Santa’s Flight Crew Is Ready

Posted by – Stephanie Carroll, Manager of Business Development & Community Relations

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending a one-of-a-kind experience at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets. Santa Clause himself, along with second-grade students from Auburn Elementary and Oakland University’s Chorale, came to officially open Santa’s new Flight Academy.  This interactive attraction is sure to be a wonderful holiday experience for everyone.


The larger-than-life display of the North Pole has state-of-the-art technology that enables children to partner with Santa’s Elves to prepare his sleigh, among other fun activities.  Children become a member of Santa’s flight crew with a special ID and then partner with an elf to help ready Santa’s sleigh so he can deliver presents to children around the world.

Santa’s Flight Academy is located inside Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in front of AMC Theatres.  It was truly a magical experience.
