Besides Hawaii, we have lived as a family in places I have been before. When we got orders to Colorado, I spoke fondly of this fun amusement park that is themed like the North Pole and a twisting slide ride that requires a burlap sack to sit on. Hubs thought I was crazy. But then, as we drove to Pike’s Peak, I was like “there it is! We have to take the kids!” It took a while but this past weekend was perfect weather so off we went.
This amusement park is perfect for little kids. All the kids could ride every single ride, either with an adult or solo. And no waits. Well, sometimes there was like a 3 minute wait but that’s only because the rides are grouped in 2-3 and for most of the rides, 1 worker was operating them all. I love rides – which is good because Hubs does not do rides – so I got to go on many of them as Blueberry is HYPE when it comes to rides but she is still on the short side. But like a good #InstagramHusband he took pictures of us which gave us some gems of me stuffing myself into tiny rides.
The park was a great little park for the kids. The restaurant had food that the kids ate and they had the classic stadium nachos that I can eat so we all were able to get a snack. While Santa is there year-round, except December 24th, we did not go visit him because I am 100% against Santa photos. Not just Santa, the Easter Bunny is on my no-no list too. They creep me out so I just imagine the kids get creeped out too. I may be wrong on that but whatever. Once they get older, they can tell me if they want to go or not.
So, if you’re ever in the Colorado Springs area, Santa’s Workshop is a good time for your little kids. They offer a military discount so that’s cool. You can also drive up to the top of Pike’s Peak and visit the Workshop all in one day as both activities won’t take up the entire day.
