Your mission if you choose to accept it, will be to travel to the North Pole, find Santa, and accompany him back to Blue Island.
If your children flip-out at the sight of Santa, become overwhelmed with treats, and/or get lost in the joys of Christmas, we will gladly consider your gratitude. This event will sell out within weeks. Good Luck and Merry Christmas. #MissionBelieveinSanta
