EXPECTING SOON?: Read This as You Prepare for Baby's Arrival
New to the Prudential Marina Carnival this year (and raising the thrill metre) are the rides Wave Swinger, Freak Out and Jumper Jumper.
Wave Swinger, flown in from Italy, is a family-friendly thrill ride which occupies pride of place by the entrance of the Carnival. While starting tamely, hang on as the pace picks up and you go soaring through the air on this revolving ride.
Jumper Jumper is another thrill ride which seems innocent enough at the start until it sends riders bouncing up-and-down like a bullfrog at a dance party.
Freak Out, also known as Spring Break, is a ride that thrill-seekers should seek out. It sends riders hurtling through the air on a wild, swinging ride.
There are kiddie rides for little ones too. Kids can sit on the twirling Chairs, hitch a ride in Dumbo and take a drive on the Race O Rama.
Games to Test Your Skills and Luck
No carnival would be complete without carnival games.
At the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival, there is no shortage of carnival games. Test your luck and skill with games such as the Can Blaster, Catch A Fish and Hook A Bag.
$3 million worth of plushies stand to be won around the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival 2018 fairgrounds.
