From the time your “Golden Sleigh” departs the loading platform until King Ludwig bids you his final farewell in this 3D adventure riders are constantly bombarded with color, music, and motion that will keep you wondering, “What else could they possibly do?” Your sleigh will pitch and rotate through the 40,000-square-foot show building, as you ride through the Ludwig's castle and the woods around it.

This Falcons Treehouse-designed attraction opened on May 1, 2005 and immediately won raves from theme park fans, winning Theme Park Insider's Best New Attraction Award that year. It closed permanently at the end of the 2017 season.
