1. Festive Light Displays at Christmas Wonderland

Look out for eight magical light displays at Christmas Wonderland!

  • Standing at seven-storeys high, the magnificent Spalliera is handmade in Italy and takes its inspiration from the circular rose windows found in Europe’s Gothic churches.

  • The Walk of Stars spans 44 metres of festive lights. Wander through this spectacular light tunnel made up of thousands of programmable star-shaped LED lights. We reckon this is going to be an IG-hit!
