  • This place is magical and quaint! It’s perfect for kids! My daughter had an absolute ball here! They have good priced food, such wonderfully sweet staff, some neat shops like the emporium and candy shop, metal ring maker, magic show, gift shop...the list goes on. It brought back so many childhood memories seeing my daughter scurry from one thing to the next and she absolutely adored Santa!
  • Love this place. Wasn't sure when my wife talked about going as a kid, but our kids absolutely love the place. I'm amazed at what they have. If you've got kids under 10, they will love it. It is 10 degrees cooler up there and the food is reasonable $ and good. Fudge, funnel cakes, paddle boats, animals, no lines for rides. Workers are friendly too
