What is the Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Holiday Journey in Arlington?
The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Holiday Journey in Arlington is a brand-new walk-thru immersive theater experience where you will be shrunken down to Elf size and go on a magical journey with Santa’s Scout Elves.
Created and designed specifically for the Choctaw Stadium in Arlington (formerly called the Globe Life Park), the experience will be staged along the open-air concourse of the ballpark.
Meet the Scout Elves as you embark on a quest to save Christmas, experience larger-than-life scenic and light installations and are immersed in an original story and soundscape brought to you by the creators of The Elf on the Shelf.
Before and after the show you can stroll through the Texas Christkindl Market where you can sweeten the season with holiday treats and gifts.
