Adirondack Amusement Parks: Santa's Workshop near Whiteface Mountain

Santa summers in Wilmington Even Santa has a summer home and it’s in Wilmington, New York. Known as the forerunner of the present day theme park, Santa’s Workshop in North Pole NY (Wilmington) opened its doors in 1949. The fantasy village was designed in part by Arto Monaco (the Land of Make Believe fame). Complete with rides, farm animals, Christmas-themed shops, reindeer and an actual frozen North “pole” Santa’s Workshop has seen hundreds of thousands of people pass through its doors.
