Carriage Rides at Winter Wonderland

  • Dates and times for 2021 will be announced
  • Reservations are required; the reservation online portal will open in Fall 2021 with the date to be announced
  • Carriage rides provided by Hileman Carriage Service

The extremely popular carriage rides will be back in 2021! Take a horse-drawn carriage ride through Folepi's Winter Wonderland! Hileman Carriage Service will provide the rides in carriages decorated for the holidays, giving visitors a new way to experience the Festival of Lights.


Passengers will board the carriage in the parking lot of the Fon du Lac Golf Course Club House, which is adjacent to the Winter Wonderland admission booth. The carriage will travel through the display along with the flow of motorized vehicles. All carriage hard surfaces will be sanitized between rides.

Driving Directions to get to the Carriage Rides

From Interstate 74 take Exit 98-Pinecrest Drive. Proceed along Pinecrest Drive, turn right onto Muller Road, and then turn right onto Springfield Road. The intersections will be marked with signage. The northbound lane of Springfield Road will have two lanes of traffic. Use the center of the lane designated for local traffic. Those driving to Winter Wonderland for the carriage rides do not need to get in the lane for Winter Wonderland traffic. 

At the Winter Wonderland entrance, turn onto Par 3 Lane in the lane closest to the residential driveways, and proceed forward to a parking area. This is where you will leave your vehicle and board your carriage.

Price and Making Reservations

Cost is $80 for groups of up to six people, and online reservations are required. The online reservation portal will not open until Fall 2021, and the date will be announced. The carriage rides sold out very quickly in 2020, so once the portal opens don't delay making your reservation. Please note that reservations are first come, first served, and a wait list is not available.

In Case of Bad Weather

In the event of bad weather with temperatures below 20 degrees or in case of ice, carriage rides will be rescheduled with the dates to be announced.
