Santa's Land USA

We are happy to report that Santa's Land USA in Putney opened on November 25, 2017, under new ownership, after being closed for nearly four years! Admission includes entry into the park, unlimited rides, a visit with Santa, and a Christmas walk-through animation.

Santa's Land

Santa's Land was reopened last year. The current owner and animal caretaker were cited this week with a number of counts of animal cruelty after police found a large number of dead animals on the property. At the moment the owner of Santa's Land says it will remain open, but the future looks uncertain.

Santa's Land

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.
