Looking for something fun to do this holiday season? Check out Sacramento’s new Christmas light show “Enchant,” open all through December!

Located in Sutter Health Park in Sacramento, “Enchant” includes ice skating, light maze, scavenger hunt, food and drinks, and a Santa meet and greet. Tickets are $18 for adults and $10 for kids to enter. “Enchant” also has kids enter free on Wednesdays.

There are more than enough food and drink places around the stadium to cater to everyone’s cravings, and there’s even a cute kids mocktail that is served in a lightbulb-shaped cup that can also light up, which is located in the Tipsy Tree Lounge.

The light maze is packed with light shows and different activities for everyone to enjoy. Places to take pictures, a disco floor that changes colors when you step on the tiles, and a scavenger hunt that has kids looking all throughout the maze for Eddie the elf’s missing toys. If you find all the missing toys, you can enter into a raffle to get a chance to be on set at the new Hallmark Christmas movie. 

There’s even places to get snacks and drinks inside the maze, such as kettle corn, hot chocolate, and alcoholic beverages.

The maze has a 100-foot light up Christmas tree right in the center, and you can even walk around inside it as well while it changes colors.

There’s light up tunnels and trains you can walk through which are also very good picture opportunities, and there’s even workers (Santas helpers) that walk around and take the pictures for you for free if you ask.

Right next to the maze is the ice skating rink, which also has beautiful decorations located in the center of the rink.

You do have to pay for ice skating separately, however you get plenty of time to skate and the views of the maze on the rink are really pretty since you have a view inside the maze from the rink.

“Enchant” offers a Little Elfs play place where parents bring their kids to make crafts, play games and join Mrs. Claus while she reads her favorite Christmas books.

Right next to the play place is a Santa meet and greet. Let professional photographers capture the moment for you with Santa photo packages, and snap your own. It’s the perfect backdrop for your family Christmas card.

Lastly, there is Santa’s Village which includes tiny shops of local artisan vendors, specialty crafts, and boutiques to find that unique gift for a loved one. This is the perfect place to take a break from all the commotion down by the maze and ice skating rink and to just walk around and enjoy the Christmas ambiance all the shops have to offer.

“Enchant” is the perfect place to spend time with family and friends during the holiday season and is a very unique experience to cherish.
