***The schedule and caroling sheets will be printed and handed out on the day of as well. ***

 

Because we’re anticipating so many newbies again this year we’ve created this survival guide to help you have the most fun humanly possible and stay out of pitfalls and other trouble that you might not think about Santa. Even if you’ve been to every rampage here going back to 2003 please read this all because there’s a lot of information and tidbits in it.

Here in Las Vegas, our Santa Rampage grew out of Bam Bam’s ‘Strip Walks’ which were a bunch of happy freaks marauding up and down the strip going bar hopping. Man those were so much fun! Santa had been turned onto Santa during his time in Florida. When Santa moved here in 2003 Santa brought Santa with him. Our first Las Vegas Santa Rampage in December of 2003 had just SIX Santa’s. Now on a good night we’ve got well over a hundred Santas and we’re projecting almost 200 for this one!

WHAT IS SANTA RAMPAGE?
In essence Santa Rampage is a bunch of Santas dressed up in various holiday costumes singing naughty Christmas carols (that we will print and distribute) and going bar hopping. Gifts are given out to kids (with their parent’s permission of course) and adults, and numerous opportunities abound for merriment, mischief, and mayhem. Our power comes from our numbers and our ‘sameness’. This is a flash mob, only we don’t sneak up on you; we walk right in your front door.

WHAT SANTA RAMPAGE IS NOT?
Santa Rampage is NOT A SPECTATOR EVENT!! DRESS UP OR STAY HOME, NO STREET CLOTHES. ALL participants are expected to be IN COSTUME. Putting a Santa hat on over street clothes is NOT acceptable. Santa is not a group of people to be studied, photographed or observed. Santa is not a support system for your dumb ass who can’t handle his/her alcohol. Please make no mistake; Santa WILL leave your happy ass to your fate if you get into trouble. 
Santa practices “The FOUR F’S”: 
1.DON’T FUCK WITH KIDS 
2.DON’T FUCK WITH COPS 
3.DON’T FUCK WITH HOTEL OR CASINO SECURITY 
4.DON’T FUCK WITH SANTA

THIS IS A 21+EVENT and is NOT appropriate for children or minors. Santa is going bar hopping and also into a topless bar. If that offends you (SNORT) then wait outside and fuck with the populace until the next departure time (see below). BRING YOUR ID SANTA.

WEAR GOOD STURDY BROKEN IN WALKING SHOES OR BOOTS, this is about 2 miles of walking mostly on concrete. Those 6” spiked Santa boots may LOOK cool at your house, but after a few blocks you’re feet are going to be crying.

BRING SOME SPENDING MONEY AND YOUR ID (again); even if you don’t drink alcohol or eat food you’re going to need a few bucks for a soda, snacks, smokes, or whatever. Plus we’re going into a working topless bar and these girls don’t work for free Santa. The management of that establishment is waiving our $20 cover and requesting that we all buy at least one drink or table dance. Most of our venues require IDs from every Santa so bring your ID Santa. (3rd time)

STAY TOGETHER AT ALL TIMES. While ‘No force on earth can stop a hundred Santa’s’ might be true, there’s a lot of forces that can stop one or two Santa’s, Santa. Remember, if you wander off and get into some sort of trouble, Santa will leave you.

* We have a schedule so that we can stay together in the mayhem that is Fremont St and so Santa can find Santa if Santa gets separated from Santa. So if anyone else tells you ‘we’re moving’ check your schedule first which every Santa will have. We will print these along with the lyrics and give them to you Santa.

DON’T MESS WITH THE COPS OR SECURITY! IF security asks us to leave WE LEAVE. Then we wait out front for the next departure time per our schedule (see schedule below).The best course of action is to stay in a tight group at all times. This isn’t always possible because of distractions like people taking photos with Santa etc and the size of this mob, but if we all make a conscious effort the whole thing works much better.

NO ONE IS IN CHARGE SANTA, STAY IN CHARACTER AT ALL TIMES SANTA. We know it’s tempting to break character and talk to those friendly gawking tourists from Idaho about ‘who we are and why we’re doing this” yeah? FUCK THAT

The answer to almost every question ever asked is, was, and always will be “SANTA”. Here are some examples of this, Santa:

Who are you guys?” We’re SANTA 
Why are you doing this?” Because I’m fucking SANTA (use of the word ‘fucking’ is entirely optional and based on local customs) 
Who is in charge here?” SANTA 
Why is that guy peeing in a flower pot?” Because he’s muthafuggin’ SANTA 
Who’s paying for all of this beer?” SANTA!

See a pattern here SANTA? YOU are not in charge and no one speaks for Santa except motherfucking Santa, Santa. This takes a little practice to get into for most people, but here in this venue, you are not YOU, you are SANTA, SANTA.

MOVING: 10 MINUTES before we leave a venue we will start telling all the Santas “10 minutes”. Please pass it on to the Santas all around you. This helps Santa be ready to move and ensure Santa stays together. The words ‘SANTA HOOOOOOOO’ bellowed through the bullhorn means we’re moving NOW.

EAT DINNER and HYDRATE before Santa Rampage.

* ONE KEY TO LAS VEGAS SANTA RAMPAGES is ‘efficiency of movement’. GET IN, GET YOUR DRINK OR GO PEE, AND GET READY TO MOVE. Don’t make this location your camp, before too long we’re all moving again. We don’t stay in any one location and that’s part of the fun of Santa Rampage.

* About the Ziplines; Boulder City Ziplines has installed a Zipline on Fremont St that flies over the crowd starting down by Mickey Finns to up around Binions. While you may be tempted to go do this, please be aware of the wait times involved. (usually 1-2 hours). It costs $20 and Santa will not wait for you either aerial Santa. However this Santa thinks a picture from the zipline looking down at Santa would be cool if Santa does go do this, hint hint.

ROOMS ROOMS ROOMS!
Over the past couple of years, getting a room for SANTA RAMPAGE has become popular with many Santa’s Santa. It makes sense and certainly prevents DUI’s or worse, Santa.
