All children start off by creating a personalized Cadet badge (with photo, name and all!) that they will insert at different stations throughout the display to play along with the interactive activities. Upon entering Santa’s Flight Academy, each child will insert their official flight crew Cadet badge and will get a welcome message with their name displayed on the screen! If you were a visitor last year, Santa still has your info for a quick sign-in. Then, Santa’s helpers will guide children throughout the experience to be fitted for a virtual flight suit (video of this experience will be emailed directly to you!), help inspect and power Santa’s sleigh before takeoff, and other tasks to ensure that every present will be delivered.

At the end of ‘Santa’s Flight Academy,’ each child will step inside of a 22-foot-tall sleigh for a snowfall dance party before visiting Santa. Children will also receive a special gift from Santa.

Due to the unique experience and anticipated high demand, visitors are encouraged to pre-register for a ‘Santa’s Flight Academy’ entrance badge online via the Great Lakes Crossing Outlets website, or through the mobile app available for both Android and iPhone platforms. Registration will also be available onsite at ‘Santa’s Flight Academy’ kiosks located at Great Lakes Crossing.
