First-of-its-Kind ‘Santa’s Flight Academy’ Debuting Exclusively at The Mall at Green Hills This Holiday Season
Larger-than-life reimagination of the North Pole paired with state-of-the-art technology enables children to partner with Santa’s Elves to prepare his sleigh for its journey around the world
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 2, 2016 – To rediscover the magic and tradition of the holiday season, The Mall at Green Hills will debut “Santa’s Flight Academy,” a one-of-a-kind, immersive holiday experience that combines a giant reimagination of the North Pole with state-of-the-art technology to enable children to become a member of Santa’s flight crew. Partnering with an elf – either Sleigh Mechanic George, Flight Director Sparkle or Reindeer Caretaker Flash – each child will help ready Santa’s sleigh so he can deliver presents to children around the world.
“We are thrilled to offer Santa’s Flight Academy to give our guests an immersive holiday experience,” said Kimberly Shadwick, general manager, The Mall at Green Hills. “The holidays are a time for creating special memories and we’re confident children will be delighted with this new adventure that will surely become a tradition for years to come.”
Upon entering Santa’s Flight Academy, each child ‘Cadet’ will present their official flight crew badge and will be immediately recognized by name. From there, several of Santa’s onsite helpers will guide children throughout the experience to be fitted for a virtual flight suit, help inspect and power Santa’s sleigh before takeoff, and other tasks to ensure that every present will be carefully delivered.
At the end of the adventure, each child will step inside of a 22-foot-tall sleigh for an enchanted snowfall dance party before meeting Santa. Children will also receive a special gift from Santa to personally thank them for heroically saving the day.
Santa’s Flight Academy will be available exclusively at The Mall at Green Hills from Friday, November 11, through Saturday, December 24. Due to the unprecedented nature of the experience and anticipated high demand, visitors are encouraged to pre-register children for a Santa’s Flight Academy entrance badge online via each shopping center’s website, or through the mobile app available for both Android and iPhone platforms. Registration will also be available onsite at Santa’s Flight Academy kiosks located in each shopping center.
A variety of photo packages, in addition to intricate and magical 3D pop-up paper holiday cards by Lovepop, will be available for purchase. Santa’s Express Lane passes and photo packages may be purchased online in advance of the visit. For more information, please visit shoptgreenhills.com.
