ILLUMINASIA is unlike anything you've seen before! A magical walk-through attraction that blends the tradition of Chinese lantern craft with modern technology to create incredible larger-than-life exhibits. Visitors will explore seven zones ... The Mysteries Of China, 3D Experience, The Dark Zone, Land Of The Giants, The Deep with its interactive floor projector containing 10 different games that change every 10 minutes, The Planets Zone and Cafe & Gift Shop, and Wonders Of The World with laser light show finale. ILLUMINASIA is immersive and interactive, perfect for families and captivating for all ages. We ask for a £1.00 returnable deposit for 3D glasses. Why not make a day of it as there is no time limit. Our Planets Cafe serves Tea, Coffee, Hot chocolate and soft drinks for just £1.00, A selection of cakes from 50p and sandwiches and Hot snacks from £1.50. We are wheelchair and pushchair friendly, The 1st floor can be accessed via a ramp and the lower floor can be accessed Via a lift.
