Attraction Facts

Welcome to the Southwest’s largest drive-through holiday attraction. Illumination and the “Holiday Boulevard” will be Arizona’s newest holiday tradition and destination where visitors immerse themselves in a universe filled with millions of LED and RGB lights paired with the latest in computer technology and synchronized to your family’s favorite holiday music. At Illumination, our goal is to ignite the holiday spirit and create unforgettable memories to last a lifetime!

Our physical address is 27701 N. Black Canyon Highway in Phoenix Arizona.  Illumination is conveniently located on the service road of Interstate 17 Freeway and Jomax Road in North Phoenix. This is just 8 minutes north of the 101 Loop intersection and just 25 to 35 minutes from anywhere in the valley. Coming from upstate? We are a quick 1 hour drive and for those starting your journey in Flagstaff, we are less than 2 hours to see the most spectacular holiday light show ever!

Simply, the technology behind Illumination is intense!  Illumination is the first fully synchronized, fully animated interactive drive-through light show in the southwest using the most advanced hardware and software the lighting world has to offer.  We are bringing the wow factor to your holiday season and the glow from our millions of synchronized lights will warm the hearts of every boy and girl that makes their way through their world of illumination.

Illumination is presented nightly, 7 days a week, from November 15, 2017 through January 14, 2018.

Our attraction opens at 6:00pm every night with a special guest flipping the power switch to turn on our lights.  Sunday – Thursday’s we will allow cars to drive in up until 10:30pm and on Friday, Saturday and Holidays until 11:30pm.

The journey through Illumination will take on average of 25 minutes in the car.  It all depends on traffic flow within the attraction and how busy we are at times.  We will have all of our elves out in full force  keeping everything flowing perfectly.  Once your journey through Illumination is complete, you will have the option to drive out or stay and visit our “Holiday Boulevard” where you can park, play and eat. It will be an area with an interactive walking family area filled with Santa’s Village, a “Christmas Winter Jumperland” zone for your kids to burn off all that eggnog while you get to relax and treats along with the best assortment of food trucks in town, a selfie area comprising of the largest holiday ornaments in the country. The perfect spot for the perfect family holiday photos. Come make memories at the Boulevard!

2017 is our inaugural year in Phoenix! And we plan to continue this tradition for years to come as we look forward to becoming Arizona’s newest holiday tradition. One day, we hope that your children will be taking their children to “Illumination”.

Illumination IS a community based event. We would have it no other way and it is part of our mission statement to make sure through this project we are a force of positive change in our community, especially over the holiday season when many need us most.  We have partnered with Phoenix Children’s Hospital to help those families who need our support to continue to receive the world class care they receive each and every day from those doctors, nurses and administrators doing God’s work each and every day.

We also welcome community groups to be part of our attraction by having school or community groups sing on site or volunteer at charity booths.  Please email us at info@illuminationaz.com if you are interested in being part of this attraction.

Because we care… The team behind Illumination is a group of passionate and dedicated parents and local business owners who love Arizona and everything it stands for.  The Phoenix area has been a big wonderful part of our lives, where we have raised our children.  There was always just a sense of the holiday spirit that’s been missing here in the valley and we wanted to bring the winter wonderland that all children should be able to experience during the holiday season that we have seen others enjoy in different places around the country.  We feel this is our opportunity to really make a difference and bring joy to every girl and boy.

We are so proud to partner with Phoenix Children’s Hospital this holiday season to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors who need our support.  In addition to PCH, we plan on holding several on site fundraising efforts to benefit various other non-profits in the Arizona who need all of our help throughout the year.  Want to contribute?  There are plenty of ways YOU can help.  Email us to inquire or make a donation at checkout to PCH where 100% of your generosity goes directly to the PCH Foundation.

We have truly thought of everything to make sure your experience is the best ever.  We have developed (4) 800 foot queue lines on site when you first drive in off the service road that can handle approximately 300 cars at one time to ensure as few backups onto the road as possible. Our check-in Elves will be using the best in ticket purchase and scanning software to make sure to keep the lines moving super smoothly doing their best to keep wait times down to a minimum.

The Holiday Boulevard

The Holiday Boulevard is a park, play and eat area that culminates the drive thru experience with an interactive walking family area of kid’s jumper land, food vendors, selfie stations and other holiday memory making experiences.  It can be accessed directly after the drive through light display Illumination attraction with an easy right-hand turn into the parking area designated especially for The Holiday Boulevard area.

The Holiday Boulevard is the icing on the sugar cookie and can be easily accessed directly after you have finished the drive-thru light display. It is an easy right-hand turn into the parking area designated especially for The Holiday Boulevard area.

We only accommodate outbound traffic.  Please enjoy the Holiday Boulevard at the end of the holiday drive thru lighting experience.
