Christmas Elf Escape at Marble Arch Caves

Family fun outdoor activity at the Marble Arch Caves


Santa needs your help!
A bunch of little elves have escaped from Santa’s Grotto deep within the Marble Arch Caves. There have been reports of elf activity in the local woodland close to the caves and Santa has asked for your help to track them down and to decide which elves are being ‘good’ and which are being ‘bad’. Come join the fun and adventure as Cladagh Glen is taken over by lots of little mischievous elves at play!

An epic adventure invites you to explore a trail of elves who have gotten themselves in a world of funny scenarios and predicaments in the woodland. You’ll never guess what they have been up to this year!

Keep your eyes peeled on your winter walk, as Santa is depending on you to find all of his elves and to complete an Elf Report Card to help him decide which elves to put onto his naughty list this Christmas!

Come dressed in your festive jumpers or Elf costumes but do make sure you wrap up warm. This above ground activity will be mostly outside, or beneath open-sided roofed areas on a looped walk through the wonderful ancient woodland, the perfect place to have fun outdoors this season.

What Is Included
This activity includes an Elf Escape Activity Booklet (1 per child) which contains an Elf Escape trail map, an Elf Report Card and a number of fun Christmas puzzles to complete.

This session begins with the children using their elf escape map to find the elves following a number of elf sightings and reports of elf activity in the woodland in the lead up to Christmas. They will then judge whether the elves should go on Santa’s naughty list by completing an elf report card which they can send to Santa himself through our special Santa Mailbox here at the Marble Arch Visitor Centre.
