyone can get a chance to visit Santa. And what a lovely delight that always is. I’ve been going to Sundown since my eldest daughter was 2 (she’s now 11 and still coming with us!) and we all still love the Christmas ride. This year my youngest daughter (just turned one!) joined us for the first time so we got to see the ride and in fact, all of Sundown, again through fresh eyes. Though this year it was mostly bewildered eyes as she tried to take everything in! Although it was the demands of the one year old this year that meant I failed to get the large group photo. I got some – but not enough to show the enormity of our group! Next year guys…
The important thing was everyone who went had a lovely time. We had several new families joining us for the first time, and several families where this was their first trip to Sundown. Hopefully, both groups will return for more as we plan to be coming here for many years in the future!
