I’ve been coming to Santas village for years with my family. We have always loved it but this time was the icing on the cake. What a major upgrade they’ve had. Everything has been improved. It’s now more magical than it was before. Well done team Santa

An amazing park and wonderful staff. The park is nestled among high mature trees, so there is lots of shade. The size is much smaller than Wonderland, easier to navigate for smaller kids. The food is way better than Wonderland amd virtually no wait time for the rides. Having said that, the rides don't really compare, they are smaller and less thrilling, but for smaller children are
Perfect.
You can also camp or rent a cabin which is really cool.
Highly reccommended!

Truly a full day of Santa themed activities from games to rides to costumes and decorations. It is like stepping into Santa's summer home without the cold and snow -

We arrived promptly upon opening and caught the first train ride with Santa followed by a visit with him & Mrs Claus and a feeding of the reindeer! The park wasn't very crowded at this time on a Sat am in Aug and before the day got hotter -

All rides are geared to the pre-tween set but most can accommodate reasonably sized adults. The boat ride on the Muskoka River is a must! The park is well laid out to be not soo overcrowded and does involve much walking particularly if doing the suspension bridge.

There are a few meal options on-site yet more water fountains or filling stations are required. Also very pleased with the ice cream selection & size; no skimping given the price!

First and foremost, the Canadian landscape is BEAUTIFUL on your drive up to the village. If you love anything Christmas then you should check this place out. I’m a grown adult, but a child at heart when it comes to Christmas. There is letter writing, rides, meet Santa and mrs Claus, feeding reindeers and soooooooo much more. They are currently more structures under construction too! I have food allergies (some of the top 8) and I was able to find some items I can eat but not many. You’re not allowed to bring in anything, but I did see some ppl did. There is also camping spots and cabins available for rental across the street. Parking is free.

Amazing place, better than expected. Be sure to start off at Elf School to collect all the stamps on your way through the park. Perfect for 8 and under, but they are starting to add some things for the big kids. We can’t wait to visit again next year!

For a 70 year old attraction I was impressed with how they have maintained and upgraded with the building washrooms and attractions. From taking my son over 20 years ago and now my nieces and nephews last week we had a enjoyable day. I was expecting to have to buy elf hats for the kids but it’s all included. We were there the whole day and never got everything done. Gets a bit busy so you better Know that when you go!

There is a lot to do for children in the theme park. Very clean and most of the staff are friendly and engaging. When deciding to line up, make sure your children meet the height guidelines. Our family member waited in line for one of the bumper water rides for an extended period of time and turned away once they got to the front. I would have thought the employee would have scanned the area or recognized this before our family member was turned away. Being so young the little guy couldn’t rationalize why he couldn’t ride the water ride. That being said head on over to the paddle boats where you and your child will have fun and be sure to say hello to their amazing, informative and engaging employee (Quinn) Thank you Quinn for restoring the little guys faith!

Overall, wonderful time! Check it out! You will be happy you did!

Great place for families with young kids! Adults easily fit on the rides with the kids. We were there for 5hrs and easily could have spend another 2hrs there. Great range of rides to suit all ages. My kids loved the penguin peppermint ride the most.
It was too bad that there was a power outtage while we were there which shut down rides for a while. Thankfully we could go on the train ride and boat ride instead until things were back up.
No outside food allowed, which is kind of disappointing when you're trying to keep cost down as it's expensive enough to buy tickets for everyone. We would definitely come here again
