Santa’s Village AZoosment Park Giveaway
|Midge o’ Racer|
I’m so excited about this! I’m a Chicagoan born & bred so I remember visiting Santa’s Village in Dundee (40 miles Northwest of Chicago) as a kid. Santa’s Village closed in 2005, but now it’s reopening as Santa’s Village AZoosment Park. Now I get to take my kids there so they can ride some of the same rides I went on!
The grand opening will be Friday, May 27 (Memorial Day weekend). Admission is $16.50 per person, with children 2 and under free, and includes all rides and attractions. Parking is free. Family season passes are available for $132 for four people, and $30 for each additional family member.

The rides at Santa’s Village will be a combination of original Santa’s Village rides (Balloon Race, Convoy, Sleighride, and Starjet), rides from Kiddieland Amusement Park (Midge O’ Racer and Kiddie Whip), and new rides (Dragon Coaster, Kiddie Ferris Wheel, Kiddie Hand Trains, Swings, and Tilt-A-Whirl). I’m particularly excited about the Convoy; it’s so cool that kids “drive” while the adults are passengers!

In addition to the rides, there are a variety of animal exhibits (as you may have guess by the “aZOOsment”) – a petting zoo, pony rides, a walk-in aviary with over 200 birds, and an exotic animal show with a hands-on demonstration – as well as a magic show with Tim Balster, the Kids Bucks Game Show (where kids can win Santa’s Village bucks to spend in the park), and an arcade with a prize redemption area. There are picnic groves available for private events, and open to the public if not booked for events.
Outside food is not allowed in the park Outside food IS now allowed in the park; there is a picnic area and coolers and small grills are allowed. There is a food area with a variety of options.
My family is very excited and we will be visiting Santa’s Village AZoosment Park when it opens, so check back here soon for more detailing information about the park and our experiences. OR, check out the park yourself! Thanks to the generosity of the Santa’s Village people, I have three family passes to give away! Family passes are good for four family members and they’re valid through June of this year. There will be THREE winners, receiving one family pass each.
