The Great World: Snap photos amid luminescent floating ‘jellyfish’.

Changi Airport has launched its annual Changi Festive Village, offering fun for all the family with carnival rides and games, glamping with views of Jewel Changi Airport’s waterfall, and coveted sleepover camps.

The festive season celebrations kick-start in style today (4 November) with the fun-filled Terminal 3 (T3) Underground Carnival.

Featuring over 30 indoor rides, game booths and photo opportunities, visitors of all ages are invited on a journey through time with a variety of action-packed activities spanning more than 9,000 sqm over two floors.

The Great World (Basement 2 Carpark 3A) is home to a re-creation of the Tua Seh Kai Great World Amusement Park.

It’s sure to inspire nostalgia, with its roster of much-loved carnival games and rides, photo zones, and a “mama shop” selling ‘old school’ snacks.

Hidden away in the corner of The Great World is the World of Jellyfish (a first-in-Singapore installation) where travellers can take photos amid luminescent floating ‘jellyfish’.

There are over 30 game booths for passengers to test their skills at, with prizes up for grabs.
