Magical Morning: A Sensory-Friendly Santa Experience

Every child deserves to experience the magic of Santa in a setting tailored to their needs. The NASCAR Hall of Fame has teamed up with Autism Charlotte to create Magical Morning, a sensory-friendly event for families living with autism or other special needs.

The NASCAR Hall of Fame elves will create an approachable holiday environment where a kid can be themselves. Each child will have the opportunity to meet jolly old St. Nick in an atmosphere that is calming and quiet. No loud music or flashing lights here. Plus with pre-scheduled Santa times, there is little to no wait. This event also includes crafts and the opportunity to watch a Christmas movie in our theatre with the lights up and the sound down.

Sunday, December 17
8 a.m. - Noon

One ticket covers admission for your whole family so you can bring your entire household.


After purchasing a ticket, you will receive a separate email to select a Santa timeslot*. While we will make every attempt to stay on schedule, it is not our intention to rush any family. If a child needs additional time to warm up to Santa, we will provide that time. Santa appointments are an attempt at preventing a long line that might not be ideal for children with special needs.
