The Winter Walk In Connecticut That Will Positively Enchant You
It’s time to replace the bathing suits with winter coats, but at Lake Compounce that doesn’t mean that all the fun is over. One of our favorite summer destinations turns into a magical winter wonderland complete with twinkling lights and holiday music. It is time to take an enchanting winter walk as you explore the Holiday Lights at Lake Compounce.
We expect something spectacular for the holidays from the oldest continuously running amusement park in the United States. Holiday Lights at Lake Compounce never disappoints.
Holiday Lights is full of festive activities to help you celebrate the holidays. Caroling, story time with Mrs. Claus, a lights show, and an ice carver making unbelievable creations are just a few of the things going on at this winter festival.
Holiday Lights features a lit Christmas tree that is 100 feet tall — the largest in Connecticut. It takes thousands of lights to decorate this massive tree.
You will definitely want to take a ride on the North Pole Railway. Who doesn't love a festive train ride during the holidays?
Other select rides like the carousel will be open at the amusement park as well — as long as the weather permits.
The oversized mailbox at Lake Compounce is ready to accept any letters that you have written to Santa. You can also decorate cookies and join in on other seasonal activities that are fun for the whole family.
Santa is available to visit at the park, and he is waiting to hear who has been naughty and who has been nice. You can also get your picture taken with this jolly fellow.
This enchanted winter walk also features a gorgeous light show set to holiday music favorites that you can see every half hour.
Holiday Lights is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from November 24th through December 30th. The hours are 5 to 9 p.m. on Fridays and 4 to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
Holiday lights is free with a 2017 or 2018 diamond or platinum season pass. If you don't have a season pass, tickets are $10.99 if you purchase online before November 24th. Otherwise, tickets are $15.99 each and $11.99 for children and seniors.
