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 had pictured. One of the items we read about said you could find out if you were on Santa's naughty or nice list. We entered a room with computers and said we needed a code. After a few minutes we decided to ask one of the cashiers. He snapped at us, saying "You buy them over here for $6." I was thinking, "Ok, sorry I asked!" At that point I was kind of ready to move on, but my oldest daughter wanted to try one of their many varieties of popcorn. She was having trouble deciding so I asked if they had samples. The cashier was not pleased and let me know it. I felt like her eyes were shooting daggers right through me. She was extremely unfriendly as well. The two cashiers that were working were both making rude comments to each other and just acting very odd. I have no idea if all the employees act like this or if we just came on a bad day. We quickly moved on to The Christmas Store in Kringle Place. EXCELLENT! If you only have time to visit one, make sure you stop there and skip the Santa Candy Castle. I might try stopping by again if we are in the area, but I will cross my fingers that they have new, friendlier, employees!
