“something for children and fairytale-lovers”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

If you have children or are childish, visit here. It is beautiful place and worth visit anyway. I really liked the idea of this place. It is small-sized Disneyworld in a christmas point of view.
But. Tickets were horribly high (82 euros for 2 adults and 4 year-old), Angry Birds theme park was small and did not interest my child (even thou he is a fan...). There were nothing for adults an they asked for high price. everything costed inside. we thought that if you paid tickets you can do everything for free inside---not!
Ice thing was nice (and free), sleigh ride was weird but funny.
dancers at the show were horrible and non professionals, it was a shame. And shame to watch the show.
The park is really good idea and needs really work to fit it for all. For me it did not give much. I respect the owner or leader of this place and warmly give all my luck to develop the place, it is not easy work at all!

“I had high hopes but...”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

It was a lot of money for what it was. I also dont think you should then have to pay extra to decorate Gingerbread. Not enough to keep you there more than a couple of hours.

“Santas Magical Wonderland”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

We went to Santa Park with Thomson's, it was a split half a day between here and Santa Village. Santa Park is an underground cavern full of Christmassy delights. We went just adults for the experience but children will love it there. You've got Father Christmas himself (very believable), Elf School, Mrs Clause for Gingerbread Decorating, Christmas Train ride, Giant Snow Globe, Santas Post Office, Calligraphy writing, Live Shows, Angry Birds Play Area, Crossing of the Arctic Circle (a good photo opportunity) An Ice Bar (excellent ice sculptures) and your usual souvenir shops and a cafe/restaurant.
As Santa Park is indoors you won't need to be fully wrapped up in there, there are cloak rooms should you have your snow gear with you.
Overall we had a good hour or so here, we did get a little bored but as mentioned at the beginning of the review it was adults only, would I return in the future? with children without a doubt!
Worth a visit definitely!

Dear Lex,

Thank you for your review! You are definitely right - there is plenty to see in SantaPark and it is quite up to you how you want to throw yourself into finding your inner child and playing around with the fairytale creatures! But for children it is something so natural they can spend hours playing.
We really appreciate your feedback and your visit too! Santa is a true professional with hundreds of years of experience so we are happy to guide all of our visitors for a chat with the old man and share their experiences, culture and traditions with him. Santa knows quite a bit of them too!

Thanks again Lex, we look forward to having you with us again one day!

“for small kids”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

It is built underground, like inside a cave, impressive. It is a kind of amusement park with Christmas theme, mainly for small kids, but I myself liked it. There is a new section for Angry Bird playground, my son (6) spent most of the time there. You can meet Santa, and take own photos or buy the professional pictures, ride the tale train(lovely), make calligraphy, attend the Elf School, watch the show, visit the beautiful Ice Gallery room or shop some gifts.There is a restaurant on site, with quite good choices. There is an outside part as well, but it was reserved for Thomson guest on Saturday. Saturday was very crowded but Sunday almost empty when tour guests left. Entrance ticket is valid for two days, tempting to return when really cold outside.
