    Smile workshop/studio

    Visit SantaPark, which is located in a cavern 50 meters underground! Enjoy rides like Rudolph's Run and find out what it's like to skim over fields and forests with Santa on Christmas Eve. Nearby lies Santa's Village, where you can visit Santa in his office, or visit his workshop to find unique Christmas gifts.


    Could I use studio to replace workshop in the above? Thanks.

    I wouldn't use "studio" here.

    Studio is normally used to describe a place where artists paint, or musicians record music for example. It could also be used for sculptors working with wood.

    But, it's not used for places where things are made, workshop in this case takes on a meaning like "small factory" and is probably the best word to use. If you imagine Santa and his helper making the children's toys.
