Holiday with Lights returns to Wild Waves theme park

Wild Waves Holiday with Lights opens on Sunday, Dec. 3 and runs through Dec. 31.

The theme park will be open from 5-9 p.m. Dec. 3 and 10 and 5-10 p.m. Dec. 8-9, 15-23, and 26-31.

Carolers, Santa and his helpers from the North Pole will be on hand for an official tree lighting ceremony at 6 p.m. on Dec. 3.

The park will host a Toys For Tots toy drive on Dec. 3, 8, 9 and 10. Guests who bring a new, unwrapped toy to Wild Waves can purchase a $15 ticket for use the same day. Wild Waves will also accept toy donation during non-operating hours at the human resources building through Dec. 10.

Children can visit Toy Land to create special holiday crafts, write letters to Santa and then drop those letter in a unique “Direct to the North Pole” mailbox. Children also can meet Santa, given them their wish lists and get a picture.

Holiday with Lights features three new shows this year.

In “Toy Time Fun” Mrs. Claus has turned over Christmas party planning to two jolly toys, Ann and Andy. Despite the chaos and confusion, dancing and laughs ensure the party is a huge success.

“Joy! A Sweet Candy Adventure,” calls on the audience to help stop Jack Frost from keeping the candy makers at the North Pole from delivering delicious treats.

“Lights Aglow – Laser Spectacular,” features laser beams dancing on a giant projection screen and in the mist-filled air, surrounding guests are with colorful light, animated images and holiday music all perfectly choreographed to make sure everyone gets in the holiday spirit.

Also new this year, Mistletoe the reindeer will be on a special mission directly from Santa. Every year, Santa sends out a few select reindeer to learn about the true holiday spirit and work toward being the backup team for Santa’s sleigh. This year Mistletoe is working side-by-side with team members at Wild Waves to serve the guests. If he makes the cut, Santa will ask him to join his team of reindeer who will deliver presents all over the world. In order to show Santa how Mistletoe is doing, guests are encouraged to take pictures with Mistletoe and post on Twitter and Instagram with #HolidaywithLights @wildwavespark. On Dec. 23, Santa will make one last visit to the park to let Mistletoe know if he made the team.

Holiday with Lights also features a variety of treats – candy reindeer and snowman apples, specialty seasonal fudge, chili bread bowls, hot chocolate and steam coffee.
