3 months ago
Gulliver’s World has been delighting families of all ages for decades – but this winter, there’s a fabulous first for the Warrington theme park that’ll help everyone see it in a whole new light!
From now until the end of February 2024, it’s hosting Land of Lights, a massive cultural and artistic lantern festival.
Guests can visit 12 amazing dreamworlds featuring gigantic lanterns inspired by animals, mega monuments, and wonders of the natural world.
So if you thought you’d ‘been there, seen it, and done it’ at Gulliver’s World – or that your little people, or even you, were too old for the popular Cheshire venue – think again, because this is something that will amaze and delight everyone.
“We’re so excited to have Land of Lights here in Warrington. The festival proved to be enormously popular in Milton Keynes – where it was launched for the first time last year – and we’re confident it’ll wow audiences here too,” says Ross Partridge, Lands of Lights festival manager. “It’s definitely off to a great start.”
He adds: “It’s a spectacular, illuminated attraction that provides people from the local area with a great night out, as well as attracting visitors from far and wide to Warrington to experience the breathtaking moments and awe-inspiring installations bursting with energy and culture.
“Alongside our usual must-visit Christmas events and activities, it’s a winter to remember here at Gulliver’s World.”
The incredible lantern festival includes more than 7,000 individual lanterns handcrafted by skilled artisans from the award-winning Zigong Lantern Group which take six months to design and make, and hundreds of thousands of LED lights which will cast a gorgeous glow and create a new magical world around the theme park.
The Jurassic Zone even features roarsome ‘living’ dinosaurs.
“The dreamworlds include an underwater themed area with sea creatures bought to life in a magical display,” says David Farnan, brand marketing manager.
“Leading into the Christmas section is our gigantic polar express train and there are various walkways of dazzling lights throughout the trail.
It’s all come together really well and it’s a wonderful, immersive experience that helps us to bring a whole new set of people to Gulliver’s World and appeal to a wider audience.”
