Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - MT DRUITT-ST MARYS STAN­DARD, Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 9, 2015

AF­TER three sell­out Mel­bourne sea­sons, Santa’s Mag­i­cal King­dom is sled­ding into Sydney for the first time.

The $10 mil­lion pro­duc­tion, which em­ploys 200 staff, is a three-hour walk­through event com­plete with a Gin­ger­bread land, rides in­clud­ing a three-storey high roller­coaster, and a LEGO Brick Zone with free LEGO Christ­mas trees for the first 10,000 chil­dren.

An in­ter­na­tional cir­cus show fea­tures Ar­gen­tinian per­former Gypsy Gomez spin­ning 100 hula hoops si­mul­ta­ne­ously and three Brazil­ian stunt­men rid­ing mo­tor­bikes in­side a steel “Globe of Death”.

“It is a grand oc­ca­sion and the show is ab­so­lutely amaz­ing,” SMK’s pro­duc­tion di­rec­tor Keith Brown said.

“The 2500-seat tent is dou­ble the size of the tent used in Mel­bourne,” he said.

An­other event at­trac­tion, Snow­land, gives peo­ple the chance to see and feel “real” snow, which is ma­chine­made from 1500 litres of im­ported snow liq­uid.

Santa’s Mag­i­cal King­dom is at Sydney Show­ground, Sydney Olympic Park from De­cem­ber 12-24, with three sched­uled ses­sions per day (10am-1pm, 2-5pm, 6-9pm) to en­sure the king­dom doesn’t over­crowd. En­try is $140 per fam­ily. Visit san­tas­mag­i­cal king­dom.com.au for in­for­ma­tion and to buy tick­ets.
