Ho – Ho – Ho! Kringle Mingle is keeping the traditional Santa Claus visits alive this year through a new virtual experience straight from the North Pole. Families can enjoy time with Santa Claus virtually through different packages — ranging from festive photo uploads and receiving pre-recorded messages to interactive video calls with Santa and Christmas Eve Prep Packs with themed keepsakes and activities that will arrive at your doorstep.
“With our new virtual experience, one of the best Christmas traditions for kiddos won’t be cancelled this year,” said Caroline Connelly, Co-Owner, Clocktower Experiences. “Not only do our virtual visits offer longer one-on-one time with Santa, they are also a unique opportunity for long-distance relatives to join in on the experience with little ones, no matter where they are.”
From Nov. 27 to Dec. 22 families can schedule a time to visit Santa Claus virtually on kringleminglefun.com. Five different offerings, at five different price points, will be offered. These include:
- The Kringle Pic (virtual photo booth): For only $2.99, snap a photo or upload your own photo of your child or family, and choose from a variety of holiday-themed photo overlays or GIFs. Your photos will be downloadable for sharing on social media and to print.
- The Kringle Message (personalized video message from Santa): For $24.99, families can upgrade their experience with a personalized, pre-recorded video message from Santa; no scheduling necessary during the busy holiday season! This package also includes access to The Kringle Pic virtual photo booth with a downloadable photo, and a printable official “Nice List” certificate.
- The Kringle Mingle (interactive video call with Santa): For $29.99, families can chat with Santa, share wish lists and more through a 5-minute interactive video call. Families will have access to The Kringle Pic virtual photo booth and receive a downloadable photo, a commemorative screenshot of the video call with Santa and a printable official “Nice List” certificate.
- Christmas Eve Prep Pack: Set the scene for Christmas Eve with this package! At $64.99, families can receive a Christmas-themed activity pack via mail, which includes a festive cookie plate, milk jug, Santa notepad and a children’s Christmas Paint By Sticker book (this option does not include a virtual visit or photo with Santa).
- Commemorative Holiday 2020 Ornament: Trim the tree with an ornament depicting Santa on his video calls for $9.99
Sessions are expected to fill up and can be pre-booked now.
Corporations can also reserve time with Santa for their employees and their families. With the North Pole visits being virtual, long-distance relatives and friends can join in on the experience, too. For these full-day reservations, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
