This year’s Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay is bigger and better with more attractions that will delight kids: such as the Ice Palace, Magical Forest and Santa’s Cottage where a real life Santa sits waiting by the fireplace. What’s best is that winter has come to Singapore! At the Ice Palace, which boasts a 400sqm skating rink, a 25m-long Ice Slide and a 96 sqm Snow Playground where you can frolick in real snow. And don’t forget to check out the Hi-5 Funtastic House where kids can jump at the bouncy castle and sing along to their favourite Hi-5 songs.
Admission fee: From $4 per adult and kid above 0.9m height
My Carnival Of Surprises
There’s Christmas and nostalgia in the air at AMK Hub from now till New Year’s Day. Relive those evenings we spent hanging out at mini carnivals at AMK Hub’s My Carnival of Surprises. Kids will get to ride on classic favourites like the carousel, Santa’s train, mini pirate ship and motorised car rides. It’s $4 per ride (but psst! you’ll get to enjoy free rides on Mondays between 12pm – 6pm). If you’re there in time for dinner, don’t miss the “snow” show. All are invited!
Snow and Bubble Shows (till Christmas Day)
Mon – Thu: 8pm – 8.30pm
Fri – Sun: 6pm – 6.30 and 8pm – 8.30pm
Oh no, real snow! This would have been a real dream come true in the 80s when we were little right? Well, lucky for our kids now, the first “snow playground” – with real (not soap bubble) icy, snow at Plaza Singapura until Christmas Day. All you need to get into the Snow FunHouse is to spend a minimum of $30 in a single same-day receipt to redeem an entry pass that admits two pax. What’s more, there’s real snowfall on some days so save these dates right now:
Snowfall dates: December 16-18 and 23-25
It’s Merry Fishmas at S.E.A. Aquarium in Resorts World Sentosa! Besides tons of fish, mantarays, sharks, you might spot Santa, Mrs Santa and Elves swimming at the Shipwreck Habitat and Coral Garden. Pokémon Go fans can check out the real-life marine animals that inspired water-typed Pokémons. By the way, you’ll be doing a good deed when you visit S.E.A. Aquarium or Pokémon Research Exhibition in December because RWS will donate $10 per ticket purchased to Community Chest (up to $300,000) to help the needy.
Ticket prices: $34 per adult, $24 per child
