This drove through light show was so much fun!  My three kids loved it and so did my parents. The coordination of the lights to the music was so fun. It was a good length and the wait to get in wasn’t terribly long. At the end my kids wanted to go again!  I highly recommend this and it will likely become a tradition in our home.
