The Magical Christmas Adventure | Review

The Magical Christmas Adventure | Review

If you are looking for a unique and unforgettable family Christmas outing on the Hampshire/ Berkshire border, The Magical Christmas Adventure may well be what you’ve been looking for! This multi award winning Christmas experience is in its 11th year at 4 Kingdoms Adventure and Farm Park and offers an amazing day out for Christmas believers! 

From flying sleigh rides, to singing penguins. From snow ball fights to visiting Father Christmas. From toyshops to build-a-bear to cookie decorating. This is an all encompassing, truly family oriented experience. Our children Dylan and Cecilia are 6 and 2 and both genuinely loved it!

On first impressions when entering the car park you may wonder how the magic of Christmas can be accomplished so wonderfully. But as they say, don’t judge a book by its cover, as beyond the tired reception and soft-play is a truly magical land which takes adults and children by surprise.The Magical Christmas Adventure is a place where magic genuinely happens. 

The elves and helpers create pure magic around every corner and Santa is truly believable. This unique experience asks for information prior to your visit which is incorporated throughout the 3 hour experience. Parents are an active part of ensuring the magic exists, for example my husband became a Minecraft character  (or Mind-craft as it is in the magical world) and saved Christmas, much to the delight of our son, Dylan. 

Walking through magical lands of snow, forests, toy workshops and magical creatures you are led to different productions, all as magical as the last. 

Father Christmas is a truly personalised experience for your family as information is given prior about what the children want for Christmas, their achievements and their interests. My son was speechless as Father Christmas knew that he had got an amazing school report recently and had his art displayed in a local cafe. It’s the detail that makes the difference. The children are given a key from Father Christmas which they then exchange in a toy shop for any toy in the store – a children’s literal dream! Included in the children’s tickets is the chance to build-a-bear (other animals available) which my son has wanted to do for a long time so this was a massive hit with both children! 

Cheeky baking elves encourage cookie decorating and a visit to any magical kingdom isn’t complete without meeting Mrs Claus herself! The penultimate part is making reindeer food (which I was so pleased didn’t include glitter) accompanied by super singing reindeer which our daughter Cecilia particularly enjoyed. The (approximately) 3 hour journey ends with a miniature railway journey back to human reality where on a grey and rainy day…. Maybe it was all just a dream? 

Brilliantly devised, expertly delivered and at parts truly bizarre, this is an experience for any age to enjoy and remember the magic of Christmas.
