I had my 2 Grandsons (10 and 7 yo) over the holiday wk end and had a wonderful day. Was disappointed that picnic area was no longer close to pool and no shelves to store cooler or basket. There is so much space available so I would like to see formal picnic area returned. Would like to see area near restrooms. Also noted that food lines were long. Please consider the young families w limited income. Thank you for considering.

NOT worth the 2 hour wait
Dec 2020 • Family
We wanted to do a drive through light display and while we expected a wait, this was INSANE! They trick you. You wait on the road and you get to the parking lot and you spend 30+ minutes snaking your way through a packed parking lot only to find you're NOT at the entrance... you're at another area to snake through!!! There is NO WAY OUT!! Once you're in, you're in. Kids bedtime be darned! I want to be clear, we didn't arrive late! We arrived at the parking lot at 6pm (got on the road earlier). We did not even make it to the lights until 8pm! The lights might be nice but NOTHING is worth this! We expected a wait, not a 2 hour wait snaking through a parking lot we were stuck in with no option to choose to leave! The radio station didn't even come in the whole ride through, it got staticky at times! If you want to wait 2 hours, have a kid crying and complaining they want to see lights over and over and smell car exhaust for a few lights, go for it... otherwise, go to Sharon Woods or Land of Illusion because this was Insane!

Affordable lights
Dec 2020
This is one of the more affordable Christmas light shows we've been to. It's only $7 per person. Get there early if possible to avoid a line. You pretty much drive trough the entire park and see plenty of lights.

Christmas Lights
Dec 2020
Great Christmas lights display. We arrived early nd sat in parking lot about 40 minutes. Lights turned on at 5:30 took about 45 minutes to drive through. The lights were great and would go back again. It cost $7.00 a person to get in. There are port potty in parking lot while you are waiting. They do see hot chocolate water and a few other refreshments or you could bring snacks while you wait. Thus is one of the best light displays we have seen

Terrible.
Dec 2020 • Family
Don’t do it. We have been sitting in their parking lot for more than an hour and a half. The only lights we have seen are the tail lights of other cars as we go through this impossibly slow line of cars with no way to get out of line. For a similar experience just go sit in rush hour traffic while the kids beg you to go home.

Amazing display
Dec 2020
This was the second year my husband and I had gone to the Christmas Nights of Lights at Coney. As others have said, this is not something you do if you're in a hurry or if you're not a patient person. We were there in 2019 on a weekday and yes, there was a crowd. But nothing like it was this year. I think it might be because this is something you can still do even during a pandemic when so much has been cancelled. We arrived at 5 pm and took our place. We were very close to the front of the line. At approximately 5:45 pm, they started cars through. We enjoy the staging of the lights and music. I can imagine kids would, too. It took about an hour, maybe a little more, to drive through. To us, it is an inexpensive way to welcome Christmas.

Hours of wasted time.
Dec 2020 • Family
If you want to sit in traffic for hours with restless kids this is for you. They have traffic funneled only in one direction causing problems.

Get in the right lane!
Nov 2020 • Family
We love the light show and we go almost every year. The lights are spectacular. We know to expect a long wait, especially if you go on a weekend. This year however, we got in the wrong lane. The right lane moved at least twice as fast, if not faster, from the moment we entered the staging area. If you go avoid getting in the left lane. When we paid admission we realized why. The right lane splits when you pay allowing more cars to go through twice as fast. We arrived at least 90 minutrs before the gates were supposed to close and we were one of the last cars to leave at 11:45. Otherwise, it is great and safe holiday fun.

Allow 2 hrs
Nov 2020 • Family
We thought we’d run through this in quickly. Wrong. Glad we had nothing else to do tonight because this took the entire evening. I will say, at $7/person, you will get one of the longest light shows in the US.

1/2 way thru the line, you’ll be offered cotton candy for $3, hot cocoa for $2, Carmel corn for $3. There are outhouses along the route in the parking lot.

Proud Americans Breathing Fumes
Nov 2020 • Family
The light show itself was technically good. As in, whoever coordinated the lights with the music, did a good job. However, I was really thrown off by the intense patriotism of the whole thing. If watching red, white, and blue lights flash along to “I’m Proud to be an American” while breathing the exhaust fumes of your fellow USA denizens sounds like a fun way to celebrate the holidays, then you’ll like this show. After 20 minutes or so of slowly snaking through the lights and listening to the least creative Disney and America First songs , finally they played a song (Carol of the Bells) worth watching the lights dance to, as the song is quite energetic and, well, good. $7 a person. Gonna say not worth it.
