Lake Rudolph Resort Sets 2nd Lights Adventure
The Santa Claus Land of Lights Family Christmas Light Adventure in Santa Claus, Ind, opens for the 2010 season on Thanksgiving night, Nov. 25.
Located inside Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort in Santa Claus, this custom outdoor light show tells the shining story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in bright, energy-efficient LED lights. The Santa Claus Land of Lights is the only light show in North America that tells a story in lights and storyboards. At 1.2 miles long, it is also the largest campground holiday light show in North America, according to a news release.
Improvements and additions for the 2010 Santa Claus Land of Lights include a new light tunnel measuring 150 feet long, more storyboards and a pre-paid express lane, creating faster admission into the show. Another traffic flow improvement includes moving the entrance for the Santa Claus Land of Lights to the main entrance of Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort, about ¼ mile north of the Holiday World Theme Park entrance on Holiday Boulevard (Hwy. 245).
“We’re excited for our second season of the Santa Claus Land of Lights,” says Philip Koch, owner of Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort. “We appreciate families from across the region that come and experience our unique light show and the town of the Santa Claus. We hope that everyone will make this an annual Christmas Tradition.”
Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort will once again partner with McDonald’s in the Evansville area, and has expanded into the Terre Haute, Ind., and Louisville, Ky,, areas. Discount coupons ($4 off per vehicle) for the Family Christmas Light Adventure will be offered at 160 McDonald’s locations in Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois, and a portion of proceeds will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
The Santa Claus Land of Lights will be open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. CST on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from Thanksgiving through Dec. 12. The Santa Claus Land of Lights is open nightly Dec. 17 through Jan. 1 and is closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
