I was able to get to the site.

Commercialism and Christmas need a divorce.

Humans have to stop behaving so badly..I think we all should just do it the old fashioned way...make your own gifts, give to those that need , food, warmth, story telling and just plain old visiting with each other. Now that is what it is truly about, eh?

It just shows the way the world is going. To do something like this at Christmas time is deplorable. Noted thanks Kat. Will forward now.

Utterly,tediously cheap and shallow. People have become completely clueless and it's rubbing off on their kids. Sad.

Noted & Thank you Kat
I agree with Pamylle G. Commercialism needs to step out of this one Special Holiday.
and Let Christmas be shown the real meaning of Christmas.

Hi Kat, I read about this 'Lapland' (they're also calling it 'Crapland') in our UK papers this week,bizarre.I feel most sorry for the kids and the staff who always get the brunt of stuff like this.

now the "mother" will go to jail, but what will happen to this poor girl?? i mean 2 years of her life being treated like this, being under drugs, i can't imagine her ever being a happy person again, how can she ever forget or get over this??? poor little girl!!!

poeple are so greedy and moeny hungry. how did these idiot jerks think they would get away with such a hoax and steal from the customers. I think the whole group of parents should have taken santa and his helpers out back and gave them a good old fashioned whomping.

They've closed it down now,people are annoyed because they've forked out and turned up and can't get in. To top it all apparently there was a stroppy security guard on the gate shouting 'Santa's Dead!' Upsetting the kids.
