Imagine, if you can, rolling hills as far as the eye can see glowing with lights – some 59,000 stemmed balls illuminated by fiber optics, each about a foot off the ground on stakes, fading constantly from dark blue to green to red to yellow – through the gambit of colors. It’s not something that is easily imagined until you walk the paths through the spectacle, and even then, it is hard to believe.The display, entitled Bruce Munro: Light at Sensorio, is an epic creation that will continue to grow in the years to come.

This is a must see experience. Get there before sunset to fully enhance the visual assault and enjoyment. Then stay when everything in the sky is dark. Just go - it’s great.

It is completely worth the entrance fee to Sensorio. The lights are beautiful! We sat by the fire pit and enjoyed a glass of wine listening to the live entertainment after walking the light paths.

Definitely worth the trip. It was a bit cold in May when we visited but still pretty stunning of an experience as dusk turned into night and the lights turned on. The amount of people was the only negative out of the experience. It was way too packed and overwhelming which took away from some of the coolness of the art.

A unique art experience, I felt immersed as if I was walking through the set of Avatar or the Wizard of Oz. Good for all ages, as the dirt path allows mobility for strollers, wagons & wheelchairs. We spent close to 2-hours at the exhibit. You will want to bring a camera - but no flash photography please!

Very pleasant experience especially if you have nice weather or you are dressed accordingly for colder weather. We were lucky that the evening was quite warm. The only draw back is the price. Regular admission was $43.00 for adults and $22.00 for children 3-12 and for the time spent there we feel it was a little much. Lucky for us our 8 year old grandson enjoyed the experience.

I have driven by this place a couple of times, and wanted to check it out each time, but wasn't able to. Made a point of doing so this trip. Glad I saw it, as it's something I wanted to experience. We walked in without reservations and were able to get tickets with no problems. The lights are beautiful, there are food options if you want to sit by the firepits and enjoy some live music. I definitely do think it's overpriced for what it is - $50 for a small trail around the installation is a bit steep, especially for those with families. I think it will be more worth the value once the planned expansion is completed.

Enjoyed it. Be prepared for cold evenings. There are firepits in the food and drink area, and entertainment. Need to be on time to get full effect. We arrived after sundown and don't think it was as awe insprinig as it could be. Also felt it was a little over priced for the attraction.

Beautiful set up and nice night out. Live music, food trucks, tables with firepits make for nice hangout area before or after seeing the lights. I do recommend arriving around sunset, watching lovely sunset colors. Then how the lights get more and more visible is enchanting. Lots of built in benches along the route. Trail is wide and well graded/packed down. I forked out for VIP fix, enjoyed terrace seating with beverage, no lines for well kept bathrooms. Nice night out.
