There are houses in my neighborhood that have better lights than Oglebay. There are no parts of the experience with lights synchronized to music. There aren't really all that many lights considering the acreage of the place. It was not worth the $20 they asked...More

To truly enjoy Oglebay, plan om spending the day there. Many things to see if your interested and spend a few bucks to tour the home and glass museum. Watch the glass blower at work and be sure to ask him questions.

We drove 3 hrs to come see the fantastic lights at oglebay. We were disappointed there wasn't much lights. We came down 10 yrs ago and I think there where more lights then. Very disappointed wouldn't drive that far again to see lights....
