Candy Rush features millions of colorful lights and hundreds of animated displays synchronized to beloved Christmas music. This holiday spectacular showcase includes 40-foot tall trio of candy canes, larger-than-life size sweets and treats, sugar plum fairies and a gingerbread village.

Additionally, a 500-foot long RGB LED tunnel doubles as Santa’s magic portal, and popular Christmas characters make an appearance throughout. Even Kris Kringle himself will be on deck live and in person on opening night to wave to those driving through the attraction.

World of Illumination’s event is one mile long and takes about 30 minutes to drive through. The event is also uniquely COVID-friendly, as you can enjoy the show from the safety and comfort of your own car. Online reservations are also required, making the experience totally touchless and socially safe, while simultaneously controlling traffic to decrease waiting times

World of Illumination’s Candy Rush is open daily, including holidays, from 6:00-10:00 p.m. Ticket prices start at $35 plus applicable taxes and fees per vehicle on weeknights and $45 plus taxes and fees per car on weekends and holidays.
