Illuminasia Blackpool..
« on: June 29, 2014, 10:56:49 PM »
ILLUMINASIA is the culmination of thousands of years of Chinese history and craftsmanship. Each installation has been hand crafted and fitted on site by artisans from Zigong, China.  These lantern experts arrived at the Blackpool Winter Gardens  and created the attraction in just 56 days!

I had the pleasure of visiting this amazing attraction here in the wonderful Blackpool Winter Gardens & Opera House..

If anybody had said to me prior to today that I would be lost for words at seeing something like this I would laugh at them..

Well I was..!!

This is no ordinary illuminated display, this is Illuminasia.. :thumbup:
I describe this as an experience of sensory enlightenment, one that really does make you feel part of the huge display..

Its something that I don't want to spoil  for people, so I wont..

I have a selection of images that will give you a feel of what to expect, but I wont display everything..

You have to visit this attraction yourselves to understand what I mean..

The laser show was a nightmare to photograph I would just like to mention, but amazing to see... :tongue_smilie:


Terracotta Army..


















I learnt today that Blackpool had the first electric light bulb..  :tongue_smilie:





This is the very first Illumination switch, it was last used in the late 1960's...



Down the tunnel to another amazing World of imagination and lights.. :thumbup1:

















I am actually scared of spiders, but these are awesome..and huge..!!  :scared:





















Even has a crashed plane.. :thumbup:









The Sphinx... :thumbup:












Now something that I was quick to notice..How many attractions have you visited, especially in somewhere like Blackpool, and you get to the end of the experience and your children want a souvenir, but sadly they have always been a bit expensive and you don't bother..? 

Well they don't cost the Earth in this attraction.. :thumbup1:

I actually purchased a few items and they are excellent quality as well, some starting from just £1..!! Well done in these tough economic times..Tina was superb to talk to as well.. :thumbup1:

 











Love this place.. :wub: :wub: :wub:



Laser show..Very hard to photograph so please excuse the quality of the images..
Set to music, this lady performs amazing tricks with the laser beams.. :thumbup1:
