Looking for an affordable and unique way to celebrate the holiday season with family and friends? Santa’s Village has just the activity to spark some merry and bright cheer! Our new Magical Christmas Drive-Thru Experience is immersive fun for the whole family. This light show is one for the books, from its affordability and flexible hours of operation to delicious snacks and photo opportunities!

1. Immersive Fun

Santa’s helpers have been busy transforming our park into a festive winter wonderland! From the comfort of your car, enjoy over 2 million lights synchronized to holiday music for a dazzling display. Even experience live animals and Santa himself as you drive through our spectacular park.

At the end of your drive-thru experience, you’ll be able to purchase funnel cakes and hot chocolate while taking in the breathtaking view of our park in all of its lighted glory!

2. Weather

The temperatures will continue to drop as we move towards the holiday season. While other holiday and winter activities require you to brave the elements, our enchanting drive-thru experience will take place from the comfort of your car. If it does snow, the white blanket adds an extra festive touch and helps to make the lights look that much brighter. Still, do bundle up and dress for the weather because you will be able to step out of your vehicle for photo-ops and to purchase hot chocolate and funnel cakes.   

3. Flexible Schedule

Our Christmas Drive-Thru Experience will be available starting November 26 and will continue on every Thursday – Sunday until December 19. The drive-thru is open from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Thursdays and Sundays and from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Fridays and Saturdays, which gives your group ample time to coordinate schedules and plan around other evening activities. Advance ticket purchases are recommended for this experience, and once you book, the time you’ve chosen is the beginning of a 30-minute entry window in which your vehicle must be checked in.

4. Affordability

Our Magical Christmas Drive-Thru is only $20 per car when you purchase tickets online! So, grab your grandma, grandpa, best friends, cousins, and all your loved ones, and pile into your cars and make the trip over to East Dundee!
