KODAK (WATE)- Hundreds of thousands of lights and five weeks of setup–just two parts of the intricate setup of the Shadracks lightshow in Kodak. The show is one of six different Shadracks shows, this year’s theme — Santa’s Safari.
“We actually manufacture them onto steal which we refer to as a panel or element in our show. Then we weld them all together, put the lights on them, and when we get here we put them up and together,” said Chris Elliott, show manager.
Elliott says the busiest night since opening in November was 1,200 cars. He says there is no way to tell how many lights are used in every element, but, that there are miles of electricity cords and cables connecting each piece to the other.
There are two parts to the show: a panel show with a story-line and a synchronized light show set to music. The show’s owner has a background in music and teaching, even creating some original Christmas songs just for the drive-through show. Every note is assigned a specific light.
Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland is open every night from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Visitors can also visit Santa’s Workshop for photos with Santa, food, and a petting zoo.
