MASON, Ohio (LEX 18) — Winterfest is returning to Kings Island with more than five million lights, nighttime rides and blue hot chocolate.

This year's festival runs on select nights from Nov. 22 through Dec. 31.

The amusement park will be transformed into 10 enchanting winter wonderlands.

More than 5 million lights will adorn the grounds and holiday characters will spread Christmas merriment, including Jack Frost, Candy Cane, and the Sugar Plum Fairy.

There will be something for everyone, like ice skating on the Royal Fountain and seeing the park's Eiffel Tower transform into a 314-foot tall Christmas tree.
