Let It Snow: Snowy Singapore

Blizzard Time at Christmas Wonderland

We can get a slice of winter wonderland in Singapore by way of really clever snow-making machines. And when we say “snow”, we really mean foam.

But we aren’t going to be a wet blanket, because it’s really fun for the family. There’s something magical about the the fluffy little flakes swimming about in the air. They make pretty photo memories too.

Here are some spots this December where you can get some “snow” action, cool wintry temperatures, and get this – real snow.


Snowy streets at Universal Studios


Touted as Singapore’s biggest snowfall, Universal Studios Singapore’s snowy session every hour of the day will span across three themed zones – Hollywood, New York and Sci Fi City. The theme park will be decorated with tinsel and holly, and open for extended hours till 9 pm.

You won’t miss the huge Christmas tree made entirely of plush toys at the New York Public Library. The towering tree will make a good backdrop for photo moments as the snowfall takes place. This is also where the theme park’s new Christmas show is staged, called Santa’s Toy Soldiers, where toy soldiers come to life to the marching beat of drums.

The Rink

Head to The Rink, Singapore’s only Olympic-size ice skating rink, for a twirling good time with the little ones.

Located at the third level in JCube shopping mall, this rink offers a cool perk for little tykes below 10 years old – adorable skating aids in the shape of penguins, at $10 for every 2 hours.

There is a Christmas countdown snow party on Dec 24 (9.45 pm – 12.45 am).

Another snowy foam party on Christmas day itself includes skating under disco lights with Santa and friends (9.45 pm – 11.45 pm).

Also, on New Year’s Eve, the skating rink’s countdown party will round up with another snowfall, Dec 31 (9.45 am – 12.45 am).

Remember to bundle up in warm winter clothes!

See The Rink’s calendar for a snowy good time.

Snow At Changi Airport

There’s no need to take a plane out of Singapore to experience some snow.

Rock up to Changi Airport Terminal 3, where there’s a three-storey castle Neuschwanstein Castle inspired by Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella castles.

The 8-minute light and sound show at the German castle front will end with magical snowfall, where your little ones will join the other kids gasping with joy.

Real Snow at Snow City

Experience real snow at Snow City’s Blizzard sessions where their special snow gun will spray the magical stuff all over. Liquid nitrogen is passed through the snow gun, instantly freezing water into powdery snowflakes. This stuff isn’t foam, for sure.

However, the snow play field here is rather small and there are limited things to do here – mainly sliding down the snowy slope. So, if you want to pay a visit, it will mainly be for the 15-minute Snow Blizzard Experience which depicts snowstorms and winter winds. It happens twice a day every weekend of December 2014, including Dec 24 and 25.

Enjoy the cool temperatures of a winter wonderland at Gardens by the Bay.

Come Blizzard Time at the picturesque Spalliera, the largest light sculpture at Christmas Wonderland at the Gardens, the foamy snow will fall. The 5-storey-high Spalliera will form a beautiful backdrop for photo memories as the snow falls.

Snow at the Spalliera comes down at 7.30 pm, 8.20 pm, 9.05 pm and 9.45 pm daily.

Catch the Italian Luminarie light sculptures showcase, the European-style Festive Market at Supertree Grove, and be transported to a wintry Yuletide in the Flower Dome.

Knee-high Snow at Tanglin Mall

Tanglin Mall

Every December, Tanglin Mall’s snow-foam machines whizz out the stuff in copious amounts, to the joy of the kids passing by. The knee-deep foam is enough for the littlies to wade in.

So don’t come in your Sunday best. Be prepared to get a little soapy this Christmas.

Snow in the Heartlands

Over in the heartlands, snow and bubbles make their presence felt at AMK Hub. The main entrance of the mall will offer snowfall at 8 pm from Monday to Thursday, and 6 pm and 8 pm from Friday to Sunday.
