Have a High-tech Holiday with Santa HQ at Los Cerritos Center

Disclaimer: We were invited to check out the Santa HQ Welcome Party, a free event open to the public. We did receive a complimentary photo with the big guy as a thank you. No other compensation was received, and all thoughts and opinions are the author’s.


Los Cerritos Center is bringing a special twist to your typical mall Santa. Everything is upgraded these days, why can’t Santa’s HQ be too?

Upon arriving at Santa HQ, you can get scanned by the “Naughty or Nice O’Meter” to find out where you land on the infamous list.


Then it’s into the North Pole Observatory to experience Elf-Ray Vision and watch the building come to life!


Santa’s helpers show the kids how to use the special tablets to interact with different spots around Santa’s HQ, including an amazing view of the North Pole sky on the observatory ceiling!


Outside of the observatory there’s a selfie station, too. Grab an impromptu family pic in front of the fun Santa HQ background.


And if you’re lucky, you might even get the Big Guy himself to jump in on your selfie.


Are your holidays hectic? You can make an appointment to see Santa to save time, with advance purchase of your photo package. (Look for special discount days to save time and money!)

Santa HQ is open 7 days a week at Los Cerritos Center from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. and is located in the Main Court next to Forever 21. For more info, visit the Santa HQ website!
