For Those Receiving a Lump of Coal This Christmas

True to the holiday ditty, Santa’s gonna find out who’s naughty and nice. And he’s going to reward (punish?) the naughty “children” by consigning them to an evening at Santa’s Secret in New York.

Described on its website as “the best elfing holiday experience this side of the North Pole” (ho, ho, ho!), the event sounds like a cross between a college frat party and an escape room. Visitors work their way through eight immersive installations, encountering attractions such as gingerbread girls and a living snow globe as they progress. Ultimately they arrive at Santa’s secret lair — “a vintage speakeasy-style room featuring some naughty performances,” a live band, and Christmas-themed cocktails.

Tickets, which range from $58 (for general seating) to $157 (for the “VIP Champagne Loveseat”), may be purchased here.

The event lasts approximately two hours.

Santa’s Secret in New York, Hudson Yards Public Square and Gardens (350 Eleventh Avenue at Hudson Blvd. East).
