Santas Village

Recommended Posts

Here my problem with this. In two weeks were taking the grankids up to the cottage(well mudder and pops,it,s a cottage to us.LOL) and were going to stop into santas village. It,s going to cost just over 100 bucks to get in ++++. Thats unreal IMO. Whats so great about this place? Is santa going broke or something? Maybe he runs a gas sled now. Crazy entrance fee if you ask me.

 

 

For those that have been,please tell me my money wont be ill spent.

We took my my son last summer, but he was only 1 at the time and I don't think we had to pay for his admission, just our own which seemed backwards. It's definitely a good time for the younger kids (Like I'd say under 6) but if they're older they probably won't have as much fun.

 

I think Centreville offers a lot more bang for the same buck if you're in the Toronto area.

I coined a new word in your Honor Terry. A Terryism. Definition, A profoundly honest, yet wonderfully witty and relevant response to a situation or conversation.

if the kids are over 8 years old..not worth the 100.00$

take them to the Muskoka Wildlife centre instead.........

just my opinion.

Funny you'd post this Brian, we were considering it recently. We had plans to bring our 4 boys there this summer rather than Centreville where we've gone in the past. When we saw the pricing we decided we'd do Centreville again! They have some good family deals so for us parking/ferry/ride passes were still cheaper than Santa's Village...but I will have a look at the coupons Bill posted and maybe reconsider

...so just had a look at the coupon. Family of 4 you'll be just over $100 to get in. The cost of entertainment I guess. It could be worse though Brian, you could have 4 kids to pay for like I do! Looks like I'll be approx 150.00 even with the coupon

We've been 5 times. It is a complete waste of money if the kids are older than 5 -- between 2-5 it's ok, but expensive. The sports area has some go carts that are fun, but they cost even more money...I have 4 kids that are now 10, 8, 5 and 3, and we took our last trip there last year, just isn't worth it now that we have Wonderland passes.

But does Santa really spend his summers there? Are they hiring elves or dwarves these days?

Santa's village is for the pretend Santa. Everyone knows his true summer home is in Rovaniemi on the Artic circle ;) Where else do you think he learnt to ride and tame reindeer?

 

Right Dr Sal?

Yep, lots of bucks to go somewhere you really don't want to go to in the first place...take them fishing instead, if they get bored toss them into the lake, if they can swim that is. Cannot get over the admission fees to any park these days. And then as an added slap in the puss most charge your car a fee to enter too! And your car never even asked to go in the first place! :w00t::rofl2:

For younger kids,8 and under, it's a great spot. All the rides don't have a height restriction on them and the kids will have fun so in that sense, it is worth it.

      Hey all, I was wondering if anyone here might be able to help me with some ideas. My son is seven and an only child. He is very clever and plays house league hockey in winter and soccer in summer. He has just started in Beavers and it is the only hour and a half that he is out of our sight (other than school of course). The question that I have is what to do with him other than that? For instance, I have missed the boat on French immersion but would love him to learn the language (although Ch
