Another Jersey Family Fun mom says, “Well lit, even late at night. We went there one hot, summer night around 9:30 pm and guess what? Not only were the lights still on, but it was swarming with kids. Apparently, everyone else had the same idea as us! When we left around 11 pm, the crowd had dwindled but it was still well lit!”
