I travelled from Illinois with my two grandchildren (ages 10 and 8) to Santa Claus, Indiana. It was our first visit, and we were lucky that Santa's Candy Castle was one of our first stops. The kids had such a wonderful experience here. They got their direct access codes for the North Pole Network and talked online with elves Gilbert... More

This is a really old building and smells a little musty on the inside. We stopped purely for nostalgia. The kids loved it. They do have really good homemade peanut brittle and cute cheap toys by the entrance if your traveling by car or RV to entertain the kids after. Lots of old nostalgic candies to.

Not sure why this is listed as a theme park. It's a candy store. Candy is about 20% more expensive here than it would be at Walmart. They do military discount, staff is nice, lots of variety in candy, popcorn and gifts. We loved this place. Also, it's a PokeStop!

Like walking into a Christmas themed Willy wonka candy land! Definitely get the frozen hot chocolate, so delicious! Prices on candy are normal, what you would pay at the grocery store. The pez collection is amazing! A definite stop if your in Santa claus.

If you love candy, this is the place to go. Very clean and well organized. Saw candy in there I haven't seen since a kid. Brought back some memories.

Nice unique candy shop with a wide variety of candy. From older candy I remember as a child to current and home made candies.

The best part of the trip. The little ones enjoyed all the different types of candy. They choose Pez from the many hundreds of Pez dispensers.
