I enjoy it from the Loop Parkway when I'm driving back to Long Beach. That's about as close as I'm going to get - my cousin went last year and she said it wasn't worth the money.

Not that it isn't nice, but you think they could charge $10 for it.

They moved it this year to the parking lot of the Jones Beach Theatre (No. 5) so I don't think you can see it from the Loop anymore! We used to see it from there too.

funny you say that because we bring our kids eacvh year and it semed that we drove through quickly this year, we actually re-entered twice because it was too quick. I agree $17 is a rip off, but th ekids loved it and LOVED to see the real reindeers!!Chat Icon Santa was horrible, he looked like Kramer from Seinfeld dressed up like SantaChat Icon

Nope. I work in the city now so I don't drive the Loop much at night anymore.

We used to take our telescope to the park in Point Lookout to see all the lights. Chat Icon

Do they have anything else besides the lights? Like hot cocoa, or something to do if you want to get out?

no you can;t see it from Loop Parkway anymore. While I did enjoy it, it did seem smaller this year and $17 is a bit much for it!

We took the kids the other night and I was Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon at the $17!!! We went last year and I guess I dont remember it being $17...or it was less? Whatever the case, I don't think it was worth $17 either. I made my DH drive around 8x to get our money's worth. J/K but we did go around 2x...my 4 year old said "Lets go home" somewhere in the middle of the 2nd trip around LOL

I went one year thanks to a Z100 contest. I won a "Free carload pass"..Anyway, It was nice, but, im glad we didnt pay. Not worth $17 IMHO.
