Things to do in Tampa: Santa’s Flight Academy at International Plaza

Santa’s Flight Academy – November 8 – December 24, 2018

It’s Santa season! Santa’s Flight Academy, a one-of-a-kind, immersive experience, returns to International Plaza and Bay Street from November 8 through December 24. The holiday attraction merges the physical and digital to provide a personalized adventure for every child, and ends with a special visit with Santa.

Each ‘cadet’ will become an official member of the flight crew and receive a personalized Cadet Badge, try on a virtual flight suit, learn how to operate the sleigh, dance under magical lights and snowfall, and more!

Though not required, customers are highly encouraged to create flight crew badges in advance of a visit online or through the center’s mobile app (for iPhone/Android). Badges can also be created onsite at special Santa’s Flight Academy kiosks. (Reservations are not required to see Santa.)

Santa’s Flight Academy is free and a variety of photo packages are available for purchase, each will include a complimentary Lovepop card. Santa’s Express Lane passes may be purchased online to reserve a designated time for the visit.
