Santa’s Enchanted Forest, one of the world’s largest Christmas theme parks, has entertained families with more than 100 holiday-centric rides, shows, and attractions every winter for 29 years. Kiddies can bounce and crawl through inflatable structures, and families bond while whirling on spinning swings and bumper cars. Steel-stomached park-goers can test their fear-o-meters aboard the Crazy Mouse roller coaster and water flume ride or indulge in stationary activities such as face painting and visualizing oneself riding an actual roller coaster. Santa’s Enchanted Forest also invites guests of any age to participate in traditional Christmas pastimes including sitting on Santa’s lap, sending mail to the North Pole, and tickling live reindeer to see if they smile.
Christmas tunes swirl through the air as more than one million lights illuminate hand-crafted holiday displays and patrons washing down pizza slices with bubbly rivers of soda. Guests can kick-up feet during any of Santa’s Enchanted Forest’s nine eye-enticing shows or crunch popcorn or wisps of cotton candy as they stroll along the festive 30-foot mural that colorfully depicts the day Santa’s reindeer won their independence from the Easter Bunny.
Santa's Enchanted Forest
Giant toy soldiers clothed in thousands of colored lights wave at passersby as glowing reindeer take off into the dusk. Towering Christmas trees topped with stars glimmer and glisten with blue and green fiber optics. At Santa's Enchanted Forest, one of the world’s largest Christmas-themed amusement parks, holiday spirit and festive music fill the air long before the end of December. Visitors laugh and shriek on a multitude of carnival rides, including whirling swings, bumper cars, tower drops, and roller coasters, whipping through the air until their cheeks are as rosy as old Saint Nick’s. Traditional carnival games are also on hand, such as dart tosses and soccer-ball kicks, to complement more unconventional carnival amusements such as giant plastic balls to roll around in and a rock-climbing wall to scale. Wee visitors, meanwhile, can make the acquaintance of small livestock in a petting zoo or draw a portrait of their favorite goat in royal costume on a wall-size coloring-book mural. Carnival food, such as barbecue, pizza, and cinnamon donuts, fuels guests as they conquer rides or take in the Cats of the World Tiger Show, the Cirque Equinox, or the Sea Lion Splash Spectacular.
