Features & Attractions

All ice skating tickets must be purchased online in order to provide a great skate experience. Click here to purchase your village and skating tickets.

Skating ticket sales have been significantly reduced in order to provide a safe experience on the ice. Please be advised that spectators will be limited in the ice rink area. ONLY children under the age of 12 may have ONE chaperone in the ice rink area--benches are provided for putting on and removing skates only. All skate sessions include FREE skate rentals. There is no discount if you bring your own skates this year.

Skate sessions are limited to one hour, starting with your ticket time. All skaters will receive a colored sticker that signifies their skate time. At the end of the hour, the ice will be cleared, rental skates must be returned in order to complete cleaning procedures, and cleaning and resurfacing procedures will begin for the ice rink.

Upon Arrival at Ice & Lights:
Please purchase your tickets in advance for a no-touch entry option. 

Please remain in your vehicle until your ticket time or until the outside line subsides to allow you to wait safely on the sidewalk for entry. Please practice social distancing when waiting in line.

If you are skating, we encourage you to arrive 15 minutes prior to your ticket time (times may be longer on peak nights--December 10-30) to allow time to enter the show, get your skates, and be ready to enter the ice on time to get the full value of your 1 hour skate time. You do not need to arrive early for the first skate block.

Please avoid congregating outside the entrance or throughout the show. We encourage you that if you are meeting others that you coordinate a meeting point in the parking lot and do not enter until all guests in your party arrive.

In order to speed entry, please have your tickets pulled up on your device with your brightness maximized. If you have paper tickets, please have all the scannable areas available for the ticket attendant.

Staff will be regularly disinfecting common touchpoints, concession areas, and restrooms.

Retail is available for purchase at Ice & Lights. Please be sure to visit the Cabanas to see all the light up fun!

Visit Slice & Ice for hot chocolate, pizza, donut holes and more!  Bundle up to enjoy Dippin’ Dots, too!

Nice alternative to drive-thru light parks. Big enough outdoor space that it feels COVID safe. Highly recommended for families as an easy, fun seasonal activity. You will leave with lots of photos.

Loved watching families and couples taking photo ops and even laying on the ground looking up at all the lights! Awesome place to take the kids! Much better than sitting in a car looking at the lights. This was an experience!
