With the festive season just around the corner but social distancing regulations still in place, the UK’s longest indoor snow slope, Chill Factore, is keeping the magic of Christmas alive by bringing Santa, and his grotto, to the comfort of your own home.

For the first time ever at the Manchester snow slope, children will be able to share their Christmas list with Santa via the power of video call. With the help of some specially trained elves, Santa has been brought up to date with all the latest technology, and will be available for exclusive live, interactive video calls with you and your little ones.

From 5th December until Christmas Eve, Santa and his Helpers will be in his magical grotto on Chill Factore’s real snow, before he flies off to make some very important deliveries.

With uncertainty on COVID-19 restrictions between now and Christmas Day, a live video call from Santa himself is one way to guarantee good tidings for you and your kin. This virtual grotto experience has the capability to dial in multiple callers and have them interacting on the same screen, meaning you can safely bring your family together to enjoy the magic.

Expect snow fall, mischievous elves and an interactive Naughty- Nice’ometer, which measures on screen how good your little ones have been this year. Live and interactive, the calls are bespoke to each family to provide a magical experience and spread festive cheer in 2020.

Your grotto experience will be recorded and sent to you by Santa’s Helpers so that you and your family can hold on to the memories forever. After all, it’s not every day that Santa calls!

And it’s not just homes that Santa will be calling from his magical Chill Factore grotto, as Chill Factore are also working closely with Saint Nick to bring this festive experience to the bedside of patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) for free, helping to bring Christmas onto the wards and make it a home from home for those children being treated in hospital over the festive season.

The Santa Calls experience will run from Saturday 5th December until 24th December 2020 and each call to Santa will last around five minutes. The experience can be booked from £20.99, and includes the call recording and the option to add multiple callers/screens so that the whole family can be brought together.

You can also text SANTA to 70125 to donate £2 to Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity to support seriously ill children this Christmas time.
