Reindeer power Santa’s sleigh almost like a jet engine. The thrust created by the reindeer helps to pull Santa’s sleigh through the air. As the thrust forces air past Santa’s scientifically shaped sleigh, it lifts it up in the sky.
Santa’s sleigh has many engineering secrets that have not been shared with the public, including its actual size. However, thanks to photos and videos, the SantaTracker.net team can make some good size estimates.
The actual sleigh itself is estimated to be anywhere from 25 feet to 35 feet long, minus the reindeer. If you add in the reindeer, then the sleigh and reindeer together are about 60 feet to 70 feet long. The maximum load that Santa’s Sleigh can carry is unknown but given how many gifts are delivered on Christmas Eve it is in the thousands, at a minimum.
Santa Claus is able to deliver gifts around the world in one night thanks to his high-powered sleigh that is outfitted with the most advanced propulsion engine known to man. His sleigh gets a lot of help from his reindeer as well.
