Things are about to get wild at West Midland Safari Park this winter. Well, wilder than usual. As the park sees the return of last year’s inaugural event, offering an “an after-dark illuminations experience like no other.”
Lantern Festival will be kicking off the park’s winter season with an epic lantern trail, where guests can enjoy mesmerising lighting displays, discover a ‘wild’ range of breath-taking lanterns and explore the walk-through areas of the park like never before.
Taking place over eight weeks, the immersive light installations will transform the Worcestershire park, transporting guests to a wonderland of lanterns and interactive lighting displays. With over forty light groupings, and up to 1000 individual lanterns, the event will have something for all ages.
The 3km trail will feature magical lit-up landscapes, dinosaur lanterns, glowing animal installations, a giant interactive piano keyboard, rainbow tunnel and many other creations. The outdoor evening event will be open to the public from 5pm until 8:30pm every Friday to Sunday, from November 11 to January 8.
West Midland Safari Park is also home to The Safari Drive-through, as well as exciting Adventure Theme Park rides too. However, if you are planning to enjoy either of these make sure to head down long before the Lantern Festival. The park will close both of these during the evening event. You will, however, be able to experience a wide range of food, beverage and retail outlets throughout the night. Tickets to the Lantern Festival can now be booked in advance via the park’s website here.
The standard admission charge to see the trail of lights starts at £19.00 for adults and children. Seniors (65+ years) can grab a ticket for £17.00, while children under the age of three are free of charge.
