    Smile located in a cavern/cave

    Visit SantaPark, which is located in a cavern/cave 50 meters underground! Enjoy rides like Rudolph's Run and find out what it's like to skim over fields and forests with Santa on Christmas Eve.


    For a start, are cavern and cave all but identical in meaning?
    Second, what does skim over or skim forest mean? Thanks.

    Re: located in a cavern/cave

    Skim means to move just above something. So you would be on a ride in Santa's sleigh just above the fields and just above the forests.

    If you think of a hovercraft "skimming" across the water, it might help.

    Thanks, Jamie.
    But how could a sleigh skim above or over the forest?
    By the way, are cavern and cave much the same?

    Santa's sleigh is magic and it can fly. Ordinary sleighs obviously can't.

    There is a difference between cavern and cave, I think a cave has an opening in the side of a mountain or cliff etc while a cavern is largely underground.

    I'd need to go and check myself to be sure.
