COTA’s Winter Wonderland closed tonight; carnival rides free tomorrow through Saturday

If you were planning to visit Circuit of the America’s Winter Wonderland tonight, bad news: It’s been cancelled due to anticipated wind and rain. All tickets will be automatically refunded.

There’s good news, too, though. Winter Wonderland will be open tomorrow through Saturday, and carnival rides, which previously required a fee in addition to admission, will be free.

This is the first year for COTA’s Winter Wonderland, which made a big splash when it was announced in November but has also been criticized for being too expensive.

The Trail of Lights closed for the season on Dec. 23; the Zilker Tree remains on display through Sunday.
