The Winter Fantasy

The initial section of the park, which explores themes of the winter and arctic exploration.

The Skating Unicorn

A representation of both fantasy and light, the Skating Unicorn stands 13’ tall and is covered in LED lights — its multi-star decorations glisten over blue and purple satin with smaller blinking acrylic balls decorating the surrounding ground.

The Castle in the Clouds

Decorated with multi-star LED blinking lights that flicker between hues of blue and purple. The Castle In The Clouds measures 19’5” by 22’11,” emerging from a base of clouds that measures 29’5” by 49’1” with the widest point at 35’ across. Visitors may climb the clouds and ride down a 9’8” tall slide that features interactive lighting elements.

The Frosted Forest

In a forest frosted by snow, lights cascading over the trees cast enchanting expressions of light and shadow! The Frosted Forest features 12 ice-covered trees with the tallest standing 13’1” above the ground — the entire area measures 49’2” by 32’9” is covered by blinking LED icicles and snowflakes that create a shimmering meteor shower effect.

The Icy Valley

The Icy Valley measures 98’ by 82’ and features penguins and polar bears roving an arctic environment. See if you can spot one sly fox! Ice covered trees vary in height from 4’11” to 9’8” and semi-transparent satin fabric combine with LED snowflakes to produce a blinking meteor shower effect!

The Frosted Christmas Tree

Of these five magnificent frosted Christmas trees, the tallest soars 39’5” above the ground with a 19’8” diameter base. The two middle-sized trees each stand 22’11” tall with 11’4” diameter bases. And the two smallest trees each stand 16’3” tall with 8’2” diameter bases.

The Arctic Freeze

The Arctic Freeze is a place for ice monsters of all kinds — a true tundra with ice spikes emerging from the ground and standing between 6’6” and 16’5” tall, flanking the sides of a 65’62” long pathway that cuts through the frozen landscape decorated with LED lights and semitransparent satin fabric.

The Frozen Field

The Frozen Field features sculptures of snowflakes and ice formations — satin fabric and LED lights decorate a reflective acrylic surface that covers the ground. This wintery environment is the last leg before an epic journey into warmer territory.

With a total Instagram following of over 4.4 million between all the cats, this may well be the most star-studded cat lineup of all time!
