He will be in the lobby of the main indoor building, the “family house” in the center of the park (behind the large open space as you come into the park). There is no additional charge to the entrance fee to the amusement park for meeting Santa. There is no strict outline to this Santa event; they say that you can get your photo taken with him or shake his hand or just chat with him. He will have a present for the first 100 children (under 12 years old) that he meets.
**Like all events there could be last minute changes to the plan. As of 22.22 on Friday December 21st this information has remained unchanged**.
