Sensory Friendly Experiences

               Wexford Winterland, Santa's North Pole Experience



Wexford Winterland provides a number of dedicated sensory friendly sessions in both Wexford on Ice and Santa’s North Pole Experience as follows:

Wexford on Ice

Sensory and wheelchair family skate sessions take place every Saturday morning from 9am – 10am.  These sessions give those who wouldn’t normally get the chance to go skating to have their very own special session, where the music and lighting is turned down.  It’s fun for all the family to get involved – parents and guardians can join their children without skates.  Wheelchair users can take their wheels directly onto the ice!

Date:  Every Saturday
Time:  9am – 10am
Tickets:  These sessions are free, we just ask for a donation to our charity fund on the day. There is no need to book in advance, just turn up!

Santa’s North Pole Experience

Be prepared for magic and fun around every snowy corner when you visit The Enchanted Forest, The Elves’ Village, The Workshop and Santa’s Reindeer Stables before meeting Santa Claus himself!
