Oh, the horror!

All of Miami watched in horror as the images of a fire at Santa’s Enchanted Forest took over social media on Sunday. Around 7:30 p.m. commuters along the Palmetto could see that Miami’s beloved Christmas theme park, which is scheduled to open on Nov. 1, was engulfed in a small blaze. Apparently the fire was related to a power line, which seems about right since Santa’s Enchanted Forest is essentially a giant tangle of Christmas lights and extension cords wrapped around trees year round.

We have yet to know the full extent of the damage, but in order for Christmas to go on as scheduled this year, we really need to know the status of the following attractions at Santa’s.
