Back for the summer this year in Whistler is Vallea Lumina, a mystical multimedia wonderland experience at Cougar Mountain. Created by Montreal-based Moment Factory and brought to Whistler by The Adventure Group, the immersive night walk officially launches on June 7 with select showtimes beginning May 18.
Located just ten minutes from Whistler Village, Vallea Lumina is staged amid lush coastal rainforest against a scenic panorama showcasing mountain and valley views.
The magic starts at nightfall with guests transported to the site via a complimentary shuttle departing from Whistler Village. Once there, the audience steps into another world that transforms the night with vibrant lights and videos, emotive soundscape and stunningly crafted scenography.
Throughout the 60-minute adventure, visitors are encouraged to play, explore and engage with their surroundings as the story – which follows the mysterious trail of a father-daughter duo in search for an enchanted hidden valley – unfolds around them.
Vallea Lumina tickets are $39.99 for adults, and $34.99 for youth between six and 15 years old; children five and under enjoy free admission. New this year are seasonal passes that include unlimited entry to Vallea Lumina with two tickets per visit discounted at 15 percent; seasonal passes cost $99.99 for adults and youth.
