Santa Photography

Santa has arrived at Charlestown Square
Santa is back at Charlestown Square at his Wish Catching Outpost!
The Charlestown Square Wish Catching Outpost (CSWCO) boasts an 18m high tower, complete with nine animatronic nets that swoop children’s wishes out of the air. Each wish is then processed in the penguin lab below and beamed to the North Pole. Children also have the option of sending a direct wish through the Rapidwishsender™, getting ideas from the digital Manywishgenerator™ or, of course, having a word with the boss.
