Photo TR: Santa's North Pole Workshop

Recommended Posts

In December my family and I visited Santa's North Pole Workshop (the park is open until the end of the year). The park is located just outside Colorado Springs on a mountain side along the roadway that goes to the top of Pikes Peak. The park is family owned and is very clean and well maintained. I felt like we had stepped back in time, to an era of small roadside parks. The park also gave me a chance to grab a rare coaster credit with their Candy Cane kids coaster. Hope you enjoy the pics.

No visit to the North Pole is complete without a visit with Santa

Great Photos! Curious Is that park only open in the winter?

 

No, the park opens in May and remains open until the end of December. To bad more American parks don't stay open longer. This park is about 7,000 to 8,000 feet up and still manages to successfully stay open through early winter. I might add, the park was packed the day we were there.

Wow I can't believe that place is still in operation. We almost went there about 15 years ago when I was a kid, but we decided not to go because my parents aren't really amusement park people. That's nice to see that it has that charm that you don't typically see in parks anymore.

It been around since 1956. What was cool about the park is you felt like you really had went back in time.

Very cool! Thanks for the photos.. It looks pretty small - does it get busy in the Summer or is it mostly a family tradition in the area to come at Christmas?

 

From my understanding, it stays fairly busy in the summer time. They have annual passes and it captures a lot of the Pikes Peak tourist crowd, which is the most visited mountain in the US.
