We went to the first showing at 9:30 on a Saturday. There were quite a few people, and no available seating left on the chairs or benches provided - so go a bit early unless you bring your own chair or want to sit on...More

This is a must see light show. We loved it! Twenty four minutes of eye-candy illumination with enjoyable musical score. The first show of the night is packed. We arrived at 9:25 for the second show and the crowd was a quarter the size. We...More
