PHOENIX — Drive-thru animated light shows produced by World of Illumination are back in the Valley this week with two shows starting Wednesday.

“Rockin’ Christmas” in the Six Flags Hurricane Harbor parking lot in Glendale and “Candy Rush” at Tempe Diablo Stadium are mile-long shows that will run through Jan. 1, according to a press release.

“Enchanted Safari” at Desert Diamond Casino in Glendale is set to open on Nov. 23.

Each show will feature colorful LED lights, animated displays and synchronized music to celebrate the holiday season.

They are scheduled to run from 6-10 p.m. every night, regardless of weather.

“World of Illumination is thrilled to be adding a third location to the Valley of the Sun,” CEO Yakir Urman said in the release. “As we expand into yet another venue, we also push the boundaries of what is technically and creatively possible to give our guests the most epic holiday experience imaginable.”

Reservations need to be made online and in advance, and pricing starts at $39.99 per vehicle.

The shows take about 25-30 minutes to complete with cars driving 3-5 mph.

We want to hear from you.
