Fashion Outlets of Chicago is always the go to outlet mall for me. It’s packed with high-end and everyday stores and so many delish candy shops that any chocoholic will get their fix. This Christmas Fashion Outlets of Chicago is offering a top of the line Santa experience for you and your family. Santa HQ at Fashion Outlets of Chicago takes your typical Santa visit at the mall to a whole new interactive level.
Santa HQ was designed and created by HGTV and just like all HGTV makeovers Santa’s house has been modernized. Visitors can download the Elf-Ray Vision app on their smartphones. You can then locate the gears around Santa’s house and workshop and see what those mischievous little elves are up to in the workshop. You can also get a 3-D view of all of Santa’s toy blueprints.
Kids can also get scanned to find out if they are the naughty or nice list with the big guy. After they are scanned their name will appear on either the naughty or nice list. You’ll have to work hard and hurry to get on the nice list though if you are on the naughty list because Christmas is just around the corner.
The whole family can also take pictures of themselves with the Elfie Selfie app. The whole family will then be elfed and put into a cute little dance video you can email to yourself. It’s adorable!
What’s even better is that all of these fun activities above are free to do at Fashion Outlets of Chicago. You can make reservations for your family in advance at http://santa-hq.com/
Just like all mall Santas you can have your picture taken with the big guy and purchase a photo package. They have a special right now through December 8th where you can get a photo package for $34.99 now through Dec. 8. This package includes one 5×7, two 4x6s and 8 wallet-sized photos and digital downloads. This package increase to $39.99 from Dec. 9 through Dec. 24.
