Visits with Santa!
Santa will be stopping by on Friday, December 11th and the 18th. The hours are 2:30 to 3:30 and 4:00 to 5:00. Santa will also be here every Saturday and Sunday in December from 11:00 to 12:30 and again from 1:30 to 3:00. Bring your Christmas list to remind Santa of what you were wishing for, since you have been so good this year.
To keep everyone safe this holiday season, we are asking that guests reserve a timeslot ticket for each child visiting Santa. Timed tickets are our way to spread families out throughout the day – there is no fee. If you already reserved your tickets and are no longer able to come, please call (610) 876-7116 so we can release your tickets for another family.
To be extra safe, Santa will be in an outdoor covered location and has brought his Noelziphone to Linvilla! The Noelziphone is a very special device (found only at Linvilla) that children can speak in to to give Santa their list of wishes while still staying safely distanced! Because Santa is outdoors, bundle up in your best holiday coats! There will be heaters and decorations to keep you warm and make your wait enjoyable. Remember to bring your camera or phone to capture the moment! Sadly, this year our elves won't be able to help by taking family photos.
We cannot let you sit on his lap,
During COVID we can’t have that!
But don't be sad- no reason to groan.
Linvilla has Santa's Noelziphone!
So, make a list and check it twice,
We'll make your visit very nice.
You'll just talk in to the Noelziphone
and Santa will hear your words alone.
We'll all stay healthy and cross our heart,
We can stay safely apart!
We are transforming the Garden Center in to a holiday wonderland with trees, lights, poinsettias, wreaths, toys, unique gifts, candles and timeless decorations! Come and experience Christmas Around the Farm!
Timeslot Tickets FAQ:
"Why can I only put one or two tickets in my cart?"
If there is only an option for one or two tickets that means that time is almost full. If you require more tickets than are left just jump to a different time slot.
"What if I am running late?"
Tickets are our way to pulse people throughout the day to keep everyone safe. If you are running a few minutes behind no need to worry! If you have reserved the last time slot of the day you may need to consider coming another day if you cannot arrive on time.
"Can I just reserve tickets once I am there?"
To keep everyone safe and to help us control crowds we are asking that visitors reserve a timed ticket at home before you visit.

For those who are not familiar with Philly Waffle Cabin, these waffles are made from a yeast-raised dough (not batter), it has pearl sugar in it that caramelizes as you bake the waffle, making it sweet and with a subtle taste that is oh-so-good!
