This summer, bring the family to visit Santa and his elves and reindeer at the jolly old elf’s vacation home in Jefferson, NH, and enjoy a fun-filled day of unlimited rides, shows, live professional performances, and outstanding attractions at Santa’s Village.
The Christmas-themed Santa’s Village is a premiere New England attraction and one of the nation’s outstanding amusement parks, recognized by Trip Advisor as one of the Top 25 Amusement Parks in the U. S., and the only one in New England. Trekaroo.com named Santa’s Village as one of the Top Ten Amusement Parks for Young Kids in the U.S.A.
Admission to Santa’s Village is your ticket to a “full day of joy and excitement.” The warm sunny days of summer are especially conducive to exploring all of the attractions the park has to offer, with hours and hours of fun for every member of the family, from toddlers, tweens and teens to their parents and grandparents.
Visiting with Santa and his reindeer in their summer home is complemented by dozens of additional attractions. Step aboard the Skyway Sleigh monorail for an overview of the park, take the exciting Yule Log Flume water ride, experience the thrilling Chimney Drop, ride the entrancing Reindeer Carousel, and get your thrills on Rudy’s Rapid Transit Rollercoaster. Cool off at the Ho, Ho, H2O water park with plenty of places to splish, splash, slide and climb, and prepare to get drenched by the giant bucket of water that fills and then spills every few minutes! Check out the rides here!
Kids will get a kick out of playing the Elfabet Game, searching out the elves in the park, and visiting the blacksmith shop to receive a special ring.
Lunch and ice cream are available at the Elfs Lodge all day, and other goodies to search out include pizza made to order at Nick’s Pizza Emporium, fresh fudge, mini Doe-Nuts made right before your eyes, and fresh-baked gingerbread cookies. Check out the places to eat here!
Before you leave, don’t forget to check out all the special Santa’s Village souvenirs in the gift shop, including a personalized letter from Santa, which will be delivered in December.
The daily admission rate in 2017 is $32 per person, and ages one, two, and three enter for free.
