Year-round, this park will put you in the holiday spirit. You can meet Santa Claus and his elves, ride on the Christmas Tree Ride, or take a trip on the Enterprise Space Shuttle. Kids and adults both will love the Antique Carousel, the Aerial Tram, or the Miniature Train. With more than two dozen rides for all ages and thrill levels, this is a great place to enjoy time with your family. The park has been open since 1956, and gives visitors an opportunity to browse the village shops, stroll the snowy lanes while carols play in the background, or head directly to Santa's Workshop in the North Pole. In addition to the Christmas-themed attractions guests can feed the goats and llamas or enjoy a show. These docile creatures are named Dutch, Prime Time, and Papcho, and they will greet you as you enter the park.
The park plays host to a variety of events. You can host your birthday party at Santa's Workshop or bring the entire family out for a day of rides, shows, and cake and ice cream. You can visit Santa anytime the park is open, except during his lunch break around 12:30 each day. Lines have a tendency to get long, so you may want to make this the first stop during your visit. There is no better way to kick off your trip to the amusement park than to chat with Santa before enjoying the rides and attractions. Digital photos are available with Santa and guests can choose from a variety of photo packages.
Shows are a popular attraction at the park and include magic shows, the Elmer the Elf Show, and the Chris Moose Show. When the shows are over, spend time riding the amusement rides which include boats, a kiddie coaster, a Ferris wheel, dive bombers, the rocket ride, the whip, a Tilt-a-Whirl, the space shuttle, a mini-Himalaya, and the Scrambler. Regardless of your size or thrill tolerance, there is plenty to do at the park when it comes to fun rides for the family.
During your time at the park, you will surely hear your stomach growl at some point. There are several dining choices including Mother Hubbard's Cupboard which serves snacks like pretzels, nachos, hot and cold drinks, and a variety of fast food items like nuggets, hamburgers, and hot dogs. Miss Muffets is located in the Enchanted Forest section of the park and serves popcorn, pretzels, funnel cakes, hamburgers, hot dogs, and hot and cold drinks. The Carousel Cafy is located behind the Santa's Showhouse and features all sorts of sweet treats like shakes, ice cream, and sundaes. The Candy Kitchen provides guests with more to satisfy their sweet tooth and sells jellybeans, fudge, and various candy delights. You can enjoy your meal at the covered picnic pavilion, whether you buy food in the park or bring a lunch from home.
There are plenty of amusement parks in the country, but this one is unique. Not only do you get to enjoy the fun, food, and excitement of an amusement park, you get to do it in the spirit of Christmas.
