Blackpool’s newest attraction opened this year (2014) is the spectacular Illuminasia, an indoor illuminations light show to delight the whole family.
Housed in Blackpool’s historic Winter Gardens in the centre of town, the display takes the visitor through six zones and spectacular views from the gallery.
The first zone is the Mysteries of China.
See the beauty and tradition of Chinese lantern making as an army of terracotta warriors guard the Jade Palace. If you are lucky the Emperor himself will grant you an audience, but first discover your birth sign from the Chinese Zodiac displays and remember to bow before you leave!
