AUSTIN (KXAN) — Instead of fast cars hitting the track at the Circuit of the Americas this holiday season, it’ll be a train that will take children to the North Pole.
For the first time since COTA’s opening, the grounds will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland, complete with an ice skating rink, Santa’s workshop, a tunnel of lights and even a human snow globe. While there won’t be any reindeer on hand, there will be camel rides.
Winter Wonderland opens on Dec. 1-2 and then will remain open from Dec. 8-30. Doors open daily starting at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $16 although children 5 and under are free. Free parking is also included. Included in the general admission tickets is the human snow globe with falling snow, petting zoo, Tunnel of Lights and walking trail, Santa’s Workshop, and movies on the lawn. Ice skating will be an extra fee.
