Coney Island Lights review
If you are looking for a new holiday tradition this year in Cincinnati, check out the drive-through light show at Coney Island.
For those of you familiar with Coney Island's layout, this light show is surprisingly long! It winds through the parking lot in a coil-like pattern to make the most of the space. All the lights are synced to a soundtrack playing on a special radio station. I'm not sure how long the music loop is, but we didn't hear any repeats and the music varied from classic to modern to country.
The show was varied with older style lights and more modern LED lights. There are a few tunnels and a lip-syncing snowman. There is even an RV parked with Santa walking around inside!
This seems silly but for those of you out there with automatic headlights, you might want to figure out how to turn on your parking lights because you can't have your headlights on during the show. I've had my car for five years and I'm not sure I've ever switched the headlights on or off manually and finding out how to do so in my car isn't super intuitive.
My pictures don't do it justice (smartphone + darkness + moving car do not mix) but I'll include them anyway.
Admission is purchased only at the gate; $6 each (children under 3 are free).
