This time, the field is decorated with more traditional elements – patches of green and reds (poinsettia). The topiary reindeers are also interesting, but lacks that wow factor in the day.

I gave the app a spin during a preview sometime ago. There are several minigames that make use of features such as Augmented Reality (AR) and QR-code scanning. These are not new things, but the implementation at the Gardens is well executed.
