just some of the highlights you can look forward to in our laser & 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 through the trees.

  • L.E.D. 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, where the spectacular Northern Lights will be 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 go through a simulated, snow covered, winter wonderland with magical giant illuminated snowflakes.
