Young families will love the atmospheric FUNtARTstic Storyland: Light-Up Edition, where a magical and enchanted forest of clouds, trees and giant mushrooms glow in a starry night. Here, children can create their own stories with a local flavour in a variety of performing and literary arts activities, such as mass storytelling and music jamming. For older residents (who are still children at heart), the “forest” is an inviting lounge area and also perfect for Instagram-worthy shots.
