Christmas Cheer has filled the air once again at Santa’s Village. The moment you enter the park you are taken to a place just North of the Pole. Jingle Bells on the radio and elves around to assist you with your adventure. From Santa’s house to a rock climbing wall, there is something everyone in the family will enjoy.
Our first stop was Santa’s house, where we were able to mark our names down in the “good book” while we waited a short time to see Santa. The kids were pretty excited to share their Christmas wishes with the big guy. I was thrilled to see that only one family can enter at a time, this uninterrupted moment made it even more magical. The ambiance of the room was delightful and true to what anyone would picture Santa’s house to be.
After our visit with Santa, we were off to his workshop. There are various activities to do, some of which are for a small fee but all of which are fun. You can write a letter to Santa, paint a wood toy, make an ornament and build a snow globe. All of these activities are done with the help of Santa’s elves. My children made an ornament and painted a wood toy train.
Walking around the village were friendly characters available to take pictures and tell stories. Every single one of the staff were helpful, kind and professional. I feel that it is so rare to find places with great customer service but Skypark at Santa’s Village is not lacking one bit in that department. It feels as though the employees really enjoy their job and are happy to be at work.
There are plenty of adventurous activities to do as well within the park. You can go rock climbing, zip lining, bike riding and so much more. Archery seemed to be a big hit with families and taking a bounce on Blitzen’s bungee also was a crowd pleaser.
For a small extra fee you can sign up for a workshop with Mrs. Claus. My children wanted to build a gingerbread house and so they did. Mrs. Claus and her helper elf worked with the children and although some of them didn’t quite turn out, they were delicious! All of the food at Skypark is delicious to say the least.
We finished our day watching the parade and tree lighting ceremony where we sang Christmas music and waved too all of the characters, including the resident wolf Arrow. It was truly a magical day for us as a family and honestly cannot wait to go again. Check out the webpage http://skyparksantasvillage.com/ for more information and to purchase your tickets online.
