Santa offers sleigh ride with a difference
PUBLISHED: 16:00 09 December 2010
ONE Santa has ditched his sleigh for an alternative mode of transport this Christmas.
Hovabout Ltd is offering thrill seekers the chance to ride around Burnham beach on a hovercraft decorated as Santa’s sleigh and piloted by none other than Father Christmas.
Rides on the special service will be running daily until December 24, at a cost of £7 per ride.
Hovabout founder Paul Barnett said: “It’s offering a new activity for holiday makers, and with a Christmas theme.
“All the children who have been on it have said they’re going to tell all their friends at school about it, and the parents have had a great time going round on the hovercraft too.”
Mr Barnett also said that he is in discussions with North Somerset Council about starting a similar service in Weston Bay, describing progress as being ‘in the talking phase’.
