Visitor Tips and News About Santa's Land USA and Spray Foam House
This long-time attraction, which had closed in 2011, is set to reopen in time for the 2012 Christmas season. It has had its ups and downs through the years, struggling due to increased costs and decreased attendance. An auction of equipment had been scheduled to take place in October 2012, but a generous Secret Santa stepped in with a donation to enable the park to welcome visitors once again.[Julie, 11/11/2012]
Santa's Land is reopening! An anonymous benefactor stepped in and helped the owners reopen for a 55th season in 2012. The park will be open weekends from the Friday after Thanksgiving through the weekend before Christmas.[Don, 11/10/2012]
Sounds like a great excuse for a Vermont road trip. Fans of the Santa's Land spray foam house and Purple Plum Man should seize the opportunity.
I just learned through Santa Land's Facebook page that 12/18/11 was its final day of operation. The owners couldn't keep it going any longer.[Rose Hirsch, 12/24/2011]
