A true mountain village for Santa’s Workshop

Kris Kringle couldn’t have picked a better spot to set up shop. At 7,500 feet above sea level—The North Pole sits at the foot of Pikes Peak and offers crisp mountain air and panoramic views of Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region. Since we are a true “mountain park,” we encourage you to wear comfortable shoes for the most magical time here at Santa’s Workshop.

Two dozen
unique rides

With so many rides here at The North Pole, the park is chock full of fun for everyone in your group! Our vintage rides have been restored to their full glory and are maintained yearly for good old fashioned, safe merriment.

There’s so much more to explore

In addition to our rides and attractions, there’s still so much to explore inside Santa’s Village. Take in a show with Elmer the Elf, or watch our glass blower create beautiful custom ornaments before your eyes. There’s so much magic here at The North Pole you can plan a full day of family fun.

Stroll down memory lane

Spreading Christmas cheer since 1956.

In 1955, 25 acres of land on the South slope of Pikes Peak was dedicated to Santa’s Workshop. Designed by former Walt Disney artist, Arto Monaco, the village was constructed of 12 alpine buildings including a home for Mr. and Mrs. Claus, three workshops, a blacksmith shop, gate house, reindeer barn, souvenir shop, show house, and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard.

The North Pole has expanded since then, but the pure joy of the Christmas spirit has remained intact for 65 years.
