Tips to see Santa during the holidays:
•We encourage you to visit Santa as early in the holiday season as possible. The closer to Christmas, the longer the wait will be.

•The earlier in the day you arrive, the better. Arriving just as we open at 10:00am will have shorter wait times. Weekdays before 3:00pm will have shorter wait times.

•Please be prepared for a 2-3 hour wait to see Santa in the final weeks before Christmas.

*Santa does take several short breaks throughout the day.
*Santa's schedule is subject to change without notice.
