Don’t take our word for it. See our testimonials.

Lightopia is a magical experience for the whole family, and a great deal of work has gone into creating the stunning installations and water show.


This is a great way to spend time with family.

Get wrapped up and take a stroll around the lights! Absolutely brilliant for kids and adults. Beautiful illuminated flowers, tinkerbell, mushrooms and dragons to name a few!
