I dd ride the balloon ride because they wanted me to as it was the first ride we rode. Brian can't ride it because it spins around.
I love Natalie's "I'm too cool for this ride" look in the first picture. The second time we went to Santa's Village they didn't even ride this ride because it was too tame!
Santa's Village has 5 new rides this year, two of which are roller coasters. The biggest roller coaster was closed when we went the first time-it looked like they were trying to get it working right as they kept running cars. When we went the second time there was a sign by it that said permanently closed. There was another ride that wasn't open either time we were there-they were still building it. The one roller coaster that was open, the Wiggle Worm (or something like that), was N2's favorite. They would get off, run from the exit to the entrance and ride it again over and over again. They did this both times we went to Santa's Village.
One of new rides is a drop. Natalie was not tall enough to ride it and Noah was tall enough to ride it with an adult so Brian rode with him. I took a video but I took it sideways! Oh well. Noah did like it but he only rode it once the first day we went so I don't think he really enjoyed it.
There are bumper cars now which N2 are not tall enough to drive so Brian and I had to drive them so I didn't get any pictures of those. N2 love bumping into other people! N2 could drive the antique cars (although the second time they wouldn't let Natalie drive).
Here are just some random pictures of them riding rides.
They had such a great time!
