Christmas Elf Escape 

Elf Escape Marble Arch Caves

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! 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.
