It’s not quite Thanksgiving yet, but if you’re already feeling the holiday spirit, there are plenty of options, including an immersive experience in the southern suburb of Tinley Park.
The Amaze Light Festival, located at Odyssey Fun World, features dazzling exhibits made up of a million lights, a one-of-a-kind stage show, a holiday market and more, according to its website. Once inside, you’ll wander through different themed worlds and may even meet “Zing” and “Sparky” – the characters from the Amaze storybook.
Every two hours, visitors can catch the Amaze stage show, featuring a live singer, dancing and, of course, “Zing” and “Sparky!” Afterwards, you can head to the toyporium and the candy store to pick up treats or the perfect souvenir.
