This is a small castle like structure with a wide variety of candy choices. There is commercial candy, fudge and gourmet popcorn. There are some picture opportunities in the front of the store with a sleigh and some elf pictures. If you have small children they can e-mail Santa a letter on a computer, otherwise this is just a candy... More

Closed on my visit. (9/21/16) Web site, glossy map, and Christmas Shop employees said nothing of it being closed. They pointed it out on the map!

We are so sorry you missed us. Our website states we are currently closed on weekdays. The glossy maps printed by our visitor's bureau do not list hours of operation for any attraction. The Santa Claus Christmas Store is a separate business with their own employees we don't manage - but we apologize they weren't aware of our hours. We... More

This was a nice stop after visiting Holiday world!! It was pricey, but the kids enjoyed it. Lots of nice photo ops inside and outside.

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.

This is our first time here and it was a lot of fun for the girls (teens). There's a room just for Pez and there are old-fashioned candies as well. Prices are pretty reasonable and good place to get souveniers as well.

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!
