AddThis Social Bookmark Button

As the holiday season marches upon us - I had the opportunity to speak with Santa's Ambassador, Scott Pace, who is hard at work in Flagstaff, AZ where he, along with his team of Elf University graduates are preparing a one of a kind gathering that includes a special appearances from Santa as he prepares for his annual round the world blast.


A family friendly destination, The North Pole Experience which is scheduled to begin shuttling visitors through the magical portal November 21, 2014, is the brain child of CEO and Founder of North Pole Experience, Scott Pace and his gift of imagination.

Guests are treated to a special visit to Area 47, just outside Area 51, home to the Secret Sleigh Hanger and mission control. Picked up at 
Little America Hotel, the official trolley departure station, guests are taken through the secret portal to the North Pole Experience (NPX) – Home of Santa’s Workshop and where Santa begins his annual magical trip around the world.

This one of a kind experience is an interactive adventure where families can tour Santa’s Sleigh Hanger, one of the two most top secret areas in Santa’s Workshop, and see Santa's Toy Hall of Fame, build toys with the elves in Santa's Toy Building Workshop, eat sugar cookies and drink snowman soup at Mrs. Claus’ Bakery, attend Elf University and so much more.

Begin the holiday season with Little America Hotel’s 20th annual lighting ceremony where the 500-acre property puts on the best display of Christmas lights in Arizona and arguably the best in the surrounding states.

Little America Hotel, Flagstaff, a boutique luxury property, has partnered with Pace and his North Pole Experience for the past two years.

Offering an encounter of rustic luxury nestled on 500 acres Little America is set against a backdrop of lush mountain landscaping. At 7,000 feet elevation, the grounds are expected to have a dusting of snow to add to the yuletide season.

On board with Santa and the Claus Family, Scott Pace is dedicated to bringing the joy of the holiday season to every person regardless of age and believes that every person who participates in the North Pole Experience will find something, see something that will take them back to the holidays they remember.

The Holiday Lights event, a gift from Little America Hotel, begins November 21, 2014 in Flagstaff with the annual lighting ceremony and continues through the end of December with the Holiday Lights remaining on through the New Year. 
The North Pole Experience, in association with Little America Hotel, begins November 21, 2014 and run through December 27, 2014.
