Santa's Village is re-opening May 27, 2011! The family owned park has been renovated and now combines an amusement park with a zoo (hence, "azoosment"). They even were able to acquire rides from Kiddleland! So it will definitely create some nostalgia for Chicagoans.

Sometimes there are even membership discounts if you join before a certain date, so check them out early! I have also listed the country clubs if you are interested.
