Now, most of us are worried that we might be too old for something like this. Well, my son is 14 and I'm old, and we had the best time. We didn't worry about the cold--we just dressed for it. We didn't need a thrill a minute--we just had fun spending some rare time together. This is family fun, and we don't have enough of it these days.
Sometimes you just want to get out and have some fun. Sometimes when you work in a Christmas frenzied business like I do, you just want to take a minute and enjoy the season for once. This is a great way to do just that. You have to pay to get in, so no one is protesting the fact that you're celebrating Christmas. It's nice. You get to do something, eat a lot of Christmas junk food, like roasted chestnuts. It's calming and beautiful in a way. You can ride the carousel instead of the roller coasters, and it makes sense. That doesn't happen often after your kids start school.
The park is only open on the weekends from 5 to 9 on Fridays and 4 to 9 on Saturdays and Sundays, so you don't really have time to get bored or tired. The train trip around the lake is lined with light displays and there's the tale of Rudolph on the speaker for all to enjoy. You can even get 3D glasses at the gate that make all the lights look like candy canes or elves or whatever. It's cute, and we could all use a little of that in a world gone wild. If you're frugal about things like that, you can put the entrance fee towards a season pass in most parks. That makes it a bargain.
So, give it a try. Bundle up and head out into the cold to enjoy a theme park at Christmas. You'll be glad you did.
Merry Christmas and Enjoy!
