Don’t Miss Christmas In Color’s Colorado Debut at Water World

posted by:

December is here! You know what that means. Wrapping presents, baking cookies, putting your kids in their coziest pajamas and heading to Water World on a cold winter’s night.

Wait. What?

Christmas in Color, a new-to-Colorado holiday attraction has taken over the massive Water World parking lot in a spectacular way. Over 1.5 million lights have been thoughtfully synchronized with your favorite holiday music to create a dazzling experience of sights and sounds. You get to slowly drive your vehicle along twisty illuminated paths. You’ll cruise through rainbow-hued tunnels, spot singing snowmen, and get to make merry memories with the crew in your car.

If you enjoy driving around to scope out the best holiday lights in your neighborhood or city, you will love the creativity and whimsy of what will sure to be a new Colorado family tradition.

A few tips for when you go:

On Tuesdays through Thursdays, if you book your tickets in the first hour of operation, you can go through again for free, or bring a second car along and they get to go for free. They must arrive with you and you must tell the ticket taker.

Enter at the Pecos Street entrance, on the east side of the park. The exit is on 90th Avenue.

They give out 3D glasses while supplies last, but if you have some, take them along!

You must have a working FM radio to get the full experience with music (and a few corny jokes!)

Christmas in Color is open from now until December 31, 2018.

Advanced tickets are strongly recommended. You can buy them at the gate, but there is a separate line and they could sell out.

There is a 10 ft. height limit on vehicles. Also, longer vehicles like limos and trailers are not allowed. Some of the turns can be tight.

Drive slowly. Really soak it in! In this constantly rushing season, there is no reason to speed through. Just don’t stop.

Online vehicle admission Monday – Thursday from 5:30 to 10:00 p.m. – $25   **Except for the days of 12/19-12/24 it will be weekend pricing. Online vehicle admission Friday & Saturday from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. – $30. Closed on Christmas Day.


Win a free visit for one vehicle (car, van, truck)! The winner will receive a code to redeem a visit, subject to availability. You may enter as many as five times.
