Exploring the world’s largest Christmas light maze
I could not have been more excited to get an invitation to review Enchant Christmas. I saw photos last year and was mesmerized by its beauty. I took my friend Morgan and had the most incredible time getting into the Christmas spirit!
Enchant is the world’s largest Christmas light maze, put on by SHINE. Of course the largest Christmas maze is in Texas, right? 2.5 million lights make up the dazzling exhibit. There’s an enormous Christmas tree with sparkling packages underneath, giant ornaments, light tunnels, and the best Christmas photo ops you’ve ever seen. You can easily spend hours exploring every nook and cranny inside the light maze. You can even expect snow inside Enchant, which positively delighted this Texan.
You can find it inside Globe Life Park (a baseball stadium) in Arlington, Texas and in Seattle, Washington during the holiday season. (For those who don’t know, Arlington is in between Dallas and Fort Worth.) General admission (starting at $29.99 for adults) includes the light maze, time with Santa and Mrs. Claus, live entertainment, and a stroll through the Christmas market with over eighty vendors for your holiday shopping enjoyment. Food and drink is not included with admission but there are numerous vendors to choose from, including my beloved Pudding on Smiles!
We walked four or five miles during our three hours at Enchant and we didn’t even really explore the Christmas market. In my opinion, you’ll want a minimum of two hours at Enchant but could easily spend a whole evening wandering merrily through Enchant, which is right on the baseball field this year. (Last year it was adjacent to the stadium.)
There are whole sections that we barely even explored: a plane that you actually climb up into, a larger-than-life light horse, toys that delighted the tiny tots around us, and more. It just goes and goes and goes. You think you’ve seen it all and then you turn a corner and find a whole new section.
My absolute favorite part of Enchant – besides the snow – was the tunnel full of hanging lights. We spent at least half an hour taking the most epic Christmas selfies of our lives. If you’re a picture-person like me, be sure to leave plenty of time for that part of the maze.
