Would your kids like to meet Santa — in a new and unique and interactive way?

HGTV is celebrating the holidays with “Santa HQ,” an immersive experience that transforms the traditional visit with Santa Claus into an interactive journey for all ages at 10 Macerich malls across the country.

From Tuesday, Nov. 4, through Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, HGTV and Macerich will present a reimagined visit with Santa by pairing cutting-edge technology with an authentic holiday experience.

Visitors can

  • take an ELFIE selfie and star in their own holiday video
  • explore Santa’s Observatory using ELF-RAY Vision
  • see the secret inner-workings of clocks and gears
  • meet a playful pair of elves
  • test out the ‘Naughty O’ Nice Meter’
  • and enjoy a memorable photo with Santa

Reserve your experience time in advance via the Santa HQ website!

I actually saw the Santa HQ set in the Danbury Mall, and it looks like a fun family activity.
