Mystic Falls Park® Lights up the Holiday Season with Return
of Winter Wonderland Display and Holiday Laser Light Show
Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall is making the season merry and bright with the return of Mystic Falls Park®’s winter wonderland display, featuring festive décor, more than 26,000 points of light and a nine-minute holiday laser light show. The holiday attraction can be enjoyed starting at sundown on Wednesday, November 22, then daily through Sunday, January 1, 2024.
The holiday-themed attraction at Mystic Falls Park® is a time-honored tradition that goes back to 1994. The whimsical, family-friendly winter display presents an 18-foot Christmas tree decorated with festive ornaments and thousands of twinkling lights, topped with a starburst tree topper. Garland-wrapped lampposts, streamers, lanterns and wreaths fill the atrium, embellished with hundreds of lights, ornaments and red holiday bows.
As guests stroll through the park, they can also enjoy seeing blankets of snow, animatronic characters wearing Santa hats, giant pinecones and beautifully wrapped gift boxes. A number of large winter-themed décor will be located throughout the park for photo opportunities with the whole family. Mystic Falls Park®’s beloved gazebo will also be covered in snow and decorated with garlands, a sparkling icicle trimming and large candy canes at the entrance. In total, the lit-up décor features 26,350 points of light and approximately 13,175 feet, or 2.5 miles, of wire.
Also returning this year is the nine-minute holiday laser light show, which is the centerpiece of the display. The laser light show features a variety of classic holiday songs, including “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “Let It Snow,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” and “Frosty the Snowman.” Performances run every hour, between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. Adding to the wintery experience, Mystic Falls Park® will make it snow in the Las Vegas desert every night through the new year.
Santa will also join in the festivities by visiting the Mystic Falls Park® gazebo beginning Friday, November 24 and through Saturday, December 23. Santa will be available from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, except for 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. as Santa will be away feeding his reindeer. Guests are invited to stop by and take photos with Santa using their own cameras.
In addition to enjoying the free holiday attraction, families can conveniently drop off their letters for Santa in Santa’s mailbox, also located under the gazebo inside Mystic Falls Park®.
Boyd Gaming is also bringing back its charity decorating competition, Wreaths of Hope.
