08.11.17 Santa’s Village at the North Pole in Colorado Springs, Colorado

Friday, August 11, 2017 – On our way back down the mountain from seeing Pike’s Peak on Tuesday we saw that the North Pole was open and the sun was starting to come out.  We only had about an hour there before they closed but we went in and rode the rides we could while they were open.

These are the beautiful mountains that surround this special place.

While our time was limited we walked way to the back of the park and climbed up what felt like a mountain to get to where the Santa Clause Zip Line ride was.  That was my favorite ride last time and this time.  You are carried in his sleigh backwards really high and then shot back down the zipline to the beginning.  The ride acts like it’s not going to stop but it goes past the stop point and does stop!!!

I found a YouTube video that shows most of this amazing park from the air.  Near the end they show the Santa Clause Zip Line in action.

This is really a wonderful place for children and adults like us.  Here is a link to our last visit here in 2015 if you’d like to see more about it.  That particular blog also shows the Cog Railway we rode to get to the top of Pike’s Peak.  Having gone up there both ways last time we knew we liked driving it better.
