Make precious Christmas memories magical by visiting Santa in his Magic Castle on the snow! Snowplanet is hosting Santa in his Magic Castle from November 17th thru Christmas Eve, and with prices starting at $9 per person the whole family can join in on the fun. Each family gets a complimentary photo of their visit printed on fine photo paper. Personalized snowglobes, ornaments, and Christmas cards are available for purchase.

Santa loves to have fun, so we’ve created TWO tree-lined snowtubing tracks for Santa’s guests to enjoy! Just add on the $12 Santa Tubing Pass to your visit and have a half hour of tubing fun after your photoshoot with Santa. Breeze down both of our thrilling slopes surrounded by beautiful Christmas trees covered in snow!

Add some extra sweetness to your visit by popping into our Christmas 3D Ice Cream Factory, run by our own Le Petit Chef, Gaston. Watch as Gaston makes everyone’s favorite dessert and enjoy a tub of Kaipiti Ice Cream at the end of the show. The show runs every 15 minutes during Santa Hours for $9 per person, and the Christmas 3D Ice Cream Factory has 7 Kaipiti flavours for our guests to choose from including Kiwi-classic Hokey Pokey.
