Ice Magic: The Great Fantasy on Ice

It will never snow in Singapore unless the world is ending – or you’re at The Great Bay Fiesta’s newest wintery playground in Marina Bay. From 1st December 2022, us tropical islanders will get a chance to make snow angels and play winter sports at Ice Magic: The Great Fantasy on Ice

This snowy pop-up will be Singapore’s biggest one yet, with an impressive 11.5m tent sprawled across 2,400sqm of the Bayfront Event Space. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Inside, you’ll find 2 themed zones, a chocolate cafe, and an ice bar. Here’s what we know:

If you’ve ever watched the Winter Olympics and had an urge to reach through your screen and grab some of that slushy snow – now you can, at the Snow Section. The very snow machines used in 2022’s Beijing Winter Olympics will be flown in to pump out fresh snow daily, which is apparently cleaner and brighter than natural snowfall.

Revel in a sprinkle of snow and do all the wholesome wintertime activities you see on TV, like building snowmans and making snow angels. Plus, gain some cool points for sliding down a dizzying 70m-long snow slope that’ll definitely give you an adrenaline rush.

Remember to reach for your winter wear and pile on some extra clothing to avoid looking like the frozen Jack Nicholson meme.

Ice curling, cycling rinks & a literal ice slide

Fitspos and winter sports fans can flock to the Ice Section for more sub-zero action. Try sliding and sweeping a granite stone toward a floor target in the classic game of ice curling, or cycling around a 260sqm ice rink on tandem bikes. Did we mention that since these are all team activities, they’re also perfect for breaking the ice

Look out also for the star attraction, a 4.5m-tall Ice Slide in an infinity symbol configuration that’s completely carved from pure ice. This elaborate structure was also crafted by master ice sculptors all the way from Harbin, China, which is known for its Ice Festivals.  

Ice-cold beers & hot chocolates

After you’ve had your share of frosty fun times, trudge over to the Ice Bar to knock back an ice-cold beer or some ice-themed cocktails. Rest assured that there’ll be none of that nasty warm beer in this house, or rather, bar-that-looks-like-a-block-of-ice.

However, if you do need something warm, have a cup of hot chocolate at Chocolate Origin’s pop-up cafe. You can also munch on other choco treats like cakes and tarts, and indulge in a cosy, snowy vibe that’s winter wonderland-esque.
