Santa's Village is running into some trouble since the land it is on has been sold. They have until 2008 to leave.
The park is historic since it was one of the first theme parks, and one of the first in a chain. The other two parks located in California have since closed. The park opened in 1959 at a cost of 1 million dollars. The park went through changes including the Polar Dome, Racing Rapids, Coney Island, and Old McDonalds Farm. A former owner also owned the now defunct Adventure land. When that park closed, several of the rides were moved to SV. In 1998, after a year of delays, the park opened Typhoon. This coaster is fun, but very rough. This is a great park, and I do not want to see it lost. If it is saved, they will move to a town about 30 miles west. I think this park will be saved, since they are drawing some good crowds even this late in the season.
