SOUTH BAY GALLERIA BRINGS A NEW MAGICAL EXPERIENCE
TO GREATER LOS ANGELES;

ADVENTURE TO SANTA - A DREAMWORKS DREAMPLACE OPENS NOVEMBER 7

SOUTH BAY, Calif., (October 1, 2015) – Families throughout Greater Los Angeles will have a unique opportunity this winter.  South Bay Galleria has announced that Adventure to Santa – a DreamWorks DreamPlace will open on November 7, offering guests an unforgettable journey inspired by a child’s most memorable experience:  meeting Santa Claus. 

Reservations are now open for this unique attraction, and can be made by visiting www.SouthBayGalleria.com.

“The magic of this special season is about to begin,” says Sher Haddon, Marketing Manager at South Bay Galleria.  “By bringing this incredible experience to South Bay Galleria, we are giving our guests a chance to take part in a virtual journey created by one of the most innovative names in the global entertainment industry.”

Adventure to Santa - A DreamWorks DreamPlace is a first-of-its-kind holiday experience that starts with Shrek, ends with Santa, and seamlessly blends storytelling with cutting-edge technology.

The attraction features a virtual sleigh ride, which transports guests to the North Pole with the help of Shrek and his friends.  Children and parents also enjoy interactive activities along the way, culminating in a grand finale celebration that includes meeting Mr. Claus himself, and of course snapping a few keepsake photos.

“The tradition of meeting Santa at a local shopping center is an experience that is cherished by families around the world,” continues Haddon.  “With this new experience, we are elevating that tradition and delivering a new way for families in the Greater LA area to make their visit to our center a personal one.”

Photo packages can be pre-purchased by visiting www.SouthBayGalleria.com and booking a reservation. Prices range from $35 - $75 per family. Guests can also make reservations in person by visiting Adventure to Santa -A DreamWorks DreamPlace at South Bay Galleria.
