The park also has miniature golf and a ropes course, but they are only open if weather permits.
No matter if they were naughty or nice, your children will have the opportunity to meet Santa Claus and his jolly elves. For an additional charge to your admission, you can take a photo with Santa and receive a letter from him to your child before Christmas.
Food and Drink
While walking around the park, you can warm up by sipping on a hot chocolate, which is sold near the skating rink. If you happen to work up an appetite, stop by the Winter Café for snacks like hamburgers, hot dogs, wraps, salads, popcorn, cotton candy, ice cream, pretzels and churros.
Otherwise, before or after you visit the park, you can sit down for a meal at the neighboring Breakers Sports Bar and Grill or Shipwreck Tavern, both serving tasty American fare. Afterwards, visit the Beaches and Crème Soda Shop for a homemade ice cream treat.
