Are you ready to experience an Enchant Christmas?

This post is sponsored by Enchant Christmas. All opinions are ours. For more information please see our disclosure statement. 

When we were invited to get a sneak peak at North Texas’ newest Christmas attraction to hit Arlington, we jumped at the chance.

Enchant Christmas is open to the public November 24th – December 31st, from 5pm – 11pm most evenings (check the calendar for exact opening dates and times)

What can you look forward to with your family:

  • Enjoy and look up to the 100ft Christmas Tree

Skate rental fees of $5 per person go to 5 local North Texas charities – Cook Children’s Health Care System, Kidd’s Kids, Make-A-Wish North Texas, and Special Olympics Texas

  • Check out the Main Stage – each evening, enjoy the different acts that come from miles around to entertain the audiences. We saw a Gospel choir on our visit.

 

  • Look out for the Carolers – the Uptown Carolers sing on request! Take yourself back in time to an age of Christmas wonder and sing along with them when you see them at various places around the Enchant Christmas set.

As you enter the Maze, look up and see Snow!

The Great Search Enchant Maze

  • Santa Claus in his own Palace – surrounded by lights!

We loved this Santa and his elf. Check out my daughter Lucy enjoying the whole experience with his palace full of awesome lights

Enter the World’s largest Christmas Light Maze and the kids can go hunting for the 9 Reindeers (Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen and of course, Rudolph) in exchange for Candy!

There are 3 acres of dazzling lights everywhere you look. Watch as your kids revel in the magic of it all!
