Guaranteed a great time with the owners Julie & Mark. "Kissing" the reindeer was a first, the meal and show are second to none. And what a store with so many beautiful and unique items.

They do a 1/2 hour "tour" which is walking you out to the pen to see the reindeer that are "on duty" They share some reindeer facts, give you some gram crackers, and some oats to feed them. We visited the week before Christmas, so...More

It's free to get in, but you have to pay to do things, like we paid $5/person to walk the cornmaze. The gift shop is on site. The place really isn't that big. It is NOT worth a special trip from Davenport... It's worth about... More
