The 3rd Day of August

Santa Claus Land, how cool would this place have been back then!

Louis J. Koch visited the town of Santa Claus, Indiana, United States. Upset that children came to a town named Santa Claus only to be dismayed when Santa Claus wasn’t there. So on August 3, 1946 the world’s first themed amusement park was opened in Santa Claus, Indiana, United States by Koch. Santa Claus Land opened, there was no entry cost and the park offered a Santa, a toy shop, toy displays, a restaurant and themed children’s rides, one of which was The Freedom Train.
