Magical Nights of Lights is back at Lanier Islands with all new winter adventures added to one of Georgia’s best holiday light tours. We had a blast discovering new ways to spend the winter outdoors with Southern twists on classic cold-weather fun.
Upon arrival, we downloaded a new app that enhances the driving tour of light displays. The app plays music and stories as guests take in the unique animated lights. Interesting features include a Birds of Paradise area with animated hummingbirds and peacocks, Wizard of Oz themed lights with all your favorite characters, dinosaurs, and traditional holiday lights. Along the drive, guests can visit the live nativity scene presented by Cross Pointe Church.
Holiday Village & Carnival
The spectacular light displays lead straight to Santa’s Workshop and Winter Adventure inside LanierWorld’s Family Fun Park. Inside Santa’s Workshop, children meet Santa while festive elves capture the memorable moment in photos. Outside Santa’s Workshop, take an enchanting stroll through holiday village with snow falling from above. Peruse shops for Christmas gifts and enjoy fun-filled carnival rides.
A bubble-skating rink offers Southern-style “ice” skating with slippery bubbles instead of cold ice. The snow play area and a short tube-slide offer more chances for younger kids to enjoy the winter holiday. Finally, warm up and roast marshmallows around the large glowing fire pits.
Winter Adventure is not just for the little ones. Plenty of thrills await older teens and adults. The big kids speed along on tubes and sleds in a series of exciting slides, as well as zooming over the beach on the triple ziplines. Another new addition, Knockerball, really gets rambunctious as players BECOME bouncy balls themselves.
After all the excitement, sit for a spell in front of the impressive drive-in movie screen as it plays a wintry mix of family seasonal music videos and memorable moments from favorite holiday classics. Magical Nights of Lights and Winter Adventure is a can’t-miss tradition this holiday season.
