  • My grandchildren love this place. Not a crowded place and you can ride all day at a very reasonable price unlike the more commercialized places. We rode the Tilt-a-whirl for 10 minutes straight and no problems at all. They'll let you stay on and ride again if you like.Very cool place at the base of Pike's Peak. They have a North Pole made of ice year-round and just can't enough about this nostalgic and fun place. Magic show performance is good and Santa is a favorite with the kiddos. Give it a try and look for coupons/discounts online.
  • Fun for children and adults alike the price may be rising but so is the price to keep an amusement park open. People need to understand that amusement parks wouldn't be able to stay open without paying the rent so to speak. Everything is still very affordable and fun. Food is decent and most of the staff is very friendly. I love this place and always will. The folks that own the park are doing a very good job and should keep up the great work!!
  • Our family LOVED this amazingly well kept park. Up front I would like to admit the only reason I have given 4 instead of 5 stars is due to the uneven terrain (makes it hard for little people to walk independently). The majority of rides are geared for children 32 inches in height or taller. If you have a child under this height you will need to ride the ride with them. The concessions are affordable and serve the most delicious food I've ever had at an amusement park. I have heard some people not thrilled with the admission cost but honestly its still very affordable and cheap when compared to a fair or off name amusement park. The Santa here is amazing! His little house is cozy and he takes the right amount of time to talk with each kid and liven their spirits. I highly enjoyed their adorable post office and had my kids names & addresses placed on the list for Santa to send a letter of encouragement to.
  • Pros: It's it's deceptively big. When we went we missed the whole back of the park. It's a lot of fun, and great for kids 10 years and younger. Most older children will be bored to tears but the magic is there for the young and young at heart. Also if you buy souvenirs in the park they will hold the souvenirs for you at the front of the park so you can ride more rides and enjoy the rest of the park. Cons: it's a little dated. Some of the rides are smidge sketchy, but I am sure they are safe. I didn't see a lot of places to eat, and the one place I did find, was very crowded and overpriced. Your older kids will probably not have a very good time. All in all it's a lot of fun for parents and young kids. It has the true magic of Christmas.
  • Great park for small kids. Have been twice and never seen Santa! The line is always too long and the kids would rather ride rides, which is fine with me. Lines for rides aren't very bad at all and they have lots of choices. Our latest trip might be our last as our oldest is 6 and the park is designed for small children. He might be too old for it in the future, but he and our two-year old loved every minute of our recent visit. Pack your lunch, though! The food, though reasonable, takes a long time, which is bad for hangry toddlers.
