A Holiday Experience for All Ages

Indoors & Heated!

A BRAND NEW Family-Friendly Holiday experience

A BRAND NEW Christmas event in Northeast Ohio.

The production team that created the Ohio Christmas Factory has 22 years of experience creating spooky seasonal Halloween events – The Factory of Terror & Akron Haunted Schoolhouse & Laboratory.  This year, our production team has created a one-of-a-kind Christmas experience with lots of holiday lights & sights but NO FRIGHTS (except for Oogie Boogie ;-)!

The Ohio Christmas Factory will feature: A 15-minute light show synched to music on our 5-story entrance façade custom built by a design company featured on ABC’s Great Christmas Light Fight, lots of Christmas characters, seasonal photo ops and selfie stations, Christmas cocktails for guests over 21, a giant gingerbread house, Christmas tree stroll and more!

With over 50,000 square feet of indoor & heated space, the Ohio Christmas Factory is sure to become a holiday tradition.
