New owners of Santa's Village sprucing it up

Santa's Village's Polar Dome closed unexpectedly for a few weeks in late February, leaving people guessing about the 47-year-old amusement park's future. The investment group recently closed a deal on the park and, more importantly, on its 40-acre site along Illinois 25. The park's 50-year lease had been set to expire, but the new deal assures it will be able to stay open. Not only will the amusement park remain open, it will be renovated and expanded to include a hotel, tentatively named the North Pole Lodge, and indoor water park, said Hopp, whose partners' names have not been disclosed.

Kewl. I visited the park in 2002. Aside from the horrible Typhoon, I had a pretty good time.

Damn that Typhoon.

Anytime a park is saved from the wrecking ball it's good news. Here's to many years of prosperity! ;)
