“Castle Noel”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Castle Noel was wonderful. I have traveled around the world, Germany, Austria, Rome, Italy,France, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Gibraltar, New Zealand and Australia, in addition to most of our states. If I were planning a trip to Ohio I would make sure I would stop here, this is a great Christmas experience.

“A place for the kid in all of us”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

A lovely destination in scenic down town Medina, Ohio. A lot of effort has gone into making this an interesting a fun place for the young at heart. I found it more geared for adults and memories of their childhood but it is a foundation to build upon for coming generations. The classic Christmas stories are timeless and our children and grandchildren should be encouraged to watch them and they will then enjoy Castle Noel even more.

“Very nostalgic”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

I visited Castle Noel at its premier opening. Wonderful artifacts and memorabilia. As most of these things are from earlier ages, I found the place to be more for adults than children. As an adult I had an absolutely wonderful time. I encourage visitors to talk to the staff as they have even more stories to add to how these collectables came about. The grand finale of the Christmas story slide is nothing short of fantastic. The scene is exactly recreated from the movie and that is probably the best attraction for the kiddies. This location was actually my childhood nursery school so that added to my nostalgic adventure. Overall, a really wonderful time.

“Sneak Peak of Castle Noel”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This Place is going to be AMAZING!!!!! I attended the Sneak Peak back in September, 2013 and the Castle Noel Gift Shop ALONE is FABULOUS! They sell all Mark Klaus Creations AND a Whole Lot More, for Every Season! The tour of the "Holly"Wood Christmas Movieland, I Had That! Toy Display Area, The New York Christmas Windows Display and of course the Santa Slide, like that in the movie The Christmas Story, are PHENOMENAL!! I cannot wait to visit Castle Noel in November when they open!!!
Yee-Ha! Christmas All Year Long!!!!!

Thank you Cindy.
Mark, Dana and the Castle Noel Build Team have worked 16 hour days to make this an incredible experience for EVERYONE. Memories are the true treasures of life © Mark Klaus. At Castle Noel Mark and Dana want to make Castle Noel part of your tradition and make memories visit after visit.
Santa Klaus Mountain is an awesome experience for children. Go up the stairs, visit Santa, take "The Best Santa Photo Ever" and then SLIDE down the slide. On Fridays and Saturdays, between 7-9 pm adults have as much fun as kids. They can be treated rudely by Santa and pushed down the slide by the elf. I have overheard Mark Klaus will be very close by during those hours.
See you in November!
