A Magical Christmas expects to bring 20,000 people to Castleblayney!

December 2, 2013

People are travelling from all over the Country to visit GR8’s ‘Magical Christmas’ Event. The event has began running and will run until the 22nd Dec and word is travelling fast about the truly magical experience.

Why is this? Well, this is not just a case of seeing the big man in the red suit: It is an interactive experience where children are totally stimulated and enthralled by the activities they take part in.  One parent told us ‘From start to finish, my children participated. I sat down and watched as Mrs Christmas Tree and the Elves guided a craft activity. Then Mrs Claus asked for all the children’s help in making the Reindeer food, adding the magic ingredients that enables them to pull Santa’s sleigh.  When Santa himself came down the chimney, the children sat with their mouths open. He spoke kindly to them and they all in turn, got a good decent gift.  This is more like a show that the children become part of.

The staff are obviously used to entertaining children and keeping their attention. The place is filled with energy and the props are amazing.  They have really got the Christmas buzz going on, with classic Christmas songs playing outside and throughout the building.  Christmas trees, lights and decorations catch the eye from every angle and you get the aroma of cinnamon in every room.  Talk about thinking of every little detail. And we were so well looked after with complimentary drinks and mince pies. I can’t recommend this highly enough’.  GR8 is a children’s entertainment centre specializing in children’s birthday parties.  They have mega soft play frames, an astro turf pitch, bowling and go-karts, as well as a restaurant and bar.  People are also linking their birthday parties to the Magical Christmas event, and Teachers attending with school tours say they are met with a friendly service that is second to none.  Tel:  042-9749955
