Listed below are the installations making their debut in America and guaranteed to illuminate everyone’s holiday:Known only as the Will o’ the Wisps, a legion of mystifying, glowing entities haunt the night with a soft flicker. Their true form is never revealed – instead they glow discreetly, appearing just for a moment and disappearing again into the darkness.

A wild-growing and futuristic structure, Whole Hole transports those who enter into a wormhole, moving them faster than the speed of light. Hundreds of LED strips help spectators travel through time and space in this immersive encounter, beginning and ending with a movement towards light.

The Laser Garden, an ever-evolving experience, basks the audience in a blanket of endless green laser beams. A seemingly impenetrable web of light is broken apart by illusive shapes in the dark, illuminating trees and the ground in ways never before seen.
