My daughter and I took my baby granddaughters. Our 2 year old couldn’t have been more excited. Hearing her scream wow the whole way through made one of the greatest memories ever! There are several lighted tunnels to drive through. If you have a sunroof, push it back so the kids can watch from above! David and his crew did an amazing job putting this light show together for everyone! It’s well worth the price and we’ll be going back several more times this year!
-Jill Lawrence
