This Christmas make family memories to cherish! Join us for a magical ride on an enchanting vintage sleigh... Journey to Lapland on this magical moving ride, pulled by two trusty reindeer.  Meet Santa, tell him your Christmas wishes and receive a special gift. 

After 60 years at the Co-op department store, Santa’s Sleigh ride moved to Coventry Transport Museum and families can once again enjoy the magic and tradition of a visit to Santa on this extraordinary vintage ride. An experience like no other, the sleigh is uniquely nostalgic. They don't make them like this anymore!


Santa’s Top Tip #1 It gets very busy as it gets near to Christmas so avoid the queues by coming to see Santa as soon as you can.

Santa’s Top Tip #2 Remember we are open in term time which is an ideal quieter time to bring pre-schoolers to enjoy their visit.
