Spanning over 27,000 square meters, Christmas Wonderland 2023 will dazzle and delight with illuminated displays, carnival rides, festive activities, live music, and holiday cheer that the whole family can enjoy. There’s no better way to celebrate the season and get into the Christmas spirit in Singapore than this time-honoured tradition.

Majestic Spalleria Centrepiece

The iconic centrepiece of Christmas Wonderland is the stunning 20-meter tall Spalleria crown, lit by over 100,000 bulbs and inspired by Italy’s regal Mesola Castle. Located in Supertree Grove, this handcrafted masterpiece never fails to impress both first-timers and returning visitors. Spalleria is carefully reassembled each year and represents Christmas Wonderland’s grandest display.

As Christmas tunes fill the air, this mesmerizing ‘snow’ display is a holiday treat you have to see in person. Daily shows will take place at 7.45pm, 8.45pm, 9.35pm.
