Santa's Village is a staple in the history of our community! Something we're known for! Generations have taken their kids and grand kids there! It was closed for several years with most of the rides auctioned off. It was reopened about three years ago and is better than ever! It's focused on family fun, and is geared towards younger children.... More

I never went to the original Santa's Village as a kid, so I was excited when they revamped Santa's Village plus a zoo too. We love going. It's clean, nice employees that are helpful. Food is decently priced. Free parking which is great and tickets are a fair price for kids, but kinda steep for parents since they can only... More

We just visited Santa's village the other day and had a great time. The park was clean, the rides looked like new and our family had an excellent time. They look like they are working hard to make this a great place for the little ones. My son went on about 20 rides, it was a cold night and the... More

If you grew up in the Chicago area and remember going to Santa's Village as a child, the trip back is very worthwhile. The new owners did a wonderful job of restoring the village and rides. Prices are manageable for a family. I enjoyed seeing it again, as did my husband.

We went to Santa's Village Azoosement Park recently and we were very disappointed with the rides and small area there is to walk around. I know it was closed down for a few years and rides were sold but this is not what we expected.The animals were okay but not much of them. The bigger rides were closed until we... More

The whole experience was a great time for our grandchildren. The park as clean and landscape, but the food was a little overpriced. The rides are older carnival rides and they seem to be always working on them. Santa was great, the high light of our day. We loved his house, but it not open for too long. Overall a... More

This was our first visit. Our 2 year old enjoyed the park a great deal. There were about a dozen rides he could enjoy. There is a farmyard where the children can feed goats, sheep, etc. Fun for a little one. But, the rides are older and not much different from what you'd see at a neighborhood traveling carnival. The... More
