About the 2020 Show…

NOVA Parks is working hard to ensure the safest experience for you. Please be advised of the changes for the 2020 show prior to your visit.

All ice skating tickets must be purchased online due to the decreased quantity available. Click here to purchase your village and skating tickets. Need help? Don't worry, we can help you process your online ticket at the door with a credit card.

Skating ticket sales have been significantly reduced in order to provide adequate social distancing 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 are--benches are provided for putting on and removing skates only. All skate sessions will include FREE skate rentals. There is no discount if you bring your own skates this year.

Skate sessions will be 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 12-30) 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.

Masks are required in all areas of Ice & Lights. Masks may be removed when eating or drinking in the concession areas. 

Guests will not be allowed to congregate 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.

We apologize, but we will not have fire pits at the show but we will have additional heater poles available throughout the park. Please avoid congregating with others outside your party around the heater poles.

Igloos are not available for the 2020-2021 season due to COVID restrictions.

Please be sure to use hand sanitizer after touching any photo ops. Staff will be regularly disinfecting common touchpoints, concession areas, and restrooms.
