Spalliera: highlight of Christmas Wonderland
A highlight of Christmas Wonderland is the Spalliera – intricately hand-crafted by Italian artisans, the magnificent Spalliera stands at 20 metres tall – the height of five double-decker buses! It takes a crew of seven up to 30 days to set up this crown jewel of Christmas Wonderland, which is made up of 103,000 light bulbs. See the Spalliera in all its splendour at St. Nick’s Square within Christmas Wonderland.
See snow at Christmas Wonderland: Snowland
The Garden Rhapsody light and sound show will take place against the backdrop of the Spalliera. This is a real highlight as the lights on the iconic Supertrees ‘dance’ to favourite Christmas classics, there will also be ‘snowfall’ at Blizzard Time. But do manage expectations – it’s not REAL snow it’s foam — still stunning to experience!
Daily shows (15 minutes light & sound show followed by snowfall): at 7.45pm, 8.45pm, and 9.35pm.
