World of Illumination, the producer of the one of the largest drive-through animated light shows, announced its lineup of new theme parks for the 2022 holiday season and headlining the list is Eureka, Missouri.
World of Illumination is constructing its larger-than-life holiday light event in the parking area of Six Flags St. Louis, making for a total of six locations across the country.
Visitors to the St. Louis area show will experience Cosmic Sleigh Ride, a holiday extravaganza that features millions of sparkling lights perfectly synchronized to festive music, hundreds of animated displays and appearances by holiday characters. Guests will enter Kris Kringle’s cosmic portal, where toys are made by hoverboarding elves, all before making their way to Santa’s City, where holiday magic is on full display.
“World of Illumination is thrilled to be coming to St. Louis and are grateful to our friends at Six Flags for giving us this opportunity,” said CEO Yakir Urman. “As we expand into yet another new city, we also push the boundaries of what is technically and creatively possible to give our guests the most epic holiday experience imaginable.”
The show runs from the weekend of November 18, 2022, to January 1, 2023, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. nightly. Visitors enjoy the dancing LED lights — customizable to up to 16 million shades of color — and the towering-high structures, fanciful tunnels and other surprises all from the comfort of their cars.
