Inside Santa's Candy Castle


Santa's Candy Castle is a magical place for anyone who holds the spirit of Christmas dear to their heart. The historic castle, which has hosted millions of visitors from all over the world, offers a unique experience unlike any other.

Log in to our exclusive North Pole Network, an interactive computer lab for kids that is directly connected to the North Pole. You’ll be able to chat with an elf, tell Santa what you want for Christmas and find out if you’re on Santa's Good List. If you make Santa's Good List, you'll be able to take home an official Good List Certificate to show your family and friends. 

Indulge your senses with a wonderful selection of gourmet confections including handmade fudge, turtles, toffee, caramels, peanut brittle, and many other favorites. Santa's Candy Castle offers more than a dozen unique flavors of salt water taffy and more than a dozen flavors of gourmet popcorn.

Enjoy a trip down memory lane with our huge selection of retro and hard-to-find candy. We have many of your childhood favorites like candy buttons, wax bottles, candy cigarettes, pop rocks, wax lips, rock candy, Astro Pos, Zotz, Fruit Stripe gum, Black Jack gum and many, many, many more.  We love how often we hear guests say "Wow, I remember this!".

Looking for something new and unique?  The castle has some of the newest and most innovative novelty candy products to hit the market. Tomorrow's classics are being introduced today at Santa's Candy Castle. We also love how often we hear, "Wow, I never saw this before!"

Looking for an impossible-to-find candy? We have many of the candies that you may have seen on the latest viral Tik Tok and YouTube videos. We also love how often we hear, "I've been looking EVERYWHERE for this!"

Our cocoa is an absolute must-try. We guarantee that you'll find a flavor to love in our critically-acclaimed 35 flavor line-up of gourmet hot chocolate. And our frozen hot chocolate is nothing short of legendary. It's available in 16 oz individual servings or in a gigantic 1/2 gallon version called the Avalanche - which is the world's largest cocoa beverage. Share one with the family, or if you're brave enough: finish one yourself for a place on our Wall of Fame. Feeling really adventurous?  Take on our legendary Fire & Ice Challenge that was featured on Man v. Food.  The challenge requires finishing a full pound of our super-spicy cheddar cheese popcorn (Fire) and a 1/2 gallon of our Frozen Hot Chocolate (Ice) within one hour. 

Step into an entire room dedicated to PEZ, boasting one of the largest retail selections of PEZ available anywhere.  From individual dispensers featuring popular movie characters & sports teams, to mini backpack clip dispensers, to giant dispensers, to special limited-edition sets perfect for gift-giving - if PEZ makes it, we probably have it.

The castle also features an entire room of Jelly Belly products and merchandise.  With unique & innovative flavors, packaging with popular licensed brands, and outrageously fun products like Beanboozled, Jelly Belly is an amazingly unique candy brand.  And the castle's extensive Jelly Belly selection will not leave you disappointed.

Before you leave, find the perfect Christmas gift for that hard-to-buy-for person on your Christmas list or pick up a souvenir of your trip to Santa Claus, Indiana. The castle has a large selection of Christmas books all discounted 40% to 80% off publisher’s prices, a great selection of locally-made Christmas ornaments & magnets, and postcards perfect for obtaining the famous Santa Claus, Indiana postmark.

Santa’s Candy Castle offers a magical experience for everyone in your family. And as it’s been since 1935, admission to Santa’s Candy Castle is free. We look forward to seeing you at the castle!

*COVID-19 RELATED CHANGES: Santa's Candy Castle has made significant changes in order to remain operational during the COVID-19 pandemic. We ask our guests to follow current CDC guidelines on masks (masks are currently optional). Separate entrance & exits are being utilized to help facilitate social distancing. Plexiglass barriers have been installed at point of sale. Complimentary hand sanitizer is available. The North Pole Network computer lab has been removed and is temporarily unavailable. The dining room tables & chairs have also been removed, so inside consumption of candy & beverages is on hold, including product samples and the Avalanche and Fire & Ice Challenges. While these unexpected changes are less than ideal, our guests have shared overwhelmingly positive feedback about the improved traffic flow through the castle and our greatly-expanded candy selection, both of which were made possible by the additional space.  We continue to accept cash, credit cards (swipe, chip, and tap), as well as Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay.
