Imagine being surrounded by the bioluminescent waters of Pandora as you unwind amidst a special light show inspired by Avatar: The Way of Water. Walk into an underground carnival, and reminisce about the good ol’ amusement parks of the 60s’, and take a ride-on a go-kart as you jive to disco lights. Now, you can do that all in Singapore, at the Changi Festive Village 2022, from 4 November 2022 to 2 January 2023.
With a wide array of activities and experiences, this Christmas extravaganza is not one to be missed. We’re loving the creative installations and attractions to visit here, with Changi’s Jurassic Mile (for now, we can pretend it’s Jurassic Park) featuring Dino Glow, a 3km dinosaur-themed light-up.
As you embark on the trail, you’ll be dazzled by the 1100 levitating jellyfish surrounding you, and a 40-metre light tunnel, with plenty of IG-worthy photo opportunities along the way, something new to see at each turn, and even the dinosaur animatronic displays are Christmas-themed for the festive season.
Stand a chance to win cameras, mobile phone printers, and more attractive prizes –all you have to do is snap pics of nightime scenery or yourself, and enter the photography contest from 15 December. There’s plenty to photograph too, so give it your best shot, and you just might win!
For those who want to walk and snack, there’ll be a wide range of outdoor food trucks at Terminal 2 serving refreshing ice cream, local delights, and burgers from vendors such as Old Chang Kee, The GoodBurger, The Travelling C.O.W with yummy hot dogs, and more! The food trucks will be available every weekend till 1 January 2023, so don’t miss it!
There’s also interactive competitions you can take part in: Changi Jurassic Adventure’s 3.5km Puzzle Hunt on December 10, where you’ll have to search for checkpoints and play dinosaur-themed games to win. For the avid runners and cyclists, you’ll want to take part in the Virtual Run or Ride Challenge (S$35.90 entry fee), where you’ll clock 42km(run) or 90km(cycling) to win limited-edition prizes!
Registration for the Puzzle Hunt is open from now till December 10, and the entry fee costs S$49.90, which gets you a Race Tee, Finisher Medal, Dino Bag, and a Dino Plush or a Dino Baseball Cap. Here’s a special discount: use the code CG10 to get 10% off any Changi Jurassic Adventure event (3.5km Puzzle Hunt / Virtual Run or Ride Challenge).

Take a trip through how the carnival has evolved at T3, where you can experience the heyday of the 60s’ Tua Seh Kai Great World Amusement Park filled with nostalgic vibes – you can expect spinning cups, Uncle Ringo games, and even a snack zone with retro favourites. Return to the present with a 3D shooting gallery, game booths, and plushies you can win. Lastly, ‘warp’ to the future for a glimpse of what a futuristic carnival is like, with techno go-karting and ‘Wonder Wheels’.
Put your ‘driving skills’ to the test as you race down a course in Terminal 3’s car park at Dino Kart 3.0, a dinosaur-themed go-karting experience. Dino Kart returns for the first time with even more fun, and an immersive race to challenge your friends to!
The fun continues indoors, with Jewel celebrating an underwater Christmas with a 16-metre Christmas tree taking centre stage at the Shiseido Forest Valley, complete with an exclusive Avatar-themed light show and realistic light projections that will make you feel like you’re in Pandora. Take a leisurely stroll to T3, where you’ll find a gift shop for die-hard Avatar fans, with shirts, figurines, and more goodies. You can even step into a replica of the Marui Pod and pretend you’re in the movie!
Spend the night in the airport with soft waterfalls lulling you to sleep at Glamping In The Clouds, the first Avatar-themed glamping experience perfect for fans who enjoy the series, or those who want a unique underwater-themed staycation.
With many more exciting activities and festive experiences, the best way to ring in the new year is indulgence, and what better way than to spend it at the Changi Festive Village 2022 this December?
