The yearly Christmas Wonderland at Gardens By The Bay is back from Dec 1, 2023 to Jan 1, 2024. And this 10th edition is set to be more dazzling with a supersized fairground, more light displays and carnival rides.
Presented by Trip.com, Christmas Wonderland spans more than 27,000 square metres with three zones: Supertree Grove, Frosty’s Fairground at The Meadow, and Gingerbread Grove.
Visitors can admire 13 stunning light displays, soak in the holiday cheer with a multi-sensory experience complete with “snow” in the tropics, hop onto new carnival rides, have a go at carnival games, meet Santa Claus, dine on festive fare, catch live performances by local artistes and lots more.
Taking centre stage at the heart of Supertree Grove is Christmas Wonderland’s main showpiece, the Spalliera. With a design inspired by Mesola Castle in north Italy’s province of Ferrara, this magnificent handcrafted light display is lit by 103,000 bulbs and stands majestically at 20 metres tall – roughly the height of five double-decker buses.
Stroll into the Walk of Lights, presented by CDG Zig. This year’s installation is the longest ever at 65 metres. Be mesmerised by the myriad of colours from its programmable LED lights and be sure to have your camera ready for those Insta-worthy shots.
Also docked at the Yuletide fair is the new Holly Roger ship with its crew of merry pirate elves. Illuminated by approximately 127,000 bulbs, this 24-metre-long whimsical light display is a sight to behold.
At Frosty’s Fairground at The Meadow, visitors can have a go at carnival games such as Ring Toss, Fishy Fishy, and Blockbuster. Take a trip down memory lane and hop onto classic amusement rides by Uncle Ringo such as Bumper Cars, Carousel, Flying Dumbo and Hot Air Balloon. More fun awaits at LumiLand, an illuminated playground where there are enchantingly lit seesaws, swings, and LED fixtures for the little ones to enjoy.
Situated between Supertree Grove and Frosty’s Fairground is the newly created Gingerbread Grove. This is a quirky sugary-themed zone that’s a feast for the eyes with a vibrantly lit Gingerbread House set on a field of illuminated candy canes.
There will be twice the number of food outlets this year, so visitors will be spoilt for choice with more treats than ever before. Festive fare include Burger & Lobster, Kebabs Faktory, and Sofnade. Get into the Christmas spirit with performances by local artistes and do Christmas shopping at Mistletoe Alley.
