Welcome Home to Christmas Court. Thousands of traditional lights in green, red, and white illuminate the streets, buildings and half century old trees providing a sense of arrival and warm welcome to Christmas at Shepherd of the Hills. Storefront windows and doors are adorned with “fresh cut” garlands and wreaths, while candles flicker in the crisp pine scented breeze.
A Winter Wonderland of play and Adventure with miniature golf, fun barn hay maze, Little Elves Obstacle Course, tree house village, petting zoo, children’s Christmas crafts and much more.
Your Journey begins as you approach Ticket Town where the North Pole Adventure Tour can be purchased. Magical Elf Guardians operate the golden gates for safe passage to the Memorable North Pole Adventure.
Old Matt’s Cabin creates the backdrop to 100 Shepherd Hook Lanterns that are part of the North Pole Adventure Tour. This Lite it Up Lantern Works is powered by Elves and creates a reflective Scene for the Season. The iconic cabin will glow in a lighted wash of amber as a reminder to its humble beginnings. The sounds of a Silent Night fiddle being played can be heard from within, as we continue down the cobbled path.
It takes a lot of Star Dust to fuel Santa’s Sleigh, and here at Star Dust Saw Mill our Elf Engineers are hard at work perfecting the process. The Mill also produces a new Wood based snowflake that is undergoing LED lighting upgrades. Over Fifty life size snowflakes dot the hillside and dance to the music, amongst a giant 4 feet high by 42 feet long “Merry Christmas” standing guard at the crest of the hill.
The Spirit of the Season is alive and well as you approach the Tree Top Lot. Step back in time as you make your way through an elaborate lighted Tree Lot Maze. Families work together to find their way while scenes of elf decorators entertain. Fun for everyone Tree Top Lot is definitely a must see stop.
Our journey leads us to Candy Cane Lane adorned with Life Size Candy Canes, and bushes covered in Peppermint Disks. Snow is lightly falling, and the scent of peppermint fills the air.
Navigate your way past Giant Snowflakes, Reindeer, Santa’s Sleigh and thru a Christmas Treelot Maze on your way to North Pole Tower.
High Adventure Ropes Course and Sky Rail Zipline included Friday-Sunday
Ho Ho Ho, up 200 feet you go. Take a ride to the top of the North Pole to visit Santa and his elves.
As you step off the elevator the scent of Christmas Cookies fills the air as you join the short line for the visit of your lifetime. Decorations adorn the tower and presents are peppered throughout as you make your way. Around the corner and nestled among towering lights and trees sits the Jolly ole’ Elf ready for your visit.
After departing Santa Towers, a lantern lit path leads you to a more reflective realm where white and gold lights adorn the trees and reflect from the White Sided Church in the Woods. Upon entering Christmas music fills the air and candles dot the windows with dancing light. Holy Family Statues grace the simple altar and remind us, The Reason for the Season.
As we leave the Church in the Woods, the path meanders through dozens of lighted Christmas Trees and leads us to the beginning of our North Pole Adventure where we bid farewell to the fun but are left with the Spirit of the Season that can only be found during Christmas at Shepherd of the Hills.
