Santa's Enchanted Forest
Santa's Enchanted Forest, the largest Christmas theme park and carnival in the world, is a sheer delight for children of all ages. Open from November through early January, the park features a spectacular array of activities and points of interest, including nine shows nightly, a multitude of displays, forty game and food stands, kiddy rides, a 90-foot Christmas tree, and three million lights to illuminate Miami's tropical winter nights. It is a seasonal favorite not to be missed.
I love going to santas enchanted forest, but each year it gets more and more expensive.And the way the economy is now, you would think they would lower the prices so people can afford to go. Alot of people cant afford to go now.I think something should be done about the prices. Plus the food is expensive. You expect people to pay $42.00 each to get in p-lus pay for food. R u kidding?
Santa's Enchanted Forest would be cool if they didn't have the same old displays from when I was a kid ... they still have the same displays from 20 years ago... It is EXTREMELY OVERPRICED!! Workers are disgruntled and look sketchy ...and the ride selection is horrible .... if you have small children then Santa's would be ideal since everything to them is magical ... the crowd isn't to best caliber of people so keep those small kids on a short leash
well first of all the ride's are amazing and they had a good amount . the food was amazing . but the people who work for that are kinda gross i saw one whipping hes sweat with hes hands etc. but other then that its amazing ive gone 5 times this year :) its worth the money for one night . and if not get the season pass its much of a better offer .
We went with our 5 yrs old daughter the day after Christmas, on a Friday. We arrived there around 5,20 and we found parking pretty easy, but cars were arriving at a rate of 10 / minute I would say.
First advice: BUY tickets online. That's how we did, and we just went through, while the lines at the ticket boots were already around 30 persons at that time.
Second advice: if with kids, try to take advantage of all the free rides there are for them. There are enough to keep you busy for the whole night, without spending extra cash on that. Be aware that, despite the advertise on the site, there are plenty of rides and activities for which you are expected to pay (which is really bothering, considering the price is big enough, and the fact that you still need to drink / eat something while you're there).
We did decide to spend money on the elephant ride, and we went all of us on the elephant, since it did seem like something fun and different to do. What I would recommend: try to go with some friends, and let them take a picture of all your family, as this will spear you the cost of them taking you the photo on the elephant. The ride is 5 $ / person, but the cost of a reasonable size photo is a whooping 20 $. That's why someone taking your pic while you are all on the elephant would come pretty handy.
Food and drinks are plenty, but you might consider bringing along at least the drinks, as you will find other stuff to spend your money on, if you really must.
I wouldn't bother trying to get in time for the shows. For example, the elephant show... there wasn't any! Despite the advertised hour for the begining of the show, they actually decided to rather take money from kids wishing to feed the elephant or families wishing to ride, instead of having the show. All shows seem old and you will find it hard to appear enthusiastic for the sake of your child. The magic show was a little more appealing to the kids.
All in all, it was a fun experience for our daughter, and that is what matters for a parent. But: come early, buy tickets online, bring alone some drinks (even a home made sandwhich for your kid - remember that food in such places is not the healthiest to give to your kids), and extra cash.
The lights, the animation, the rides, the delicious food.........so much to do and see, what a fabulous time we had. Everyone was quite helpful, bathrooms everywhere, lots of noise and action..........
Very dirty place..nasty bathrooms..very crowded and completely disorganized. For the price of admission it should be better. I would never go again. Not enough parking..If you arrive after 6 you will be hiking. Can never compare with Disney Very Merry Christmas which is only about 10 dollars more. Sure it's a drive to Orlando but what a fantastic evening. Go the extra mile and forget this old, worn out place.
Everybody skipping lines (1 hour minimum wait to get to every ride), awful organization, nasty bathrooms, first and last time in that nasty place.
Don't go...spend the money in the local church's carnival. It's better.
My grandma is 85 years old, and I want to take her this year for her Christmas present from me. I hope they let her take an elephant ride as I love introducing her to things she's never done. This is the place to make nice memories! My family all has went & now I am finally going! This is way better than the State Fair!! Enjoy & Maybe this year you too can bring your grandma!
