Take Flight… to the North Pole | Beginning November 13, 2020

Wisconsin Dells, WI: The new Take Flight Theater, at the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells, WI, will be showing THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Journey to the North Pole for the holiday season.

Last month we had the opportunity to visit the Take Flight Theater — and we are so excited to visit the North Pole this holiday season on their special adventure featuring The Polar Express: Journey to the North Pole.

The show will run from November 13-January 18. You will be able to climb aboard and embark on a journey of self-discovery that shows that the wonder of Santa never fades for those who truly believe.

Once participants are buckled into their seats, the doors to the theater swiftly rise and the seats surge forward, leaving guests’ feet dangling as they stare at an enormous domed movie screen. Artificial scents, wind and mist add to the sensation of flying.

*Please note, seating may be limited due to social distancing requirements as a result of COVID-19 precautions.

More Holiday Fun at the Wilderness

Adding to the holiday spirit, The Take Flight lobby and Wild Kids Club, located below the lobby, will be turned into a holiday wonderland with additional fun activities for kids to enjoy. There will be decorating Christmas cookies on Saturday, December 5, 12 and 19 from 1-2 pm. Plus, Santa will be onsite in the Camp Social Happy Camper Gift Shop from 9-11 am on December 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20 and 24.

Candy Cabin will have special holiday treats including special edition hand-dipped “Golden Ticket” chocolate bars. Inside the wrapper of each candy bar includes a winning prize with 1 of 5,000 chance to win a $250 Wilderness gift card. Other prizes include $100 in arcade credits and various arcade tickets redeemable at any of our Mega Arcades. Each chocolate bar is a winner.

At Camp Social’s Burger Bar they will also be serving up Hot Chocolate Bombs and Polar Express-o’s made with a shot of locally roasted expresso with Godiva white chocolate and peppermint blended in vanilla ice cream served with whipped cream, candy cane and snowflake sprinkles. An adult version of the drink can be made with Smirnoff Peppermint Twist and a light crème de cacao. And, Klondike Pizza Kitchen will be hosting an “All Aboard for the Polar Express Pizza Package” that includes a large Santa hat shaped pizza, an order of breadsticks, a 2 liter bottle of soda and a Polar Express dessert pizza topped with mini marshmallows, graham cracker pieces, chocolate chunks and crush candy canes.
