Santa’s Merry Marketplace to open in 2019!



SANTA CLAUS, IND.—–Holiday World’s iconic Kringle’s Kafe will serve its final customers on October 28, as construction of the new Santa’s Merry Marketplace begins in November.

“We’re ramping up the theming and the menus for next season,” says park president Matt Eckert. “Santa’s Merry Marketplace is nearly 50 percent larger than Kringle’s. It will include more menu items plus a coffee shop, bakery, candy store, and ice cream shop.

Holiday World will invest a total of $5.5 million for the 2019 season, including:

  • Santa’s Merry Marketplace, with five serving stations offering varying menus, plus Candy Cane Confectionary, Sugarplum Scoop Shoppe, and the Polar Expresso
  • New “Kids World” event for five weekends starting in mid-August
  • On-ride photos for Gobbler Getaway dark ride
  • Candy Cornucopia store and Dippin’ Dots Sundae Shoppe in the Thanksgiving section
  • Track improvements for The Voyage, the world’s second-longest wooden roller coaster
  • Additional Cabanas

“With Santa’s Merry Marketplace, we’ll start a new tradition at Holiday World, as Santa Claus greets park Guests each morning from the bell-tower balcony,” says Eckert. “We also plan to work in some reminders of our Santa Claus Land days and other magical surprises.”

Polar Expresso is the best coffee shop name ever, Holiday World's pun game is at an elite level.

The Christmas section feels very dated and underwhelming to me so it's nice to see them improving it like this. This looks very nice.

2 + 2 = donkey!

I think a dark ride themed to Santa's yearly flight with all the reindeer and Rudolph too would be cool for Christmas area just not sure where they would put it.

I read through the article, but I didn't catch where Beer Man is going.

We had to cut "Pizza on Earth," "Five Onion ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings," and "Wok-in' in a Winter Wonderland," from the first draft, but ... oh well.
