“The Polar Express” at MainPlace Mall offers a safe Santa photo opportunity

“The Polar Express” at MainPlace Mall offers a safe Santa photo opportunity

Remember last year’s “A Christmas Story” Santa set-up at MainPlace Mall? Well this year, MainPlace Mall has a brand-new and COVID-safe Santa set to enjoy this year, inspired by the fan-favorite Warner Bros. film, “The Polar Express.”

We visited this new “contactless” Santa visit that began with a walk through “The Polar Express” interactive set.

The walk-through set, located in Macy’s Court, combines the best elements of today’s highly popular “selfie museums” and augmented reality interactive experiences, making the wait to see Santa as much fun as the visit itself.

To deliver a captivating experience, children will still be able to talk with Santa from a safe distance to share their wish lists. Guests, and Santa, will all wear masks during their visit and photo capture.

Photos with Santa will be taken with 6 feet of social distance between Santa and his guests, and each picture will be professionally staged to minimize the visibility of that distance.
