Our first time visit to the Winterfest Lights and it was great. Cold - but good. The only bummer - was - I got seated on the end - outside and had a hard time seeing all the lights on the inside of the fence - was also hard to take pictures. Other than that - it was good. The... More

With some people complaining about the lack of a "wow factor" with the Winterfest Christmas lights, let me just say this: 1) admission is only $5 and 2) they drive you around on a tram. You don't even have to walk. Where else can you get such an experience at that price? You can bring a whole family and not... More

Very average display missing a wow factor. We were unsure where to park and were not even sure we were going In the right direction. When we arrived the staff were very friendly and helpful. A good attraction for children, bundle up the tram ride can be rather chilly.

This is a great place to bring kids for the playground and the walkway out on the bay. Many families crab off the pier. This is a great place to run or walk. Your pet will love it here as well. There are many options for summer sports and camps for the entire family. There is also a senior league... More

We enjoy the Christmas lights every year. The tram ride thru the park is so in lighting to share with people who are filled with the spirit of Christmas is always very special

We have been thur 3 times this year and if we were going to Ocean city agian before Christmas we would definitely go thru a fourth time. The displays are absolutely beautiful and well worth the small ticket fee of $ 5.00. We have only gone thru during the week and have never encountered more then a 10 to 15... More

Everyone becomes a kid during the tram ride through a park filled with thousands of lights on theme and or animated displays. Parking easy, the reception tent bright, warm and cheerful. Where else can an "adult" be entertained for $5. Did I mention all the little children who were excited by sharing the experience with parents and grand-parents.

Never get old, really a super fun time. They add alittle something every year and the Santa is the best. He reminds me of the Santa from Miracle on 34th street.
