Coventry Santa Experience

Coventry Santa Experience

Our brand new Santa experience will fill you with festive cheer!  Santa will welcome you to his sleigh lodge on level 3 of the West Orchards shopping centre in Coventry. He will show you a safety video and then take you through to the Virtual Reality Sleigh Ride… Once on board, led by our very own D.A.S.H, you’ll be transported across the globe (and even into space!) as we give the sleigh a trial flight before Christmas Eve. Hold on to your hats and antlers everyone, this could be a bumpy ride…

After the ride the children will chat with Santa for a few minutes and each child will receive a small chocolate gift.

Coventry Santa Experience

Seating up to 8 people, this virtual reality experience offers a perfect family attraction during the festive period!

Housed in Santa’s sleigh lodge on level three of the shopping centre, once aboard, you’ll be seamlessly transported into the virtual launch bay using our HD VR headsets. Your intrepid journey will soon begin, along with the incredible range of motions our sleigh has to offer; two front fans and surround sound for a fully immersive 4D experience. Tilting forwards, backwards and side to side, the sleigh’s movements have been specially designed to mirror those of the full 360 degree experience, creating a truly festive feast for the eyes!
