Holiday with Lights will transform Wild Waves Theme Park into a nighttime holiday wonderland.

Opening night begins at 7 p.m. Dec. 14 with a tree lighting ceremony. Guests can experience their favorite rides, holiday-themed entertainment, sounds of the season and more from Dec. 14-31 (excluding Dec. 24-25).

General admission is $14.99 plus tax; 2012 Season Pass members will receive free admission. Discount tickets are available for $12.99 plus tax online at or at Safeway locations. Families with children ages 3 and under are free.

• Every guest has a special invitation by the Claus family to visit The North Pole. Santa will take a break from his very busy schedule to meet and take photos with families from Dec. 14-23.

• Guests are greeted with the sounds of the season by traditional dressed Victorian carolers.

• Celebration Square brings together family and friends around a dazzling 30-foot Christmas tree. The square comes alive throughout the night with a light show. Guests can indulge in a delicious seasonal treat with a variety of food options.

• Join in the fun at Christmas Carol-O-Key. Our hosts are looking for a few star-studded guests to join them on stage as they sing some of your favorite holiday tunes. Special appearances by Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph.

• The Mistletails — Milo the Mouse along with a puppet friend — tell their version of "‘Twas the Night Before Christmas" and what really happens in this hilarious puppet show.

• Swing into Toyland, a winter wonderland of lights and activities for kids. Stop at the holiday craft area to make a present for someone special, grab a pen and paper at the Santa letter writing station, join the Toyland elves for holiday games and more.
