Jurassic Drive Thru at Bull Run Park
May 2021
Bull run regional park is a great park - this review is specific to the Jurassic drive-thru. It was not set up in the park but instead set up where the carnival is usually set up for the Festival of Lights.

We live close by and always go to the Festival of the lights. We thought (wrongly) that the Dino display would be similar - but instead of being in the park where the lights are set up - this was set up like a parking lot. We also thought "wrongly again" that the dino surprises x3 (15$ EXTRA on top of the $50+tax tickets) would be similar to the "actors" that we experienced in the Halloween drive-thru we did at Lorton which was about the same price.

We also went to Jurassic Quest (indoor) a couple of years ago at the Dulles expo center - which was good. More dinosaurs that looked to be to scale.

If you have a kiddo who is dinosaur crazy - they might like this but in my opinion, it was hugely overpriced and a big disappointment. The only reason I gave it two stars is because those staffing the event were very nice and welcoming.
I added a picture below of the EXTRA 15$ dino surprises)

Bull Run Festival of Lights—There Are Better Options
Dec. 2020 • Couples
The Bull Run Festival of Lights has a beautiful and enchanting section, Winter Wonderland, with thousands of animated lights suspended from trees. Other than that, the overall 15 minute drive through light show is a pleasant holiday diversion. Both family-friendly and good for couples. However, it is pricey compared to the much more extensive Festival of Lights at Watkins Regional Park in Upper Marlboro ($30 vs. $8 per car). We did both this year and recommend the Watkins Park festival as a bigger, better show and a superior value.

Festival of lights
Dec. 2019 • Family
Every year during the holidays the park hosts amazing drive though amid beautiful lights depicting fairyland characters and landscape, including the Wizard of Oz, Santa’s workshop and what not. Its a great treat for kids and parents alike. Driving the loop at 10-20 mph, it takes about 30-40 min to complete the amazing experience.

Each year the number of lights seems to increase!
Dec. 2019
This was our 10th annual visit to the Light Show and this was the best ever. We (my wife, daugher and her four year old started the tradition and now we have three more grands who enjoy the show!) Always try to hit mid week ( can't imagine the traffic on a weekend!) and we hit it great last evening - no car behind us the entire trip.

The variety of displays is enjoyed by all. Their are so many displays that we look forward to and fun to see something new. They are set up to handle traffic and move folks through. You can always get behind someone who ignores the signs and common decency and stops more than they should.

We look forward to this every year and will be back in 2020.

Always a memorable visit
Dec. 2018
We have a tradition to visit the Festival of Lights at Bull Run. You drive through thousands of lights in all kinds of shapes and characters. The line gets long at peak times so schedule a visit at off peak. You can even ride a camel.

Great Local Park
May 2019 • Solo
We visit the park several times a year. We camp here. We visit in the winter to see the Xmas lights. We come here in the summer to go to the Atlantis Waterpark. The kids love it.

People very nice. Has a dump station open to the public even if not camping. Pretty quiet and close to Manassas Battlefield. Hook-ups are power and water only. No sewer hook-ups.

Thanks for your review, Gary! To clarify, we actually do have a number of full hook up sites with sewer- they may have just been booked during your stay. We hope to see you again!
