Candy Rush – Atlanta’s Newest Holiday Attraction

One thing I LOVE about living in Atlanta is the amount of memory-making opportunities. We got it all right in our beautiful city, and this year we are adding an animated light show you do not want to miss, Candy Rush! And I am not alone in how I feel about the newest holiday attraction! Due to overwhelming response, World of Illumination has extended their season to January 24th and will be unveiling a “remix edition” of its show with new music! That’s right! Get ready to head back to this fun-filled and engaging animated light show.

World of Illumination, the world’s largest drive-through animated light show, unveiled its brand new holiday attraction Friday, November 20, 2020 and it has been packed every night since! Located in the parking lot of Six Flags White Water in Marietta, this spectacular light show will now run nightly through January 24, 2021.

Candy Rush features millions of colorful lights and hundreds of animated displays synchronized to beloved Christmas music. This holiday spectacular showcases such elements as a more than 40-foot tall trio of candy canes, larger-than-life size sweets and treats, sugar plum fairies and a gingerbread village. Additionally, a 500-foot long RGB LED tunnel doubles as Santa’s magic portal, and popular Christmas characters make an appearance throughout. Even Kris Kringle himself will be on deck live and in person on opening night to wave to those driving through the attraction.

World of Illumination’s event is one mile in length and takes about 30 minutes to drive through. The event is also uniquely COVID-friendly, as visitors enjoy the show from the safety and comfort of their cars. Online reservations are also required, making the experience totally touchless and socially safe, while simultaneously controlling traffic to decrease waiting times.

“We are thrilled to present Candy Rush to Marietta and the surrounding area,” said World of Illumination co-founder Yakir Urman. “We use state-of-the-art technology that will transport you into a dazzling world of visual arts and music, all while ensuring the safety of our guests. Buckle up and prepare for the ride of your life!”

World of Illumination’s Candy Rush is open daily, including holidays, from 6:00-10:00 p.m. Ticket prices start at $35 plus applicable taxes and fees per vehicle on weeknights and $45 plus taxes and fees per car on weekends and holidays. Tickets are available for purchase at and online reservations are required. A portion of proceeds benefits the Make-A-Wish Georgia Foundation.
