Kid-friendly Inside Out 2-themed festival with 6 interactive zones

The annual Children’s Festival has touched down at Gardens by the Bay once again. This year, the festival has 6 interactive zones and plenty of IG-worthy installations inspired by Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2 movie.

Head towards the Kaleidoscope of Memories zone at Supertree Grove, the epicentre of the exhibition, to witness an awe-inspiring illuminated installation.

Inspired by Riley’s Long Term Memory Storage Facility in the Inside Out movies, this IRL replica lets you create your own “memory orb” by snapping a selfie and having it projected onto the installation via a QR code.

After that, hit the swings at Mood Swings, inspired by the Emotion, Joy, and watch the kids roar with laughter before unleashing your inner Picasso at Expression Doodles, themed after the character Sadness. Here, you can paint with a larger-than-life water brush on the giant canvas and watch the doodles come to life.

At the next stop, Emotion Mirrors, learn to embrace the emotions of fear and anxiety and try your best to walk through a maze of mirrors and complete a few rounds of buzz wire games before time runs out.

Then, shuffle over to Fort Pillowtown where you’ll have the option to either chill and rest your head on the pillows or build a fort out of them, much like the listless Emotion, Ennui. Finally, burn off the last ounce of energy at Memory Orb Mountain by frolicking among big, colourful inflatable balls. Swing by near sundown to see them light up into luminous memory orbs, like in the movie.

On top of these free interactive installations, you can also look forward to themed merchandise and an activity trail booklet for kids. Check off all the interactive zones to score an Inside Out 2 sticker sheet and a souvenir keychain with an exclusive Gardens by the Bay design, while stocks last. You can even customise your keychain with little charms inspired by the movie.

Disney & Pixar-themed carnival games & other fringe activities
