What a great day! We drove from the Bartlett Inn in Bartlett, NH to Santa’s Village in Jefferson
NH. On Us Rte 302 in Crawford Notch we saw a beautiful yearling Moose. She just stood 5 feet from the side of the road and let us take pictures for 10 minutes. She was a beauty! What a way to start the day! Santa’s Village was excellent. We had two families with 6 year olds and 15 year olds and all ages had a great time! There is a great mix of rides even for small children. Part of the fun is for the kids to do a Alphabet punch card where elves around the park are different letters of the alphabet. At the end kids submit the card for a diploma and a surprise. We thought it was great that each sleigh on the sleigh ride was equipped with an umbrella just in case! We also purchased a snow globe with our picture on it. It is our family tradition.
The new water park is fantastic. We were at Whales Tale in Lincoln NH last week and it is a similar contraption to their new playground. Large water playground with at least 5 slides stairs, squirters, and a giant bucket that empties every 5 minutes dousing whoever is below! Absolutely fantastic. The kids loved it ..especially the 15 year olds!
This park is a little less expensive than Story land in Glen NH with an entry fee 2 dollars less and the food was approximately 20% less. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The cookies in the bakery where you can design your own gingerbread man were delicious! WE all had a lot of fun and the adults had a great relaxing day. Where else an you say that about an amusement park!
