Check out these 5 reasons you need to visit W5 this Christmas.

1. Enjoy W5's New Theatre Show, Santa and the Great Christmas Upgrade

Featuring robot elves, high-adventure and a sprinkle of Christmas magic, Santa and the Great Christmas Upgrade is a must-see this holiday. Meet Bud-E, our young droid who is the creative spark in the North Pole’s Research and Development lab. This year, his boundless enthusiasm has put Christmas Eve and present delivery at risk! If Santa can save the day, he will have a gift for every child in the audience.


2. Meet the Ghosts of Winterly Manor

This Christmas, W5’s immersive AMAZE space has been transformed into the haunted Winterly Manor. Venture through the creaking halls of this house and meet the many peculiar personalities that once resided within these walls. What stories this old house could tell, tales of rogue pirates, of highwaymen, of spectacular winter dances, music recitals and exquisite dinner parties. And now, of ghosts!

3. Take Part in an Indoor Snowball Fight

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to have a snowball fight inside? Well, now you can! Leave the gloves at home and take part in an Indoor Snowball Fight where there is no chance to getting frozen fingers. Our warm, dry and soft snow is super cool, but not in a cold way. Come and try it for yourself!
