Enjoy a magical evening in the warmth of your vehicle as you drive through large animated displays while listening to holiday music on your car radio. See the sights and sound of an erupting volcano in the dangerously fun dinosaur den, cheer on Santa shooting hoops, wave at a pen of playful penguins, watch blazing pirate cannons and sail through a tunnel of moving lights. Over 50 themed displays and a 90-foot twinkling tree will have you "oohing and aahing" throughout the journey. See all this and much more!
First presented in 1999, Fantasy of Lights is now in its 18th year and has become a cherished holiday tradition. It is bigger, better and brighter than ever before, thanks to the transition to environmentally friendly LED displays.
Experience Fantasy of Lights via the traditional drive-thru or join us for one of two nights of walk-thru magic: you and yours can stroll through the park while enjoying the sights and sounds of the holidays, with carolers, cocoa, and so much more!
