D’Ultimate XCape at Downtown East


“Carnival? What’s that?” you may ask. It feels like eons since we last had a funfair in Singapore, with pretty much all large scale events being postponed during the pandemic. Enter D’Ultimate XCape at Downtown East – the very first carnival of this size this year.

Here’s a quick overview of what you can expect at the new east-side attraction that’s happening from now till 22nd March 2022. Entry is free, and tickets for all rides and games can be purchased individually.


Giant inflatable slides & Uncle Ringo carnival rides 


As a true blue eastie, it’s nice to see how Pasir Ris has grown to be a hub of activities with the opening of a Tsum Tsum Pop-Up, SG Hotel On Wheels and now, the lively D’Ultimate XCape carnival.

You’ll spot their massive 10M-high octopus water slide from a mile away with four other colourful bouncers and sliders perfect for the little ones surrounding it. Dino Inflatable Park – by the folks behind Art Zoo – is one of the partners of this event, featuring inflatable bouncy “castles” with tickets ranging from $8-$12

If Uncle Ringo rings a bell, fasten your seat belts as you’re in for a ride. Following a mini carnival at Punggol earlier this year, Uncle Ringo is now back bigger and better than before, with a myriad of rides for kids and the young at heart to enjoy.

There’ll be the usual carousel, swing chairs and viking rides, with tickets priced from $5-$10. Over the course of the event, some of the rides will be swapped out for others, so be sure to plan a revisit even if you’ve already swung by.

We hear a spooky “ghost train” and bumper cars are new additions you can spot in the coming months.

Viking ride – it may look small but your heart will confirm still drop.

In early December, you can also expect the addition of “Meteorite” – a thrilling ride that spins you around wildly, tilting up to 45 degrees. Be warned: don’t go on it with a full stomach!


Carnival games from $5


D’Ultimate XCape carnival - games

No carnival experience is complete without some classic play-to-win games. Here, you’ll be blessed with plenty of opportunities to flex at your SO with options like the tin can toss ($5/round, $10/three rounds).

Pro-tip: Aim between the bottom and middle rows to knock down the tower.

If tossing isn’t your forte, try the luck-based rubber duck fishing station, with prices beginning from $10/two ducks. While on the pricier end, this is a sure-win game so you’ll definitely walk away with something by the end of the night.

D’Ultimate XCape carnival - basketball

Those good with the hoops can’t miss the basketball game ($5/ball). Just score one shot and you walk home with a giant banana as a prize.
