If you thought Old West Christmas Light Fest was only a lights display, you’re sorely mistaken, partner! Sure, it’s the San Antonio area’s best spot to see outdoor Christmas lights, but Old West Christmas Light Fest also has games, live music, food, drinks and shopping–truly something for everyone!


And there’s more good news: Old West Christmas Light Fest has added new activities this year that are sure to engage even the Scroogiest folks this side of the North Pole (teenagers, anyone???).


Want to escape the holidays? The Old West Christmas Escape Room has just what you need! A new addition to Old West Christmas Light Fest this season, Christmas Escape is sure to provide laughs, fun and opportunities for teamwork (and maybe some friendly competition), for families, coworkers, or just groups of friends looking to do something unique and this holiday season.

Choose between two Escape Room challenges at Old West Christmas Light Fest this year. The “Jack Frost” challenge is for four brave souls who (hopefully) can help jump start winter. “The Wrangler” escape room is for six folks who are ready and willing to help Santa with a last-second Christmas Eve emergency! Working against the clock and collaborating with your friends and family is a fun way to bond and make memories this holiday season. Who knows: Conquering Old West’s Christmas Escape Rooms might just become your new favorite holiday tradition!

If your idea of fun tends to be less strategic and more action-packed, challenge your friends and family to an epic laser tag battle among the lighted trees at Enchanted Springs Ranch. With Christmas music as your soundtrack, team up with (or challenge) your nearest and dearest to a battle for who can save the day and make sure that Christmas goes off without a hitch this year!

After you conquer the Escape Rooms and win your laser tag battle, plan to hang around and check out the over 40 buildings at Enchanted Springs Ranch that are all lit up in festive lights and decor. Old West Christmas Light Fest is the ideal place to take out of town visitors this year to really get a feel for a Hill Country Christmas this season.


Browse among the dozens of vendors, stop by for a photo session with Happy Thoughts Studio, and don’t forget to stop in to visit with Santa Claus and his Holly Jolly Herd of real, live Texas longhorns. Finish up your visit around one of the campfires (s’mores, anyone?) as you gaze up at a giant, Texas sky full of stars.


Old West Christmas Light Fest is open Thursdays through Sundays from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. until December 19, then you can visit every night through December 25. The Escape Room challenges as well as laser tag require separate tickets, so plan ahead to secure your spots in these much buzzed about new activities at Old West Christmas Light Fest this year!
