We are now into the winter season and snowfall has already started at Luane’s world. Themed on light and enchantment, this region is full of incredible photo opportunities waiting to be discovered. The range of activities you can do here is really wide – go ice skating or sledding, take a horse ride around the sim, have fun playing bumper cars with your friends or simply relax at one of the many cozy spots. While you are here, make sure you also visit the wonderful ice cave!
Wandering Clouds Cafe is a retreat situated in the midst of nature. It is a lovely getaway from the hustle and bustle, where one can enjoy a chat with friends while enjoying the assortment of drinks and sweets available here. Located on a foggy hill, you can experience the clouds swirling around you as the sounds of nature provide music for your soul. This is a place to make friends, find peace and enjoy the harmony with nature.
Power Up! for Charge presents the Holidazzle Imagination Station, another incredible build by Suzen Juel (juel.resistance).
