Journey along a Luminous Pathway, heed the Call of the Wild and reflect in the glow of Shimmering Islands as night falls and Rainforest Lumina awakens at the Singapore Zoo from 1 July onwards.

Rainforest Lumina is a multi-sensorial experience that casts the Singapore Zoo in new light, for a season. On this multimedia night walk through the Zoo, visitors will pass through different zones which will evoke emotions like wonder, serenity and enchantment through the use of lighting, special effects and music.

Enter the Rainforest at Night

Step through the Arch into Rainforest Lumina, Singapore ZooThe Rainforest Lumina experience starts as you step through the Arch. The sound of music fills the air as you make your way forward towards the Garden of Virtues.

In case you are wondering, you won’t encounter any real animals at Rainforest Lumina as the Singapore Zoo’s animals would have been kept away for the night. In their place are the Creature Crew, virtual character mascots whom you get introduced to at the Garden of Virtues.
