We were visiting when the outdoor light show was on and it was definitely a highlight. Our trip was a Christmas present to our mom, and it was definitely what she enjoyed most!

Small but very nice. It only takes a few hours to go through. The walrus and polar bears stole the show. It’s very small but worth a visit if you have young kids.
