“First rate attraction and beautiful Christmas Decorations --TIP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We went only for the shows and the Christmas decorations and we were not disappointed. We saw all the shows but we liked the Christmas Carol the best. There were many shops to look at Christmas trees beautifully decorated. The real treat is at night when the lights come on because it is the most amazing thing I have seen. Just breathtaking. Take the train ride as it is entertaining.

Food: We ate at Mollys Mill buffet and it was ok at best. The turkey was the rolled turkey and my wife actually thought we we eating pork. The sides were pretty good. They have many choices inside the park to eat at. I would select one of those next time because it is faster to be served and get on with the day.

TIP We bought our Silver dollar tickets at one of the tourism locations and got the second day free. Also if you book your hotel and shows you get a discount. We did not do that because we like the option of cancelling our trip if we need to without losing any money.

“Cold and rainy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Even though it was a cold and rainy afternoon and evening we really enjoyed the whole experience. The two shows we went to were high class and fun. the stores had a great variety to look at and the rides we did ride on were fun. The only negative thing is they could use a nicer place to eat or two. Where we ate was fine and tasted good but there isn't much variety for a sit down meal.

Came just for the x mas lights they are amazing best i have ever seen. We go every year and every year it has something new. The only downfall is the very large crowds

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Christmas time is the best! Iver 4 million lights, light parade, shows and music about the true meaning of Christmas! Season passes are great value!

“A step back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

A lovely step back in time. Our favorite time to go is in the winter time to see the holiday lights. They are just beautiful.

The main downfall to it is the price. Of course, you could say that about most theme park attractions nowadays and this is still the best theme park I have been to.

Also, if you have bad knees, back, etc. plan your best route around the park. There are some hills in it, but there is generally a way around it. Just ask someone which way to go or grab the map. You'll be thankful. This should not stop you from wanting to go-it's just a recommendation so you will have a great time while you are there.
