ZOOm with Santa

Add some magic to your holiday season with a live, personalized video chat with Santa. From the comfort of their own ho-ho-home, kids will go WILD for their very own chat with Jolly Old St. Nick!

ZOOms with Santa can be scheduled on weekends from November 20 - December 19 (not available December 4 and 5). Calls will last 7-8 minutes, depending on the number of children and questions for Santa. Your call will be recorded and emailed to you afterwards, so you'll have a lasting memory to keep and share on social media. You can even have friends and family join in on the call for some extra fun!

Price: $54.95

Please note:

  • After selecting your date, be sure to answer the participant questions to help personalize your experience.
  • If you have more than three children on the call, we recommend booking an extra timeslot to make sure each child has enough time to speak with Santa. 

Proceeds from ZOOm calls with Santa support the operation of Stone Zoo and our mission to protect and preserve the incredible biodiversity on our planet.


How do I get the zoom link?

We will email you the link the day after you book. If you book on a Friday you will get it no later than between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m. on Saturday. If you don’t receive it, please email or call 617-379-5184.

How long will the Zoom chat last?

Depending on the number of children, the call will last 7 – 8 minutes. If you have more than three children, we recommend booking extra time.

Am I allowed to share this link with friends and family to watch?

Yes, we encourage you to share the holiday spirit!

Why does Santa look familiar?

You may recognize Santa from Stone Zoo’s annual holiday light show ZooLights. Due to COVID health and safety measures, we're not able to accommodate Santa in person at ZooLights, so we're bringing him virtually to your home instead!
