Adventure to Santa will officially open on Saturday, November 5 @VictoriaGardens
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., (October 27, 2016) – It’s back and waiting for you – Victoria Gardens is bringing magic to the Inland Empire once again this holiday season with an all-new presentation of Adventure to Santa – a DreamWorks DreamPlace, featuring Kung Fu Panda. Children and their families will have an opportunity to welcome and celebrate the season with Po and the rest of the gang at this much anticipated event starting on Saturday, November 5.
“Because of the popularity of Adventure to Santa, we encourage the community to make their reservations early so that everyone has an opportunity to experience this one-of-a-kind event,” says Melina Ferraez, Director of Marketing at Victoria Gardens. “The fun surrounding the holiday season is a pinnacle time for our shoppers, and this year, there are more activities than ever before.”
Adventure to Santa – a DreamWorks DreamPlace is an interactive experience that the whole family can appreciate. Guests are taken on an adventure to meet Santa Claus, with a ton of fun surprises along the way. This year, the adventure features the mischievous Po and his friends from DreamWorks Animations’ Kung Fu Panda, who take guests to the North Pole on a rocket-powered cart ride.
According to Ferraez, this all-new adventure will give guests the opportunity to design their own holiday greeting card before meeting Santa, and learn how to drive a rocket-powered cart with the new Skadoosh Woosh Cart Racing game, in which people collect points as they compete against fellow racers.
“The best part is that the fun can begin right at home when you make your appointment online,” adds Ferraez. “Guests can book their preferred date and time to visit Santa now through December 24, 2016. In addition, families can personalize their experience by uploading a family photo to their adventure passport and writing a letter to Santa.”
Guests can book their appointment now using the Victoria Gardens website: http://www.victoriagardensie.com/event/adventure-to-santa/2145476351/
Guest pack options are available online ranging from $35 to $75, and include the adventure itself, a keepsake family passport, and various photo options that will have you remembering this adventure for years to come.
