What's to say about Santa's Enchanted Forest - dubbed the world's largest Christmas theme park that also happens to be smack dab in the middle of the tropics? This old-school seasonal Santa-fest has been setting up shop in Tropical Park for decades. Every local can sing the theme song, and it's a rare holiday enthusiast who hasn't made a trip to this Christmas Shangri-La to see the lights, see live lions, eat carnival food and ride the Crazy Mouse. With more than 100 rides, shows, games and attractions - it's Christmas cheer to the nth degree.
