so glad we got to do this. It was a neat experience. A little pricey for what you get but it was worth it for a one time event.

Took the in-laws and little children to this. All had a great time. Just long enough for the three-year-old. Beautiful fun event for someone coming from Georgia.

My husband paid $85 for him and I. I think they do the sleigh rides when it snows, and the carriage rides when there is no snow on the ground. We enjoyed it. I hope this helps.
