This Christmas you won’t only get to meet Santa Claus, but also ride his sleigh across Malta.

The Point Shopping Mall is inviting Christmas shoppers to virtually fly through the clear night skies using an advanced Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset, and discover the beauty of the Maltese landscapes from Santa’s sleigh. 

“This year we will be taking the traditional photo with Santa to a whole new level. Children will not only meet and greet Santa at the mall, but get to fly his sleigh over an artistic impression of Malta.

"The Oculus Rift technology provides panoramic views, a chance to guide the reins in real time, control and gain speed as you desire for an entire three-minute ride in the sky! This exclusive The Point Christmas experience will immerse you into a virtual world, as though it were real,” said Ilona Debattista Marketing Manager at The Point Shopping Mall. 

Besides the 4D experience, traditional Christmas carols and gold and silver decorations, The Point will be setting the mood for Christmas by giving away €200 worth of The Point shopping vouchers each Monday in December, as part of its winter Shop & Win lottery. 

“Our philosophy at The Point is not just focused on generating sales. We like to think about the entire customer experience, especially during the Christmas season. It’s a magical time for us all, where we look forward to spending time with our friends and families. This is ultimately our focus and we tried to create the ideal place for all shoppers to do so.” she added. 

Christmas at The Point will be celebrated between December 5 to 26.
