A ‘World Of Illumination’ Animated Light Show Is Dazzling Atlanta This Holiday Season

Get ready for Candy Rush, Atlanta.

Lights, colors, and candy: A World Of Illumination, touted as the “World’s Largest Drive-Thru Animated Light Show” has brought its Candy Rush spectacle to Atlanta until January 3, 2021.

In the pandemic era, we’ve seen an influx of drive-in/drive-thru entertainment in every way, shape, and form. Whether it’s movies, concerts, or haunted houses, the drive-thru has come in clutch as a vehicle for the people to continue enjoying their favorite forms of entertainment in a safe and distanced way. As such, A World Of Illumination is pulling up to Atlanta this year in similar fashion.

“Sugar plum fairies. A gigantic gingerbread village. Sweets as far as the eye can see,” the company writes on its website. “World of Illumination comes to Atlanta this November with Candy Rush, the world’s largest holiday drive-through theme park that features life-sized lit-up singing treats, a 40-foot tall candy cane trio and fully animated Christmas characters — all set to music you know and love. A mile-long drive-through show featuring nearly two million lights, the all-new Candy Rush is a socially safe must-see experience for the entire family.”


Each show from the World Of Illumination features RGB LED lights capable of casting 16 million unique colors. So if you multiply that by the 2 million synchronized lights at Candy Rush, that’s like….a bajillion colors.

This year, the company has made drive-thru experience completely touchless. As such, all tickets must be reserved online, after which, the entire show can be enjoyed from the safety of your vehicle. Greeters are standing by however, with hand sanitizer on the ready if you so need it.

Candy Rush is now on until January 3, 2021, at Six Flags White Water at 250 Cobb Parkway N #100. Tickets start at $35 and must be purchase online.
