Santa’s stunt to launch grotto

Have your say

SANTA Claus will swap his sleigh for a zipwire when he zooms into a Rotherham tourist attraction.

Chris Cringle is putting his bravery to the test to launch Magna Science Adventure Centre’s festive grotto tomorrow at 11am.

Chris will whizz into the former steelworks via a 75ft-high and 250ft-long zipwire to be greeted by local schoolchildren.

Richard Smith, visitor services manager at Magna, said: “All year round we offer plenty of excitement for young visitors.
“But this Christmas we’ve got added magic in the shape of Santa’s glittering grotto.

“Since Santa’s arrival is so special, we wanted him to make a memorable entrance and a zipwire seemed just the thing.”
