Visitor Tips and News About Santa's Workshop - North Pole
A great amusement park for the whole family. I love that the kids can ride practically everything. Not overpriced. We stop every visit to Colorado. Kids are 4, 8 and 10.[Mary, 07/07/2014]
This is off their official website: "Santa's Workshop/North Pole is a Christmas themed family amusement park that has been in existence since 1956. Christmas music fills the air as visitors browse through the village. At the center of Santa's Workshop is the North Pole, an ice-covered pole that never melts. Surrounding the North Pole are a variety of gift shops, each with their own unique selection of toys and gifts. Of course, the highlight of everyone's visit is a trip to Santa's House to greet the jolly old elf himself."
As a child in the 70's, it was hard to look at all the roadside signs and not want to stop. My parents never did take me there (sigh!).[Bonni Funk, 06/19/2001]
Santa's Workshop/North Pole is part of our "Every day is Christmas" section. The diseased-looking elf on top of the North Pole has been replaced.
