When we first enter Santaville, there is a small candy counter which is one of the original structures built;



Santa's Castle is next door, and lets children visit with old Saint Nick whenever the park is open'



The North Pole is not complete without an elf bunkhouse and the workshop;



The reindeer are off training, but their barn is ready;



The train station stands as the tallest structure in the park;



Guests have to cross the tracks to get to the newer area of the park. First up is the beautiful carousel;



More soon!

I love the whiteness of the carousel. With all the gingerbread detailing and the red & green roof panels it looks striking. And the carousel horse placed high on top lets the guests see the ride from a distance and tells them what the ride is. :up:

Ahh, I love the carousel!

The workshop has recolourable horses... I suppose you could stick snowman arms on them to make temporary reindeer?  I have a hunch some clever people will give us real reindeer eventually.

Very nifty.  Glad to see you actually put the elf sweatshop out there for all to see ;)

You know, it occurs to me that the PC calendar jumps from 31 October directly to 1 March so Christmas never comes for the poor peeps.  How do you work around that?

That raises more questions than it answers.  Is Spongebob part unicorn?  How is he related to Willy Wonka?  Inquiring minds want to know ;)

BTW, have you considered submitting this to the Frontier contest?

I can't. I used many objects and structures from the workshop.

I like the name of your Scrambler ride. Sorta like "Tinkerbell in a Blender". :P  Really nice looking gingerbread covered bridge, too. :up:

Thanks! I actually posted the wrong pics for the sleigh ride!

I covered the tracks;

Wow, even better! It's funny, in my post above, I almost said (in jest): "You shoulda covered the tracks! And attached a horse to that sleigh!"... I'm still waiting for the horse.

Thanks again!

Set in the early 1960s, Santaville is supposed to remind you of those old regional parks that dotted the U.S. landscape. North Pole USA in Colorado is still around today as an example.

Blueprints from Fisherman and CTRSind are included. The coaster and the carousel ride skin are also workshop items, but I deleted the originals, so I do not know who to credit. The ice rink and pond in the sled ride use a billboard image of skating ice. You can find any old ice image online.

I may update this park at a future date to reflect a more "modern" version of the park. Thank you for looking over my park, and Happy Holidays!

I just took a stroll through Santaville, and it was so charming. It really put me into the Christmas spirit. I enjoyed the sleigh ride and laughed when I say the melted snowman. I guess he was too close to that tree covered with string lights. It must have put off quite a bit of heat.

It's a great little Christmas park. Hopefully the park will expand with some new additions for next year's holiday season. :)

The charm continues (and yes, the snow-covered tracks are better :))

I, too, was thinking "Tinkerbell in a blender" :D
