Snow Magic invited their guests to open their imagination and discover a dreamy world taking them on a thematic journey like no other, as they discover a wonder world of fire, ice and fantastical sights. This best-in-class production features eighteen expertly curated and vibrant art installations, created by some of Canada’s most acclaimed artists, who have been featured at notable events such as Burning Man and Nuit Blanche. This multidisciplinary collection of artists have not shown together in this way before!
This delightful winter wonderland was brimming with larger-than-life mythical creatures, crystal caverns, and a forest of light that only dreams are made of. Guests were invited to tune into an FM station to feel the pulse of an awe-inspiring soundscape created by composer Miff Zawadzki, that moved them through a 30 minute journey of light and enchanting beauty. In addition, there was an interactive, contactless deep dive game experience, illuminated art projections, state of the art pyrotechnics, and light tunnels across 1.7 kilometres of awe inspiring, instagram worthy terrain.
