Adventure Park Geelong’s Christmas Festival of Lights returning this December

Victoria’s largest Christmas Lights event, the Christmas Festival of Lights, is returning to Adventure Park on Saturday 27th November 2021 with new light installations, an extended walking trail, two new rides and a range of child-oriented activities for the festive season.

Adventure Park’s Christmas celebration will run for 43 days, featuring an additional 700,000 lights over a two kilometre walking trail that will illuminate the attraction for a third year in a row.

Adventure Park Managing Director, Bree Salmon commented “we thought last year was big, but the 2021 event is even bigger with 2.7 million lights and some really jaw-dropping feature installations.

“We have new light displays going all the way around the 16 acre lake and we’ve completely transformed our huge undercover pavilion with a lunar lanterns exhibit, filled with zodiac themed animal installations and lanterns.”

New light installations include a Lunar Lantern Exhibit complete with majestic 20m dragon, lanterns and animals from the zodiac; a Fantasyland with a 12m smoke breathing dragon, a 8m caterpillar and butterflies; a 25m Psychedelic Tunnel; Loch Ness Monster and enormous ‘Angels from heaven’.

These add to an already spectacular lights display full of animals, giant toys, enchanted gardens, fairy-tale scenes, winter wonderlands and the popular shimmering sparkle archway.

Salmon added “the immersive and three-dimensional installations have been so popular so we’ve added loads more of these where you can get inside and underneath for the perfect family photo.”

Eight dry rides will be open including two new rides; the popular classic spinning Tea Cups ride and a unique Air Balloons ride which sees riders soar 20m into the sky for an epic view of the park before floating back down to earth.

Salmon went on to say “we’re very excited to be running such a wonderful event now that Victorian’s are able to get out and about again.”

As per Victorian Government COVID requirements, proof of double vaccination for those 16+ years is required for entry to Adventure Park.
