Merry Texas Christmas Y’all! If you’ve ever wondered what a country-style Christmas was like, then Santa’s Wonderland in Texas is the perfect stop during your Texas vacation. Open now until December 30th, this magical event combines food, live music, carriage and hayrides, and lots of snow to give you a jam-packed holiday experience.
See the Lights
One of the best parts about the Christmas season is seeing how everyone has decked out their decorations to the nines. Santa’s Wonderland is no exception, and they offer two ways to enjoy their spectacular light displays. You can go traditional and hop on a hayride, or step it up and enjoy the luxury of a horse-drawn carriage ride with hot cocoa and Christmas tunes to set the mood.
Y’all Play in the Snow?
It’s not every day that snow comes to Texas, and in Santa’s Wonderland, you can take full advantage of wintertime activities. Grab a tube and cruise around Frostbite Mountain or race a friend down the twin roller lanes of Frostbite’s Toboggan Chute! At night you can snap the perfect holiday photo with falling snow made by Wonderland’s mighty snow machines.
Santa’s Wonderland is full of family-friendly activities to share with your kids. Have a meet and greet with Mr. and Mrs. Clause, and snap a photo with Marshall Frostbite, a cuddly 7-foot snowman. Then have a wild experience with some of the local wildlife a the Wonderland petting zoo, where you can go on a pony ride or get a selfie with a real Texas Longhorn.
