πŸŽ… Santa’s Flight Academy

It’s the magic of Christmas that makes meeting Santa, getting a photograph, and going through Santa’s Flight Academy a must-do event this holiday season for all the children in your household.

After registration, each child receives a special badge that gives them access to Santa’s Flight Academy. This badge features their photo, first name, and the name of their favorite elf.

Once at the Flight Suit Visualizer, a scan of the badge reveals the favorite elf and an opportunity to wear a virtual flight suit, dance, and play. There’s music, digital dancing elves, and a personal thank you for saving Christmas inside the sleigh.

Santa greets each child by name for a photo and the link to a video of the experience is shared with you. Note: You can opt for a generic badge without the personalized information.

Visit Santa and experience Santa’s Flight Academy through December 24th.

140 University Town Center Dr., Sarasota, FL 34243
