The North Pole Experience
It's a one-of-a-kind Christmas adventure and the only place in the U.S. that brings an interactive North Pole to life. Runs Nov. 23-Dec. 27 in Flagstaff. North Pole Experience (NPX), Santa's Workshop in Flagstaff will open the doors of the brand-new 8,500-square-foot workshop for hundreds of families from Arizona and around the world. The adventure begins at the Little America Hotel in Flagstaff, which is decked out in millions of lights after the lighting ceremony on Nov. 24. Families will be guided by their trolley elf and ride down through the magic portal to the workshop. As they pass through the portal, Christmas music rings, lights flash and before they know it, they have reached the North Pole. Children and parents are then guided off the trolley and in front of Santa's massive workshop doors where they perform a special knock for the elves. Once inside the workshop they will experience Santa's Toy Hall of Fame, an interactive experience making toys with Santa's elves, snowman soup and cookies inside Santa's bakery, class time inside Elf University, Santa's top-secret 'Area 47' Sleigh Hanger, which features his famous sleigh designed with some of the most advanced technology in the world including runway lights and radar systems, Santa's main 'Toy Factory Floor', complete with soaring ceilings and toy slides,  special one-on-one family time with Santa and family photos, and topped off with a trolley ride back to Little America ending the evening with storytelling and cookies and milk with Mrs. Claus.   Single adult workshop tickets cost $55.00, and $49.00 for children, 18 months and up. All tickets for the North Pole Experience and meals can be purchased online at
