This was amazing. I took my 7 year old and three teenage girls, and they all were absolutely amazed. I had read there were thousands of Jack-O-Lanterns, but until you see it, you cannot imagine it.

My wife and I waited for over an hour to view this. It was truly not worth it. First and foremost, selling beer? There are kids and infants all over the place and you are selling alcohol? That is just a disaster waiting to happen as well as beyond irresponsible. Second, there are so many people let through at a... More

Wow!! Great carvings! I hoped it would be worth the wait as we went early and still stood in line for over 2 hours. It was definitely worth it. Incredibly talented folks did these carvings. Very cool with the music signaling the shift in time during the walk. A little pricey but it was very cool. Glad we did it.

This was a neat festival for the whole family. My biggest complaint was parking. We ended up having a 15 minute walk back to the festival, where we waited in line for over an hour to get in. It would've been nice for those who purchased their tickets online to have been able to get in without standing in the... More

This is AWESOME!! The artists that carved these pumpkins are VERY TALENTED. If you have a Thorntons card you get a discount. We are not from there so we do not have one so I'm not sure of how much the tickets are with the discount. People have complained about the cost of the tickets but if you go and... More

We went for the 5000 professionally carved pumpkins and were in awe! Highly recommend! Go early because the line was long.

Huge waste of time! Website says trail open until midnight. Not clear at all that tickets can't be purchased on sight. Drove 1.5 hrs for nothing. Poor poor advertising!

This is a very nice park for walking a three mile loop around the forested hill or hiking the trails that go up and down the hill. There are a metric ton of geocaches for the hard core cacher. Just be sure to bring insect repellent for the mosquitoes and ticks and a camera for all the deer that you'll... More

We were looking for a park/playground for our kids to burn off some energy! This was a huge and beautiful park! However it was packed the evening we tried to go...we drove through the park (which was a nice drive) but instead of fighting the crowds and parking we found an elementary school and had a great playground that wasn't...

I just returned from a hike into Iroquois Park and found the northern overlook has been totally demolished and reviewed the other overlooks. Stone blocks which were present in 1930's have been removed. On the other overlooks roots are invading the blocks . The Olmstead Plan called for several overlooks which he had visited with panoramic views of the surrounding... More
