Say your final goodbyes to summer and start getting in the holiday spirit, because Enchant Christmas, which bills itself as the world’s largest Christmas light maze, will return to Nationals Park with an all-new maze adventure.
From Friday, November 24 to Sunday, December 31, the baseball stadium will be turned into a winter wonderland with millions of lights lighting up the field once again.
“We are excited to be bringing Enchant Christmas magic to Washington, DC, for the fourth year in a row,” said Enchant CEO Kevin Johnston. “The city and its residents and visitors come to life for the holidays, and we are proud to be a part of bringing the spectacular world of Enchant to the community. We can’t wait for Christmas!”
As always, the world’s largest Christmas light maze will weave guests through the field, offering plenty of picture-perfect stops along the way. This year, the maze adventure is playfully named “Reindeer Games.” The forest animals took the reindeer’s magic bells in order to find Santa’s sleigh. Guests will need to trek through the maze to find the magic bells and help save Christmas.
In addition to the maze, guests will be able to shop at the Christmas Village, take a picture with Santa and read a story with Mrs. Claus at the workshop, and enjoy tasty holiday-themed treats and drinks, including creamy hot chocolate and holiday cakesicles, throughout the maze.
The ice skating trail will return this year. The limited experience allows skaters to skate through the display, giving you a magical view of the lights. The ice skating experience is $10 for kids between 3 and 17 and $15 for adults.
Tickets for the annual holiday display are currently on sale. Prices range from $32 to $38 for adults ages 18–64, $24 to $28.50 for juniors ages 3–17, $28.80 to $34.20 for seniors ages 65 and older, and free for kids ages 2 and under. There are also special ticket packages for families of four, night owls, military, and large groups. Limited parking passes for the garages at Nats Park are available starting at $25.
