December 31, 2021

Santa will welcome you to his 12th now nearly-annual New Year’s Eve Partybration in 2021. We historically celebrate from 4pm to 9pm on December 31st. We typically begin celebrating the new year a bit early for our younger guests, with fireworks at 8pm. Ride on some of your favorite rides and enjoy some of your favorite Santa’s Village treats one more time to close out next year. This extra-inclusive (food and soft drinks, rides and festivities) party features a DJ who takes requests.

What does admission include?

Historically, in addition to the standard features — parking, stroller use, the Elfabet game and prize, a blacksmith ring, visits with Santa and his reindeer, amusement rides, the 3-D movie and light shows — your admission during the New Year’s Eve special event typically includes fireworks and party favors, plus delicious treats from our food shops, and soft drinks.  It’s the perfect combination of a late visit at Santa’s Village, and an early-evening New Year’s celebration.

What is open?

All of our rides (excluding water attractions) that normally operate during our Christmastime season are typically scheduled to be open on this evening; snow, rain, or freezing temperatures may limit some rides.  You Tubing and the Ferris Wheel usually close at 7:30pm prior to the fireworks show.

All of our dining locations (excluding Merry Mess Hall) are scheduled to be open as well. Food and soft drinks from our shops are included with admission during the New Year’s Eve special event.

Santa will be at his home so that children can thank him for their gifts.  His reindeer will be available to meet with guests until 7:30pm prior to the fireworks; the reindeer will not be available after the fireworks show.  Elfabet University and the Blacksmith Shop will be open.  And several of our gift shops will be open for post-Christmas shopping.

What food/beverage items are offered?

The food and beverage menu options offered during our Christmastime season are made available during this special event.  Some items include pizza, French fries, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, soups, stew, cookies, fudge, doe-nuts, soft drinks, hot cocoa, and coffee!

What should we wear?

You should bundle up!  A visit to Santa’s Village is primarily an outdoor experience, and winter is upon us at the end of December.  We highly recommend wearing winter jackets, boots, ski pants, hats, and gloves/mittens to fully enjoy your visit.
