Christmas Family Fun under the Bracebridge Summer Sun
If you’ve spent any amount of your childhood in Muskoka, then you probably know first-hand why Santa’s Village is the most magical place in Muskoka.
A beloved, family-centric amusement park, Santa has been welcoming the young (and the young at heart) to his “Summer Home” in Bracebridge for almost 65 years.
Santa’s Village is 60-acres jam packed with rides, live entertainment and more enchanting attractions, that you get to enjoy before (or after) your magical visit with Santa Claus himself.
With all of their new rides, dining options, and awesome live entertainment, it’s no wonder that Santa’s Village is ranked #1 out of TripAdvisor’s 26 Things to Do in Bracebridge.
If you’ve never visited, or it’s been a few years, you have to plan your visit right away, because this magical theme park just keeps getting better and better.
In addition to tried and true favourites like the Candy Cane Express and Santa’s Summer Sleigh, you can now try out new and exciting rides like Santa’s Farm Tractors, Jolly Bumpers Bumper Boats, Blitzen’s Balloons, Santa’s Carousel and the Peppermint Penguin Roller Coaster.
Of course, every day at Santa’s Village is filled with merriment, but there’s a special something extra in the air on their Theme Days. Our favourite has to be August 17, when the Village aims to break the world record for largest Elf gathering!

Munch & Meet
Every day this summer – until September 3, 2019 – YOU could join the big man himself for the most important meal of the day! That’s right, join Santa for a hearty breakfast that includes fresh fruit, Belgian waffles, and more.
This is the coolest experience for kids and really makes their visit all the more special. Plus, it’s the best way to make sure you’re all fueled up for your fun-filled day at the Village!
The Park has also put their magic to work with new and newly-improved food stops.
New this year, Santa is pleased to now offer a full service, sit-down rotisserie restaurant. Enjoy scrumptious eats while seated next to the river, indoors or outdoors on the picturesque deck. Perfect for lunch, an early dinner, or a nourishing break during your fun-filled visit to Santa’s Village.
There are many great dining and refreshment options throughout the park. Your kids will love decorating freshly baked gingerbread cookies at Mrs. Claus’ Bake Shop. For a quick bite, stop in to Dasher’s Deli for a selection of fresh salads, grilled paninis, and sandwiches, or Prancer’s Poutinery and Gourmet Dogs for Canadian favourites.
More Fun Awaits
We know it seems hard to believe, but even more fun awaits you. Both Sportsland and Muskoka Zip Lines & Aerial Park are easily accessible from Santa’s Village and offer you some great options for the older members of your group.
Sportsland has some awesome activities, like batting cages, mini-golf, an arcade, laser tag, and way more for you to try out and explore. And, if you’re seeking even more thrills, you’ve got to experience Muskoka Zip Lines and Aerial Park, where their zip line canopy tour, aerial adventure course, and jump tower are sure to get your adrenaline pumping.
Book Your Stay Today
With so much to see and do, it’s up to you what adventures you get up to. But, there are definitely two things you’ll never forget about your visit: the sheer joy on your child’s face and … how quickly they fall asleep on the way home!
Why not make it a true family trip and stay overnight at the theme park’s campground, Santa’s Whispering Pines, which has campsites, RV sites, cabins, yurts, and cottages all for rent.
