We went to the light show on their second night--Sunday night before Thanksgiving--about 8:00. One reviewer advised to be sure that everyone went to the bathroom before getting in line since there would be lots of cars and no way to pull out for a pit stop. So we did that. But when we got to CMS, we saw three lanes leading to the ticket booth 1/4 to 1/2 mile away. You could pay $30 instead of $20 to get in the express lane. But there were no other cars in sight. We drove right up to the ticket booth! One other car left just as we approached, and one car came up behind us just after we got through the booth. But it certainly wasn't crowded that night. We are not NASCAR people at all, but very much enjoyed our visit, and driving on the track for about half-way around. It was very cold walking through the Bethlehem Village, and there were no actors there, but it was still nice. We felt it was worth our money to stop on our way south!
