What do Guests say about the experience?

“The best day of my life” that’s what my six-year-old daughter called it. The experience for her was awesome. Everyone was very cheerful and kid friendly.”

"So much joy and magic..."

“So much joy and magic is taken out of the holidays nowadays, but Kringle’s Inventionasium is the one place we find it year after year. It was truly a beautiful experience for our family. We look forward to our annual trip to visit Mr. Kringle and his friends.

"The Characters are outstanding!"

“It just gets better every year!! We traveled from Chicago again this year and weren’t disappointed! The Characters are outstanding and make the whole experience truly memorable and believable. We had an eight-year-old with us this year that was on the brink of not believing anymore, but after going through the Inventionasium, he spent the remainder of our trip making wishes and trying to invent new toys for Mr. Kringle.”

"Ever..."

This was the best Santa experience ever. Looking at the sparkle in my kids’ eyes (especially my six-year-old son) as they listened intently to the characters made my husband lean over and say in my ear “totally worth it.”

The Real Deal

“We did the exclusive tour with our four & six-year-old. They progressively got more into the experience as we went. I had prepared them that it was just one of “Santa’s helpers,” but he was so awesome to them and perfect that they came out sure that “this was the real Santa.”
