“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… everywhere you go!” Why yes, Bing Crosby, yes it is! And we here at Bass Pro Shops in Mesa, AZ are no exception! Slowly but surely our store has been adding all of its holiday trimmings in anticipation for Santa’s Wonderland. With it kicking into gear, I figured a yuletide blog might help spread some holiday cheer!
Santa’s Wonderland is a completely FREE and FAMILY FRIENDLY event we hold each year at our store. Most of our Tracker Boats disappear and the North Pole pops up! We have all sorts of fun activities for everyone to enjoy during the event. Those activities include: Wildlife Carousel, Crafts, Coloring Pages, Letters to Santa, R/C Slot Car Racing, R/C Truck Romping, R/C Train, Shooting Gallery, Zing Toy Arcade and more! Some activities are subject to certain time frames and availability. You can always call us to check on specifics, so put this number down into your phone: 602-606-5600.
The biggest attraction though is the big man in the red suit! FREE pictures with Santa! Kids and families have a chance to see Santa, maybe add another gift to their wish list and get a FREE picture with Santa. You can also purchase photo-packages that can be printed off in-store as well! I strongly urge you to come in earlier than later and to always call ahead to see how busy it is. If it gets busy, we go to the Bass Pass system. What is a Bass Pass? The big guns at corporate do a great job at explaining it, so…
“If the photo line gets above a 30 minute wait, our convenient Bass Pass system will help reduce your wait time. A Bass Pass provides a designated time during the day to return to Santa’s Wonderland® for your photo with Santa.
Once you have a Bass Pass, you have the freedom to explore the store while waiting in a virtual line until your designated Bass Pass return time arrives. When it’s time to return, line up and get ready to share your Christmas wishes with good ole St. Nick. This is why you may not see long lines in Santa’s Wonderland, because our Bass Pass system is in place with several people ahead of you in their own virtual line.
Bass Passes are available on a first come, first served basis each day. Once they’re gone, they’re gone! For your convenience, Mondays-Thursdays are typically days with shorter wait times to see Santa.”
The later you wait into the season to take your photos, the less likely your chances become. I have seen it where by 11AM we are already handing out Bass Passes for the 5PM slot! Check out the chart below for times for Pictures and Crafts.
