Santa’s Whimsical Wonderland

Welcome to Santa’s Whimsical Wonderland: The 2021 Experience, located next to Best Buy!

Santa is coming to town November 11-December 24!


Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

Welcome to Santa’s Whimsical Wonderland: The 2021 Experience! In a more magical-than-ever setting, we transport you to the North Pole for an intimate, safe, encompassing experience inside our whimsical wonderland (located next to Best Buy).

NEW THIS YEAR: Introducing Fast Pass! Although an appointment is NOT required to visit Santa, Fast Pass Zones allow you to book a place in line to visit Santa rather than waiting in a longer line. There are two 20 minute Fast Past Zones per hour – 12 spots per zone. This guarantees your place in line regardless of any walk up traffic.


The Fast Pass Zone reserves your time in line, NOT YOUR TIME WITH SANTA. As always, we will usher you and your family in to experience Santa’s Whimsical Wonderland and to visit with Santa when it is your turn.


Here’s what you can expect during this years experience:

  • 2 Settings! Enjoy your experience with Santa in your choice of either The Fireplace or The Sleigh setting!
    • The Fireplace Set
      • Set in front of our fun and whimsical Santa house, a second chair has been added so that children and families can use our oversized Santa Settee while Santa provides safe distancing by sitting on the other side of the fireplace or you can choose to have Santa sit with you in the Settee…the choice is yours.
    • The Sleigh
      • What is more whimsical than a photo set in Santa’s sleigh? Shot from an elevated position to showcase your family and the setting, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this new setting. Santa will also be available to sit in the sleigh with families this year!

Read on below for important info and tips for preparing for your visit!

There is no additional cost for booking a Fast Pass for your family, but a photo purchase is required for a visit to see Santa.

Is a mask required to partake in the Santa experience?

Masks will be strongly encouraged for unvaccinated guests to protect Santa, our staff and guests.  If you feel the need to mask or would like our staff to mask up for your visit, please inform our staff prior to entering and we will gladly mask up for your visit. If a mask is worn, it may be taken down for your photo!

Masks will not be mandated.


What do you mean when you mentioned having two sets?

Since we had so much positive feedback on having two sets last year, we’ve decided to continue with the fun this year! We’ve created two magical sets for visits with Santa – Santa’s sleigh and Santa’s living room.

Am I able to take my own photos?

While taking photos within the experience, leading up to Santa, is allowed, personal photography with Santa is prohibited.
