Gather in the Grand Lodge

The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without a visit from Santa Claus in the Mistletoe Village. In the Grand Lodge, families can explore an array of holiday-themed activities included in a night’s stay. Make a gingerbread house with all the decorations you can find (and eat!), complete the scavenger hunt around the property, and get your photo taken with Santa. Mrs. Claus’ will be reading holiday classics underneath the Christmas Tree, and kids can make their Build-A-Bear complete with a holiday theme. In the morning, stop by for breakfast with some of your favorite holiday characters, including Rudolph.

Ice Tubing, Ice Bumper Cars, and Ice Skating

Enjoy outdoor activities with a little friendly competition. Circle around the ice-skating rink as a family as you discover the best skater or try the ice bumper cars that slide and spin across the ice. There will also be a 24-foot ice slide – fun for kids and those young at heart! Speed down the ice on one of four different lanes on inflatable tubes. After a day of fun, wander through the outdoor/indoor holiday lights. The LIGHT! experience has multiple colors and patterns along the walking path.
