What to Expect
Lights Alive! is a 100% computer-controlled, musically synchronized, drive-thru light show experience. The nearly mile-long attraction is the first of its kind in Texas and proudly showcases innovative new lighting technologies that are sure to dazzle and captivate viewers of all ages.
The intensive and immersive experience is family-friendly and synchronized to a one-of-a-kind soundtrack with modern high-energy, up-beat, non-traditional remixes as well as popular Christmas classics.
THE PARK-N-PLAY WINTER WONDERLAND
SAN ANTONIO LOCATION ONLY
The conclusion of the experience in San Antonio opens into our Park & Play Wonderland where spectators can exit their car and enjoy gourmet Christmas confections, create holiday crafts as gifts for loved ones, take photos with Santa, or program their own light show on our 50-foot animated light show tree!
We also have additional activities such as the Nativity Show, Gingerbread Escape Room Experience, Inflatable Axe Throwing, and Soccer Darts.
There is also a large grassy area where guests can take in the beautiful view of the entire drive thru portion of the show happening down the hill. Or just kick back and relax with a hot chocolate while your children run around and play.

This popularity coupled with large crowds peaking at over 6,000 visitors a night is what birthed our ambitions to create Lights Alive! — a unique and fully immersive drive-thru light show here in San Antonio, TX.
