The Angry Birds Movie Playground Comes To Singapore
We live in a first-world country, but we Singaporeans have days when we’re under-happy. You read that right – un-DERhappy. An emotion so uniquely Singaporean, a national workplace survey coined a brand new adjective for it. Rejected by three UBERs in a row, shopping got lost in the mail, data exceeded your monthly limit – I feel ya fam.
But all that is about to be given respite. This GSS, Suntec City has brought everyone’s favourite commute distraction to life, so you can fly off the handle with zero judgement alongside these angry fowls. While at that, snag the killer shopping deals at Suntec City to have a good time on a budget!
Here’s why Suntec City’s Flock To Shop should slingshot it’s way to the top of your GSS to-do list.
Get physical at the angry birds island
When it comes to anger management, no one does it better than the happy, flightless birds of Bird Island. And birds of a feather flock together – our fowl friends have brought their entire island over to our shores just for us to blow off some steam! We spent a day out doing as the birds do – here’s the lowdown on what’s in store.
To gain access to the Bird Island, all you have to do is spend $50 (max. 2 redemptions per shopper per day) and redeem your 3 play passes at the concierge counter for a go each on the Piggy Puncher, Kaboom or Bouncy Mountain.
Game 1: Piggy Puncher
Piggy Puncher is pretty self-explanatory: channel your inner angry bird, pretend the red target is an egg-stealing green Bad Pig, take aim and ONE-SHOT THE PIG FOR 5000 POINTS.
Or in this case, aim for a total target score with three “birds” (punches) to get your bonus mystery prize.
Trust me, you can’t not want to punch something when you put on a boxing glove. Perfect to soothe your punch-a-hole-in-the-wall urges, minus the medical bills for your knuckles after. Here I tested my fury, and the Piggy Puncher will display your score from “relaxed” to almost “furious”.
Game 2: Kaboom!
‘Why are the angry birds so angry,’ you ask? Today I’ve found the answer – it’s the Kaboom machine’s fault. For that mystery prize, all you have to do is hit a target score within 2 tries. After using 9 play passes on this machine alone, I’ve concluded that it may require ginormous strength.
To be fair our playground visit was on a Monday, so maybe the stress from a 40-hour work week hasn’t built up yet. My highscore was a 560 – imagine what I could accomplish on hump day!
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you’re 16 and up, this is where your stress relief ends.
Game 3: Bouncy Mountain
Modelled after the movie’s Mighty Eagle Mountain, the Bouncy Mountain features air-filled palm trees, yellow and blue terraces, foam “rocks” and a big inflatable slide.Kids are entitled 10 minutes on this inflatable with each play pass, so you may want to hide your passes lest they get snatched by a couple of hyperactive children.
Let your kids or younger siblings wreck havoc on the Bouncy Mountain, under the watchful eye of the dedicated staff members, while you enjoy…
