Awesome Place to visit. Just know that some of the water features may be running year round. Don’t let small children get ahead of you.

In town for business and looking for non alcohol diversion.
Highly recommend this holiday light "drive through. Turn your radio to identified channel and be ready to drive slowly.
It's not high tech not over-done. Just nice way to chill in your car for the drive.
Lights for all ages!
Not sure what dinosaurs have to do with holidays but can see appeal for kids.
