Santa Land Drive Thru Light Experience, Tyler

Santa Land is a drive-thru Christmas Light Park in Tyler, but you can choose to leave your car and take the wagon-ride for a very hometown holiday experience!  We even caroled through the park with the music coming from speakers along the route! Santa Land opens November 6-7 for a Sneak Peek, then November 13-January 4th!

Before or after your tour, you can visit with Santa!

Know Before You Go

Make a potty stop before getting in line, especially with young children.  Santa Land has Port-A-Pottys, so you may want to find a place along the highway.

Santa Land sells hot chocolate in their store, which you can visit before or after your tour. Mask are required while getting concessions.  There is also a Starbucks just West on the Interstate, and a Collin Street Bakery in Lindale.

Expect long lines, especially on weekends!  Try to arrive early, if possible.
