  • My husband and I have walked a short portion of the Bull Run Trail on several occasions. Usually we go in late afternoon, starting at the park store, and rarely run into more than a handful of other p...  more »
  • Wonderful holiday experience! Have been a few times. Great display, easy to get around, it's all driving, except the end, which is a park/carnival. I would give it five, but once had someone smoking in their vehicle ahead of us on a warm night, and couldn't keep our windows down because of it.
  • Third time visiting in past 5 years. Certainly worth the cost and unlike what a few reviews say, there are some additions each year but the mainstays are the same...traditions are good. One mention that is indeed a headache: If you visit any evening after December 14th there will be lines...the closer to Christmas you get the longer the lines and I mean VERY long lines. Furthermore, the more cars in line the more hurried you are through the scenery and the lights from some cars does distract. In short, go late November or early December. My rating would by 5 except for the traffic. This is a special event if you are the only car, or one of few, on the dark road. Lovely lights and spectacular displays!
  • Really awesome setup. The entire family enjoyed it. The carnival at the end of the light show looked fun.
  • Horrible waste of time. 2 hour line on a week day for 20 min drive thru sporadic displays, accompanied with divers that have no etiquette - TURN OFF CAR HEADLIGHTS people! Signs all over the place for 10 mph speed + do not stop yadayda BUT no reminder for the ignorant to turn off lights, which is the most important part of the experience. So imagine yourself driving thru this followed by beamed truck. :( And yes people STOP to take pictures - I guess signs mean nothing either way. One can only wish ... :( Visit Galaxy of Lights in Huntsville or the one in Philadelphia to experience/know what true Christmas drive thru lights are all about or supposed to be.
  • We went early on a week day and had a short wait (5 cars or less). I have heard the queue can get long; but it would still be worth it if you like Christmas lights and music.
