How long is the Dasher’s Lightshow?

This year, Dasher’s Lightshow features a new show and a longer route at the Sam Houston Race Park location. This means more Christmas lights and more attractions to see. The length of the ride depends on how fast you go and how many cars are in attendance. But it’s recommended you drive at an idle speed of 1 mph to enjoy all the sights. Going at this pace will take you 20 minutes to finish the route. The same recommendations apply to the Big Rivers location.

What Kinds of Vehicles Are Allowed in the Dasher’s Lightshow?

Normal passenger vehicles are allowed into the show. This includes cars, vans, and trucks. There will be no buses, trailers, limousines, oversized vans, or other larger vehicles allowed. 

Can You Get Out Of Your Vehicle?

If you need to use the restroom, you may get down while waiting in the queue. However, once you’ve entered the drive-thru show, no one is allowed to exit their vehicle.
