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

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

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.
