Santa’s Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops WILL be open over the Thanksgiving holidays.
Be sure to check the official schedule for your store for store hours, craft hours and more information.
Santa’s Thanksgiving/Black Friday schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, November 27th: 10am-8pm
Thursday, November 28th (Thanksgiving): 10am – 5pm
Friday, November 29th: 1pm – 8pm
Of course, everyone wants to see the jolly guy in red and Bass Pro Shops tries to make it as headache free as possible.
Here is the advice my local Bass Pro Shops posted on Facebook to help you score face time with the big guy while avoiding meltdowns from the kiddos:
HOW TO SEE SANTA
First, let us say that a photo with Santa at Bass Pro Shops is a special annual event. Thousands of families participate in this event each year and, with a little pre-planning, your visit to Santa’s Wonderland will provide you and your family with a lifetime of wonderful memories. Here are a few tips to make your Santa’s Wonderland experience a magical time.
Since Bass Passes go very quickly we advise that you arrive early on the day you want a photo taken with Santa. The Bass Pass Ticket Depot will be open 30 minutes prior to Santa’s official arrival that day and a Bass Pass line usually forms earlier than that.
If you are traveling a long distance and are only able to visit Santa’s Wonderland on a Saturday or Sunday, please consider arriving here as early in the day as you can as we are unable to put Bass Passes on hold. Again, pre-planning is key in making this a magical experience for you and your family.
