Now that Thanksgiving is officially over, it’s time to get into the holiday spirit! The Winter Wonderland is back at Kensico Dam, and it’s bigger and better than ever. Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday night from tonight through New Year’s Eve, you can drop in on the outdoor event starting at 5pm.
Included in the admission of $20 per person are unlimited visits with Santa, ice skating, a holiday circus, the new FUNderland Village, a spectacular light show, and more. We’ve been a few times in past years, and usually the holiday circus alone is worth the price of entry. A selection of food trucks and vendors will also be on hand to offer snacks, food, and hot beverages. We’re going to check it out this weekend!
Here are more details:
Showtimes are 5:30, 6:30, and 7:30pm on weekdays and Sundays, with an additional 8:30pm showtime on Fridays and Saturdays.
The dining tent is home to the new magic show that everyone can enjoy while warming up and eating food from the food trucks. Schedule: 5:45 p.m., 6:45 p.m., 7:45 p.m.
The newly added FUNderland Village features 10 rides and four games, as well as a new train ride that circles the light show. A winter hayride takes you up close to the base of the Kensico Dam.
The Santa Experience
Meet Santa himself and take your own photos! The Santa Experience gives children the chance to share their wish list while making a lasting memory of a lifetime. Expect to see surprise guests too!
Outdoor Ice Rink
Skate against the backdrop of beautiful Kensico Dam Plaza and twinkling lights all around. Skate rentals are included in the price of admission.
Musical Light Show
Bigger and brighter LED lights magically light up illuminate the night, choreographed to favorite holiday music. Walk or take a train ride around the triangle to get the full experience!
Plus, this year the Winter Wonderland will be holding a family-friendly New Year’s Eve party on Monday, Dec. 31. The gates open at 5pm, with a pyrotechnic show and ball drop starting at 7pm.
