Will there be long lines?
Sometimes. On and around holidays are the busiest times at Holiday Light and Magic. Weekends are also popular. On these nights, you can expect wait times to be near or sometimes even exceed 1 hour. Please plan restrooms (included onsite), snacks (often included onsite), and activities accordingly. You can download our official app beforehand to help pass the time – Jack Frost’s Winter Blast – available on the App Store and Google Play.
Why do we have to buy timed slots?
The timed slots allow us to funnel traffic more efficiently. That means shorter lines for everyone!

Yes! Many of the lights are synchronized to the music. You will only need an FM radio in your vehicle to hear the songs.
