We were hosted by SkyPark Santa’s Village. However, all opinions remain my own as always <3
Christmas is without a doubt my favorite time of the year. Everything about it is just so magical, and I try to keep it as magical as possible for my kids. We visit Santa, we go see beautiful Christmas lights, we have an Elf on the shelf, we watch Christmas movies…and this year….we got to visit SANTA’S VILLAGE! Talk about magic!
Zoey did not get to come with us but we will definitely be back for more! Like I said- MAGICAL!!!
First let’s talk about what makes Skypark’s Santa’s Village so magical. Well for starters it’s located in the mountains so you instantly get this winter wonderland feel. The whole village is currently decked out in all the Christmas glitz and glam including snow capped shops, restaurants, and activity booths. There are also holiday characters walking around, a giant beautiful Christmas tree, and right when you walk in you see- SANTA’S HOUSE!
What to do:
We started off our day by exploring. There are so many activities; zip-lining, archery, cycling, arts & crafts, a boulder room! With my pregnant and Lia well being Lia, we kept to the toddler friendly activities. One of Lia’s favorite rooms was the boulder room- it is literally a room where you can rock climb all around it! SHE LOVED it!
We continued our day by exploring the super fun playground area. Lia climbed up the rock climbing wall, walked across tree logs, played hide and seek in the house, and even made her way on the net. All activities perfect for her age. Her all-time favorite was watching the various shows and taking rides on the train! She even got off her seat and joined the group of dancing kiddos during a music performance.
What to eat:
We had to make a stop at The Gingerbread House for some hot cocoa and Gingerbread Men. They were so delicious, soft, and festive! Lia sure loved munching on those and a cake pop.
We had lunch at Gatherings BBQ House. It was so delicious. I fell in love with their soup of the day; Butternut Squash Soup. There are a few other places like a pub and some quick meals, but that BBQ smell got this pregnant mama!
You can’t go to Santa’s Village and not visit Santa! The lines varies throughout the day. We waited until a bit later in our stay to wait in line. While I waited Lia took a good 2-3 train rides (remember I said it was her favorite). Outside his house there are some lawn games and a big book where everyone can sign their name.
I love that you enter the house with your group only, making your experience private and extra special. Santa does not rush you or your kiddos. He takes his time with them and it is totally worth it. I packed a baby onesie to take a special picture…but remember this was before we knew there were twins growing in my belly! lol!
Skypark Santa’s Village is open year round! I know kids wonder where Santa runs off to the rest of year- and now you can go show them! The activities are perfect for your whole family! I cannot wait to go back! Thank you for having us we can’t wait to be back!
