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...More

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 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.

The property has been under contract and plans approved by Putney to reopen as Santa's Land. This is why the Real Estate sign has been removed.
