Santa's Enchanted Forest - A Miami Christmas Tradition Well Worth Visiting!

Sure, the big theme parks do their best to redecorate during the holiday seasons. They hang lights, put their mascots in holiday themed parades and may have a few Christmas-oriented shows. No park specializes in Christmas like Santa's Enchanted Forest in Miami, though!

Now in its 32nd year, Santa's Enchanted Forest is a southern tradition, with more than a million people visiting the holiday season attraction each year. The world's largest holiday theme park, it has more than 100 rides, shows and attractions. Operating from October 30, 2014 to January 4, 2015, there is something for everyone at Santa's Enchanted Forest!

Stroll down Santa Claus Lane and see the more than 3 million lights that illuminate the area, view the precious Christmas scenes and listen to holiday music as you meander through the holiday displays. Show off during Christmas Karaoke or take that special someone to Mistletoe Lane for a Christmas kiss. You can't miss the centerpiece - South Florida's largest Christmas tree - and of, course Santa Claus - he's everywhere!

There are tons of fun activities for the little ones - face painting, a children's maze, the Dunk Bozo tank, a petting zoo, an inflatable playground, paintball, pony rides and, of course, photos with dear old Saint Nick. Rides for the little ones like a carousel, Ferris wheel, mini Daytona race cars, the Wacky Worm and the Orient Express roller coasters and a Christmas train will have them squealing with delight.

All sorts of family attractions are available. Ten different shows including a magic show, the Cats of the World Tiger show, Cirque Equinox, the Motorcycle Globe of Death and the always popular Sea Lion Splash Spectacular will entertain the whole family. For dog lovers, a new show this year - the Frisbee Dog Show - is sure to bow-wow your group!

There are rides the whole family can enjoy, too. Typical carnival rides like Bumper cars, Alpine Bobs and the Himalaya are at Santa's Enchanted Forest along with a dozen other rides the whole family can enjoy, including three roller coasters - Windstorm, Avalanche and Crazy Mouse - along with a water flume coaster. There's even a Haunted Mansion to enter if you dare!

Thrill seekers won't be disappointed either. Rides like Zero Gravity, Gravitron, Space Roller, Thunderbolt and Mega Drop - the world's largest drop tower - will have even the daredevils in your group questioning whether they have the guts to ride them or not.

Don't be surprised to see Santa join in at many of the shows and he's been known to jump aboard the rides, too!

There is, of course, a variety of diet-ruining foods everywhere you turn, so leave your calorie counter at home and indulge. And, no festive carnival would be complete without carnival games to test your skill and luck.
