Light Park is located in the parking lot of Hurricane Harbor Splashtown at 1305 Spring Cypress Road. The timing of the experience depends on the traffic flow, but according to the company, ought to last between 20 and 30 minutes. Tickets are on sale now for $35 per vehicle. Buyers can receive a discount when purchasing online.


The light spectacle is open every night of the week between 5:30 pm and 10 pm until December 31.
