A lot of people in the Greensboro area know Kersey Valley best for its Halloween Spooky Woods events; however, Halloween is now in the rear-view mirror and it’s time for holiday events like Kersey Valley Christmas.
This year, Kersey Valley is introducing some new attractions such as a “Candy Cane Lane walk-through light show,” an expanded wagon ride and a new adventure playground.
Established in 1985 as the haunted attraction on a 65-acre farm, Kersey Valley now includes about 100 acres of farmland; and, over the years, it’s expanded into a year-round attraction with a variety of special events.
This year, holiday attractions will open on Friday through Sunday nights – beginning Friday, Nov. 25, and then will run daily from Friday, Dec. 16 through Friday, Dec. 23.
Reservations are required. And “friendly pets on a leash” are welcome.
In 2022, there are new events to enjoy, such as the “Reindeer Stalls behind Santa’s Workshop” – where visitors can watch the elves working on Christmas gifts for little boys and girls around the world. (The Rhino Times cannot independently verify the authenticity of the “elves” working at the attraction.)
Tony Wohlgemuth, who co-owns Kersey Valley Attractions with his wife Donna, said this should be a blowout holiday Christmas celebration in 2022.
“This year, we’re inviting everyone to get out of the stuffy car and long lines for other light shows that leave the kids—and adults—falling asleep before the fun begins,” he said.
The wagon ride has been expanded into the farmland next door – which makes it twice as long as it was previously. And a new adventure playground has also been built for kids to explore.
Visitors can expect the following according to promotional material: “All of the holiday feels with a winter wonderland of one million LED lights, a Snow Blizzard featuring 5-foot snowflakes falling from 45 feet in the air, holiday music, and magical sets, including some that are custom and unique only to Kersey Valley. Children can download a letter to drop in Santa’s mailbox and get a photo with the big guy himself as well as The Grinch.”
The admission price includes the Kersey Valley Express Train Ride through Wild West Christmas Towns, John Deere-pulled Christmas Wagon rides around the farm, two jumping pillows, kiddie zip lines, pedal carts, cow train ride, bungee trampolines, barnyard twister, round-up rodeo, Super Mega Ride*n*Slide, Mac Jingles the singing Reindeer, a Tree House Village, Dinosaur Discovery, Where’s Rudolph?, and a Roasty Toasty Village for making s’mores.
This year, tickets for an evening at the attraction runs from $30 for ages four and up and $20 for seniors 65 and over. Group rates are also available.
Children three and under are free; however, children must be at least four years old – or 42 inches tall –to take part in some of the activities offered.
