Get ready to soak up those festive vibes through dazzling light displays, a real-life gingerbread house, carnival games and rides, live performances, festive food and drinks, and much more.

We highlight eight magical Christmas Wonderland sights and experiences that are guaranteed to dazzle and delight every member of the family.

Spalliera

Standing majestically at 20 metres tall, the stunning Spalliera is intricately handmade by Italian craftsmen. Lit by 103,000 bubs, the light installation features a design inspired by Mesola Castle in north Italy’s province of Ferrara.

Fun fact: One of the properties of an ancient and noble Italian family, Mesola Castle is unique for its four towers that are positioned at 45 degrees to the main building, giving the castle a distinct architectural shape. This feature is replicated in the design of the Spalliera.

Garden Rhapsody Light & Sound Show

Soak up the festive cheer amidst the Supertrees through music and magical lights that glint and glimmer in time to beloved Christmas tunes. Shows are held at 7.45pm, 8.45pm and 9.35pm daily.
