It was a relatively small park, but had dozens of attractions (a 1963 promotional magazine listed 75 individual attractions, spread out in 14 themed areas). Among the features were historical exhibits, futuristic space-themed areas, rides, sports and games. It also featured a roller coaster called the Stratoboggan, which was a major draw.
In 1963, the Habsburg Hippodrome (also known in later years as the Touray Ballroom) opened at Santafair. This 700 seat venue played host to numerous acts during the 1960s, including big band performances, local rockers, and even a concert by Ricky Nelson on January 30, 1970. The building was designed as a replica of the 3rd Century hippodrome in Constantinople.
