Christmas Wonderland 2020 Reinvents The Festive Experience with An Immersive Virtual World

Christmas Wonderland organisers Blue Sky Events is out to deck your screens with good tidings, presented in a whole new way to experience the season with the debut of Virtual Christmas Wonderland 2020. For the first time the biggest year-end festive event in Singapore welcomes guests of all ages from the comfort of their homes to discover a virtual magical world unlike any other. Via a Windows desktop app, visitors can enjoy the full experience of Virtual Christmas Wonderland or access selected functions via the Members Only region at

“This year has been an extremely difficult year for everyone. As organisers of Christmas Wonderland, we felt that it was even more important to continue to celebrate Christmas. We’ve come up with a unique solution which moved the vast variety of the traditional Christmas Wonderland content online, whilst keeping some physical lights at Gardens by the Bay. Fans of Christmas Wonderland now have the bestmof both worlds, as they can choose to either visit us on site, or experience the magic of wonderland at home. To allow maximum choice, both are ticketed separately,” said Mr. Kevin Soh, Executive Director, Blue Sky Events Pte Ltd.“

Given the current safety measures for Covid-19, a much smaller number of our normal visitors will be able to enjoy the lights at the Gardens. This was the main driver for us to develop a Windows desktop app to enable as many people as possible to continue to enjoy Christmas Wonderland,” said Mr. Soh.

Explore an immersive world of wonder and enchantment featuring hyper-realistic graphics and highly interactive content via the website and desktop app.

Step into a virtual winter landscape, have a video call with the man himself at Santa’s Workshop, challenge your friends to a snowball fight at the Snow Playground, try your hand at the game booths at the Jolly Carnival, enjoy festive entertainment at the Tinsel Theatre presented by Lifetime, admire the stunning lights at the Supertree Grove, shop for unique gifts at the Bells Market or send personalised e-cards to friends and family.
