A spellbinding snowflake factory will be taking shoppers on a journey through a magical winter wonderland at Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City.
Children will discover that - just like them - every snowflake in the world is unique.
During the dazzling grotto experience, guests are greeted by a snow elf, before Professor Snowflake begins his story, transporting travellers to the snow factory.
It's not just about the magical journey - the experience includes personalised snowflakes, scented snow, snow caves, crystal caves and mirrored icy corridors.
The factory also features iPads for little ones to play a short game in order to create their unique, personalised snowflake shape.
Other additions to the grotto experience include:
- The Wish Cannon - Children fill in a Christmas wish list before placing them in special containers, where their list then zooms up the tube and activates a puff of smoke.
- Snowflake Scope - Children are invited to look through a series of microscopes at artificial snowflakes magnified thousands of times. From this, they start to see snow in an entirely new light.
- Snow Control - Children can play and interact with levers, buttons, cranking wheels and telephones embedded in the walls. Outputs include lighting, beeping, music and jets of steam.
- Pairs Game - Against a wall are a series of mirrored doors like an advent calendar. Children must find the snowflake pairs behind the doors.
The grotto will be open from Thursday November 23 until Christmas Eve between 11am and 6pm.
Tickets for the experience cost £7 per adult/child and Santa will give gifts to all children up to the age of 12.
There will also be a selection of photo packages available for sale at Santa’s Snowflake Grotto including magnets, baubles and keyrings etc.
