The park is very dated and very expensive. There are not too many rides, but it is fun for ages 5 and under.

Had a great visit to Santa's Village. We were 4 adults, one in her 90's. Had our picture taken with Santa. Rode the little train, went for a ride in Santa's summer sleigh, fed the reindeer, said a prayer in the chapel, had ice cream cones, played mini golf. Had a great day. Highly recommend.

We took 2 four year olds here for the day and had a blast. The food was good and reasonably priced, there were minimal wait times for rides and the splash pad was very cool. No, the staff was not overly enthusiastic but I really didn't care. It's my job to entertain my kids, not the staff at Santa's Village.... More

We went with our 2 grandsons ages 1&3. They had a great time as did we, everything is geared towards younger kids and the rides cater to them as well. the food at the park is good and not over priced. We will be back again.

I would recommend Santa's Village for kids aged 4 to 9. They definitely have to believe in Santa to get the full benefit of being there. The rides are all geared to younger kids and all have a Christmas theme. We didn't have to wait in long lines for the rides but getting food was challenging because they only had... More

This was my first time bringing my 5 year old daughter to Santa's Village. The staff and Santa was great! I don't understand why people are complaining the place is run down or too small. I think that's the point of Santa's Village - small, rustic charm. They must've been comparing it to Canada's Wonderland or some other resort. Definitely... More

I was pretty skeptical about taking an infant and a toddler but my daughters insisted. My recollection from about 30 years ago wasn't overly enthusiastic. Well, I'm pleased to say I was wrong on all counts. The layout and activities are excellent and the whole site is impeccably clean. We only observed the Sports area and used the picnic area... More

A bit expensive but definitely worth it. Book the zipline before visiting because usually its fully booked.

We recently visited Santas Village with our 3 young children aged 7, 5 and 2 hoping to have a magical summer Christmas Experience. Although the kids had an OK time we would NEVER return! - To start, the admission is over priced (even with the 5$ off coupon for being on Santa's Nice List). There are more activities to pay...

Great fun visiting Santa and Mrs Clause at their "summer cottage". Lots to see and do. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The rides and attractions are great also. And it was great to see Santa riding around on his cart.
