I see no need in going anywhere else to see this kind of a show when this is right here in our backyard

-Steve Smith

Best light show around! It was better than Coney Island lights abs lights under Louisville! My kids loved it, we wish we could get a pass to drive in multiple times throughout the season!

-Lindsay Sellers- 
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!
