Where Central Florida Celebrates the Holidays!

Light Up UCF, one of Orlando's most anticipated holiday attractions, provides Central Florida families and residents with an affordable family winter wonderland featuring ice skating, rides, and holiday attractions. Back for its tenth season, Light Up UCF will run from November 17 through December 31, and will feature cool rides, snowier nights, and bigger and brighter lights!

All of the fan favorites return, including the Ice Rink Pavilion, the Arctic Glide Ice Slide, the Ferris Wheel, the Winter Whirl, and Light Up Lane with photos with Santa. 

There are also free opportunities for families, including the Holiday Film Festival shown on a giant two-story screen, and the exciting new and improved Holiday Light Show with new songs and more lights choreographed to seasonal musical selections and falling snow!

Tickets are available at the CFE Arena box office and online. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Save on Skating ($9/ticket) and Ultimate Ride Package ($17/ticket). Other package offers include birthday party packages, fundraisers, field trips, and corporate events. For questions or more information, contact CFE Arena Group Sales at
