Last week I got the chance to take my family to Red Nose Ranch in Utah! It was SO MUCH FUN! Most of the time you are in a big barn (building) that is decorated so pretty. There is a seating area with heaters, and you get to meet Santa, visit the petting zoo, and you can reserve a private fire pit to make s’mores and play games (The North Pole and The South Pole). You will go outside to go on a wagon ride around the ranch so bring blankets and dress really warm. It is chilly inside the building too, but my kids were down to their jackets with no hats/gloves, etc by the end of the night.
The Red Nose Ranch Christmas wagon rides is the newest and most unique Christmas activity in Utah County. Brought to you by the same folks who have provided the Sleepy Hollow Haunted Halloween Wagon Rides in years past.
While there you can also buy snacks and drinks. We got treats for the animals and my kids loved feeding them! We even got to see a reindeer! Rudolph and a candy cane rider joined us on our wagon ride. The ride is a lot of fun. We got to watch/listen to the Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer story as we had a wagon ride around the ranch, and there were a lot of lights and blowups that matched the story.
The fire pits are great. There are two inside, The North Pole and The South Pole, and then one outside in a teepee. I enjoyed having a private place where we could put our stuff down. There is a big table with benches, a fire pit (s’mores supplies for 8 included), a cornhole game, and several chairs. We spent a lot of time back there and it was nice.
Before we left, we picked out a Christmas tree! This was a lot of fun. There are a lot of great trees to choose from, but we picked one that matched the height we needed and it looks amazing! Overall we had an amazing time at Red Nose Ranch and my family can’t wait to go back again next year!

We offer an entertaining wagon ride featuring a wonderful audio narration of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer with music and sound effects accompanied by lights, scenes, natural woods, and plenty of Christmas atmosphere. The experience is festive, fun, and memorable all together. What especially sets Red Nose Ranch apart from other Utah Christmas activities is our use of horses. Candy Cane Riders and other characters are on horseback and interact with guests on the wagon. You will witness beautiful horses and skillful horsemanship as part of this fun Christmas Activity.
