Admission to Christmas Magic is by online reservation only. Reservations can be made up until the last minute while available. Come at the time of your choice and stay until closing. Reservations are required; no walk-ins will be permitted.  Timed admission limits the number of people attending Christmas Magic at one time, providing a better visiting experience and less waiting in traffic and lines. All sales are final. Tickets are non-refundable. If York County Parks closes the event due to weather and/or light outages a credit will be issued to your parks account. We are unable to change the night of your reservation after your purchase.  Please double check your chosen date and time before you complete your registration.

Current government mandates in place regarding COVID at the time of admission will be followed.

Weather-Related Cancellations: Our lights and displays can be temperamental in the presence of snow, rain, ice, and fog. They may require more than a day to dry out after the weather improves. Please check your email after 1:30 on the day of your tickets for any cancellation messages. If we cancel due to weather, you will receive a credit to your parks account on the following business day.  You can also call the Christmas Magic Hotline at (717) 840-7440, press 4, then 2, or visit us on Facebook or Twitter for trail conditions and closures.
