Waiuku will be an exciting place to visit leading up to Christmas season as fans of the Big Red Guy can catch the Glenbrook Vintage train from Glenbrook Station to Santa's Wonderland in Waiuku.
The train will arrive into town on December 5, 12 and 19. It's just a short stroll from the train station at Victoria Ave Waiuku, to Santa's Wonderland.
Jim and Phyllis Snedden have spent many years adding to their collection and love the opportunity to share it with others. In fact, more than 8000 people enjoyed the display in the 12 days they were open last year and Phyllis is optimistic that the numbers will be even greater this year.
"People are coming by the bus loads from as far away as West Auckland and the Waikato. There is no other display like it anywhere," she says.
"From the moment you enter the door into a Snowing Christmas you will be enthralled and entertained by the huge variety of animated Santas lovingly collected from all around the world. These dancing, laughing, snoring, singing and skiing Santas are set in a Christmas wonderland, complete with double decker trains and a fabulous LED lighting display."
All aboard
