Unless you have been living under a rock, most of you with social media accounts would have heard of the upcoming Prudential Marina Bay Carnival that is set to open doors to the public tomorrow (15 Dec 2017). Spanning across The Promontory and Bayfront Event Space at Marina Bay, you can expect nothing but tons of fun and games!
Featuring both thrilling and kid-friendly rides and games, and over a million plush toys from Marvel and Pixar (say whaaat?!), the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival is working with an international community of fairground experts to host more than 40 attractions from all over the world—some of them are in Singapore for the very first time! Yes, this is one enormous fair you should be looking forward to.
While admission to the carnival is free, visitors have to purchase a stored value card to enjoy the rides and games. Now, are you ready for some excitement at the biggest carnival in Singapore?
#1 FEEL THE RUSH OF ADRENALINE ON THRILLING RIDES
Dare devils have to make a beeline for the star attraction of the carnival— the Star Flyer. The gigantic tower ride offers riders not just an exhilarating adrenaline rush, but also a panoramic view of the city’s skyline.
Hailing from the US, Mach 5 is a ride that spins you in rapid clockwise and anti-clockwise directions at 55 metres high. This is definitely not one for the fainthearted!
Scream your lungs out on the Euro Coaster, a ride from Italy which happens to be the largest ride at the carnival, taking up a huge land space of 700 square metres.
#2 LOTS OF KID-FRIENDLY ATTRACTIONS
There is no shame if thrilling rides are not your thing. Instead, look forward to all the family-friendly attractions that promise lots of fun without the fear factor.
No carnival or theme park is complete without a pirate ship. At the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival, Das Fun Schiff from Germany will have you swinging at various levels of angular momentum. Parents bringing their little ones along will definitely create many precious memories together on this ride!
Jungle River is essentially a boat ride where riders sit on wooden logs that will transport them along the meandering “river” before ending off with a mini splash. On such a humid day, there is nothing better than getting soaking wet on a boat ride at a carnival!
Other rides that will be featured at the carnival include Lighthouse Slip, Paddle Boats, Dodgems and more.
#3 WIN COOL PRIZES AT THE CARNIVAL GAMES
There are over a million prizes up for grabs so everyone stands a high chance to bring home soft toys from big American animation film studios including Marvel, Pixar and Dreamworks.
We were screaming with delight when we saw the larger-than-life plush toys that are waiting to be brought home!
#4 YUMMY CARNIVAL MUNCHIES
Fill up your tummy with carnival grub to sustain your energy throughout the day. With more than 20 stall vendors to choose from each week, you are certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to the wide range of food such as sweet and savoury snacks and even substantial meals such as chili crab pasta and pulled beef sandwich.
#5 EXCITING PERFORMANCES AND EVENTS EVERY WEEKEND
Keep yourself updated with upcoming events that will be happening over the weekends. Visitors are kept entertained with performances by local talents and musicians such as The LionCityBoy, Kexin Tay and Jasmine Sokko. Turning up the festive spirits even more, there will be DJs spinning at the carnival this month!
