SHORT HILLS, NJ - Waiting in line to see Santa has never been more fun as children and adults alike can immerse themselves in the interactive Flight Academy experience at The Mall at Short Hills. After creating personalized crew badges, children are greeted by name throughout their journey to become a member of Santa's flight crew.

Partnering with one of three of Santa's elves, Sleigh Mechanic George, Flight Director Sparkle or Reindeer Caretaker Flash each child will help ready Santa’s sleigh so he can deliver presents to children around the world. After getting fitted with their virtual flight suit, children pass through a sled staging area where they oversee the loading of the presents, check different route options for the big flight and even monitor the radar for any problematic weather patterns. 

At the end of the adventure, each child will step inside of a 22-foot-tall sleigh for an enchanted snowfall dance party with the elves before meeting Santa. Children will also receive a special gift from Santa to personally thank them for heroically saving the day.
