Ruins of Santa's Land

An interesting stop, but disappointingly the pink train is now gone. Also, there seems to be a renewed effort to sell Santa Land with a sign proclaiming "considering all offers NOW!"

Beware of snakes.

I'm not sure what this once was, but now it's just a bunch of creepy, broken-down cabins with rattlesnake warning signs everywhere. Like many of the attractions on Route 66 it is a pull-over, so why not stop, but don't expect much.

Santa's Land has been abandoned for decades, preserved by the dry desert air.

I am usually not afraid to hop a fence for a good photo op, but the warning signs at this attraction were amazingly effective! With 60 years of holiday history here, we made the drive from Kingman, but Santa's Land is a bust and not worth the trek.

Agreed -- it only merits a brief stop if you're already driving between Vegas and Kingman.

For sale sign.
