Winter Wonderlight

Thornton Manor’s Winter WonderLight

The enchanting forest, lake and light spectacular.

Nine fantastic themed zones. One spectacular light experience.

RUNS FROM DEC 4TH 2020 – JAN 3RD 2021

Prepare to experience the laser and light event of the year from the comfort of your car. Thornton Manor’s Winter WonderLight is a major new drive-through light and laser experience starting on Monday December 4th. Our dashboard audio box will provide the soundtrack whilst you enjoy spectacular displays in nine light themed zones.

Completely contactless and Covid safe, our stunning in-car sound experience will enhance your tour as you drive from zone to spectacular zone, ranging from our spellbinding lakeside Northern Lights show to the wonders of our enchanting LED meadow show. Book now to reserve your place in our magical illuminated wonderland.

Here are just some of the highlights you can look forward to in our laser and light experience:

The Cathedral of Light

After you’ve checked in and had your ticket safely scanned through your window at East Lodge your experience will commence with a drive through a warm white cathedral-shaped light tunnel to the sound of ‘Christmas Angels’.

Illuminated Wildlife Wonderland

You’ll then follow the trail to an awaiting, S-shaped wonderland with magically illuminated animals in different colours.

Forest of Lasers

You’ll then proceed further into the wonderland, where dazzling lasers will pierce the darkness as through the trees.

LED Movie Meadow Show

Moving on, you’ll come to a field of light, with thousands of illuminated balls lined with Christmas trees, all synchronised to a stunning soundtrack, featuring popular soundtrack songs from movies Love Actually and The Holiday.

Woods of Wonder

Your journey will continue with an exciting exploration, as you venture through a maze of Christmas trees festooned and illuminated with bright festive lights.

Singing Trees

Driving on to the forest, you’ll then stop for another show, with LED tree trunks synced in time to a dramatic soundtrack, creating a ‘singing effect’ to their own forest rhythm.

Northern Lights over the Lake

As you proceed to the waterside, you’ll come to a stop for the first of our shows, the spectacular Northern Lights projected through a water screen set to music. The 3D/holographic nature of the show will bring the dancing lights close to your car making them feel close enough to touch.

The Vortex Tunnel

From there, you’ll drive on to our spectacular, dreamlike Vortex Tunnel, with futuristic illuminated effects creating a seemingly never ending tunnel of light.

Spectacular Snowscape

As you drive out of the estate, you’ll will go through a simulated, snow covered, winter wonderland with magical giant illuminated snowflakes.
