During the holiday season, Dutch Wonderland transforms into a winter wonderland with holiday lights, seasonal shows, rides and Santa!

Dutch Winter Wonderland Castle

Upon arriving at Dutch Wonderland, you’ll see the castle is decked out with lots of lights! The fun begins immediately upon entering the castle gates, as the first ride is the train. The train will take your family among all of the lights and rides, and it’s best to ride after dark to see the beautiful lights throughout the park.

Dutch Winter Wonderland Rides

Dutch Winter Wonderland has over 20 themed rides open during the winter. Some of our winter favorites are the Turnpike Cars, Wonder Whip, and Sky Ride. Sky Ride is especially fun if you ride during The Royal Light Show. If you time it right, you’ll be able to watch thousands of lights twinkle and dance to music from above. It gives you a great view of the lights!

The Prehistoric Path is open during Dutch Winter Wonderland, and includes 20 life-like dinosaurs. During the holidays, the path includes holiday lights and the dinos are ready for the season with their Santa hats and scarves.

Dutch Winter Wonderland Food & Snacks

Enjoy some holiday treats while you take in the lights and the music of Dutch Winter Wonderland! The Mill Stream Eatery is open and has indoor seating if you need to warm up. There’s also the Potato Patch, as we always like to get our last order of Potato Patch fries for the season! S’mores stations are set up toward the back of the park near the Exploration Island bridge.

This separately ticketed event includes delicious holiday treats (cookie decorating, reindeer snacks, milk, hot cocoa, and coffee). You’ll get to eat in Merlin’s Restaurant with Santa Claus, Princess Brooke, The Knight of Safety, Merlin, and Duke the Dragon. Before this event is over, you’ll get to pose for a photo with Santa!
