If you're looking for holiday activities this year-end, check out the slew of festive activities that Changi Airport has in store!
From now till January 3, 2021, step into Changi Festive Village for a fun-filled escapade – involving ginormous dinosaur displays and a winter holiday house at Terminal 3 (T3), and a fun-charged carnival at Terminal 4 (T4).
This year’s centerpiece festive exhibit is the Dino Wanderland located at T3 Departure Hall, where visitors can walk alongside majestic dinosaurs including the fearsome T-rex and snap photos with these prehistoric creatures.
Meanwhile, over at Jewel’s Shiseido Forest Valley, marvel at the 16m-tall Christmas tree and be transported into the magical world of Santa’s workshop. Stand under an interactive arch to reveal if you have been naughty or nice for that fun boomerang social media snap. Get frosty with spectacular hourly snow falls in Jewel’s lush indoor garden and Canopy Park.
For the very first time, Jewel will be launching annual passes for Canopy Park and Changi Experience Studio, offering repeat visitors greater value all year-round.
Another highlight is the unique staycation experience, where you can indulge in a magical night under the stars in cool comfort and a majestic view of the HSBC Rain Vortex with Glamping in the Clouds. Located at Jewel’s highest level, the glamping tents are pitched next to towering ficus trees decorated with fairy lights. Each festive-themed tent accommodates up to four guests and provides many picture-perfect Instagram moments.
Those who wish to spend the night in a cool green oasis can also book one of glamp tents set up at the ground level of the Shiseido Forest Valley right next to the HSBC Rain Vortex.
In the day, the glamp tents at Cloud9 Piazza are converted to host glampicnics for groups of up to five. Rain or shine, guests can enjoy an ‘outdoor’ picnic in air-conditioned comfort, with the option to add on a picnic basket with snacks, drinks and card games for more fun.
For a unique camping experience to bond and learn through play, you can sign up for A Night at the Airport. Learn more about Changi Airport through this fun-filled, 2-day-1-night family camp, which includes behind-the-scenes airport experiences and a festive craft workshop!
Alternatively, families who prefer a more free-and-easy camping experience, can opt for the Changi Experience Studio Play + Sleepover programme, which includes attraction tickets to Changi Experience Studio and Canopy Park, and a sleepover in the studio. Day-trippers can also sign up for a range of day programmes and workshops, including drone-flying, terrarium and aqua-scaping, and cycling at the Changi Airport Connector and Jurassic Mile.
If you can't get enough of dinosaur themes, from 26 November, head to T4 for more adventures involving these majestic creatures. Look out for Dino Bounce, a massive 30m-long bouncy castle, whizz down a 4m tall slide and navigate a tree ‘maze’ at Dino Bounce Land, and continue on at Dino Bounce Sea to conquer a bouncy wave wall.
For thrill-seekers, fasten your seatbelts for an adrenaline-pumping go-karting experience at Dino Kart!
After all the fun activities, fuel up on energy at Dino Fest, a festive market, opening on 3 December. Created by the team behind Shilin Singapore and Artbox Singapore, this is Singapore’s very first dinosaur-themed carnival market. Visitors can look forward to some 50 stalls of yummy street food, festive-themed merchandise and interactive dino-themed activities.
“The year-end season is traditionally a special time at Changi Airport where we bring festive cheer to travellers and visitors," said Jayson Goh, Managing Director of Airport Operations Management at Changi Airport Group.
“With the Government’s emphasis in promoting domestic tourism this festive season, we hope to also show our support to travel, hospitality and retail partners who are adversely impacted by COVID-19. The line-up of activities is hence designed to provide entertainment for the whole family – from fun dinosaur-themed activities for the little ones, to exciting go-kart racing and unique glamping experiences for both young and young-at-heart."
