The second annual COTA winter wonderland was a lot better than the first year. The Chinese inspired lighted displays were spectacular. Free parking with shuttle or upgraded parking if you choose.

Overall, I thought this was worth the $16 entry. The free photo spots, no parking fee, good facility for moving people, light displays, and winter feel, makes the fee worth it. Our kids are grown but it was fun to enjoy the photo spots and...More

Turn 12 has amazing views of a significant amount of the track. My husband and I were so impressed by how much time we could see the cars. Great area to see overtaking as well. We'd definitely sit there again.
