Shadracks Christmas Wonderland
Have you found yourself beginning to hum your favorite Christmas carols? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone, it is the most wonderful time of the year after all! Are you ready to see twinkling lights, decorate the house and tree, shop til you drop, drink hot cocoa by the fireplace, watch your favorite holiday movies (thanks hallmark!), sing along to festive tunes, and more? There is something so magical about the holiday season. It’s when your inner child gets to come out and celebrate all the excitement that is going on around you. It’s the time when you see a bit more kindness and even more love in the air (and maybe even a little snow!) This is finally when you and your family get to spend some well deserved time together. Nothing beats getting to reminisce about fond memories from the past with your loved ones and even create some new ones to add to the list. One of my favorite family holiday traditions is going out to see all the dazzling lights whether it’s just walking around the neighborhood, cruising down the parkway, or visiting an extra special place that is sure to put you in the Christmas spirit. If this is also a tradition in your family and you just so happen to be visiting Pigeon Forge, we have just the spot for you to check out. Are you ready to see our very own version of a winter wonderland that will feature thousands of twinkling lights? Let’s take a look at Shadracks Christmas Wonderland, your new favorite spectacle to visit this winter!
If you’ve been to Pigeon Forge before then you may already know about this special place, but if you haven’t, this must be on your itinerary. If you’re looking for the best place to visit to see Christmas lights, decor, and more – Shadracks Christmas Wonderland is just the place you’ve been hoping for. Located at the Tennessee Smokies Baseball Stadium (3540 Line Drive, Kodak TN 37764), this location completely transforms into the biggest holiday extravaganza you’ll see in our area. Best of all? This is one you can drive through, so no walking necessary if you want to relax those legs after a busy day out and about shopping for the holidays. You’re probably wondering what this place is all about, well sit back and enjoy finding out all about this beloved event. From now until January 6th, you and the family can gather up in the car and head over to the stadium. Once you arrive, you will be immersed into a magical Christmas wonderland. You will see handcrafted and custom made displays and thousands of lights that actually dance to a choreographed set of songs that you will find on your car’s radio on a specific station. This was created by a group of people that truly have a great love for the holidays and for making people smile, so you know it’ll be something fantastic and worth seeing for yourself.
Prices do vary depending on the vehicle. When you pull up, you can pay by cash or credit cards right on-site. It’s $25 for a vehicle that holds 8 passengers or less, $40 for limos or half busses, and $80 for tour or school busses. They’re open Monday – Friday 6-10 pm and Sat – Sun 6-10 pm or later depending on their business. They are even open on holidays and if it’s raining, the show still goes on! You are instantly greeted by festive decor showing off our favorite thing to see during the winter months – lights! As we discussed earlier, the LED lights dance around to all kinds of Christmas classics that you’ll find on a designated radio station that they will tell you about when you arrive. You’ll be absolutely delighted getting to see the synchronized twinkling lights take over your vision as you sing along to your favorite carols with the people you love the most. New this year, we’re getting an extra GIANT treat. There will be a new North Pole display that will feature some of our Christmas favorites. We’re talking Santa and all his friends! These huge and colorful displays are sure to bring out the holly jolly spirit and we can’t wait to see them. This might just become your new Christmas staple and it’s definitely one that won’t disappoint. Nothing beats getting to see your family’s faces light up as you’re on your journey of lights.
One of the best parts about this attraction is that it isn’t just all lights, they also have a few more special goodies in store for us. With your paid admission to the light show, you receive a free visit to Santa’s Workshop! It will be open until December 23rd and here is where you’ll find all kinds of family fun. If you have some younger kiddos with you, you may want to get out and walk around for a bit, and this is definitely the best place to do so. They will have visits with Santa where you can buy photo packages (starting at $24.99), so make sure your kids know what they want for Christmas, he’ll be asking! There will also be a petting zoo and it’s only $2 to see and feed all the animals. Are you ready for my favorite part? They have pony rides for only $5, so get your cameras ready. Are you a big fan of hot chocolate, fresh kettle corn, and more? Their food vendors are probably calling your name already.
