    Definitely Recommended while in Paso
    It was quite a lovely experience - the lights which change very slowly so that it's barely perceptible made for a fun evening of photography. It's a little expensive and the $43 general admission is all that's needed to get the full experience. The night that we went to this event, it was a bit crowded although there was plenty of room to sit and also to sit at a table and have dinner (inside or out).

    Absolutely Beautiful
    Beautiful and pictures do not do it justice. We took a family road trip through California and this was one of our stops. Paso Robles was a very cute little town and from our hotel it wasn't far to drive to Sensorio. It was a little cooler so we bundled up and walked around on the pathway. I was glad I didn't spend the VIP ticket price since walking around was far more enjoyable. The lights were beautiful and it took us a few tries to get the lighting/setting down on our phones (no flash). If it wouldn't have been so cold I could have stayed longer since the lights were beautiful. It's definitely a must stop - our family consisted of people older than 18 and everyone truly enjoyed it.

    A must in Paso Robles!
    It was a wonderful and fun experience. I came here w/ 2 guy friends and we noticed there were many couples and how this may not be suitable for 3 guys! Simply beautiful and amazing! You are in awe at how beautiful it looks and wonder how they were able to put it together- so artistic and creative. Tip to keep in mind is to buy tickets in advance and pay more so your are able to sit by the fire pits and tables to relax and wait for sun to go down. It's worth the extra money to not have to worry about where to sit. Also you get to use the more clean less people going bathrooms! Food truck food was great so we didn't have to get food before or after coming here! I would definitely come back!

    Beautiful &Scenic
    We went on a Thursday and bought the Terrace Plus Platter experience. The terrace is lovely, lots of seating on a Thursday and more of a relaxing &scenic experience compared to the musical experience in the regular waiting/food truck area where there is no view of light field until you walk out into the field. I would recommend not upgrading to “Plus Platter” on the terrace ticket. You get a free drink (the wine poor was literally half the purchased glass pour) plus a charcuterie platter. It was not the best platter-pale underdone French bread, several salami type meats, nuts, olives, pickles- No mustard or normal charcuterie condiments. Plus they handed each of platters to us in a separate plastic bag- let’s save some plastic Sensorio!! Better to get your seat in the terrace and go back out to the food truck or barn food counter and get your own food choices early. They even sell the charcuterie plastic platter out there if you must. The gas log features scattered about the terrace are really bright once they get turned on and detract from the view. But nice and warm later in evening if you go back in to terrace after walking and want to chat. Overall a nice experience if you’ve never done it.

    Beautiful way to enjoy an evening with friends or family.
    Beautiful peaceful evening enjoying the Sensorio exhibit and California landscape with our friends. We arrived at sunset and enjoyed a glass of wine in the welcome area, then took a stroll through the exhibit, before eating dinner from the food trucks at one of the picnic tables. Food and wine was good and decently priced compared to other exhibits.

    Beautiful!
    What a beautiful, immersive experience. I'm not sure how many acres this covers, but it is many. The only reason I took away a star is because it is not very handicap accessible. The dirt is packed, but lots of turns. They do advertise it as being ADA compliant. Apparently, this experience will be every changing throughout the year. We will be back next year to see what the new lights will be. Easily spent 3 hours here, between the lights, food trucks, drinks, and fire tables.

    Its worth visiting once
    General ticket is sufficient. My daughter wanted to visit this place for a while, so booked the tickets before sold out. Google map was showing the place is closed and will open after few days, I do not trust google and didn't get any message from them that it was closed so went anyways and it was open. Luckily not raining but the night was very cold. So we spent around 1 hour and took some beautiful pictures.

    Beautiful Light Experience For All!
    Perfect venue and experience for the entire family. We took my teenage niece and my elderly in-laws with us. Everyone had a wonderful time. My father-in-law struggles to walk but we were able to use one of the complimentary wheelchairs available.

    A unique and beautiful experience
    This was a gorgeous art installation. Take it slowly and walk round the paths several times to fully appreciate the view from so many different angles. On a practical level, there is a car park, clean restrooms, food and drink available from more than one venue. We heard some lovely live music and watched the music in the provided chairs by the fire pits. An overall lovely night that we will always remember.

We waited for 90 minutes wondering when the show would start. Nope… lights turn on, we get VIP meals in a plastic box from Costco and options for basic wine. $240.00 for VIP is NOT worth it. Save your money and go walk around to see it

The lights would have been better viewed under the effects of hallucinations. The “show” is not dynamic, and could have benefited with the addition of some background music. If this place was a winery, it would be on par with Lone Madrone.

Absolutely stunning! Loved the experience! A definite "must see"!!! As you gaze over the lights they so subtly change colors. As you walk around the corner to the towers, wonderful music fills thee air- which you couldn't hear while in the other environment! Super Cool!

Really beautiful and so worth it. Loved how all kinds of age groups seemed to enjoy the experience -- from little kids to grandparents. We deliberated endlessly whether to go with basic admission or the expensive terrace-and-cheese-plate option (the less expensive terrace option being "sold out" online). We ended up opting for the lowest priced tickets and were happy that we did. Worked out great. We ate there and liked the food. I get cold so I really bundled up and felt comfortable the whole time.

It is beautiful. It can be a very relaxing walk depending on how slow you want to take it. If you decide to go, allow a minimum of an hour. An hour and a half if you take your time, and more if you choose to enjoy the music, fire pits, wine and dinner. I enjoyed the Light Towers. Wish they would make this a quiete zone. I’m giving it 2 stars because it’s WAY overpriced! Definitely not worth $43 per person. Personally would not recommend based on price.
