Changi Airport Rilakkuma event at T3

With the March hols fast approaching, families are busy compiling a list of kid-friendly activities to make sure that time will be well spent. Changi Airport has an event that’ll delight not just the kiddos, but the young at heart. Whether you’re jetting off or just swinging by the airport for the vibez and hangz, the Rilakkuma event at T3 will be a kawaii overload. 

From carnival rides to exclusively designed Changi Airport x Rilakkuma merch, here’s what you can expect from the event happening from now till 1st May 2023.

Cute carnival rides like Ferris wheel, spinning tea cups & swing chair

It’s no secret that kiddy rides spell glee amongst children, much less carnival rides themed after Rilakkuma and friends.

At $1 per credit, there’ll be a total of 4 carnival rides for your tiny tot to experience. These are situated at the public access area near the Departure Hall, meaning you can let them have the time of their lives and tire them out for a smooth flight thereafter – what a life hack.

  • Near Central Immigration: Samba Balloon & Ferris Wheel
  • Check-in Row 11: Swing Chair & Tea Cups

The first 3,000 carnival-goers will receive a free souvenir card which can double as a bookmark; great news for those who have a flight coming up soon.

You can purchase the carnival credits physically at ticketing booths on-site, at a minimum purchase of $25 for 25 credits. But pro tip: purchasing via the iChangi app grants you up to 15% off, with more savings the more credits you buy. Plus, the minimum purchase gets knocked down to just $10 for 11 credits.

Exclusive merch like accessories, stationery & homeware

From 10th March 2023, there’ll be a lil retail kiosk near the link bridge from T3 to Jewel Changi. Rilakkuma fans will be able to stock up on adorable merch including tote bags, stationery, and plushies.
