Merry Mischief at Mall of America®

Elf-Guided Interactive Tour + Santa Visit

Candy Cane Institute

Santa's top team of elves are busy setting up the Candy Cane Institute at Mall of America® to find the true meaning of the holiday season, but they won't be able to do it without you!

This year, join Santa's crew at MOA® to find out what merry mischief the elves are getting into. They'll take families with kids of all ages on an interactive tour through the Candy Cane Institute with a special visit with Santa along the way.

Tickets to Candy Cane Institute include a 10–15 minute elf-guided interactive tour and a visit with Santa. Reservations are not required. A ticket is required for each Candy Cane Institute visitor. Final group will be admitted 15 minutes prior to close. Candy Cane Institute will close midday for 30 minutes so Santa can feed the reindeer.

Advance ticket purchases are sold out. A limited quantity of tickets are available for purchase at Candy Cane Institute, located on Level 1 near the North Entrance.
