This is a fun place to take the kids to ride the rides not much to do for mom and dad's in the mountains so it would be very cold in winter months more »

I've been coming to the North Pole periodically for the last 40 years. First as a kid, then as an uncle, and now as a dad. Aside from the addition of a zip line ride (2 at a time so a moderate line me... more »
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.
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.
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.
This place is great and very fun for kids ages 5 to 14, the rides are very fun, and the magic show was awesome, make sure you go inside the red and white striped building for the show. Get there early, pack a lunch, you can go out to your car, and re-enter. There's also plenty of food options inside. Be prepared for colder weather because you are over 7000 feet in elevation and the sun goes behind the mountains early in the afternoon in the fall/winter season. Bring a back pack or stroller, lots of hills so bring good walking shoes, everything is paved.
My wife and kids had a blast here at Santa's Workshop. It was their first time and I kinda made it a surprise for them, wanting to get them more into the Christmas spirit. The last time I was here I was about 6 or 7, so this place brought back so many great memories. My kids said they want to come back every year now. Awesome place, with great staff!!!
