The Drive-thru will feature more than a million lights twinkling along with popular Christmas songs, allowing guests to get a unique look at the Titan Missile, the 199-foot-tall Discovery Center, the settlement of log cabins and more, all decorated for the holidays.

The “Let It Glow” Walk-thru will take place on the north side of the park, which will once again be transformed into the “North Pole.” The size of the Walk-thru has doubled this year, so leave plenty of time to explore. At the entrance, guests will find food and beverages for sale before they take a stroll through the Settlement, Japanese Garden, European Garden and Mill Ridge, which will all be transformed into a glowing winter wonderland with plenty of opportunities for taking photographs. Once guests arrive at Mill Ridge, they will find a shop with local handmade gifts for sale, Rudolph’s Barn, an area in the Smithy for children to write letters to Santa and, new this year, a large display of more than 150 nutcrackers on loan from Edith Adcock of Martin, Tennessee. Adcock received her first nutcracker as a gift for her 16th birthday and has been collecting them for more than 45 years.
