Todd, a customer from Richmond, Virginia said, “Each year we’ve gone to Santa’s Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops they’ve added, changed, or just made it different for my three children. The number one reason my kids want to go is Santa – probably the best Santa in Richmond. Probably the best Santa my wife and I’ve seen in years!”
