What? Enchant– The World’s Largest Christmas Light Maze & Christmas Market
When? Through December 31, 2017
Where? Globe Life Park- Lot F
The Christmas season brings out some of my favorite things: hot chocolate, Christmas trees, family gathering and lights. Lots and lots and lots of lights! Lights on trees, brightening houses, adorning buildings, and in the case of Enchant, making a maze into something a-MAZEing! 😉
My kids are 2 and 4 years old, so I went out on a limb to try Enchant by myself. I was drawn to the lights, the food truck park, and most of all, the ability to go to a holiday activity with time/date options OTHER than Saturday and Sunday. Enchant did not disappoint!
I chose to go on a Wednesday night at 5:00 because I thought it would be pretty slow. We beat traffic on the way to Arlington, parked easily in the free parking lots to the west of the event (*parking can be limited during AT&T Stadium Events) and buckled my kids into the stroller. The police directing traffic made it easy to get across the road and head into the park.
My kids were in awe! The sun was still up but the lights were still incredible. To top it off, there was fake snow falling from the sky!
We walked to the entrance, scanned my ticket and headed inside. First, we went straight to the food trucks to grab dinner. My girls chose pizza and I picked delicious brisket nachos. We sat at a lovely picnic table and watched the first round of ice-skaters while we ate. By the time we finished, the sun had set. Talk about a lovely sight with lights, music, “snow” and ice skating!
After dinner, we grabbed some cotton candy and headed to the maze. Upon entering the maze, the employees (who were incredibly kind and helpful) explained how the maze works. Santa’s reindeer went missing and we had to find them all! After finding the reindeer, a prize is waiting at the end of the maze.
A few warnings about the maze:
- It’s INCREDIBLY dusty and would surely turn to mud if wet.
- The maze has small spaces that little kids can fit through and adults cannot.
- A stroller was VERY helpful, but needs to be one that can handle off-road type riding.
After the maze, we received our prize: a lovely candy cane! Lastly, we stopped by Santa to say hello and take a few pictures. Be prepared for a little Elf photo-bombing! My kids were done after two hours, so it was time to head home. We didn’t get to look through the holiday market but it looked lovely.
