Discover a fantastical new seasonal adventure at Lightwater Valley this Christmas with the enchanting Alice in Winterland.

Illuminated by the hundreds of magical lantern displays, this Christmas, Lightwater Valley will be home to Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, Humpty Dumpty and many more of those Lewis Carroll's childhood characters we all know and love.

This immersive experience is perfect festive fun for all the family, whatever your age. From a life-size chessboard with an Alice pawn to the iconic Mad Hatter's tea party, there's ways to get involved throughout the experience.

Hundreds of giant illuminated light sculptures will illustrate stories from Alice in Wonderland and Alice through the Looking Glass. Watch the Mad Hatter prepare for his crazy tea party, marvel at a four-metre tall Alice lantern and come face to face with the infamous Queen herself.

Visitors can follow the luminous trail and immerse themselves in a glowing garden with massive mushrooms, illuminated tulips and even a flamingo or two as the evening becomes curiouser and curiouser….

Nearby Ripon is believed to have been a major influence on Lewis Caroll's classic children's story. The author's father was the canon of Ripon Cathedral and carved figures resembling the Mad Hatter and Alice with which Carrol would have been familiar, have been discovered on several of its' choir stalls so Lightwater Valley is a perfect venue to host Alice in Winterland!

The full theme park won't be open however families can enjoy some traditional fairground fun including a spin on the carousel and take to the night sky on the Skyrider. For little ones the Indoor Play Area and Young Fun Rides will be open, to entertain guests of all ages.

Food and drink will be on offer and guests can indulge in a seasonal glass of something tasty whilst enjoying the light experience.

Alice in Winterland will be open from 4pm with last entry at 7pm
Open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 22nd November – 15 December

Open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 20th December to 30th December.
