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.

That looks like you guys had a lot of fun. I have always wanted to go since I was a kid but we would always end up somewhere else lol.

We LOVE the North Pole. It is a tradition for us to go every year! Sometimes we go during the twilight hours to have a little fun one day and come back the other day free of charge! We've stayed all day too. I love the toys they have- good prices and different than some of the things in regular stores (plus I can totally say it came from the North Pole without lying).

I remember a place like this growing up. They had a big ice thing that we love touching.
Such an adorable amusement park! And wow can't beat that price, some places around here are $50 per person…unreal!! The kids are so cute!! 🙂

Yes, I visited there when I was about 3. My aunt and uncle were stationed in Colorado Springs and we visited in the summer…and went to the North Pole. I loved it. Although we then proceeded to drive up Pike's Peak…which I didn't enjoy. Thanks for sharing. Your post brings back wonderful memories.
It was so much fun! I'm so glad that Lennox got to go with Jude and Teagan too – so much more fun than if we had gone on our own. And the picture of them holding hands walking away … melts my heart! What two cute little kids!!! I wish I had known about the Letters too!

This looks like so much fun. I have been to this area of Colorado as a child but I don't think we ever visited this park. I would love to visit one day.

Oh my this looks like so much fun! I'm definitely going to have to take a trip down there with my son. He'd love it! What a magical place.
