Thousands of holiday lovers are jumping into their sleighs and experiencing the magic of Glittering Lights presented by Goettl Air Conditioning & Plumbing. The busy season is nearing, but fear not – we have some quick tips and tricks for making the most out of long wait times! 


One of the biggest tips and tricks to visiting Glittering Lights is the visit before December 17 or after December 31 to avoid the massive holiday crowds. For the best experience, we recommend arriving early, usually within the first hour of opening. You can see the nightly hours here.


Fast Pass powered by Diamondback Land Surveying is the perfect option to bypass the line during rush times. This pass is $65-$75 and offered on select nights and is highly recommended for families on a holiday time crunch. Pre-purchase to guarantee a fast entry, limited sold on-site. Cash or credit at attraction entry is also an option, just look for the Fast Pass sign.

Load up the car and make a night out of viewing the lights. Plan family fun car activities to keep the kids on Santa’s nice list. Maybe even bring a pizza to share!


For lovers of the lights who want an even more glittering, outdoor experience, bundle up and check out Santa Tram driven by Silver State Schools Credit Union. It’s an open-air tram ride through the lights where we do the driving, and we dash you to the front of the line, providing plenty of snuggle time with the family. This magical holiday experience features Santa, festive decor, fun games, a train for the kiddos and plenty of family photo selfie opportunities. Limited space available, but hurry this experience is $20 per person and is only open through December 23.
