The carnival will span across an area of 25,000 square metre, which is roughly the size of three and a half football fields. Keep your kids in view – you won’t want to lose them in this massive play ground! Occupying The Promontory and Bayfront Event Space, there will be 40 rides and games – many of which have been brought into Singapore from various European countries, including the United Kingdom and Germany.
Look out for The Star Flyer, the tower ride giving you uninhibited 360˚ views of the Singapore skyline from a 35 metres height as you “fly” above the clouds and The Booster Maxx, 55 metres above ground rotating at a speed that can reach 96km/hour under eight seconds. For the Star Flyer, it’s a no-go for kids smaller than 1.2m, kids between the height of 1.2m to 1.3m are allowed on so long as they have an adult accompanying them.
Then there’s the Pirate Ship and the Log Flume with its gentle turns before heading down to a big splash and the Apple Coaster where kids can buckle up for a rollercoaster ride to remember!
The carnival is open daily from 4pm to 11pm, from 15 December 2017 to 1 April 2018. On Christmas and New Year’s Eve there’s even more time to enjoy the rides as hours are from 3pm to 2am.
Entry is completely free though you’ll need credits for rides (around $4 each) and games, which will be transacted by cards available for purchase on-site or online via marinabaycarnival.sg. Each card costs $10, with the full value restored.
Look out for the plush toys from Marvel and Pixar up for grabs!
If the massive rides have got your heart pounding in your chest and you need to chill – look out for the lineup of musical performances by Tech’1 and friends – independent local talents such as TheLionCityBiy and Falling Feathers.
There will be a host of other performances too from ventriloquism acts to carolling groups – voices of Evokx every Wednesday, Thursday and the weekends in the evening at The Promontory!
If you think a fairground isn’t complete without snacks like fries, churros and butter popcorn, think you are in luck ‘cos these will all be on offer, plus a range of local delights – cendol soft serve and lemongrass chicken rice bowls! There will be more than 20 vendors offering goodies to eat.
