“The success and feedback from last year’s Christmas Wonderland have greatly influenced our addition of 10 new attractions this year. Our 2019 line-up will bring excitement to all visitors; from the debut of our Christmas Parade and new Santa’s Workshop, to our mix of international festive shows and stunning lights.

On weekdays, Santa will be making his rounds on his reindeer sleigh float looking for those who are naughty or nice.

A magical journey to the North Pole awaits all at the new Santa’s Workshop. Walk through the forest and ‘snow’-filled giant snow globe before witnessing animatronic elves hard at work wrapping presents and fulfilling wishes on their list. Look out for Father Christmas himself as he supervises his elves and grab the chance to take the perfect family picture.




Over 360,000 bulbs will illuminate the fairground in a dazzling display of over 40 majestic luminarie light sculptures in brand new designs, including Asia’s tallest luminarie Christmas tree as well as a stunning 21-metre tall Spalliera as the main feature. Inspired by the iconic towers of the San Gimignano hill town in Tuscany, Italy, the Spalliera’s three towers and connecting roof will dazzle visitors with the splendour of the luminarie light display from a three-dimensional perspective.

In addition to the Italian lights, organisers Blue Sky Events have created two stunning art installations for more spectacular photo opportunities. Made up of more than 60,000 bulbs, the Walk of Peace invites visitors to walk through a 50-metre tunnel-like display for a surreal illuminated experience. Soak up the atmosphere as you stroll through the Mistletoe Alley, which has been enhanced with festive lights and enchanting decorations.
