Came here during Christmas with a group for the lights and to ride the train, very pretty. Will return again. There is a petting zoo and educational area during the winter lights.

Very entertaining. We took the train ride around the park. The kids enjoyed the petting zoo and we had a kios pop when leaving that was delicious.
