For an additional, nominal fee, you can purchase buckets of feed or carrots for the animals you encounter.

Once you're through, you can then drive through the light display. The cost of this experience is $49 per adult and children ages 3 to 12 are $44. To learn more and to buy your tickets, visit

Never Have I Ever (Christmas Carol Edition)

If you've ever played the game NEVER HAVE I EVER with friends, then you know it's a good time! Basically, one person says 'Never Have I Ever' followed by something embarrassing or outrageous or even totally normal and everyone who has done it in the group has to take a drink. This morning, when we were looking at standard Christmas carols, we realized how many Christmasy things we've never done! So the Never Have I Ever Christmas game was born.
