Holiday Wonderland Expanded This Year



    Organizers at Petco Park are planning an expanded Holiday Wonderland this December.

    Initiated in 2014, the Wonderland opens December 4 and continues until Christmas.

    According to organizers there will be more walk-through lighting vignettes and more activities for kids.

    This year a carousel, a sledding hill even larger than last year’s and a 40’ tree will illuminate the playing field.

    A snow play zone will be located in Park at the Park complete with inflatable decorations and holiday games.

    Other new additions to the festivities include a Ferris wheel and even more holiday characters with designated performance times. Once again this year, guests can ride a Polar Express train for $5.

    guests can now trek to the North Pole located in the Western Metal Supply Co. Building to pet live reindeer, look around Santa’s workshop, meet his elves and talk to the man himself.

    Photos with Santa are $25 and include a Padres themed Elf on the Shelf ornament.

    With two points of entry and expanded space organizers hope avoid the long lines caused by the overwhelming demand in its inaugural year.

    Tickets are available now – prices will go up on November 23. Adult admission starts at $15 and children are $10.
