Snowflake Falls is home to FROST, the park’s acrobatic show that will leave you frozen. I was absolutely blown away by FROST and it is quite possibly the best show I have EVER seen. You just have to see it to believe it. I am not the only one that loved FROST. Beforehand, it had a massive 30 minute line so head there early to check it out!

I’m not the only one who loves FROST

Polar Playland is another area dedicated for the little ones. Here, Mrs.Claus tells the story of her pet reindeer.
