Victoria Gardens will provide Inland Empire families with a unique way to visit Santa again this holiday season. For the second year in a row, families will have the opportunity to visit and enjoy Adventure to Santa – a DreamWorks DreamPlace. This special Santa house and experience will officially open at Victoria Gardens’ annual Santa’s Arrival event on November 6, 2015 at 7:00pm.
According to Melina Ferraez, Adventure to Santa – a DreamWorks DreamPlace is a captivating and interactive holiday experience for the entire family. The adventure starts with Shrek, ends with Santa, and seamlessly blends storytelling with cutting-edge technology.
The adventure features a virtual sleigh ride, which transports guests to the North Pole with the help of Shrek and his friends. Children and parents also enjoy interactive activities along the way, culminating in a grand finale celebration that includes meeting Santa Claus himself, and of course snapping a few keepsake photos.
Victoria Gardens is one of only two hosts in Southern California for the Adventure to Santa – a DreamWorks DreamPlace attraction this year. The second Southern California Adventure to Santa DreamPlace will be located at South Bay Galleria in Redondo Beach.
Reservations are required in order to visit the DreamPlace, which is now accepting reservations through December 24, 2015. Guests are encouraged to reserve their families’ spot as soon as possible through the Victoria Gardens website: www.VictoriaGardensIE.com
Photo packages will also be available for purchase when making DreamPlace reservations and during DreamPlace visits. Photo packages range in price from $35 to $75, and include multiple photo options.
Santa’s Arrival at Victoria Gardens 2015
In addition to the grand opening of Adventure to Santa – a DreamWorks DreamPlace, Victoria Gardens will host its annual Santa’s Arrival event on November 6 to give local families an unforgettable way to welcome Santa to the Inland Empire.
“This year’s event will feature the official lighting of our 45-foot live tree, a fantastic fireworks display, and of course a grand entrance by the man of the hour, Santa Claus,” Ferraez explained.
In order to accommodate as many guests as possible, the event will be standing room only, with no chairs or other seating permitted in Chaffey Town Square during the event. This will allow Victoria Gardens to accommodate as many families as possible so everyone can enjoy this magical event, Ferraez noted.
“The Santa’s Arrival event will also feature our first ‘magical snow’ of the season in Town Square,” she noted. “In keeping with our tradition at Victoria Gardens, both of these special holiday elements will continue throughout the holiday season for our guests to enjoy.”
Victoria Gardens’ yearly tradition of “Magical Snowfall” in Chaffey Town Square will continue with the faux snowfalls each Friday and Saturday evening at 7:00pm and 8:00pm, as well as Sundays at 6:00pm and 7:00pm.
Carolers will also treat guests to traditional holiday carols each weekend in Chaffey Town Square through December 23, 2015. Performances will take place on Friday and Saturday evenings from 4:00pm until 7:00pm (with the exception of Black Friday , November 27), and Sundays from 1:00pm until 4:00pm.
