We were invited to attend an evening at Enchant Seattle last week and had a wonderful time as a family. Ticket options can be found and purchased online and ice skate rentals are an additional $10 per person.
Upon arrival, we caught a glimpse of the magic below and both girls rushed to the glass doors to take a peek of what was ahead of us for the evening. Both were super excited and couldn’t wait to explore.
We walked through the Christmas market on our way to the Light Maze entrance and enjoyed checking out different vendors selling everything from candles, to chocolates and treats, to articles of clothing. Our girls were much more excited about seeing all of the lights so we didn’t linger over anything too long before continuing on our way.
The entrance itself to go down into the lights was spectacular and really set the mood for the evening. We were all very excited to see the inside of the maze.
Once inside the actual maze, we were each given a card with Santa’s 9 reindeer on it that we were asked to look for throughout the maze. Both of our girls couldn’t wait to get started and set off immediately to find each one.
The deer were larger than life and beautifully lit up with white Christmas lights. After finding each one, we scratched off the coordinating reindeer on our cards. Once we were finished admiring the lights and scratching off our cards, we showed them at the maze exit and each received a candy cane.
Our youngest was getting a bit tired at this point (we were out past her bedtime), but she was still very excited to try ice skating for the first time for our next activity.
This was probably the most stressful part of the night for me as I kept worrying about someone getting hurt (I would recommend bringing helmets for the kids if possible), but both girls later said it was their favorite so I guess it was a success! The ice wasn’t quite as smooth as it could have ideally been, but the girls enjoyed getting out there and learning and trying something new. By the end, London was wobbly skating on her own and Adeline was falling a lot less. 😉
We ended our night with a visit with Santa. We were lucky to be visiting on a weeknight with barely a wait, but I can imagine it can get quite busy on a weekend. Guests have the option to take their own photo or purchase one from Enchant. We received a complimentary photo but I also tried to sneak a quick picture in of my own before the girls were ready to move on. My girls were very shy of actually being near Santa, so after whispering what they wanted, we checked out our photo and got ready to head home.
Overall, we had a really great time with our girls at Enchant Seattle. It was all so very magical and neat to see Safeco field transformed into a Christmas Wonderland. It’s definitely an activity to consider checking out during the holiday season.
Thank you to Enchant Seattle for hosting us for a wonderful evening.
