  • Very pleasantly surprised by a wonderful day. They are continuing a great children's adventure. A little sticker shock at first, but once in the wonderful story book characters and shows make it all worth it. Neat, clean, well maintained. It's a treasure!
  • We like to go to Lake Placid a lot and this is the first time we have brought both of our kids (1 & almost 4). Decided to take a short trip north to check out Santa's Workshop and I have to say it was perfect for our kids. I must give great accolades to the excellent staff and performers (especially Sam and Sandy, the rag dolls). They made my daughter's visit very enjoyable and entertaining. Every character we encountered went above and beyond to make my kids smile and laugh and truly believe they were at the north Pole. Also, Santa spent a good amount of time interacting with our kids and he does a great job in that role. My daughter did believe he was the real deal and not a stand in, shopping mall "helper." You have to check your expectations at the door...or the North Pole Post Office which serves as the entrance. This park is not new and it shows, although I do think the ownership and staff take very good care of the place and grounds. Experience this place as you would though the eyes of a small child that still believes. The target audience is most definitely children in the pre-K to early grade school range and the staff and performers do a great job catering to that crowd. All in all, I think we got a good value and stayed for about 2.5 - 3 hours. It makes me feel good to see a place like his still around, especially one that does add to the economy in that area. Most smaller amusement parks have disappeared over the last few decades. If you have smaller children and are looking for a fun morning or afternoon filled with Christmas, give this place a shot. If you go in not expecting Disney World theatrics and enjoy this place for the sweet little slice of Americana that Santa's Workshop really is, you will not be disappointed.

  • Loved it when my children we wee ones and now the experience of taking my grandkids. Great for the little ones, rides, shows and Santa Claus! Worth the trip up to the high peaks.
