Lumaze Discount Tickets in Seattle & What to Expect

Lumaze Lost in Lights Discount Tickets in Seattle + What to Expect

Lumaze: Lost in Lights is a new indoor Christmas light display that arrived in Seattle this Christmas season for their first year. This is located at Pier 91 on the Seattle waterfront & they feature beautiful light displays as well as a number of kid-friendly features that make this a spot the whole family will enjoy!

We had the opportunity to check it out recently & wanted to share our experience with you with tips & ways to save with Lumaze Lost in Lights Discount tickets for your visit.

What is Lumaze Light Show:

Lumaze Light Display in Seattle

Lumaze Christmas Lights Festival is here in Seattle for the first year (they are also located in Pittsburgh) & they are an indoor Christmas light festival located on the waterfront. They have 2 stories of light displays, kids activities, food & drink & a Christmas shopping area. Plenty of opportunities for taking darling photos & enough activities that your kids could spend several hours having a blast. Activities include everything from a life-size Lite Brite to mini train rides to LED teeter-totters & swings. Parents will enjoy the delicious food trucks with gourmet offerings, light-up drinks and shopping in the Christmas Market.

Kid-Friendly Features:

1st Floor:

Train at Lumaze for kids

Louis the Trackless Train – For those of you with kids obsessed with trains, they will love this mini train right at the front of the event. The train ride is included in your admission. It is a small area that kids will ride around in a circle, but still fun for kids to ride it. It leaves every 30 minutes from the “station”.

LED Swings at Lumaze

LED Swings – This is definitely one of the most popular spots in all of Lumaze with the color-changing LED swings. Kids, teens & adults all wanted to try these swings & take some fun selfies. It is so fun as they are constantly changing colors & they have a whole, long row of swings. So, even though you may have to wait a few minutes for a swing, it shouldn’t be a long wait because of the larger quantity available.

Bouncy Unicorns – kids will go crazy over the bouncy unicorns (even my tween & teen since it was quiet when we were there, so they participated too). Bouncing with these unicorns provided so much laughter for all of us, especially as they’d topple over just as we attempted to take pictures of them.

LIfe Size Lite Brite

Life-Size Lite Brite – on the bottom floor, there is a special section for kids, next to the bouncy unicorns. They have an indoor Lite Brite, tables set up to write letters to Santa (with a big red mailbox to send them) & color Christmas pictures. The life-size Lite Brite is the definite attraction here, though, including parents who want to try their hand at designs, too. Someone had designed a red heart when we were there & it made for fun pictures.

Gingerbread House Playground & LED Teeter-Totters – They have a full-size playground set up along with multiple LED teeter-totters which are a lot of fun for pictures!

Santa Visit at Lumaze

Pictures with Santa – Santa is set up in the very back of the Christmas market on the first floor & you can take your own pictures with Santa, which I like to have the photos myself! Totally free to get pictures with Santa! And Santa’s chair has lights, which make the pictures more special too!

2nd Floor:

Christmas Light Garden – The entire 2nd floor is a giant Christmas light garden, filled with tons of fun photo opps that kids, teens & adults will love. These displays have so much color & variety which we loved!

Lumaze Light Garden Displays

The only thing to know about this 2nd floor, though, is that because it’s a 2 story building, the floors are not tall. The lights are all off, so it’s just the Christmas lights illuminating the big event room. However, because there are so many lights, it is not dark, but quite bright. This can be helpful for parents with little kids so you don’t have to worry about not seeing your kids as well as they run thru the light garden. But for most folks, it is a bit disappointing to see the light displays in a brighter environment and not in the dark, so this is important to know before you go, so that you know what to expect.

Scavenger Hunt – When you head upstairs, they will give you a Scavenger Hunt page & kids have to hunt for 6 hidden presents & get stamps. Present the card at the end & you’ll get a prize (spoiler – it’s a candy cane).  This is a fun activity for your active kids who want something to look for while they are exploring the Christmas light garden

Interactive Hanging Lights at Lumaze

Interactive Hanging Lights – This was definitely the favorite light display for my girls! They loved walking thru this & trying to wiggle thru without touching them for fun. It’s fun to take pictures & selfies in this spot too!

LED Hopscotch – We all had a blast with the color-changing hopscotch tiles that you jump on – these worked so well & it was fun to video each other as we jumped from tile to tile. This was definitely one of the top spots for all of us – and my girls commented they wanted to find these to put in their room, they were just that much fun!

Hanging Picture Frames –  Our girls loved this area & taking silly pictures and this is sure to be a teen favorite as we saw many teens taking selfies here with the fun lighted frames

horse and carriage at lumaze

Visit with Princesses – We ran into 2 princesses in the carriage area, but they were also in the lighted castle area visiting with kids earlier in the evening. So, this is such a fun surprise for little ones to meet one of their favorite princesses amongst all the sparkly lights!

There is also live music every night with local performers and a Christmas Market for some holiday shopping (my kids loved the shops selling light-up items to wear in the venue).

We felt this was definitely a place we got our money worth as our kids definitely could have stayed here for hours exploring & enjoying all the fun activities on both floors with no extra costs for any of the activities. The only downside, like I mentioned, is just that it’s not dark inside around the Christmas light displays upstairs, which I think we were expecting. But having an indoor venue where we didn’t worry about rain or cold weather was so nice and our kids loved the unique activities at this venue, so it was definitely a hit!

What food & drink options are there?

Waffle Cone with Pulled Pork at Lumaze event

They have a variety of food trucks at the Lumaze event & I was honestly impressed with the quality of the food trucks as there were some trucks offering very unique & delicious food options. My personal favorite was the Munch Munch Waffles truck – they had both sweet & savory combos. The pulled pork in a waffle cone with green apple coleslaw & cranberries was amazing! Such an interesting combo that I didn’t think I’d like, but it was so tasty!

My kids also loved the Mini Donut Factory truck & the red velvet mini donuts on a stick. They even had fried oreos, which they were eyeing, if your kids want a really sweet treat!

Glow Drinks at Lumaze

Both kids & adults will love the Glow Cups at the main drink area – kids can get sodas/lemonade or even “Shirley Temple” drinks in their Glow Cups, while adults can enjoy a cocktail. Take these with you for some fun photo opps amongst the light displays. We have kept ours for fun at home, too.

When Should You Go? 

The hours that it is open are 4-10pm on weekdays & 1-10pm on Saturdays & Sundays & during Christmas break (the week of Christmas & New Year’s).  They are open every day except Christmas. And this event runs through Saturday January 4, 2019.

This is great timing as it does not need to just be an evening event for those of you with little ones not wanting to be out so late in the evening. Since this is an indoor venue, you can head there during the day on the weekend & have a blast for a few hours & still get home in plenty of time for dinner & an early bedtime.

What to know before you Go?


This is all indoors, so you will want coats for standing in line for the shuttle, but you won’t need them once you’re inside the venue. The actual venue is the cruise ship terminal right on the docks. It’s a large event center where the cruise ship customers will pass thru as they board or disembark from cruise ships.

This is a two story building, but there is an escalator & elevator if you need to bring strollers or wheelchairs.

Parking is an extra $15 so factor that into your budget & you will park in a lot & take a shuttle bus over to the Lumaze venue. There are no other parking areas around as this is in the middle of the industrial waterfront area, so this is the only option for parking unless you get dropped off by someone or take an Uber.

{I will say that the parking lot was tricky to find – stick with your Google directions until the end when you will want to follow the signs for Pier 91 Cruise Ship Parking with a short ramp off to the right. We missed it the first time & had to do a full circle before finding it as the Lumaze signs were not the easiest to see, so just drive slowly as you get close to the parking area.} This area is an industrial area of the waterfront so it’s just a little confusing when looking for the parking lot, so watch for the Lumaze signs.

There are no extra costs associated with Lumaze except for the parking. All of the other activities at Lumaze (including the mini train ride) were included in the admission price, which is why it can be a great value if you stay for several hours letting the kids play & take advantage of all of the activities. Plus, make sure to check out the discount ticket options for ways to save big on tickets!
