Everything you need to know

To ensure your family has the most magical experience with Santa at Gateway:

  • To avoid line-ups and respect physical distancing measures, bookings are essential this year and spots must be pre-booked online here
  • We recommend no more than one family (of approximately 6-8) per booking to ensure each guest has more than enough time to capture the perfect photo
  • 1.5m physical distancing between guests and Santa will be practised
  • Get creative! Feel free to dress up festive (think matching PJs or ugly sweaters) and bring along props (favourite toy or handmade signs) to create your own unique memory with Santa
  • Tap & Go payments are preferred
  • Cleaning and sanitisation will take place between photos
  • Hand sanitiser will be provided for use before and after each session
  • Arrive a few minutes before your scheduled booking to avoid crowded areas
  • If at any time before your visit, you feel unwell, please stay home and rebook. Santa is here for a while and he’ll see you when you’re better!
