Atlanta's Newest Holiday Attraction: Global Winter Wonderland

See also

If you are looking for a different holiday adventure this year, consider checking out Atlanta's Global Winter Wonderland. Located in a massive parking lot at Turner Field, this attraction simply has to be seen to be believed. It contains an epic holiday light display recreating some of the world's most famous landmarks as well as amusement park rides, a food court, and live entertainment.

The attraction will be open through January 5, and discounted tickets may be found online through web sites like www.goldstar.com. Check out the web site for information on when specific acts are performing, or just head on down to enjoy the rides and the sites.

The sheer enormity of the extravagant display is difficult to convey; nowhere else in Atlanta can one find sparkling recreations of the Eiffel Tower, Mount Rushmore, the White House, the Taj Mahal, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the windmills of Holland, and many, many more. There is a dinosaur maze to navigate, and there are adorable replicas of the animals of the Chinese zodiac. The ferris wheel is a fantastic way to get a bird's eye view of the entire park, and more adventurous visitors will love the carnival rides (all included in the admission price).

If you can't make time for an international adventure this year, Atlanta's Global Winter Wonderland is the next best thing. It can also be an educational experience as children learn about the different international sites, as long as they understand that the real Big Ben is slightly less sparkly! It's also an unusual treat to have a holiday experience that truly embraces the myriad of cultures existing in Atlanta.
