Ice Skating Rink
The 40-foot by 60-foot synthetic ice-skating rink is able to accommodate 35 people at once. This will allow for social distancing. The price for a half-hour session of ice skating is $8.00, and that includes ice skate rental. Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the venue.
Synthetic ice is constructed from a special type of plastic. It functions like real ice. It is even used by some NHL hockey players during their summer training. It is very slippery and regular ice skates are used.
The sledding hill consists of two lanes. It is 17 feet tall at the highest point. It includes a 70-foot slope that was sponsored by Home Depot. Sleds are available at the venue. Children that are at least five years old can ride alone. Younger children must ride with an adult. Tickets for unlimited turns down the slide are $12.00 per person.
Play Area With Inflatables
For $10.00, children can have unlimited access to the inflatables area, which features an obstacle course, bounce house, and a giant slide.
Christmas Lights Walk
More than 100,000 lights will greet visitors on this two-thirds of a mile stretch. Entry to the area is free of charge and opens after 5:00 p.m. Along the route are many inflatable Christmas decorations, including Santa’s reindeer, The Grinch, and Mickey Mouse.
The Christmas Village
Be transported to Santa Claus’ Village at the North Pole at this concession area filled with festive structures and picnic tables. There are also firepits and booths with cushioned benches to accommodate private groups of up to 12 people. These luxury booths are only available by reservation. The cost to rent a booth ranges from $75.00 for one hour to $325.00, depending on how long it will be rented. Whole evenings on Thursday or Sunday (4 hours) are $250.00 and whole evenings on Friday or Saturday (5 hours) are $325.00. The rental fee includes blankets and ingredients for s’mores.
Where Does Your Money Go?
Proceeds from Lights of Hope go toward Father’s House Gift of Hope. This is a yearly Christmas program that provides gifts to underprivileged children and church programs within Butte County.
