Great for young kids

We visited Santa Park which is not to be confused with the free attraction up the road of a similar name. I had high hopes. My 5 year old through it was very good but my 9 year old didn't like it as much. Of course, my 9 year old is only just still a skeptical believer and so he could see that many of the activities were a bit contrived. However for younger kids it is absolutely wonderful. The elf school was quaint and fun, visiting Santa was nice (but extra to buy the photos which I thought was a bit rich!), and the little train was also fun. We paid extra (again!) for the certificate from the post office. We brought our own lunch and ate it in the cafe area, no-one seemed to mind. I was glad we did as the food seemed quite expensive. The visit with Santa was great, he looked very authentic and we didn't feel rushed at all. We did the train three times because the kids loved it so much. There is also a Angry Birds playground (seemed a bit random but I gather Angry Birds was a Finnish invention?) in the main area and free concerts by dancing elves etc. All great.
Overall I thought this was a good attraction to visit with kids up to say, 7 years old, and great rainy day activity. But I felt it was a little pricey for what you got and I think that they should consider including some of these other things (pictures, certificates) in your entry price.
