The Botanical Gardens come alive with amazing light displays, creative designs and interactive features!

Lumagination is a captivating interactive exhibit that will transform the Botanical Gardens with light, sound and imagination. All ages will delight in this amazing and unique show that showcases the incredible architecture and horticulture collection of the Botanical Gardens.
Take a spectacular walk through the Botanical Gardens to experience creatively themed greenhouses, interactive entertainment and so much more! A warm and cozy tent will welcome guests as they stroll up the front walk. The tent will include interactive elements that will get visitors excited about what they will see inside. As guests enter the main Palm Dome they will be greeted with a dramatic mix of choreographed sound and light followed by a greenhouse titled Space Odyssey which includes a sea of black lights and fog that will bathe the entire room creating an after dark experience never seen in at the Botanical Gardens before. Neon reflective bubbles will float through the air while guests are surrounded by glowing neon colored ferns and ivy dinosaur topiaries and an interactive laser light harp will welcome all ages to play.

The Moroccan Dessert with a blazing sun, moving red and orange lights will transport you to drier more thirsty days and from there visitors will get heat relief in the Zen Orb room. Colorful Orbs will be scattered all around this greenhouse and visitors can change the colors with their cellphones! Careful as you walk through as there are beautiful and forbidding dragons hanging overhead. Take a few minutes to be engaged in the plant world while taking a look deep inside a plant on an interactive screen. The Wegmans Family Garden will be full of butterflies and more interactive fun!

Next on the journey is the Orchid Fairy House where visitors will see a fairy village full of magic and wonder. Time to hip-it-up in the Magic Disco Room! Visitors will be transcended into pop-culture mania complete with a hidden “Selfie Room”, rockin’ fun music and crazy fun lights. From here visitors find themselves in the Interactive Room that will feature huge interactive screens that all ages can play games, interact with images on the floor and many more surprises! After all the excitement and stimulation, visitors must check their Aura to see what color energy and mood lies within. And finally, to cleanse away the hectic week visitors will walk through a thunderstorm of powerful rain and flashes of lightning that will leave a lasting and renewing impression for the week to come.
