Mapleview Centre is hosting an immersive, interactive holiday experience for parents and kids alike.

The North Star Experience is described as a magical, 3D projection experience through light and sound.

Once boarding the specially-designed train car, you’ll be immersed in a whole new world. The virtual experience will take visitors to the Canadian wilderness, where they’ll be able to spot many animals.

When the sun sets and the moon rises, spirit animals will come out to play while they guide you and the North Star through a winter wonderland.

Mountains, valleys, villages, oceans flash by as you make your way further and further North, all with the magnificent background of the Northern Lights.

When you disembark from the North Star, you’ll discover 3D Santa in his natural element, the North Pole, where you can capture the memory by taking a photo with your own device.

There is a small fee to book your passage on Christmas event. All proceeds will be donated to Qajuqturvik Community Food Centre, a non-profit organization that strives to strengthen health, belonging and food sovereignty in Iqaluit utilizing the power of tradition and community.

Qajuqturvik improves access to good food by supporting local harvesting, preparation, education, training, and advocacy.

The North Star Experience is located on the upper level of Mapleview Centre, beside Bath & Body Works.

The event will be following all COVID-19 safety regulations. Masks are mandatory and the train will be thoroughly cleaned between showings.
