Free Santa at Fota this Christmas


We are delighted to announce that Santa Claus will be back at Cork's number one visitor attraction Fota Wildlife Park this Christmas. Santa will be arriving at the Arctic Experience at the park's new education complex on Friday 2nd December with some of his Elves on a very special train.

The park is very excited about Santa coming back to the park once again in 2011. The Arctic Experience was designed last year by some of Cork's best theatre designers who have previously designed sets for both Cork Opera House and The Everyman Palace and this year it is set to be event bigger and better. The even better news is that Santa is included in the admission price to the park and if you are a member he is FREE.

Following feedback on last year we want to make our Santa accessible to more people so therefore we are going to give a token gift instead of a present and have the option of a picture for €10 if people wish. The park is also going to have the Red Tour Train decorated up especially for the festive season, festive food at the savannah cafe and a truly festive atmosphere this December at the park.
