Looking for something fun to do for the holidays, check out GLACIER PARK
Wintery fun awaits at Glacier Park, the outdoor area beneath Union Station’s massive Train Shed. Admission to Glacier Park and North Pole Village are included in Santa Express train tickets. Tickets for guests not holding train tickets are $5 per person, children two and under are free. Glacier Park activities operate through January 6. Three outdoor cabanas that each seat up to eight people and offer great views of the light show are available for a $75 rental fee reserving the space from 3 – 10 p.m. Book online at www.HolidaysatUnionStation.com.
Here guests will enjoy:
• Ice Skating – Guests can glide atop a 4,700-square-foot modular ice rink. Two-hour sessions are just $10 for adults and $5 for kids. Skate rental is available for $5 or BYO skates. The rink is installed by Ice Rink Events, a leader in portable ice facilities. A 200-ton chiller will keep things icy cold.
• Ice Slide – Grab a snow tube for a slippery good time whooshing down Glacier Park’s 9-foot-high and 95-foot-long ice slide. Double tubes are available for parents toride with small children. Tickets, valid for up to 12 runs, are $7 for adults and $5 for kids.
• Fire/Water/Music Show – The highlight of Glacier Park is the breathtaking fire, water and music experience displayed over the one-acre lake. The $4 million installation consists of a 100-foot-long waterfall with 50 nozzles that spray water 40-feet-downward into the lake. A 100-foot- long LED light bar will shine on the water to create different effects. Eight “lotus” pods shoot fire up to 25 feet into the air and also emit a fog illusion. The dancing light, water and fire are synchronized to holiday music to create a sight and sound spectacle never before seen in St. Louis. Showtimes are 3:30 p.m.; 4:30 p.m.; 6 pm.; 7 p.m. and 8:15 p.m.
