Now a staple in the region’s Yuletide calendar, the Santa on the Roof experience begins with a ride in Santa’s Express Elevator to the top of the store.

From there, guests will be greeted by Santa’s singing reindeer, before jumping inside a safely parked elf-mobile, ready to explore Santa’s magical Cabin and meet Father Christmas.
