Anyone been....Is it worth the drive thru? And is there time for pictures to be taken without getting rushed from cars behind?

Several Reviews say it is not worth it.

This is a Google Review from a few days ago:

I take my review very seriously and sorry to say I was extremely disappointed. Light show is very poor quality and waste of time. Only the fire dragon was worth seeing.

The price per car including service charges is around $81 (although advertised as $65). For such a sum of money, I would expect quality work. Seriously, one the exhibits is a cartoon character of a wolfcub running in big screen. I do understand you want to support local artists and art is subjective but this is preposterous!

Not worth the money in my opinion! Only positive takeaway is the at least some money will go to Sickkids!

This is a reminder of what a sad state Ontario / Toronto is in. No where else in the world will this exist, much less as a PAID event!

Drive through light exhibit!!! Imagine this! I am embarrassed to say I've been through one, and there was a 30 min wait on the road to enter this thing. People were desperate. People should now be angry that Ontario just shut down, and events like this is needed to entertain the inmates.

Ottawa has one as well to raise money for CHEO.

Another thing clearly designed for the generation that seeks out things to post on social media first and have actual experiences second. Would not be one bit surprised if you see most cars full of people staring at their phones hanging out all the windows.

It's decent at $45 tax included. Definitely pack your car if you can. The music is a nice touch. Definitely not worth over $50. I did get some nice photos with the CN Tower in the background.

We’re literally posting on social media right now.

BTW, this event is “meh” as mentioned before

Thanks OP.. Worth it or not, it sure beats sitting at home all day during the lockdown! I couldn't find any field for promo/coupon code on the checkout page though..

EDIT: Found it here: https://www.ticketfairy.com/event/drive ... -snowmagic
The promo code entry is actually before the checkout page

Comes to $48.27 all in for off-peak time

Terrible. We got the free tickets and it was still a worthless trek to downtown to watch this.
There were houses in our area which were better decorated than this.
The only good installation was a dragon that breathed fire. Rest all were crappy.

Also got free tickets and was also still disappointed! The displays seemed sparse (there's one then you drive a little bit with nothing around to see the next) and not impressive at all. The installations made little sense and seemed hastily put together. Far from an immersive experience. Think driving down a street with some random displays put up by various families. Even at a discount (or free in my case), this is a ripoff.

We were disappointed in the experience and it’s definitely not worth the $45-$65 price tag (off-peak/on peak pricing)

From impatient drivers behind you honking their horn as you spend the 5 minutes taking pictures, or from the lack of winter ambiance (i.e. weather not cooperating with snow), we found it underwhelming.

Save your money.

My family enjoyed it (kids 7 and 11). It was also nice being downtown during the holidays after a long while. They do have employees hold cars so people don’t feel rushed. I thought the pace was excellent. We went during non peak hours at a reduced rate before Christmas.

Does anyone know if this event is walkable? Or are we confined to cars that must follow a specific path at a specific speed with timed stops (like on a conveyor belt)?

I've been to several lantern festivals @ Ontario Place where colourful lanterns are placed throughout the park. We had a great time walking around the beautiful park taking in the lakeside scenery and taking pictures of lanterns. We had to pay entrance fee to Ontario Place but the lantern festival itself was free. The entrance fee was well worth it as you can spend the entire day (10AM - 10pm) at the park.

This winter hasn't been that cold. So if this Snow Magic show is anything like the lantern festival I would go.
