Santa Photos

9 DEC 2021 - 24 DEC 2021
Level 1, opposite McDonalds

Capture the magic of Christmas by having your photo taken with Santa in his winter wonderland. 

The health and wellbeing of Santa, our staff and all the families who visit remains a priority this year and we have made the decision that walk-in visits to see Santa will not be available this Christmas.

Santa photos will be managed through our online booking system and we aim to accommodate as many famillies as we can while adhering to social distancing requirements and government guidelines. 

Things will look and operate differently this year for everyones safety. Please maintain social distancing from others and do not visit if you or your children are unwell. We ask for your support and understanding, while we do everything we can to make your Santa Photo experience magical and safe. No aggressive behaviour towards staff will be tolerated and you may be asked to leave. 

Should any changes to our Santa photos be required due to government guidelines changing, information will be updated on our website and any booked sessions will be contacted to advise of the change.

Photography requirements
The following has been put in place this year to ensure we can keep everyone safe and adhere to current government guidelines. We wish to make your experience as magical as possible, so please read the below before booking your photo to avoid disappointment on the day.
  • Santa will be required to wear a mask, even during the photo
  • Santa's helpers will all be wearing masks
  • Families visiting Santa, must wear a mask, even during the photo unless they are exempt (ie: Children under 12 years). Please don't be offended if we ask for proof of your exemption if you are over 12 years. 
  • Families will be socially distanced from Santa this year.
  • Our Winter Wonderland operates under the retail setting and as such, Vaccine Passes are not required for a photo.

Thank you for helping keep Christmas magical and safe this year. See you soon.

Santa's Gift
This year Centre City will be donating $1 for every booked photo session to Taranaki Cancer Society in lieu of gifts for children.
