North Pole Experience: a Christmas Dream Come True

North Pole Experience in Flagstaff, Arizona.

A visit to Santa is a once in a lifetime experience and every person, let alone every kid should come to visit the main magician of the North Pole: Santa Claus. A trip to North Pole to see Santa and give him the letter with the most cherished wishes is sure an unforgettable family adventure.

Today I will tell you about the time my family and I had at North Pole Experience in Flagstaff, Arizona. We had a chance to see Santa’s Magical Workshop, and our family even talked to him in private and had a memorable photo with the younger son on Santa’s lap. And that’s not all. Just fancy, Mrs. Claus will offer you hot cocoa with sweets at her Christmas Bakery and elf will award you with their exclusive elf diploma.

Let the memories to last for a lifetime create inside Santa’s Workshop. But first you need to be registered at Little America Hotel located by the address: 2515 E Butler Ave, Flagstaff, AZ 86004. North Pole Experience tickets must be purchased online in advance. The cost of the ticket varies depending on the month and the time of the day. Night tickets are more expensive than the day ones.

20% Off or Free Shipping Personalization Mall Coupon for Christmas gifts and home decorations.

I got a little bit upsent about that. I wish I had brought customized gift bag by Personalization Mall with me. In fact, personalized gift bags by Personalization Mall are cheaper than those you can order at North Pole Experience, plus now when Black Friday deals are around the price dopped even more with Personalization Mall Coupon. Currently personalized canvas drawstring Santa Sack is now available for only $19.99 at Personalization Mall. Since I had no chance of getting personalized gift bag, the shop assistant kindly offered us to get personalized Christmas ornaments signed by the elves right there, at Santa’s Workshop.

Santa’s Magic Trolley at North Pole Experience in Flagstaff, Arizona.

The whole Santa adventure lasts about two hours, and it starts with getting on Santa’s Magic Trolley operated by a Trolley Elf. The Trolley has got dark windows, so you won’t be able to see where you go and what’s outside. It is of red and white color and has a huge North Pole Experience Logo depicted on it. The Trolley is unique as it can transport you through the Magic Portal right to the North Pole where Santa Claus creates his toy collection.
