Disclosure: I was provided with free tickets to the North Pole in return for my honest review. As always all opinions are my own.
This time of there we are always looking for fun family activities that get us out enjoying our favorite state and holiday – Colorado and Christmas. Lucky for us we happen to have the North Pole – Home of Santa’s Workshop just a couple hours away from us! Yes, THE North Pole is here in Colorado! I am a Colorado native and sadly this was my first visit to the workshop.
About North Pole – Home of Santa’s Workshop:
A Christmas themed family amusement park that has been in existence since 1956. Santa’s Workshop has grown through the years, but pure enjoyment of the Christmas spirit has remained the same for the past 50 years.
Christmas music fills the air as visitors browse through the village. At the center of Santa’s Workshop is the North Pole, an ice-covered pole that never melts. Surrounding the North Pole are a variety of gift shops, each with their own unique selection of toys & gifts. Of course, the highlight of everyone’s visit is a trip to Santa’s House to greet the jolly old elf himself.
Dispersed throughout the park there are more than 25 rides and other attractions. Magic shows are shown throughout the day at Santa’s Show House. Visitors can listen to a variety of tunes from the 1919 Band Organ, which evoke memories of years past. A picnic pavilion is located near the front of the park for guests who would like to bring their own food.
Dress appropriately for the mountains. Come prepared for any type of weather — rain & thunder storms in the summer, cold and snow in the fall. Come as early in the day as is possible, it seems rain showers and other precipitation hit in the afternoons.
It is recommended to allow at least 3 hours at the park. This will allow your family to ride the rides, visit Santa, enjoy some food, and watch a magic show.
