While you can choose to line up for a photo op with Santa, we have the option to book your visit time during check out as an “add-on a visit with Santa” option which means your visit time is secured. We strongly suggest pre-booking your Santa visit when you purchase your festival tickets to avoid disappointment.

Don’t feel like booking your time-slot ahead of time? That’s okay – you can line up for visits with Santa however, we cannot guarantee that you will get to see him.
