TIPS↑ top

  • The entrance to the venue is on the southbound side of Route 1 (across the street from the stadium). Plan for big time traffic - like gameday traffic.

  • We recommend playing your own Christmas playlist vs. tuning into the 88.7 radio station so you don't have to hear commercials. (Thought the commercials were unnecessary and take away from the experience).

  • Turn your headlights off as you drive through the display for prime viewing.

  • Leave a few car lengths ahead of you for prime viewing. It's just a nicer view. On busy nights they double up the line so it's harder to see both sides of the display.

2-starPrepare for LONG waits in traffic
I didn't expect this to be the case, but prepare for LONG waits in traffic. Like, REALLY long. It's crazy, and kid of ruins the excitement and any magic of the lights. For a venue that handles large numbers of fans for football games, you'd think that there would be a smoother traffic pattern to get here. If the traffic is just as bad for football games, I guess I'm glad I don't have season tickets. Do better.
3-starMagic of Lights - traffic delays logistics
This happened last year as well - the traffic that you sit in to get to this display is ridiculous. Doesn't matter which was you enter - I'd say go as early (after dark) that you can, or go later in the evening. The 6:30pm - 8:30pm slot is rather a traffic nightmare. While the light show is decent, the annoyance of getting there is certainly not worth it.
2-starAn hour and a half wait with 3 kids ridiculous
We showed up at 6:30 with a carload of kids and didn't expect to have to wait for an hour and a half. There were about 10 lines (not an exaggeration) of vehicles and we were sandwiched in. God forbid there was an emergency - there would have been no way to escape. They took forever to have the lines go through and by that time, the kids were miserable and wanted to leave. Never again!
2-starMagic of ripoffs
We went last night. I paid $50 online to see a $30 at the gate. It's just OK. Not worth $50 for sure.
