  • Unique Experience

    This was such a cool experience which I believe any age can enjoy! Kids, family\'s, couples, singles! Each part of the walk just got better & better - constantly catching myself going wowwww! At the end we roasted smores by the fire, perfect way to end the night.

  • Magical Forest Experience

    What a magical forest experience. The lights, the music, the story - it really was amazing. I wasn\'t exactly sure what to expect and I felt like I was entered another world. At times, I felt like I was in Avatar or walking in Lord of the Rings. The trail winds through the forest and across streams and having the lights bounce off the snow added a lovely textural element. Beautifully done and so glad I went.

  • Magical!

    EVERYTHING. This was one of the most magical things we have ever seen/done and we\'ve been to every single Disney park in the world. Do yourself a favor and don\'t watch any videos of it prior to going so you can just be totally surprised! Very safe and suitable for kids of all ages if you have them. Dress warm, take hand warmers and try to go after there has been a good snow! 😍 Also make sure your phones are charged because you\'re going to want to take a ton of pictures and videos. 10/10 recommend.

  • 5 Stars

    Pictures and videos don\'t do it justice, this is a 3-d audio visual wonderland of amazement, and all for $30 pp I have never seen such a show and bang for your buck. I am very out of shape and tackled it easily, took about 40 minutes at our own leisurely pace. Most affordable adventure in whistler and worth every penny and more, would be a fantastic family activity, and makes a great date night. I cannot recommend this enough or give it enough stars.

  • Emotionally Satisfying

    This had a lot of unexpected amazing experiences. It was so visually and emotionally stimulating. I like that there was a hike to get up and down and we were truly in the middle of nature. A few of the spots I actually watched what was happening several times I loved it so much. Everyone should definitely get a chance to visit here. Thank you so much for whoever designed and physically created this truly magical experience.
