I used to take my kids here about 25 years ago, and now I am taking my grandchildren. The place was sold a few years ago, but it has reopened as an "azoosement" park. The addition of animals is surprisingly good. The usual barnyard animals, but their animal shows were fun and different, featuring some interesting animals not usually seen... More

I was brought here countless times as a kid and was so happy to bring my own kids here for the first time this summer. Santa was there to greet us at the door which was great... The park is clean and not overwhelming! There is still a lot of construction and improvements going on- but still a pleasant family... More

We had a fun time at the park with our 2 young children. The fun house, old fashioned car ride and fire truck were enjoyed by our group. The only negative is that they charge the same amount for parents to enter the park and in our case, we only went on about 1/2 of the rides as our kids... More

We had a nice time. Our 3 1/2 year old enjoyed most of the rides. The food was priced a little high for our liking ($6.00 for a floor less brat). You are allowed to bring you own snacks. There were several day camps at the park on the day we visited which made for longer lines and waits. The... More

I love this park. It is much more reasonable then taking your children to festivals that charge $3 to $4 per ride. Most rides can accommodate preschoolers. The rides are safe. The zoo is wonderful. Restrooms are well kept and clean. I can't say enough. Don't hesitate to go.

My niece's had alot of fun. It's a great place for smaller children since the park is geared mostly for them. There are rides for the older kids to get on, but not many. The park is a bit on the smaller size but they have a section with farm animals. In my opinion, I don't think it's worth the... More

We had our 7 and 4 year old g'kids for three days and needed an all-day activity to keep them engaged and wear them out. What a happy surprise Santa's Village (and petting zoo)) was! The 4 year old was able to excitedly do every ride but one, and the lively 7 year old boy especially loved the more difficult... More

Many rides for toddlers on up to about age 8. An arcade with kid-friendly carnival games. The young people working there are all friendly and helpful. Very service oriented. Lots of animals that the kids can feed and pet. Very docile. There are lots of big trees giving abundant shade in between rides and attractions. You can bring a cooler... More

It was a perfect day today( July 28) weather-wise.Sunny, Upper 70's , no humidity and a few people. Trips to Santa's Village (also called Azoosment Park) have long been a family tradition. My kids had a very nice day. I will have to find my son something else to do for fun because he will be too old ( he... More
