Recently, we were blessed to attend The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Holiday Journey at the Fairplex in Pomona, California, and it inspired us to introduce the Elf as part of our Christmas celebration.
3 Things my husband and I loved about this particular Christmas Drive-Thur.
1) As you enter, these magical world kids are encouraged to write a letter to Santa that is collected by the elves at the beginning part of your Journey. (Hint you get a special surprise at the end of your adventure)
2) There is an audio story that you play as you drive through each scene that brought the whole story alive.
3) The overall event is interactive, and Imonni was immersed in the story from beginning to end.
The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Holiday Journey, a one-of-a-kind immersive drive-thru experience incorporating social distancing rules and health safety precautions, runs from November 12, 2020, to January 3, 2021, at the Fairplex in Pomona, California.
From the comfort and safety of guests’ vehicles, the experience takes patrons on an hour-long adventure to help save Christmas after Santa Claus encounters a sleigh mishap. Attendees will be transported through a series of larger-than-life, holiday dreamworlds to help find the magic Santa needs to fly again, including a Toy Repair Workshop, Gingerbread Village covered in decadent candy, Arctic Winter Wonderland, Santa’s Magical Grotripd so much more. Once the journey is complete, guests can enjoy a drive-thru holiday retail experience.
