The sculptures are all hand made from wood into people, animals, etc. Wonderful backdrop for photoshoot. Best to do in the morning when less crowded.

We were very happy to find this fabulous attraction - it is fantastic how they have made these sculptures out of wood - the lighting and the music make the mood special for the Christmas season - great for children and adults alike.
