The Chalet in Cleveland Metroparks Mill Stream Run Reservation is the place to be for holiday cheer when Santa visits for a special breakfast from 8-11 a.m. on Sunday, December 14.
Families have two packages to choose from, a holiday crafters ticket at $18 per person or a toboggan time ticket at $25 per person. Both options include a delicious pancake breakfast (served from 8-9:30 a.m.) including sausage, pastries, cereal, coffee, juice and milk, a visit from Santa during breakfast, a holiday craft to take home, face painting and a winter-themed photo booth picture.
The toboggan time ticket also includes unlimited rides on the Chalet's toboggan chutes from 8-11 a.m. All toboggan riders must be 42 inches or taller and must wear gloves or mittens to ride. Riders plunge 70 feet down this one-of-a-kind ride - the only public toboggan chutes in Ohio. Toboggans can reach speeds up to 50 mph depending upon the weather conditions (the refrigerated ice chutes can operate with or without snow)! The Chalet also features two fireplaces, a large-screen TV, indoor restrooms and a loft with video games.
Reservations are required for Breakfast with Santa at the Chalet. To purchase tickets, call (440) 572-9990. Breakfast with Santa is a rain or shine event.
Santa returns to the Chalet for a holiday kick-off party from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, December 19. Celebrate the spirit of the season by bringing a non-perishable food item to be donated to a local food bank or animal shelter and receive a $1 discount off the purchase of a toboggan admission, and receive an ornament to place on the Chalet's community holiday tree. Each additional food item donated will earn guests the chance to win prizes and other discounts. (Guests must be present to win prizes. Toboggan chutes will stay open until 10:30 p.m.)
