Last week we had a sneak preview of Blackpool’s newest attraction, Illuminasia … & it’s going to be FANTASTIC! Over £3 million pounds will see Olympia in the Winter Gardens transformed into an indoor, all-weather Illuminations. There are 6 themed rooms ranging from the Land of the Giants where you will walk through a super-sized world (making you feel like the size of an ant), The Mysteries of China, to World Wonders & a Planetarium. Exhibits are made of silk (like Chinese lanterns) & illuminated with LED lights. There will be live entertainment & every hour the large hall will be plunged into darkness & there will be an Illuminations switch on complete with lasers.
There is a lot of work to do but Illuminasia will open on Good Friday. Here are my snaps of the (almost finished) Blackpool Tower, Statue of Liberty, Leaning Tower of Pisa & Tower Bridge, along with a giant dragonfly, ant & spider (maybe from the Land of the Giants)!class=”alignnone size-thumbnail wp-image-1084″ />
