Candy Wonderland is located in T3 departures.

Changi Airport Group (CAG) has created a Festive Village at Singapore Changi to mark the start of the Holiday season. The initiative, which incorporates a wide variety of activities and offers, will run at the location until 31 March 2024.

The Candy Wonderland, in the T3 departure hall, is the epicentre of the Holiday event. This area features a five-metre-tall teddy bear, a seven-metre-tall rotating cupcake Ferris wheel, a pool of sprinkles, and a candy cane lane.

Light and snow shows take place every evening. And on selected Fridays and Saturdays, passengers will be entertained by buskers, jugglers, and a live marching band performing holiday tunes.

CAG Executive Vice President of Airport Management Jayson Goh commented: “We invite visitors and travellers to immerse in the joy of the Holiday season and join us for an enchanting experience at the Changi Festive Village.

“Our candy-themed activities add a sweet twist to the carnival, and promise to be a delightful haven for families and friends to create cherished moments together at Changi Airport.”

In the T3 arrival hall, the Candy Carnival features carnival games, rides, and Changi-exclusive confectionery-themed prizes. Passengers can test their aim at the virtual reality shooting game, and win plushies at the giant claw machine.

This area also incorporates the Candy Bounce inflatable castle, and the Candy Kart go-karting track. In Basement 2, younger travellers can ride the candy-coated trackless train, or take a trip on  the merry-go-round.

The location’s F&B offer includes carnival classics such as nachos, corndogs, takoyaki (octopus balls) and Korean cheese coin pancakes.

Just beyond the Candy Carnival lies the Candy Snow House. Here visitors can discover intricately carved reindeer ice sculptures which glow from within, or try the three-lane five-metre-long snow slide and the three-metre-long ice luge.

Passengers can play basketball, snow bowling, or mini golf on a course made entirely of ice. They can also ride on a hand-pulled sleigh or skate around on a snow scooter.

Other key features of the seasonal event include an overnight family camp and chocolate art workshop. ‘A Candylicious Night at the Airport’,  at Changi Experience Studio (CES) in Jewel Changi Airport gives kids the chance to discover their inner Picasso at the chocolate art jamming workshop, and create their own edible art. After a day of fun activities, they can then take a nap in candy-themed tents at CES.

A digital version of Changi’s festive candyland can be found in the Changiverse on Roblox: CandyVerse. Users can take part in a quest to build their own toy, which doubles as their avatar’s wearable. They can also chase down presents to win prizes such as a limited-edition dino User Generated Content (UGC), or rewards that can take them to Changi’s real-life candyland.
