Play Hide-n-Seek with Elliott the Elf! Join the #WildElfChase on the Resort Dec. 22 - Dec. 24

Christmas is just days away and our favorite North Pole native, Elliott the Elf, is ready to play. Join the fun! If you're on the Resort, today through Wednesday, Monday, December 22 – Wednesday, December 24, play our #WildElfChase game of hide-and-seek with Elliott the Elf to win a special prize!

Each day, Elliott the Elf will be hiding out somewhere on the Resort making sure all the kids are behaving before Santa’s arrival. To play, solve the “riddle of the day” – available at Boardwalk Inn Check-In, Village Guest Services or Hudson’s Market – to figure out his hiding place.

When you find the 20” Elliott doll, snap a photo with him and share it with us on social media by tagging @wilddunesresort and #wildelfchase. Then, come by the Swim Center to redeem a prize. Elliott will be hiding out from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. in a different location each day.

Happy Hunting!
