FAMILY FUN ANNOUNCED AT SKYPARK AT SANTA’S VILLAGE
Southern California Theme Park Offers Fall Guests Mountain Biking, Pumpkins, and Fantasy Fun
Skyforest, California (8/17/2021) – SkyPark at Santa’s Village today announces its Pumpkins in the Pines October festivities lineup. After its busiest summer ever, SkyPark at Santa’s Village welcomes Fall guests to a variety of fun weekend activities, from pumpkin patches to cookie decorating and crafts, to a community sponsored trick-or-treat event and costume party.
“This isn’t your average Pumpkin Patch,” says Michelle Johnson, SkyPark at Santa’s Village’s Creative Director. “We love Fall and it’s reflected in our changing-of-the-seasons Fall decor and pumpkins throughout the park. We’ve made Pumpkins in the Pines the mountain top day-destination, family friendly Fall festival with special characters, seasonal food, and Fall themed activities you won’t find anywhere else!”
The Coachworks Pumpkin Patch will give guests a chance to find the perfect pumpkin. Choose the perfect pumpkin and paint it in Santa’s Workshop. The Monster Mash Light Show will enchant guests throughout the park with colorful lights and Halloween music. In the evening, the Fantom Forest will thrill guests with a unique walk-through haunted hike. Seasonal characters and special shows and experiences will also be featured throughout the park, including Wacko the Magician, the Sleepy Hollow Puppet Show, and much more! Seasonal treats will be available throughout the park.
“We just had our best and busiest summer ever,” says Bill Johnson, Co-Owner of SkyPark at Santa’s Village. “SkyPark at Santa’s Village is all about outdoor adventure in an alpine setting, and we’re providing that experience through Fall and into Winter. Our unique combination of outdoor fun and generally pleasant weather is really resonating with guests who still want to have family adventures. As far as I know, we’re the only park that offers mountain biking, forest hiking, Santa, skating, axe throwing, archery, and pumpkins in a winter wonderland theme park. We even do weddings and forest conservation. If you’re looking for a unique theme park and Fall activities, come check us out.”
