Santa’s Enchanted Forest is a Neon Christmas NightmareS

Santa's Enchanted Forest, an annual carnival village in Miami, Florida, is about as close to Holiday Hell as you're going to get. It's probably the 40-foot-tall, weird hand gesturing, glowing red Santa and his plastic snowman army, that makes the Enchanted Forest the gateway to neon Christmas nightmares.

Every inch of this carny-run village is covered with christmas lights and jam-packed with various reindeer lawn ornaments, snowmen, elves, snowflakes, and brightly wrapped gift boxes. It's like Christmas threw up all over the place.

Aside from the seizure inducing light show, make sure swing by the food tents before taking a spin one of the over 100 rides. The Forest is also home to a full sized petting zoo and a 90-foot-tall Christmas tree smack-dab in the center of the park. Before you leave, make sure to pay a visit to the big bearded guy himself. If you don't cry tears of pure fear, your children most certainly will.

The Park might be nicknamed the after its "free carnival" but don't let that mislead you. Holly jolly fun comes at a price, and a fairly hefty one at that. You're looking at dropping 30 bucks per adult to get through Santa's glowing gates, so don't leave ho-ho-home without your wallet.
