This holiday season Freehold Raceway Mall, is introducing a modern, extraordinarily experiential visit with Santa with the new Santa HQ in partnership with HGTV!
Santa HQ is set to open this Saturday, November 12th! The new Santa HQ will invite families to experience the wonder of Santa’s workshop in the digital and social media age. This engaging new version of a visit with Santa uses digital tools to offer an augmented reality environment and a thoroughly new, enhanced social media experience for families.
At Santa HQ, kids will be “scanned” as they arrive to determine if they’ve been “naughty or nice,” enter an observatory where they will use special tablets to view Santa’s magical world – the night sky or Santa’s elves at work, for instance – be able to take an “ELFIE” (a photo opp as a dancing elf) and much more.
The traditional experience of photos with Santa also will be available at Santa HQ!
Visitors to Santa HQ can expect a jingle-filled sensory overload! Sights and sounds of the season will be immersive and involving. The 2,200 plus square-foot set was handcrafted in Atlanta and Santa’s elves were hard at work installing the new environment for Freehold Raceway Mall shoppers. Starting November 12, and seven days a week. Santa will be ready to host visitors at his new Santa HQ!
