Went to check out Santa's Land and there are security cameras on the property. The Sheriffs department came. Was informed by them and a neighbor the property has been purchased and will reopen in late 2017 as Santa's Land once again! We are very happy about this!

Don't be fooled, this attraction is still closed and will most likely remain so. There are no plans as far as anyone in town knows about re-opening the place. During the process of a potential buyer inspecting the place, it was determined that the infrastructure was overall in quite a deteriorated condition and would require hundreds of thousands of dollars...

I do hope Santa's Land will reopen soon and new memories can be made as this was a fun place at one time!

We use to visit all the time back in the 60's & 70's - still upright but closed with a For Sale sign out front. Hope someone decides to make an investment of time and money. Kids use to have so much fun in its day!

Drove by Santa's Land, place is out of business and appears to be in sad shape. Someone with a vision could turn this into a very nice place to visit again. Sad the owners don't give a crap about the property.

This park is closed and all the animals that did not die from lack of care have been removed via the court system. The deer that remain now live at the Bennington VT Deer Park. The property is run down and essentially abandoned. The closure can be verified via law enforcement or town offices. It was a sweet park during... More

This is a cute place. We loved it. Plenty to keep the kids busy. I'd recommend it more for younger under age 10 kids, but then again I'm a big kid and I really loved it. I loved seeing the reindeers.

Most haunted amusement parks themes are creepy and scary... this parks theme is Christmas (not clowns!!) which is even more scary. It does not appear to be open to the public, however it does not appear to be closed to the public either. Our afternoon started with slipping though a juniper bush and past a broken fence with only a... More

The "excellent" reviews on here are fake😡. Anyone who actually has gone will give it 1 star... Only because you can't give zero stars
