Winter Wonderscape: Reiman Gardens is pleased to announce its first outdoor walk-through holiday light show featuring a variety of immersive light displays throughout the entire 17-acre site. Walk through brightly lit tunnels, meander through fantasy lights falling like stars, view massive disco balls twirling to laser lights, enjoy a 20’ wide fountain and a wide array of other sparkling wonders. The kids will enjoy lighted sculptural forms including Peter Rabbit in the Edible Garden, the metamorphosis of the luna moth, penguins cavorting around the lake on skis, sleds and ice skates and the Campaniling kissing polar bears.

Due to new restrictions from the recent spike in COVID 19 cases in Iowa, we are unable to offer the indoor RG Express Holiday Train Display during the Winter Wonderscape light show. With your admission to the light show, you will receive a coupon for $2 off a visit to see the train display during regular daytime hours (must be used by January 9). We apologize for any inconvenience.

COVID-19 precautions: 

Help us keep you, your family and our community safe. 

  1. Face coverings are required.
  2. Our paths will be mostly one directional.
  3. Daily capacity will be limited to avoid overcrowded conditions.
