Santa Land Texas — The Original Drive-Thru Christmas Park Now Open


Once upon a time in a small town in Texas, there was a magical wonderland called Santa Land Texas. And it’s still there today.

With its stunning visual displays, millions of lights, and themed areas, you’ll notice the glow of Santa Land Texas throughout the piney woods of Lindale, Texas. If the town sounds familiar, it’s because country superstar Miranda Lambert is from there. Established in 1995 as an original drive-thru Christmas Park, Santa Land Texas will entertain you and your family the moment you arrive and the good news is the that the park is officially open for the 2016 season.

Santa Land Texas, with more than 2.5 million lights, is located just north of Tyler. And if you find yourself driving down I-20 West like I did, you’ll be amazed at seeing the bright illumination in the trees as you get closer to this 24-acre park. It contains magical hand-crafted, animated displays designed especially for the entire family. And the park is open rain or shine.


The Tunnel of Lights features 25,000 flashing, dancing lights, and as you exit the 250-foot tunnel there are 12-foot tall toy soldiers saluting you. Several sections of this park have themed areas with lots of Christmas music coordinated with the displays to give you the ultimate holiday experience.
