We like this place a lot! It's kinda small and not as much as you'd think but the popcorn and hot chocolate is great and the staff is out of this world friendly! Don't expect a big high priced uptown candy shop because this isn't that. Expect nice friendly faces and some good candy along with a very cute building.... More

Be sure to stop in for a Frozen Hot Chocolate after a long day at Holiday World! We really enjoyed it. They also offer homemade fudges and candies, along with a ton of other candy selections. Children will enjoy Santa's Candy Castle.

The focus in July is on their homemade fudge, frozen hot chocolate, and candies from the past. Don't expect Christmas candy this time of year. I'll admit I was expecting it and was a little disappointed there was none. After all, we were celebrating Christmas in July! The selection of old time candy was pretty big, though, and I was...

We stopped by the castle on May, so it wasn't exactly the height of the x-mas season. It was still fun. They have homemade fudge and candy. They also have a number of novelty items for sale (my favorite was the Christmas Story section). It was fun to drink hot cocoa and walk around. They have about two dozen types... More

Santa's Candy Castle is in my opinion is by far the greatest place. We love going there. Living only 30 minutes away helps also. If we have out of town guests & the castle is open, we take them down. You MUST go on a sat-nite in dec for the chestnut roast. It's done over an open fire like in... More

First off, if you are expecting some massive castle full of candy - don't bother. This place is more of a castle in the backyard. It's absolutely adorable and is a lot of fun! You walk in and see a some regular branded candy such as jelly belly beans, pez candies, and so forth. Then you will see holiday hats... More

Our family traveled to Santa Claus from KY to see this great light display, fun town, and wonderful Candy Castle, but we were disappointed. The only good part of the trip was the lights at Rudolph Lake Campground. We were highly disappointed in the Candy Castle. Yes, the outside looks somewhat like a castle, but nothing fabulous. We actually thought... More

We are very sorry that your visit did not meet your expectations. Although the historic castle isn't a huge all-day attraction, we do truly strive to make each and every guest's visit an enjoyable one. The castle is a quaint (ie, not huge) Depression-era attraction that was recently restored, so we are certainly not the world's largest candy shop. However,... More

Santa's Candy Castle wasn't what we expected. Not much candy! It was interesting and we made the best of it, but as a stand alone attraction...not much there. We did buy some candy while there. I did not care for the candy, but my son did...guess it is a matter of taste.

The name of the place is Santa's Candy Castle. Only the castle part is accurate. Wife and I walked in and out in 10 minutes. Would have taken less, but there were some people in the way. They have very little candy and even less of it that pertains to Christmas. For example, we didn't see a single candy cane... More
