By design, Lights of Tejas can accommodate guests’ needs to a certain extent. While we strive to welcome all guests the best we can, please note that our facilities have terrain that cannot be crossed by all. For example, our pathways do not easily accommodate wheelchairs, walkers, and some strollers.
