Following the success of the Apple Cider Donuts Drive-Thru in the spring and the recent Pumpkin Glow & Light Show Drive-Thru, Ellms Family Farm in Ballston Spa is planning for a sure-to-be-epic Rudolph Experience! Get the details and secure your tickets for this family-friendly event that starts on November 27.
Ellms Family Farm Continues to Provide a Vital Service for Area Families
“We knew the holiday season would be looking a bit different this year, so it was important to us as a part of this community to be able to continue to offer safe and fun family traditions,” owner Garth Ellms told us. “We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the Christmas Tree Farm to get into the holiday spirit and make memories surrounded by thousands of beautiful ready-to-cut fresh Christmas trees.”
He went on to say that this new Rudolph’s Movie Experience and Pyrotechnics Show will be a great way to capture that nostalgic feel from the movie so many of us treasure, with “some extra wow factor and entertainment added.”
Indeed, at a time when kids likely will not get to sit on Santa’s lap or enjoy some traditional activities, this Rudolph Experience is sure to get everyone into the spirit of the holiday season. Read on for pricing options and what to expect.
Here’s How the Festive Fun Will Go Down
Farm Team Elves will be on hand to greet you as you arrive and will check you in. If you’ve pre-purchased treats (more on that in a moment) this is when you’ll get them. There will also be an opportunity to check out Rudolph memorabilia for sale. The Elves will provide you with the radio station to listen to the movie and the music, and then you’ll make your way to the parking area.
A pre-show Rudolph trivia video will kick off the event, followed by the Rudolph Movie Experience, an abbreviated retelling of the classic stop motion animation classic, which will project onto a giant screen. After the film, get ready for an impressive music, laser, special effects, and pyrotechnics show put together by Santore’s World Famous Fireworks, LLC!
Go for the Full Experience With Sweet Add-On Options
The fun starts on November 27 and will run every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until December 22. Each night has three time slots available at 5:30pm, 6:45pm, and 8pm. The Basic Package of one carload is $39.99.
There are also three add-on options: The Donut Package at $49.99 which includes a dozen of Ellms’ incredible cider donuts, the Peppermint Kettle Corn & Donut Package at $59.99 which includes the donuts along with peppermint kettle corn, and finally there’s the Family Package which includes all the above plus six to eight cups of hot cocoa.
Ellms expects tickets to sell quickly as they did with their prior drive-thru events, so get yours and build on your family holiday traditions today! (And don’t forget, they’re a Christmas tree farm too – you can get your tree starting the Friday after Thanksgiving.)
