I thought the train was charming and when we were leaving it was dark and the train looked magical as it made it’s way through the forest! 
The elves were great fun and my gang thought they were hilarious!
I really wish everyone involved the best of luck with it!
A huge thanks again for a fun Santa visit! 
Best wishes,

“Just wanted to say what a wonderful day we had at The Forest Train. We all thought it was a really lovely experience and such a special day for us taking our Son Andrew to see Santa for the very first time.
We thought Santa Claus was wonderful. Very welcoming, very chatty and a really lovely guy. Made it very magical for us.
We have passed the website on to others for them to experience The Forest Train too.
Just wanted to say thank you so very much and even though we got the tickets as a prize it was a wonderful that I would have paid for anyway.
Love to you and the team for a very Merry Christmas”

“We went on the train yesterday and had a great time. My little boy was sick in the car on the way down and Nicola was so helpful. She put us on the later train with no fuss. The whole experience was lovely, the elves especially, who stayed in elf-mode throughout and made the visit special for children – and parents. The train was brightly lit which made going through the forest in the semi darkness extra festive. Santa was great with the children and overall we had a really memorable day.”

“Had our best ever Santa experience at The Forest Train 

“Well done to all who have made the forest train such an magical journey! Our 2 kids were captivated from the minute we arrived to board the train. The head elf was super as was the Santa. He had the kids and adults in knots laughing with his renditions of You Raise me up and Let it Go!! And he knew so much about the kids! I’d highly recommend a visit to experience the fun and magic of a The Forest Train!”
Avril O’Toole
