It was OK the place and shows, but they have another fee that was never mentioned so it was a little bit upsetting.

It’s alright with the show but if you ask me to go just for the lights. It was just not impressed me with the extra hiding charged.

The only issue we experienced was redeeming the Groupon.. you have to exchange for a paper ticket, but they had no signage saying that. Long lines, people had no idea what to do. Signs would have helped tremendously. Otherwise, the attraction itself was amazing and nice. Very pretty. We didn't make it to the acrobats, bummer, but overall was enjoyable.

Illuminate was Amazing.. I did not find that going through Groupon saved any money as there was 3.50 fee per ticket at the gate. I could have gone without using Groupon

About Illuminate

Illuminate is a festival immersed in a world of wonder and light as you wander through a maze of illuminated sculptures scaling nearly 30 feet tall. Explore the Forbidden City, where you will be greeted by the emperor and his terracotta warriors. Pass through the belly of the whale for a glistening look at life Under the Sea, with dolphins, sharks, jellyfish and perhaps even a mermaid or two. And let's not forget Christmas Village, home to jolly 'ole Saint Nick himself!
