Christmas Festival of Lights
Where to go for the best Christmas lights this season? Adventure Park of course. The very jolly crew at Adventure Park have strung, strewn and scattered 1.2 million lights to create an illuminating display of epic proportions. The kids faces will glow (quite literally) as they take in the bright lights of the enchanted fairy garden, Cinderalla’s carriage, Santa’s Christmas cave, dazzling bridges, glistening paths and so much more. There’s also a photo op with Santa himself, along with the thrills of Adventure Park’s amazing action rides, all under lights of course!
