8 Hacks For Bringing Kids to Enchant Christmas

Have your gingerbread and eat it too.

We want this unforgettable night to be as fun as possible for families. Use this handy guide to get the most out of your Enchant Christmas experience with young ones!

  1. Kids under 3 are FREE.

That’s right, you can bring your little elf-in-training to the World’s Largest Christmas Light Maze for no cost. 

2) Bring a diaper bag you can easily carry with you.

Strollers will not be allowed in the Maze, down on the field. However, we will have a stroller valet available for no cost to all families. Plan to have a bag that you can carry any personal items in after you leave the stroller at the valet. All bags and purses must be 16"x16"x8" or smaller, however, Enchant will make accommodation for diaper bags.

3) Go VIP and take all the guesswork out of your evening

With the VIP ticket you get to skip the line with exclusive access to the front entrance and Ice Skating Trail, and enjoy an all-you-can-eat gourmet dinner and delectable dessert bar in the private VIP lounge! The kids will love the food and experience, and you can relax knowing that everything will be easily available to you.

4) Get a Family 4-Pack of tickets and save 

If VIP doesn’t sound right for you, a Family 4-Pack of tickets may be just the option for you. Offering great value, it’s perfect for bringing the whole family to the event. A family pack includes two adults (14+) and two youth (14-17) or child (4-13) tickets. If there are additional family members to arrange tickets for, those additional tickets can be purchased individually and added to your family pack. Just include those additional single ticket needs in your order at check-out.

5) Reserve your arrival window ahead of time

Enchant requires visitors to reserve their arrival window for entrance to the maze. Because of this, it’s important to book your desired arrival window well ahead of your planned visit so you can guarantee a visit at a time that works best for you and the kids. Once you’re inside, you may stay as long as you would like. If you choose to go during Merry Hour, the last ticket window, make sure you skate first as the lines get long and if you wait, you may not get your turn on the Skating Trail before it closes!

6) Kids begging for a dog for Christmas? We got you.

We know it’s not going to happen, they know it’s not going to happen, but they still ask. Bring your kids on December 1 and 16 to see us during our Paws N’ Claus event. Plenty of visitors will be bringing their dogs so your kids can watch them while you enjoy the lights! Easy and cute!

7) Get everything on your Christmas checklist done in one place.

Visit our whimsical Christmas Market packed with local artisan vendors to get your holiday shopping done, visit Santa for the perfect photo-op (and Christmas card stuffing!), take the kids ice skating, and enjoy the World’s Largest Christmas Light Maze all in one place. 

8) Only Season Pass holders are allowed re-entry

Season Pass holders are able to come in and out of the event and are allowed to reserve time on any day they like, and for as many dates as they like. If you have the type of family who will want to come back or tackle one activity at a time, this is a great option!
