HGTV’S ‘Santa HQ’ Is Coming To Queens Center!

Santa Claus is all about the experience, and this year Queens Center is again partnering with HGTV to present the incomparable, immersive “Santa HQ.” Families are invited to explore the wonder of Santa in the digital age. Exciting interactive technology transforms and customizes the experience.

HGTV Santa HQ guests can customize their individual experience by using augmented reality to view the new Elf Academy in magical ways. New this year, visitors can use the workshop’s Magic Mirror to transform into one of Santa’s elves. Guests can virtually change their elf’s outfits, create customized Elf Academy ID collector cards at the Elf ID station, explore Santa’s Observatory using ELF-RAY Vision and test out the Naughty O’ Nice Meter. Families can continue their adventure with a custom photo opportunity and an in-person visit with Santa inside his modernized sleigh.

Santa HQ is open from November 9 through December 24 and is located on Level 2, Center Court.

To make it easy, guests can make reservations starting now with the “Man Of The Hour” to spend less time in line. Visit: www.santa-hq.com for more information. Photo packages are available starting at $39.99.

Shoppers also are invited to bring in an unwrapped toy and participate in Help Through Holiday Giving. Queens Center hopes to collect and donate over 1,000 toys to local Queens charities serving families and children in need.

HGTV Santa HQ Holiday Parade is a highlight of the opening of HGTV Santa HQ that also includes live music, strolling entertainment, free crafts for kids, a selfie booth, formal ribbon-cutting, and more.
