World of Illumination opens in Georgia

Holiday light shows are one of the best things about the holidays and with many of them being drive-through, it’s as safe as it is fun.
   The World of Illumination is the world’s largest drive-through animated light show with locations in Tempe and Glendale, AZ, but now a third location, in Marietta, GA., a suburb of Atlanta, will open in November. The Georgia park, called Candy Rush, will be located at Six Flags White Water and will feature Christmas and candy-themed attractions with millions of lights set to holiday music. There will be color galore with more than 16 million different shades of RGB LED lights, as well as hundreds of animated displays including a 40-foot trio of candy canes. Another highlight will be a 500-foot long tunnel that also serves as Santa’s magic portal with a gingerbread village, sugar plum fairies and lit-up treats.
   Each theme park is different. While the Atlanta-area’s park motif is Candy Rush; in Tempe, the theme is Arctic Adventure with a 32-foot Sunny the Snowman and his tundra-bound friends. Over in Glendale, the theme is a Rockin’ Christmas with life-sized musical notes and a retro Santa.
   The parks are COVID-friendly with visitors enjoying the experience in their cars. Online reservations are a must.
   The Marietta park will run from Nov. 13 through Jan. 3 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week, including holidays. Cost is $35 per vehicle on weekdays, $45 on the weekend. Tempe will open on Nov. 10 until Jan. 3 from 6 to 10 p.m. Cost is $29 on weekdays, $39 on weekends. In Glendale, the park will be open from Nov. 6 through Jan. 3 from 6 to 10 p.m. Cost is $29 to $39. A portion of all proceeds in Georgia  benefits the Make-A-Wish Georgia Foundation, while the other two parks will make donations to Make-A-Wish Arizona.
