Coronavirus Update

Effective 07-07-20

 

Dear Valued Guests:

 

Though Phase 4 of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois plan does not allow us to open Santa’s Village, we are anxiously awaiting future guidance that may include the potential for it to open yet this season. 

 

However, we are thrilled to announce that Santa Spring’s waterpark at Santa’s Village will be opening on July 14th, 2020.  Opening Santa Spring’s requires following multiple guidelines from IDPH, DCEO, CDC, etc.  Due to this, reservations will be required.  Please watch for further updates that will be released soon including when the reservation system will be available along with all other guidelines that will be in place for Santa Spring’s.  Traditional amusement park food options will be available to our guests along with souvenirs and your “fun in the sun” necessities.  We appreciate your continued support of our family-run business! 

 

Please note that guidelines have affected the scheduled operating days and times of Santa Spring’s along with our admission pricing.  Beginning July 14th, Santa Spring’s will operate Tuesday – Sunday from 10am – 1pm and 2pm – 5pm, through July 31st.  Further dates and times will be released in late July.  The admission price for Santa Spring’s will be $9.99 per person plus applicable taxes.  Paid admission will be required for anyone over the age of 12 months. 

 

For our valued Season Pass Holders, we appreciate your continued support of our family-owned business!  Due to the amount of operating days that Santa’s Village has been closed in 2020, we will be extending your 2020 season passes to be valid at Santa Spring’s in 2020 as well as the ENTIRE 2021 season for both the amusement and waterpark.  There will be no additional cost to you, and no action required on your part.  This offer applies to all season passes purchased through June 30, 2020.

 

Those that have purchased 2020 general admission or “any-day” tickets, will receive a similar offer as season passes.  Tickets can be used in 2020 at Santa Spring’s, with no refund on difference of value, or can be held and used for any day during the 2021 season.  Coupons, promotions and third-party tickets that were received with a 2020 expiration date will be extended one year from the date of expiration. 

 

We look forward to seeing you this summer!

 

Sincerely,

 

Jason, Amy, Ty and Kaylee Sierpien along with the Santa’s Village Family

Dear Valued Guests:

Your health, safety and well-being while visiting Santa’s Village is and has always been our top priority. As a result, we have decided to postpone the season opening of Santa’s Village due to the current COVID-19 health concerns in Illinois and around the country.

Santa’s Village will now open for the 2020 season on May 23rd. We believe that this decision is in the best interest of our guests, employees and the community. As we work to open Santa’s Village this spring, we will continue to implement preventative measures in line with the recommendations of government and health professionals.


While we will not be extending the 2020 season, all pass holders will be provided with more value-added benefits to their passes. These additional benefits will be announced prior to when the park opens to the public.

We will continue to monitor this fluid situation and will provide updates as they occur. We appreciate your loyalty to Santa’s Village and look forward to a summer filled with fun family memories.

Sincerely,

Your Santa’s Village Family
