Tips For Your Visit


This show is only 8-10 minutes long which is much shorter than Glittering Lights Drive-Thru Light Show (30-40 minutes). This is something to keep in mind especially if you are coming from the other side of town.

I do not feel it is worth the drive if you are more than 20 minutes away because it is so short.

Bring Your Own Hot Chocolate / Snacks

There are no concessions available. We recommend bringing your own hot chocolate and/or snacks.

No Need To Arrive Early

Since your time slot is selected when you purchase tickets, just come at that time. They’ll scan your ticket on your phone and you’ll be good to go right in.

No Restrooms On-Site

The show is only 8-10 minutes long, but there are no restrooms to get out and use.

Bring Your Own Light-Up Necklaces

Bring your own light-up necklaces from Dollar Tree if you’d like! They do offer them via their Party Pack, but it is pretty pricey. So we’d recommend bringing your own or skipping it altogether.

Party pack isn’t worth it in our opinion.

Windows Down, Dress a little Warm

We thought the view and experience at Christmas in Color was much better with the windows down. With that in mind it might get a little chilly, so just bring a light jacket if you get cold easily.

Overall Christmas in Color was a fun experience and we loved all of the light tunnels. We’d recommend it if you are near that area as we don’t feel it’s worth the drive if you are further away.
