One ticket to the Christmas Lights Drive-Thru is good for one vehicle to drive-thru the Christmas Lights Drive-Thru.

Yes, please. Each ticket is assigned a 30 minute time window to ensure that traffic flows smoothly and so that you don’t have to wait longer than necessary. Please arrive as close to the beginning of the start time on your ticket to minimize your wait time.

Yes! Our concessions team will offer you the opportunity to purchase freshly popped kettle corn, water or a light stick while you are sitting in the first part of the Drive-Thru. Purchases can be made with cash or credit card.

92.9 FM is the radio frequency to hear the Christmas music that accompanies the light show.

Get ready to enjoy Christmas lights in a whole new way! You’ll drive through our parking lot while viewing thousands of dazzling light displays set to your favorite holiday music. Your experience begins on Stanford Ranch Road in front of the entrance arch. You will line up on the street and will be welcomed by a member of our ticketing team. Have your mobile device or print-out ready to have your ticket scanned. Tune your radio to 92.9 FM to hear the Christmas music that is synced to the lights. You’ll enter the lower staging lot where your car will be lined up to enter the drive-thru. While you’re in line, our concessions team will give you the chance to purchase some freshly popped kettle corn or a light stick for the kiddos while you enjoy a lighting show timed to Christmas music. Be prepared to wait 5-10 mins until your car is released. Once released you will drive-thru several themed “lands” that will immerse you in Christmas lights, music and the true meaning of Christmas.

The Christmas Lights Drive-Thru is open Sunday-Thursday from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM and Friday & Saturdays from 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM. Blackout dates are November 25, December 10, 18, and the 22-25th.

Porta Potties are available at the beginning of the Drive-Thru if you need to use a restroom while waiting for the show to begin.
