This place was amazing! Prices started at $1. AMAZING frozen hot chocolate at a really good price! Bought one to share with my husband and had to get another one because he didn't want to share after just one taste... Easy to find and great items inside. There is this circle room in the middle with child friendly computers so... More

Candy Castle.....was expecting a castle full of different types of candy..NOT......if you like Pez candy and flavored popcorn, this would be your place..other than that, stop by a gas station and get more of a candy selection. The staff was very unfriendly, we went twice for the Frozen Hot chocolate and fudge..those did live up to their reputation, other than... More

I seriously have dreams where I order (and devour) frozen hot chocolates from the Candy Castle. I've always been impressed with the service I've received, and I enjoy the unique blend of staff personalities. They know their stuff! I always enjoy myself when I go and leave a little happier than I was when I came in. I took a... More

Smaller than we expected but there were a few neat things to see. We got the "Famous Frozen Hot Chocolate" it was very good. Won't take long to visit here. Lots of Christmas books for kids. Popcorn and sweets.

We had plans to go to Holiday World (AMAZING) and I was so excited when I saw this place online by it- Well, first off, there are no signs for it- we had to stop at the gas station to find it. We pulled up and were highly disappointed. The outside looks nothing really like you would expect...its so much... More

We go every day we're there to get the Frozen Hot Chocolate. I think I'd drink it every day if possible. They also sell discount Holiday World tickets. If you go, get quarters prior to your arrival for the gumball machines.

Our family camps nearby at Lincoln State Park every year, and we always visit the Castle at least twice on our trip!! The Frozen Hot Chocolates are a must have!! Check online for great deals for the whole family! And, if you are brave enough, try the Fire and Ice Challenge! A fun place to enjoy Christmas all year long!!

This wasn't what I was expecting at all. There was only a half wall of overpriced Pez, two tubs of the same cotton candy I bought at Meijer the other day (only twice the price), and a few odds and ends plus the fudge and drinks. I was expecting a lot more candy. There was also a small room with... More

We decided to make a weekend of or trip to Santa Claus IN and Holiday World. We arrived late afternoon and checked into our rental. Our first stop was the Santa's Candy Castle. I had read so much about it and was so excited to finally take my kids. The actual store is cute, but it was smaller than I... More

Great little candy shop. We spent about 20 minutes looking around. The place has a great layout but is not utilized to its fullest potential. Each room could be a different type of candy like a taffy room, a fudge room, a hard candy room. The fudge was fantastic!
