For those of you who are obsessed with all things Christmas and have a free weekend in December, you need to check out Santa’s Wonderland, which recently went viral on TikTok. It’s a 130-acre spread of land in College Station, Texas that has been transformed into a Christmas-themed oasis.

When you visit Santa’s Wonderland you’re immediately greeted with a barrage of LED Christmas lights tacked to every structure. It basically looks like Las Vegas meets the North Pole.

Once you’re inside, you can entertain yourself all night long with yummy food, adorable petting zoo animals, ice skating, snow tubing, hayrides, and more.

You and your friends can even hitch a ride on a horse and carriage tour that takes you through this Willy Wonka-inspired light tunnel. You’ll feel like Christmas royalty.

Santa’s Wonderland first opened in 1998 as a drive-through Christmas lights display. In the 20 years since, the place has become the largest Christmas attraction in Texas and the park now builds new light displays annually to keep even the most diehard Santa’s Wonderland visitors impressed and awed.

You can purchase Santa’s Wonderland tickets over on the park’s website and check out the additional events the park has on the holiday season lineup. And depending on which weekend you choose to visit, your hot cocoa purchase will benefit a select charity Santa’s Workshop has partnered with. It turns out that heaven is a place on Earth, after all.
