Enchant: Christmas Magic in Arlington!

By chet | December 14, 2017

If the North Pole was in Texas, it would look a whole lot like Enchant Christmas in Arlington, North Texas’s newest Christmas lights’ display. The landscape of glistening reindeer, sparkling light arches and incandescent trees is like something out of your sweetest Christmas fantasies. Add in a couple snow flurries and you’ve got a purely magical experience unlike anything else.

The main attraction is the 300,000 sq. ft. Christmas maze where your mission is to help Santa find his 9 missing reindeer before his flight on Christmas eve. Watch out for magical snow flurries throughout! To truly enjoy this journey through pure Holiday wonder, you’ll want to wear comfortable walking shoes that you don’t mind getting covered in the gravely dust that gets kicked up throughout the maze.

Each pathway of the maze holds a new mystical surprise — like this glittering archway that seems to go on forever.

Next you’re on to a “Toyland” of sorts where you must make your way through the dozens of Texas-sized ornaments laying about.

And you’d think that in the midst of all this Holiday mystique, it’d be difficult to keep track of the reindeer scavenger hunt. But luckily, St. Nick’s “deer-est” friends are Texas-sized, making them easy to spot!

As you wander the maze, one of the most captivating lights displays is an entire forest of grand ice cycles so fairytale-esque, you almost expect an Ice Queen to appear and greet you with a cold smile.


In the tangle of glimmering crystals, everyone’s favorite reindeer, Rudolph, proudly lights the way with his glowing snout.

True enchantment continues as you discover an entire room filled with dangling twinkle lights and magnificent snowflakes are scattered about the maze — a vision so magical it seems to have been dreamt up by Santa Claus, himself.

After you’ve had your fill of Christmas fun and found all nine reindeer, the excitement continues outside the maze with a giant outdoor ice-skating rink, live music and rows of local food trucks.

There’s even a German-inspired Christkindl Market with craft vendors, German treats, handmade ornaments and goods.

Enchant truly captures the magic of the Christmas season. With dazzling lights, mystical snow flurries and sleighfuls of Holiday fun, it’s enough to bring out the childlike wonder in even the Grinchiest of folks. Click here to experience this dazzling event.
