The North Pole Colorado

I know its October but this is one of the places I wanted to take Mason before PCSing next month. This place is located by the entrance to drive up to Pikes Peak. Here is their website and where you can get all the info at. This month they where running a special for Military families so I joined up with two other military mamas and took the kiddos. This was a perfect place for my five year old. He was able to get on all the rides either by himself or with an adult.  We went on a Friday so we hardly had to wait in any lines and he was able to ride multiple times.Im sure it gets very busy in December. We packed our own lunch and they had picnic tables to sit at. They have food on site but I figured it was cheeper to pack and by the time our friends got their food we where done eating so we did not waste anytime waiting on food. Also when we went it was cold so make sure to dress in layers. The rides are a lot like carnival/fair rides but your entrance pays for unlimited rides. No cash is exchanged inside the the park, instead they give you a ticket for each person in your party and when you buy food or souvenirs the cashiers writes in down on your ticket. On your way out you must return EVERY ticket even if they where not written on it and thats when you pay for everything at ounce. I like this idea so you don't have multiple charges on your card but kinda sticks you have to keep up with these cards.  Not sure what they would do if you lost it. If you like Christmas ornaments on your way out they have an awesome selection of ornaments. They have ornaments at the gift shop, the post office, ornament shop (they have the most) and at the entrance of the park. I was able to find a porcelain Santa elf on sale for $5. They also a boys gift shop and a girls gift shop. We went to the boys side they had cars, train, LEGOs, guns, candy....everything little boy like! Enjoy the pictures and would love to know what yall think about this place.
