Christmas Wonderland returns at Gardens by the Bay and promises to be bigger, brighter and cooler.
Christmas is a time of joy and laughter as family and friends gather to celebrate this festive season. And what better way to get into the festive spirit than at Singapore’s biggest yuletide fair, Christmas Wonderland which opens from 28 November 2015 at Gardens by the Bay.
After it’s inaugural success last year, Christmas Wonderland returns with some of the crowd favourites like the spellbinding Luminaries, a splendid kaleidoscopic display of colourful lights sculptures, handmade by Italian craftsmen. The Spalliera that will be nestled among the Supertrees Grove will feature the tallest sculpture of lights, towering over 20m. I’m sure it will be a magnificent and grand sight to behold when it illuminates in the evening.
And of course, here’s also the closest you’ll get to a white Christmas where visitors can experience snow during Blizzard Time that happens 3 times a night.
This year, there will also be new attractions, activities and lots more to see and do on a larger scale for the whole family from the young and old to take part in. I’m so looking forward to ice skate and make snow angels with Sophie at the brand new attraction, Ice Palace where there’ll be an ice skating rink and Snow Playground. I’ve seen these in London when I was there 2 years ago and regretted that I didn’t go for it.
This time, I will be sure to put on my ice skates and I’m pretty sure I’m going to see some kids building Olaf too 🙂
At the Fairground, another new festive feature, visitors can go on traditional carnival ride like the vintage style carousel that’s specially brought in from Europe. They can also try their hand at game stalls and win attractive prizes.
There’ll also be an AIA Trick Art where you get your imagination run wild as you pose for your photo and create special memories with the original 3D optical mirror-illusion with your loved ones at the event.
I think it’s going to be great as a personalised Christmas e-greetings for this festive season too!
What’s more, AIA gives you MORE reasons for having real moments of joy with your family this Christmas. Simply share your photos on Instagram with the hashtags #AIARealLife, #RealMomentsofJoy and #ChristmasWonderlandSG to stand a chance to win the a 3D2N Family Staycation at the Festive Hotel @Resorts World Sentosa and many more!
Another highlight not to be missed is the Helter Skelter, the tallest slide in Singapore at a height of 14m! Not for the faint hearted for sure!
And for those who have have in mind to come and feast and be merry, you’ll be glad to know that the Festive Market returns with more indulgences. Visitors will enjoy a greater selection of international cuisine and wines.
To add to the festive experience, the Spiegeltent, an ornate century-old travelling ‘mirror tent’, will also return for a one-of-a-kid dining experience with a specially curated festive menu. as well as a weekend brunch.
There’ll be lots of entertainment and roving acts going on as well from choirs, to parades, story telling and much much more!
And of course, to usher in the Christmas spirit, the Flower Dome will be transformed into a Christmas Toyland Floral Display where toys reign supreme amidst yuletide floral. The centerpiece of Christmas Toyland will be an 11-meter tall Christmas pyramid decked with toys that will transform into a live stage hosting a series of festive performances for the very first time in the Flower Field.
With something for everyone in the family, Christmas Wonderland is going to be a magical place where I’ll be taking my family this Christmas as we unwind for the year and indulge in the festivities. And the best part is, admission to Christmas Wonderland is free with the exception of rides at the Fairground, Ice Palace and inside the Flower Dome.
