A Magical Winter Wonderland with Christmas at Paultons Park

We have been going to Winter Wonderland at Paultons Park, home of Peppa Pig World, for a few years now and I will admit that last year we found it a little tired and dated – not that the kids cared.

This year we were invited back to see the changes Paultons Park had made after investing more than half a million pounds into its winter wonderland feature and boy, it has made such a difference.

You are given a specified time to arrive at the Grotto and are greeted by some friendly elves before heading inside for a magical adventure.

Uh Oh!! Rudolph has got tangled up in some twinkling Christmas lights and needs help getting back to the North Pole to help Santa deliver his presents.


We crept past some sleeping polar bears, saw some animatronic animals singing and dancing and bravely journeyed over an icy lake – but hurry before it cracks. Rudolf was there to offer encouragement in getting him home.

Finally we made it to the Toy Factory where Rudolph had decorated his stable in the lights he was tangled up in. We then headed inside to see that the workshop had been brought right up to date with large flat screen televisions showing incoming letters, preparing his journey and even footage of Santa himself reading the letters.

We were then ushered into see the big man himself, where he spoke to Isaac, Eliza and Sebastian by name and had a lovely long chat with them about their behaviour this year and what they wanted for Christmas.

Instead of receiving a present handed out from Santa, we were directed outside to a covered area where we could buy our photo and the kids were presented by age related presents directly from the Toy Factory by the elves. As always the presents were well thought out and good quality.

Outside we got to meet Paultons new characters, Billy the mischievous elf, who took the kids little elves the kids were carrying to get up to some mischief with, as well as Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman.

The only area of Paultons Park that was open was the left hand side which contains Critter Creek, a 4D cinema showing the Christmas adventure film, Sleigh Ride, where Blitzen the reindeer and elf Bobo help Santa and save Christmas and of course the ever popular Peppa Pig World and it was all decorated beautifully with twinkling illuminations, seasonal music and a giant Christmas trees.


I love Peppa Pig World at this time of year as it is really quiet and we barely queued for anything all day. In fact we went on most rides at least twice.


We also really enjoyed the new daily Christmas Shows, one where the kids were read Christmas stories and another one with songs and lots of dancing. Us adults also enjoyed a complimentary hot punch and a seasonal mince pie treat.


We were at Paultons Park from 9.30am until gone 5pm and it was a fun-filled day out that we all enjoyed. Our only disappointment was that the Lost Kingdom was closed as Isaac wanted to go and see the dinosaurs.

    I think it’s good idea to have a time slot as so often at these places you end up queuing for ages and the kids get impatient and the parents irate!
