Your 2021 Journey

 

This year's Winter Lights adventure takes you across the resort. Start the fun in Bluestone's ancient woodland, where we've got a new interactive experience to brighten the winter days and nights.  

 

 

 

Stop One: The Wonder Wood

Complimentary Activity

 

*     *    There is always light in the darkness if you really look for it    *    *  

 

As the sun sets, the magic begins to stir in Bluestone’s ancient woodland, as the enchanted light returns to the forest. This year’s enchanted trail tells the story of Mr. Wonder and the Wonder Wood. Mr. Wonder isn’t very good at being a wizard! He has spent many hours practicing spells in Bluestone’s ancient woodland, and all his antics have caused some rather unusual things to happen. 

Wander through the wonder of the enchanted trail, where you'll embark on a journey filled with magic and mischief. Explore the weird and wonderful, marvel at the incredible light creations, and enjoy all the oddities and enchanting accidents. Mr. Wonder has brought to life, not just the trees, but also those who live in the wood too, including the magical fairies. If you really believe – you may even stumble across the Fairy Village, only visible when the magic is at its strongest.

The pathway is brightest after sunset, where the glow will light your path, and you can really appreciate the spellbinding sight of the Wonder Wood. 

 

 

 

 

Stop Two: The Light Garden

 Complimentary Activity

 

This Winter Lights season, the Bluestone Village will be transformed into The Light Garden home of the enchanting Light Keeper. You’ll find the magical man in the centre of the village, but don’t expect him to be very talkative.

The Light Keeper is Mr. Wonder’s oldest friend and even gifted him with his very first wand. But, Mr. Wonder was not very careful with his very powerful present, and with his very first spell accidentally turned the Light Keeper into a statue. Thankfully, he awakens throughout the day, just long enough to dazzle you with an enchanting light show that transforms the village – it’s a sight to behold. Make sure you don't miss it!
