If you ever wondered what Shawn Sanbrooke and his Theme Park Worldwide friends were doing this winter season then look no further than Uttoxeter High Street, where they have set-up their very own visitor attraction just minutes from Alton Towers!
Sparkle – A Christmas Experience is both an experience featuring a walkthrough and Santa’s Grotto visit and a Christmas shop, selling goods such as wrapping paper, tree decorations and handmade gifts.
After running charity Christmas lights displays outside his house for the past several years, Shawn (along with Alex and Harry from Theme Park Worldwide) has used his collection of decorations towards a walkthrough experience that includes several wintery scenes and photo opportunities before ending with a visit to Father Christmas. Admission to the experience is £7 per child with accompanying adults going free.
Watch as Shawn himself offers a tour of both the shop and walkthrough attraction:
Come and visit Santa in this Magical Santa’s Grotto and Winter Wonderland tomorrow from 3pm at Uttoxeter Lights Switch On!
Whilst Shawn has mentioned in recent months how busy he’s been working on a big project and for details to be revealed soon, he’s kept the news of his own attraction away from his theme park based YouTube channel and social media feeds despite the team appearing in newspaper and radio publicity for their new shop and attraction.
Look who’s arrived at our shop! Santa will be here until 8pm tonight! Come down to Sparkle to visit our exciting Santa Adventure for just £7 per child. Whilst you’re here, you can buy seasonal gifts…
Sparkle opened on November 7th and will remain open on most days until December 24th, with Alex telling local radio there isn’t a planned closing time on the final day to ensure everyone can buy last minute Christmas items.
The attraction already boasts a number of 5 star reviews on Facebook, including one strangely left by Shawn himself.
Sparkle is open now on Uttoxeter High Street until December 24th.
