Glow Gives Back

Supporting Families Who Can't Afford to Glow!

We understand how expensive the holiday season can be and the extra strain this can add to many families. Therefore, we’re giving away up to 1000 FAMILY PASSES* to help those who can’t otherwise afford to experience the magic of Glow!

Remember, this program is for those who don’t have the means to purchase tickets. Applying to this program for any other reason means you’ll be taking tickets away from others!

The application deadline for the initial Glow Gives Back dates has passed. However, feel free to apply to be considered for future dates.

Apply to be a Part of Our Glow Gives Back Program!


As part of “Glow Gives Back,” we are encouraging donations to help more people through the holiday season. For those who purchase or redeem tickets on select dates,* we are providing guests with the option to donate to local charities we’ve partnered with this year. Visit our calendar to get your tickets today. Every little bit helps!

*Dec 5-6, Dec 11-12
