Four Reasons to Treat Yourself to a Santa’s Season Pass

Santa’s loves its Season Pass holders. If you haven’t purchased your Early Elf Season Pass yet, here’s four reasons to do just that.

UnlimitedFun

1. Unlimited fun. A one-day ticket to Santa’s Enchanted Forest includes all carnival rides, but with so much to do, you’ll want to experience many of those thrills again and again. A Season Pass gets you unlimited access to all that fun!

2. Flexibility. Bring the little kids for an hour or two. Let the teenagers hit the rides for all seven. With a season pass, you have the option to pop in just to enjoy the magic of the Christmas tree spectacular and satisfy your craving for carnival food or plan an outing for the entire evening.

3. Park Perks. Season pass holders get special perks, including discount coupons to use inside the park and other exclusive offers throughout the season. We’ll send you deals for Black Friday, an invite to bring a friend at a discounted price and VIP express pass opportunities for a steal.

4. New Attractions. Santa’s is celebrating it 35th anniversary in a BIG way with spectacular NEW rides, games, shows and attractions.  You won’t want to miss a chance to soar 155 feet high on the Largest Traveling Ferris Wheel in North America with views up to 15 miles away.  And for those looking for extreme thrills, the Hard Rock and Roll makes its debut for the first time in Florida. Whoa! Families won’t be disappointed either with the addition of the Euroslide, Santas’ Snowstorm, an all new Christmas tree light show and 20 percent more kiddie rides.   There’s more …. but you’ll need a season pass for sure to do it all.

35 Reasons to Spend an Evening at Santa’s Enchanted Forest

35Reasons_Collage_withLogo

  1. Get in the holiday mood. Santa’s opens November 2. What better way to kick off the merriment of the holiday season?
  2. You need ideas for your own Christmas decorations. See South Florida’s largest musical Christmas tree and light spectacular and take home some great ideas for your own holiday show.
  3. The photo in front of that Christmas tree is exactly what you need for your Christmas cards and social media profile pic.
  4. Relive your childhood memories. You rode the merry-go-round as a child and you want to create the same wonderful experience with your kids. Santa’s is thrilled to be part of more than one generation in your family.
  5. Family tradition. It’s more than just a childhood memory; it’s an annual tradition! If you come to Santa’s every season, we love you for that!
  6. Birthday celebration. It’s the kids’ birthdays, your birthday or your cousin’s best friend’s daughter’s boyfriend’s mother’s husband’s birthday. No birthdays to celebrate this season? Check out https://www.famousbirthdays.com/ and honor the birthday of your favorite celebrity with a trip to Santa’s!
  7. You want to pop the question. Get engaged on Mistletoe Lane. A romantic story to share on your wedding day and for many years to come.
  8. Other special occasions. You got a promotion at work. The kids aced a spelling test. Celebrate “Marooned Without a Compass Day” on November 6 or “Wear Brown Shoes Day” on December 4. We swear we’re not making this up (someone on the Internet might be, but it wasn’t us!) Find random excuses to have some fun at http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/.
  9. Meet someone new. Single? Put that dating app to work and meet up at Santa’s for a memorable first date.
  10. Date night with your significant other. Santa’s isn’t just a great place for a first date – it’s an awesome place for all couples! Leave the kids at home and indulge in fair delicacies and thrill rides (maybe not in that order). That sounds so much better than dinner and a movie, doesn’t it?
  11. Speaking of fair delicacies … Fried Oreos people! Satisfy that hankering for mini donuts, candy apples and elephant ears.
  12. Mouth-watering aromas. Santa’s turkey legs, roasted corn, gyros, arepas and fajitas. There are so many flavors that all smell delicious – bring your appetite!
  13. You’re overdue for a night of thrills. Crazy Mouse, Windstorm and Magnum await.
  14. It’s time to embrace your competitive side. Win an awesome prize at one of the carnival games.
  15. You’ve figured out the perfect insult to get back at that darn clown. Don’t wait any longer – go for it and then dunk him while you’re at it.
  16. The kids wrote letters to Santa and you lost his address. We’ve got a mailbox with a direct route to the North Pole. FYI, December 7 is Letter Writing Day.
  17. Good entertainment can be hard to find, but Santa’s has a magic show, motor cross spectacular, children’s variety show and so much more.
  18. Team building. Santa’s is a great option for an office outing.
  19. Girls’ night out. Grab your squad and have a night to remember. You’ll just have to post those pictures on Instagram and Snapchat (Santa’s has cool filters to use for even more fun!)
  20. All your favorite television shows are on winter hiatus. And you’ve watched all the episodes available on Netflix.
  21. The hurricane season officially ends on November 30. After the intensity of storms this year, that is cause for a night out.
  22. Your favorite sports team won a game! Or lost one, for that matter. Celebrate the victory or forget the defeat – you can do both at Santa’s.
  23. School’s out! Nuff said.
  24. You’ve had long hours at work and need fresh air. Santa’s is happy to relieve some of the daily stresses of life.
  25. Family reunion. Kids, teenagers and adults alike can all find something to enjoy at Santa’s. Put on matching T-shirts and let the world know you are related and ready for fun.
  26. School reunion. You graduated 25 years ago. Don’t celebrate in a hotel ballroom. Get everyone together at Santa’s and relive the glory days.
  27. You’re counting steps. Grab your FitBit and head to the park. You can definitely get a couple of thousand moving through the holiday displays and rides.
  28. Pictures with Santa. Why wait in line at the mall when you can have way more fun the park and still get to tell Santa what you want for Christmas. Plus, you can also get photos with him on a fishing board or surfboard!
  29. You promised the kids. The only way you got them to leave last year was to promise them a return trip this year. They will most certainly remember!
  30. You’re getting a season pass. Thank you! Use it as much as you can this year – we hope you catch our Early Elf special before Opening Day!
  31. Santa’s theme song is stuck in your head. Give in and sing it all night long as you “come to see the lights at the wonderful …”
  32. The house is a mess. The dusting can wait another day. Having a great evening with friends and family cannot.
  33. It’s Monday. Or Tuesday, or Wednesday … Santa’s is open seven days a week from Nov. 2 through the first week of January.
  34. You won the lottery. Okay, so maybe it was only two dollars, but you can still put it toward souvenirs, yummy lemonade or a chance to win a better prize at one of the game booths.
  35. And the no. 1 reason to spend an evening at Santa’s Enchanted Forest … we’re kicking off our 35th year in South Florida and we want to celebrate it with you!

  1. Buy your park passes online. You’ll be able to head directly into the park and won’t have to spend time waiting to purchase tickets at the gate. Click the “Buy Tickets” tab on Santa’s Facebook Fan Page or visit santasenchantedforest.com to get your passes today.

  3. Visit Santa’s on a week night. Saturday is without a doubt the busiest night at the park, and the lines are definitely longer on the weekends. If Saturday is best for you, consider buying an Express Pass to skip the lines and get on your favorite rides quickly.
  4. Pack a disposable poncho or rain jacket – we mostly love South Florida weather in the winter, but sometimes it does get wet. As you know, the rain doesn’t last long when it does blow through, so being prepared means you won’t have to cut your trip short if the weather isn’t ideal.
  5. To beat the crowds, walk straight to the back of the park and then work your way to the front.
  6. On your way to the carnival rides, look at the schedules posted in front of the performance areas for each of our nine nightly show stages. Planning the best time to take in the amazing entertainment is a great way to get everyone in your group to meet up and watch a show together.
  7. Leave some time to indulge in our delicious food and beverage options. Grab dinner or a snack to enjoy while watching a show.carnivalgames
  8. Try your luck at a carnival game. Prizes make great gifts for kids of all ages!
  9. Look out for the specially designed Santa’s Enchanted Forest photo stops. Make a special memory and take a family photo.
