Awesome, for kids

Like most of stuff in Gramado, this attraction is mainly for kids. It has a nice view of the mountains and has a nice atmosphere, but not very exciting for adults.

I took my kids (6 and 9) to visit the place and they asked us to leave after 10 minutes. The place is “out of date”. Nothing interesting. Old things in a very “old” mentality place. Don´t waste your money and time

Very basic park with old decorations. Our ten year old was bored to death but our four year old lived the visit and wanted to stay forever. Only go if you have children who still believe in Santa and who appreciate simple decorations and pleasures.

You have to pay to enter the park, then all of the rides are an additional cost. The park is in need of some major maintenance and upgrades!! Picture with Santa was nice (and free). There is also a nice lookout spot of the valley from inside the park. I'm not sure if I would reccomened visiting this place to... More

Nice place to visit with kids. Santa Claus homeland. It has some attractions and places to visit. You will see some "Renos", it has a balcony with a nice view of the mountains.

It doesn't worth while. Expensive coz it is under bad condition. Attractions is old fashion style and the same in years with no any innovation. I assume to walking on street is better way to enjoy the xmas lights.

Despite of the Santa Claus house, the rest of the attractions were very bad cared. There were building happening while the park was open (noise, dust), attractions closed, and the others seemed very old. The only good things were the Santa Claus house and the reindeers. Too expensive for what it offers (R$20).

The place lacks maintenance and needs urgent renovation. Anything you want to do inside is charged and despite this fact it is obvious that no maintenance is carried out on the attractions. Honestly, I feel like that place is an accident waiting to happen. Do not recommend.
