Myer Santaland, Perth CBD
Open from Friday 20th November.
Myer Santaland is on again at the Perth City department store. Due to COVID-19 things are being done a little differently this year. All Santaland visits require a booking which can be done online, and all booking members must be from the same household. 6 family members are permitted per booking. This ensures your safety by managing the number of people in Santaland at one time.
There will also be stringent social distancing therefore no physical contact with Santa or his elves. Unfortunately this year there will be no activity areas in all stores.
Our review following on is currently from our visit in 2019.
As you arrive you will be greeted by some cheeky elves who will take you aboard the Santaland Express.
While the train does not move, at times it definitely feels like it does! The screens on the magical train will help ‘transport’ you the snowy mountains to find Santa. Along the way, watch out for Rudolph and his reindeer pals pulling along Santa’s sleigh and the elves working hard in the toy factory… you might even spot some cheeky elves throwing snowballs at you. The ‘train ride’ takes about 2 mins.
Once you’ve reached the North Pole, another of Santa’s elves will take you to visit Santa, but before you get to see Santa you’ll need to practice your smile in front of a green screen – these photos are used to make some magical Christmas photos and are available for purchase after your visit with Santa.
Once your smile is perfect you will be ready to see Santa, an elf will take you to Santa to knock on his door. Kids have an opportunity to chat with Santa and let him know what they want for Christmas, as well as taking photos. Before leaving, Santa will gift the kids a colouring in activity book.
Once you’ve seen Santa, there is an activity area with festive activities, which includes building lego.
Writing a letter to Santa, make sure you put your address on your letter because Santa will reply!
A Nerf shooting challenge!
A chillout zone where you can watch Christmas movies.
And a virtual reality game you can play on your mobile or iPad, where kids can take a photo with Tilly and Flash, take Christmas selfies and take part in a snowball challenge – my toddlers were a little young to understand how to play, but I know my 9 year old would have loved it. The app is available free from the App Store & Google Play.
After partaking in all the activities, we went to the photo collection area to view our photos, packages start from $25.95, individual green screen photos are $19.95.
Come visit Myer Santaland for that magical Christmas adventure. It is located on the 3rd floor. Book online to avoid the queues.
