This year I brought my grandaughter to Santa's Village. I was probably 50 years ago that I went there with my Father and Mother! Great Value for the dollar, especially season passes. Disney take note: You are allowed to bring in your own wagons, strollers, and picnic lunches!!

On Sunday, October 11, 2015, my husband and I took our great-granddaughter and grand niece to Santa's Azoosement Park. As usual, it was very pleasant, not overly crowded and just the right size. The really enjoyed themselves and only rode two rides (the boat that rocks back and forth and the drop ride - that is the only way I... More

My kids had a blast there with us. I liked the mix of old from Santa's Village when I was a kid and new with the zoo element for my kids.

It's a bit pricey but kids were off for Columbus day and I found a groupon and even got a refund when my friends bought their tickets so it brought it down a bit, but even with the groupon $68 for 4 is a bit of a stretch for what amounts to a petting zoo and carnival in a beautiful... More

This place is amazing. It truly has everything a kid could want. We went in September and there were no lines or crowd. My daughter loved the animals, rides and games. Her words were "this is the most wonderful place EVER". And she's been to Mexico, California, Punta Cana etc. So...

What I love about Santa's Village is that they not only have kiddie rides but they also have rides for adults and older children. What I like the MOST is that there are many rides where adults can ride WITH their younger child....not something you see everywhere. Lines weren't too long and the workers are friendly. One price gets you... More

A great place to take todlers and young kids. There are so many rides and animal exibits geared toward young kids. Can't say enough about how much fun my son had! So much so he felt asleep before we even left the parking lot. Everyone is very nice and the park is clean. You can bring a cooler with food... More

Do you have kids over the age of 8? Stay away! Unless your kids are not into the thrill rides of Great America, this could be for them, but at the same time it's just like a county fair but with a bigger price tag. The adults could get on the rides, but they are nothing exciting, even our 7... More

This park is very child friendly. It is clean and the staff are very polite. The rides are great for children 2- adult. We love that our kids can go on a majority of the rides by themselves (2 and 4 years old). The park definitely caters to the younger kids, which makes it much more enjoyable than attending a...

We live in West Dundee, so we have a membership here. It is always clean, the staff is very friendly and the rides are fantastic especially for the 3-6 year old set (even though we always see older kids there having fun as well). You can bring your own food in or there is food available. It usually takes us... More
