DANIELS (WOAY)- The Resort at Glade Springs is pleased to host “Santa’s Christmas Adventure” for the fifth consecutive year. This interactive holiday experience for children and families is being offered to the public on December 1, 2, 8, 9, 15 and 16 at The Resort at Glade Springs, located at 255 Resort Drive in Daniels, West Virginia. This event is proudly sponsored by presenting sponsor The UPS Store of Beckley and by WCIR 103.7-FM and Mountaineer Automotive.
“Each year, we strive to bring a child’s Christmas fantasy to life” says Ashley Long, Creative Director of the Resort at Glade Springs, “and we bring the whole North Pole experience here for children and their families to immerse themselves in, with animatronics, moving set pieces and switches and buttons you can push to create magical effects, as well as interactive games. Participants will have the opportunity to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, experience the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in a giant walkthrough storybook, then meet and work with Santa’s elves. You’ll get to sample Mrs. Claus’s delicious cookies and attend a school for Santa’s elves, after which you will be awarded your own Elf Diploma!”
“We wanted to give children and their families more interactive experiences this year,” continues Long. “So, this year, we’ve partnered with Magical Memories LLC of Buckhannon, West Virginia to bring a different set of children’s favorite TV and movie characters for special Meet-And-Greetopportunities each night, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Peppa Pig and Doc McStuffins, the Paw Patrol and more!”
The Resort is also offering two Resort Packages this year: a one-night ‘Santa’s Adventure Package’ which includes a deeply-discounted room with breakfast and a “Passport to the North Pole” for Santa’s adventure, and a two-night ‘Santa’s Weekend Adventure’ which includes everything in the Santa’s Adventure Package along with a weekend packed full of fun holiday activities for children and their families. As in previous years, The Resort at Glade Springs will donate a portion of each Santa’s Christmas Adventure ticket proceeds to Toys For Tots of Southern West Virginia, to provide toys, books and other gifts to less fortunate children.
