Santa’s Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops Atlanta (FREE)

Bass Pro Shops Santa’s Wonderland is a fabulous in-store extravaganza of activities for kids (and adults). Best part, it’s allbass-pro-shops-santas-wonderland FREE (well of course you’ll pick up SOME gift while you’re there.)

The festivities kick on Saturday, Nov. 12th at 5 pm with a magical tree lighting, the arrival of Santa, the unveiling of Santa’s Wonderland, carolers, $25 Bass Pro Shop gift card giveaways every half hour, plus free crafts, cookies and McStevens hot chocolate.

If you can’t make it to the opening, don’t worry Bass Pro Shops Santa’s Wonderland goes through December 24 with lots of games and activities, crafts, and free photos with Santa. Note that all activities are NOT available on all days, so check before you go. Games and activities include slot racing, soft gun arcade, remote control trucks, Red Ryder Laser Arcade (can you still shoot your eye out with a laser gun?) and more. I’d never get my kids out of there.

If you don’t want to wait in line to see Santa, no worries; at Bass Pro Shops, if Santa is busy with photos and the line requires a wait longer than 30 minutes, find one of the Bass Pro Shop elves and they’ll give you a Bass Pass. The pass allows you to come back at an appointed time.

I didn’t realize Bass Pro Shops was open ON Thanksgiving; could be a fun, inexpensive “get the kids out of the house with those cousins that are way too rowdy” idea.

    Where is the Bass Pro Shop? The link says: …. Sorry, this page is not currently available!

  2. The article gets one detail wrong – the Santa’s Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops’ stores opens at 5PM on November 12, 2016. Nov 14 was last year’s date. It’s open through 24 December. Great info otherwise – and during the week there are incentives to visit when lines are shorter

      There is also one in Macon and Savannah… Macon might be closer to you. I haven’t heard about the store there but my guess is that they are doing it too. I’d give them a call. 🙂
