  • A brand-new, redesigned show
  • A million lights that bring Leu Gardens to life
  • Meet-and-greet characters in the Ice Castle

  • 40' diameter snow dome with swirling snow
  • 70' long candy cane vortex light tunnel
  • Walk through a forest with giant, neon flowers
  • A brand-new laser light show with live singers
  • Expanded food and beverage options

"It’s so exciting to see Dazzling Nights continue to grow for our guests," says Chief Creative Officer of Memoir Agency Cole NeSmith. "This year’s Dazzling Nights features even more lights, new live entertainment, an expanded food menu and character meet-and-greets, plus a new yeti play area. We’re keeping this annual tradition fresh and exciting for repeat visitors, as well as first time guests!"
