Santa's Village Azoosment Park 2013 Opening Day is Mother's Day!!!
Part of my job as a Vintage Amusement Park Maven includes trolling around Facebook throughout the day, lurking to find exciting information for my fellow vintage amusement park enthusiasts. Well, here's a doozy for Northern Illinois park fans! Copied from their Facebook page, the great folks at Santa's Village Azoosment Park say:
"2013 Grand Opening on Mother's Day May 12th ... Mothers on that day will be admitted FREE when accompanied by 2 full paid admissions. Hope to see all you Mothers out at the park on May 12th for a fun filled day to kick off our 2013 Season! ~ Jason & Don"
Folks, get yourselves out to this super East Dundee park! The owners have been hard at work, adding even more rides and attractions in the past few months. You recall the park was closed for years and sat dormant. If you've been paying attention in the slightest to my mad ramblings, you also know this park has "adopted" a few of the iconic Kiddieland rides after that park closed. All in all, Jason and Don are creating vintage park magic: bring back the nostalgic past and enriching the experience with the fresh and new.
It's not every day that a park essentially left for dead rises up again and comes back better than ever. Santa's Village Azoosment Park is a miracle, incorporating rides, shows, animals, and attractions in one fun place!!
