Went to Santas Village today for the first time in 30 years and I couldn't be happier. You need to have the correct expectations... It is meant to be a carnival/petting zoo type amusement park for kids under the age of 7 or 8. It is perfect for preschoolers because unlike Great America they are not overwhelmed or constantly told... More

I truly enjoyed this unique experience which combines great food, rides and animal exhibits. I was there with nine other family members ranging in age from grandparents to toddlers. We all had a great time and everyone hated to end the day and return home. It's was a blast and the children really enjoyed seeing Santa Claus and taking pictures... More

We took my daughter here for her birthday turning 9 and she loved it! Plus, the rest of the family...my husband, my two other daughters 3yrs & 1yr and myself had a great time! The only thing that really upset us was we bought two different ICEE/slushies and there was chopped up bug pieces in both of them...it was so... More

Granpa, Grandma, Daughter and two grandkids - boy 6, girl 8 visited Santa's Village in late August, 2014. Senior discounts, plus we printed out $4 off coupons from Santa's Village Website. All ages, but mostly younger kids thru maybe 10 years old were there. The great thing about it was that the rides and amusements were all free. Also, on... More

Kids had a blast. $20 a person, you don't have to pay for any rides. I didn't like the petting zoo at all.

Santa's Village is the place to take the youngsters - probably best between 4 years old and 10 to 12. One admission price gets you on all rides and as many times as you want. Taking our 4 through 6 year old grandchildren is an adventure they truly love. The park is very clean and very well maintained. And they... More

We took our 2 and 4 yr old Aug 16th and they loved it! Cost was not bad at all with $20 a person for 3 and over. You don't have to pay for any rides and we could even go on a few with them. They loved feeding the incredibly friendly animals in the barn yard and in the... More

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
