You don’t need to journey to the North Pole to experience the wonder of Christmas. Santa’s relocating to Myer this festive season, and he’s bringing the magic with him.
Meet Santa at Santaland Myer for a photo to cherish, and a chance to tell him all the goodies on your wish list. Get in early and book your time online to meet him, so you can enjoy even more fun at the new virtual reality Santaland Express Train.
Hop on the life size Santaland Express Train at Myer Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth to take a (motionless) journey to Santa’s workshop at the North Pole. After your visit to Santa kids can enjoy Crayola letter writing, LEGO and Duplo activity tables, Nerf Gun target shooting and other play stations.
Having waited enough time to get up the lift to level 6 with a pram, imagine my 6 year old\'s disappointment when he found out there was no moving train to ride as he had the previous two years. He had waited till he was big enough and on the final year we had returned specially to ride it, we got told there was an hour wait to get on a \"virtual\" train experience where I couldn\'t even join him in its so-called inclusiveness because his sister was asleep in the pram. Thanks Myer for scrapping the highlight of my son\'s Christmas city trips and disappointing him irreparably for the rest of our trip today. :(
We went today to see the Myer Christmas windows and the Myer Christmas Train. Both the windows and the train have been a highlight of Christmas celebrations for my kids that we\'ve always revisited, sometimes with friends. The kids were really excited to go again this year. Unfortunately the train has been replaced with a large stationary \"virtual train experience\". Basically you enter a pretend train carriage and sit down, and a short video plays on the screens (in place of the train windows, the same on both sides) :-( The screen story wasn\'t that good and didn\'t even really make much sense, being a trip to the North pole to exit into the other side to see Santa or play at the activity stations. We were overall underwhelmed with the experience with no interest in my kids to go back :-(
