Final Jewel in the Crown: The Canopy Park attractions and Changi Experience Studio open in Changi Airport’s Jewel

The eagerly awaited Canopy Park attractions on the top level of Jewel includetwo mazes designed by British designer Adrian Fisher, the Mirror Maze and Hedge Maze, which cover 500sqm combined, and contain look-out platforms. The park also contains the 250m-long, three storey-high, suspended Manulife Sky Nets which allow visitors to bounce their way through Jewel’s Canopy level. Other key attractions include the Discovery Slides, which is an art sculpture, playscape and a viewing gallery simultaneously, and The Canopy Bridge, which – with its a glass panel flooring suspended 23 metres above ground – provides visitors with a breath-taking view of the HSBC Rain Vortex and Shiseido Forest Valley that opened last month.

 

These attractions are interspersed between interactive garden spaces like the Foggy Bowls - a playing area enveloped in cloud – Topiary Walk - where visitors can come face to face with a herd of topiary animals – and Petal Garden; a 220sqm seasonal floral display. Additionally, there is a communal event space called Cloud9 Piazza, as well as eight food and beverage outlets including Burger & Lobster and Tiger Street Lab.

 

Visitors to Changi Airport can now also visit the Changi Experience Studio, an aviation-themed attraction offering digital experiences on level four of Jewel. Managed by the Changi Airport Group (CAG), the studio uses a seemingly simple cardboard Travel Guide, which possesses state-of-the-art infrared and radio technology, to guide children and adults through interactive games, projection storytelling, immersive shows and gallery exhibits relating to Changi Airport’s rich history and reveals the more exciting aspects of airport operations.

 

A highlight of the Changi Experience Studio is the Garden of Harmony, where visitors can make music through vertical hand movements, which then play out in the form of a mesmerising audio and visual spectacle.

 

Ms Hung Jean, Chief Executive Officer, Jewel Changi Airport Devt, said, “We’ve been delighted and overwhelmed by the positive response from travellers and Singaporeans alike since Jewel Changi Airport’s initial opening in April.

 

“Jewel has already made a big impression, so we’re thrilled future visitors to Changi Airport can now also try out some - or all - of the exciting activities and attractions that both the Canopy Park and Changi Experience Studio have to offer.”

 

To mark the opening of these final attractions, Jewel has launched a series of emotion-animated cartoon stickers via GIPHY which are available for use on Instagram Stories. These stickers will be available from mid-June 2019. Search “SeeJewel” to load these stickers.

 

Attractions within the Canopy Park and admission to the Changi Experience Studio will be ticketed via www.jewelchangiairport.com. The Canopy Park entrance fee is SGD 5 (approximatelyGBP 2.80), with access to selected attractions ranging from SGD 8 to 22 (approximately GBP 4.60 to 12.60), while the Changi Experience Studio’s entrance fee is SGD 25 for adults (approximately GBP 14.50) and SGD 17 for children (approximately GBP 9.80).
