The entire Rainforest Lumina experience is a multisensory spectacle for all age groups to enjoy. It was created in partnership with the Moment Factory that has already installed similar experiences in other parts of the world. Once you begin the trail, you will be introduced to the animals from Creature crew, a group of animal personas who will guide you through the entire trail. Throughout the Rainforest Lumina Trail and its many attractions, you will interact with the many installations as you delight in their audio-visual splendour. Walk through experiences like the Garden of Virtues, the Luminous Pathway, the Shimmering Islands, and the Wall of Fame. Each one is a different experience that will showcase animals like orangutans, pangolins, and flying foxes to name a few. As you walk through the forest at night, you will watch yourself get immersed in the entire adventure while wishing for it to never end.

Rainforest Lumina Review

We enjoyed the lights and music. Particularly the interactive sections. I liked the voice activated lights. My 3 year old enjoyed the jumping animal pads and just generally dancing around in the lights. We walked slow and were still only there for an hour, so perhaps costly in terms of time spent there, but still enjoyable.

Ritasaurus, TripAdvisor, August 2018

Great, great and great. Cannot take lots photo cause not enough light for camera, especially mobile camera, so the best way to know is visiting the attraction.
