Christmas Grotto Logo 01

from 25 November to 24 December 2023

Visit Santa Claus at Blackpool Pleasure Beach!

Visit Santa Claus in his Grotto and enjoy the festive fun experiences, guided by our magical elves through our winter wonderland. Make your way through our Christmas Grotto where you will meet Miss Christmas Eve who will give children a ‘Do It Yourself’ bauble-making kit, and a brief description of how to put it together.

Then as you pass Santa’s reindeer don’t forget to collect your ‘Magic Reindeer Food’ & a ‘Magic Key’ so Santa can leave you presents even if you don’t have a chimney! Then after you have travelled through the Grotto you can stroll along Heidi Strasse and enjoy our Christmas-themed games*.

Enjoy a range of hot or cold drinks, snacks and amazing Bubble Waffles! Parents can also enjoy a warming glass of spiced mulled wine to chase away the winter chills, or perhaps a chilled glass of wine or beer. Available from the café bar in the Grotto and in the Pleasure Beach Arena Foyer.

Enjoy a winter wonderland ride!

This year, included in your Grotto ticket is a ride on Alice in Wonderland**, an enchanting trip through the looking glass in your very own Cheshire Cat carriage. Complete your visit to the Grotto with this fantasy experience.
