This year they have the theme of the Polar Express.
Kids get a golden ticket to ride the train, there's a playground slide, movie is showing, you can write a letter to Santa or Email for instant reply.
It's great - we've been twice already!
Santa's room is lovely. Rudolph is sleeping by the fire!

We went early last week, it was very quiet  and DD rode the train 3 times and loved it!

There are height limits (have to be over and under certain heights to ride).

Definitely worth going before the school holidays start because it will probably get really busy then.

Whats the limits? Dylan is only 70cm but he will go with his cousins so could sit on a lap (they will argue over whose lap LOL he is very much loved)

I think she meant for the train!!
I don't think Santa has imposed height restrictions for lap sitting yet! Poor bugger is going to get my nearly nine year old!

Sounds great, we just bought the dvd for DS because he loved it so much after he watched the taped one but he thought it ended every time the ads came on.

I like the idea of a Santa breakfast!!  I think I'll call about that tomorrow  cool.gif  

Limited numbers, hopefully that includes a little trip into Santaland & the rides & a photo with Santa.  Something different.

Thank you!

We saw Santa on Monday and he was great. Went back on Wed to have our pics taken and that Santa was a bit dippy (On day release from the old folks home!!). The pics were terrible, but they didn't charge me, just said to try again later.
I did an email from Santa for my DH saying he had been naughty and not done his chores, a bit of a giggle!!
Should have organised an EB play meet at Santa Land!!!!

Err no I wouldn't think so it wouldn't be very safe at his age?

The upper limit is quite low, i.e. the kids age it would be suitable for would be 2-7year olds. I wouldn't want a 7 year old holding my 7 month old who may squirm etc. They wouldnt let him on. There is a little train like the coin operated ones in the shopping centres that you would be able to hold him on safely.

#16 WildMum

Posted 01 December 2007 - 08:00 PM

I would have no problems with my neice holding him. She is 7 but she holds him so much better than some adults I have seen. The only time she has a problem is walking with him as he does squirm a bit and he is half the size of her!

I got the feeling I maybe looking a bit like a "bad" mother so just wanted to clarify.

Of course I haven't seen the actual train so when I do I may go  ohmy.gif  no way!

Kaylene, have fun...
We went yesterday and it is just put together so well - a real enchanted little Christmas land ...
Unfortunately GG screamed the place down when we tried to get her to sit on Santa's knee... or in fact go anywhere near him...
Never mind, maybe next year...

Posted 02 December 2007 - 06:19 PM

Ok so we tried....but decided that the line which went ALL the way round the toys section and back again was too damn long to make the kids stand and wait in...so off we went to David Jones...WHAT A MISTAKE!!!! There were about 10 families in front of us and we waited a total of TWO HOURS!!!!! F'ing ridiculous!!!! The Santa (when we finally got there) was very nice but a two hour wait is beyond reasonable!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ANGRY!!!!!!  

Went back to Myers after (330ish) and the line was still ridiculous so off on the real train home....*sigh*

WASTED A WHOLE ARVO sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif

#21 ~Kaylene~

Posted 02 December 2007 - 06:52 PM

OHHH I forgot to say...the paper visor made the 2 hour wait so much more bearable!!!! (can you tell I am p*ssed??)

Posted 02 December 2007 - 07:45 PM

We waited in the Myer line today for about an hour and finally ot to see Santa in a very little room with a pink chair, didn't like the decor at all. My kids thought it was fun but I wasn't overly impressed. They enjoyed the train rides and looking through the toys with DP for most of the time while my very pregnant self stood in line!

I will never ever go on a weekend again, we will be going in November next year.

Kaylene - we got a small red bag with a colouring book and some little crayons at Myer not as nice as the previous years little teddy bears. Hope you got a nice photo with Santa.

Ohh what a pain! We went Friday night, its been our tradition since 1999! We take them in at night to see the Christmas Lights... hmm shame about DLS  laughing2.gif  
BUT there was NO ONE there on Friday. We were there about 6pm and there were probably three other families in 'santa land'. One family in front of us for Santa, kids rode the train three times!

#24 WildMum

Posted 02 December 2007 - 08:40 PM

We got there and no Dylan didn't go on the train. We were there before Myer opened and went straight there. By the time we had our photo done the queue was quite long already. I think we only waited about 15mins at most. I was a bit stressed as I knew Dylan was going to be wanting lunch soon and I hoped they were quick as it turned out he was a bit mesmorised by it all and did fine. He didn't smile but he wasn't crying or screaming.

We went today and waited for over an hour  wacko.gif

Santa was lovely and DS pulled on his beard and studied his face very closely  laughing2.gif

Next year though we will try to go during the week.

BTW - Katie, did your little one have the same outfit on today that he has in your sig?
