The Prudential Marina Bay Carnival, spanning 25,000 square metres of the city centre, will feature over 40 thrilling rides and games. These include tower ride The Star Flyer which offers a 360-degree view of the city skyline, and The Booster Maxx which rotates at a maximum speed of 96kmh at 55 metres above ground.
Family-friendly rides include the Log Flume with gentle turns and a big splash at the end and the Apple Coaster where the little ones can buckle up and get their first taste of a rollercoaster ride.
How can a carnival be held without adorable plushies? There are 1,200,000 up for grabs from over 30 carnival stalls, the organisers said.
Onstage, home-grown musicians such as pop punk artiste Falling Feathers, petite powerhouse Kexin Tay, hip-hop rapper TheLionCityBoy, and rising star Jasmine Sokko will entertain the crowd with live performances.Each week, more than 20 food vendors will be dishing out fairground favourites (curly fries, sausages, churros and popcorn), gourmet burgers and hotdogs, an array of yummy Japanese treats, as well as local dishes such as Cendol soft serve and Lemongrass chicken rice bowls.
From Dec 8, 2017 to April 1, 2018, the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival will open daily from 4pm to 11pm. Admission is free. Credits for rides and games can be purchased on-site.
