Illuminasia is the biggest indoor illuminations experience in the world and has got to be seen to be believed! Be sure to take a camera because this is epic photo territory! The World Of Wonders section features he Leaning Tower of Pisa, Statue of Liberty, Sphinx, Great Wall of China, Easter Island, Tower Bridge, and of course, the Blackpool Tower!
Kids will adore the Land Of The Giants exhibit where flowers and grass stalks tower over you, bonkers big bugs fly by and you can look up at the biggest puppy you're ever going to see! The Deep is an underwater adventure which starts by strolling through the mouth of a shark! See jellies, fishies and all things anemone; a soothing and dreamlike experience - quite different to The Dark Zone, which is more like one of those other nighttime occurrences! Though far from terrifying braver kids will certainly get a thrill from it, with things like giant leering Jack O Lantern and creepy spiders!
In the Mysteries of China area you can see the Terracotta Warriors as they guard the Jade Palace and discover your birth sign in the Chinese Zodiac plus get an audience with the Emperor himself! The awesome Planetarium room recreates our Solar System for your perusal and combines it with fascinating space facts and info. And now with their new 3D Zone you can watch the stunning light effects come to life and leap out at you! Plus you can head out to the Tower Bridge to see the GloBot Laser Show, which is put to specially composed music just for Illuminasia. Brilliant!
Plus there's a kids' quiz that you get a certificate for completing: hooray! The hand stamp allows you to come and go all day if you please, too.
