When it comes to holiday light displays in the Bay Area, it’s hard to beat this enormous Christmas maze and ice skating rink in San Jose. Enchant is taking place now through January 1st at PayPal Park, and it’s the place to be if you (like us) have caught an extreme case of holiday cheer.
Enchant is essentially a massive glittering winter wonderland rife with photo opportunities and fun activities. Explore a giant glowing light maze with larger-than-life reindeer, a 100-foot Christmas tree, and endless interactive elements. Guests can pick up a Maze Passport and look for all 9 reindeer in order to receive a stamp, which will give you a chance to enter the Hallmark Channel trip sweepstakes.
In addition to the maze, be sure to take a spin on Enchant’s unique ice skating rink which is made to resemble an illuminated forest. Forget the traditional round ice rink and instead skate through this lovely ice trail with fantastic photo ops.
Tickets to Enchant start at $39 for adults and $25 for children. Timed-entry tickets for the ice skating add-on are $20 for adults and $15 for kids, skate rental included.
After you’ve skated your heart out, you can go shopping for artisan gifts at the Village while sipping on seasonal beverages in Enchant’s signature lightbulb-shaped cup. Snack on gourmet s’mores and holiday donuts while enjoying live entertainment. 21+ guests will want to stop by the Ice Bar, where you can chill out around a display of ice sculptures and sip on vodka cocktails. It’s -14 degrees, but parkas are included to keep you warm!
Enchant started in Vancouver back in 2016 and has since appeared in a variety of major U.S. cities including Las Vegas, Nashville, and Washington, D.C. The San Jose event is happening now at PayPal Park, but there’s another Enchant winter wonderland also happening now in Sacramento in Sutter Health Park.
