With a snowball arena, Christmas tree maze, giant inflatable games and visit to Santa, the ultimate festive family experience has arrived in Peterborough.

In a brand new experience for the young as well as the young at heart – a large barn at Peterborough Arena at the East of England Showground had been transformed into the ultimate Christmas scene, where visitors can enjoy the spirit of the season like never before.

The Santa’s Barn experience is being organised by AAA Inflatables Ltd – a Cambridgeshire based specialist that supplies inflatable attractions all over the country. It promises up to two hours of festive fun, activities and a visit to Santa – all for a single price.

There will be a range of inflatables and games for all ages to enjoy before they begin their journey to Santa’s House, including:

• An indoor, carpeted and heated arts and craft Fun Factory for making reindeer food, tree decorations and writing letters to Santa

• Regular stage shows featuring a range of Christmas characters in the family zone

• A snowball arena

• An atmospheric woodland walk leading to Santa’s House, featuring real trees, log walkway, interactive features and free photo opportunities

• The chance to get behind the wheel at Santa’s Driving School (weather permitting)

• A present from Santa for all visitors in to see him

• A giant human snow globe for snowball fights and fun (optional chargeable extra).

And most importantly, the pre-booked experience will mean no queues.

Peterborough Arena head of sales and customer services, Charlie Lewis said: “This is a Christmas experience like nothing the city or surrounding area has seen before.

“We are delighted that AAA Inflatables has chosen the venue to host this amazing event – which will create an individual experience for each family – transporting them to a winter wonderland with real trees, interactive features and plenty to keep everyone busy whilst they prepare for their pre-booked visit to Santa’s Grotto.
