We visited here twice in one week. The first time we came, Santa was at the North Pole on his day off, so our son had to wait until the next day when he was there. When our two... read more

If this place wasn't a few miles off of the Interstate, I would have been extremely unhappy to be there. Over-hyped, overpriced stuff, and basically a big rotten egg. At least Branson has the shows.

We visited here twice in one week. The first time we came, Santa was at the North Pole on his day off, so our son had to wait until the next day when he was there. When our two year old did meet with Santa, Santa talked with him about the real meaning of Christmas and was most sincere. We... More

Santa Claus shop and Lake Rudolph are awesome!!! We've been multiple timez and love spending time looking at the awesome displays. We pick a special ornament out to put on our own tree.

My 3 year old son was so excited to see Santa, so we made a special trip to Santa Claus, IN to see what we hoped would be an authentic looking Santa. We were sadly disappointed. The Santa was not friendly and spent the majority of the visit preaching to my son about Jesus. I agree that Jesus is the... More

We visited the store so my 4 year old nephew could visit with Santa. The Santa was terrible - unfriendly and not at all jolly. He made us uncomfortable because he barely spoke to us and it was awkward. The Santa was not very authentic either. Also, the staff in the retail store was very unfriendly and not helpful even...

Has a lot of ornaments. Did not have much in the way of secular items. Was looking Advent calendars and they were mostly non- existent.

I was looking for ornaments with names. Anything, any ornament, could be inscribed with a name, for the cost of the ornament. I found some ornate ones that I had engraved some with first names and some with last names. I was very disappointed with the size of the name on the ornaments. I also was taken to the back... More

If you like Christmas ornaments and decorations this is the place for you. Very nice clean and staff was very helpful. Had our family picture taken with Santa and they were very patient until they got a good picture everyone was happy with. Also very reasonable at under $9. Take the time for a quick or not so quick visit... More
