Santa’s Flight Academy Details
Santa’s Flight Academy is an interactive experience on your child’s way to meeting Santa for photos. By registering your child, the child will receive a personalized badge with the child’s photo, first name, and favorite elf. This badge will unlock experiences throughout Santa’s Flight Academy. When your child first enters the Santa’s Flight Academy set, they will be instructed to scan their badge, upon which the child’s name will appear on a screen along with the words “access granted”. At the Flight Suit Visualizer, each child scans their badge again and will be greeted by his or her favorite elf and then get a one of a kind opportunity to play and dance while watching a virtual flight suit appear on each child’s body. Inside the sleigh, the child will experience music, digital dancing elves on screens and a personalized thank you from the child’s favorite elf who will spell out the child’s name to say congratulations for saving Christmas. When the child visits Santa, he will have Santa’s Nice List showing the name of each child so he can personally greet them. Finally, after the experience, we will send parents a link to a video of each child’s experience at the Flight Suit Visualizer. The link is only sent to the parent, but anyone with whom a parent shares the link will also be able to see the video. Optionally, visitors can use a generic badge that will enable parts of the experience, but will not provide the personalized features described above.

Stockpiling Mom says
Oh thanks for sharing the Santa’s Flight Academy with us! This looks like a great family fun activity to do with the kids! Adding it onto my list for fun holiday activities!
Sue Reddel says
What a wonderfully fun family experience! I love all the personalization the kids must have just loved seeing their names on the screen and having Santa know their name. Take the time to go through the fun process must really relax the kids any make them more likely not to be afraid and start crying.
Lisa Codina says
How cute is this?! I wished I lived in Denver right now as my kids would love this! It's so personalized and really makes the kids feel like the experience is only theirs!
David Elliott says
This does look like it would be such a fun event for the kids. Learning how to fly with Santa Claus would definitely be something worth participating in. That's great that your child didn't freak out. i remember those days when my daughter was afraid of the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus.
Karlyn Cruz says
To be honest, my son has never taken a picture with Santa. He never wanted to, but he does believe in Santa. I think it's actually good because seeing him from a distance makes it so much better so he doesn't freak out.
I love this Santa flight. I love that they can see their names on the screen. I know how great that is for kids.
