Families can enjoy the wonder of Christmas inside every Bass Pro Shops store with "Santa's Wonderland--A Classic Christmas"--an over 3,500-square foot Christmas village chocked full of fun games, activities and crafts for the whole family -from November 10th through December 24th. (Event occurs in 57 stores--World Wide Sportsman in Islamorada, FL is not included.)
Now in its 5th magical year, the excitement begins with Santa’s arrival Saturday, November 10th at 5pm plus there’s a new special feature this year.
Comprised of both animated and live elves, nutcrackers, reindeer and more, the village offers an old-time model train area, remote control trucks, a laser arcade, a soft gun range and slot car racing. Kids can also play the hottest video games of the season with The Strike™ and The Hunt™. They'll love the activity tables where they can write a letter to Santa, color and do fun crafts every day of the week--all absolutely free. Of course, Santa will be in residence there throughout the season.
New to the event this year is a special ‘talking caribou.’ Every store will have an animatronic caribou which will play messages from a motion activated sequencing and also has the ability to interact with the crowd via an associate and a hidden two way microphone system.
Always a family tradition, customers can get a free 4x6 studio-quality photo with Santa from 3pm to 8pm Monday through Friday, Saturday's 10am to 8pm and Sunday's noon to 5 pm. Children who get their photo taken weeknights only from 3-8pm will receive a free Santa coloring book (while supplies last).
Photo and gift packages will also be available. If the line is long, they can just grab a Bass Pass and their appointment with Santa is set.
