For what it is, this is an excellent way to spend the day with our 6 grandchildren. Most rides are probably more appropriate for kids under 10.-- but older kids probably could enjoy with younger siblings. Lines were very short. I have seen people write "over-priced carnival rides." -- Have you been to a carnival lately? It is $2 or... More

My daughter's school had a day here last summer... it was a great day as the lines weren't long and the kids could try whatever rides they wanted. But there was a little of everything... a carousel, cars to drive, carnival rides, horse rides, hay rides, animals to pet, and standard fair food to eat. It's not Six Flags but... More

Enjoy some vintage rides here and a wonderful petting zoo. This place is great for kids under ten. Prices are reasonable, staff is friendly and the ground are well kept. We love to take our grandkids here. Fun for the whole family!

My parents had taken me to this place as a child and when it still had 2 other parks with it. Santa's Village reminds me of a carnival or county fair with less food vendors and a hint of Christmas theme thrown in. It is by no means a Christmas wonderland but most of the rides are for children about... More

We went again for or yearly visit with our grandson and again another wonderful time. They have added a few new things to do which was good, the fun house was not open that day which he missed also the larger coaster still was'nt open. The bumper cars was his favorite this year and of course the Santa is one... More

We had a groupon for half off so I don't feel too bad it wasn't what I expected! My daughter was bummed the "big" roller coaster was not up and running yet (should have checked prior). It was pretty busy and the lines were uncontrolled and too long. Multiple times we had people budge because of no order to lines.... More

Love this place! We have SIX grandchildren under the age of four! They all love this place! Of course, we need to take a couple parents (our grown kids) along, but this wonderful attraction makes a great field trip for the little kiddies. Prices are reasonable, washroom facilities are clean, the grounds are kept up, and the people working there... More

My wife and I had visited Santa's Village in October 2014. It is a very nice, small amusement park. I had never been there previously, but from what my wife said, it has not changed much in 20+ years. The prices for everything are considerably cheaper than a Six Flags Great America (which is nice), but the size is far... More

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
