The Arctic Kingdom Aurora Lights
To celebrate Rock City’s 25th Anniversary of the Enchanted Garden of Lights, Inara the Ice Queen and Jack Frost are bringing the Aurora Lights to the Arctic Kingdom. Walk through the stunning display of ice crystals as you begin your descent into the Arctic Kingdom. Journey through this newly enhanced realm filled with the traditional icy blue and white, but immersed with the addition of aquamarine and purple creating a design reminiscent of the aurora borealis lights; bringing new life into this icy, Arctic realm of wonder.
In the midst of the icy, Arctic Kingdom, you will find refuge from the cold! Step down into the magical Glacier Grotto and sit by a unique fire-pit, and warm yourself to the core.
