Experience Adventure to Santa at South Bay Galleria and Victoria Gardens

Take the family to Adventure to Santa at South Bay Galleria in Redondo Beach or Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga for a sleigh ride to the North Pole with Shrek and his friends. Enjoy some fun interactive activities along the way before meeting the real Santa Claus for keepsake photos. I say real because he looks like the real deal.


disclosure: I was invited for a media preview.

I took the two kids last Friday to South Bay Galleria to experience Adventure to Santa for the very first time. Created by DreamWorks DreamPlace, they will open today, November 7. Reservations are now open for this unique attraction and can be made by visiting South Bay Galleria’s website or Victoria Gardens’ website.

Photo packages and booking a reservation can be done online. Prices range from $35 – $75 per family. Guests can also make reservations in person. No need to line up like other pictures with Santa at other malls as you’ll be put on a schedule. If you arrive early, you can lounge at the VIP room to wait for your turn.

Check out our pictures below from our fun and memorable experience at Adventure to Santa at South Bay Galleria in Redondo Beach. I highly recommend it, you’re gonna love the virtual sleigh ride the most.
