The Great Christmas Light Show is a park-wide lighted celebration that is sure to capture the true spirit of the season! The drive through light show will feature over 2 million lights festively displayed along a 1.5 mile drive throughout the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex. Over 500 magical light displays, some up to 55 feet tall, have been custom made for The Great Christmas Light Show. Visitors will experience 20 enchanting animated figures and holiday scenes where the lights will come to life. NEW this year, a section of lights come alive to synchronized music. The drive through light show is open nightly November 24 – December 31 (closed Christmas Day).
After the journey through the light show, we invite everyone to park their car and visit Santa’s Village where they can enjoy hot chocolate and s’mores, get an up close look at the lights on the Santa Express Train Ride, experience the Go Ape lighted tree top adventure, go tubing down Santa’s new 40″ inflatable slide and, of course, meet Santa! The Santa’s Village is open Friday and Saturday only from November 24-December 9. Opens nightly December 15-31 (closed Christmas Day).
Ripley’s Aquarium Festival of Trees features more than 75 beautifully decorated and themed Christmas trees.

Don’t miss the free scavenger hunt that tests your knowledge about each state’s tree. The price is included with aquarium admission.
