Things to do at Jewel Changi Singapore

Jewel Changi Airport needs to introduction. Locals and visitors flock over in the droves for that million-dollar shot with the famous Rain Vortex in the background. And not to mention, the mall is chock full with delish grub, tempting stores, and of course, attractions that can keep you entertained for hours. 

Trust us when we say – there’s a lot to cover. So here’s a comprehensive guide to all the attractions at Jewel Changi:

– Canopy Park –

At the top floor of Jewel Changi is the Canopy Park, which has many alfresco-style eateries in the comfort of aircon and pockets of greenery. Here are some play areas both kids and adults will enjoy:

1. Find your way through the Hedge Maze

This English garden-style Hedge Maze will have you feeling like Alice in Wonderland as you work your way through the walls of shrubbery. The hedge is built tall enough such that even if you’re Yao Ming, you won’t be able to peek out over it. So, yup, no cheating.

It’s not all that clear-cut either – there are swing gates which you can push in different directions to alter the whole path.

Artificial flowers bloom open as you stroll past certain points.

A watchtower stands at the end, from which you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the entire maze. Help direct your lost friends from the top – or have a good laugh watching them scramble around like ants, if you so prefer. Muahahaha.

2. Conquer a psychedelic Mirror Maze

If the Hedge Maze is no kick, perhaps you can anticipate a greater challenge at the trippy Mirror Maze. You’ll be second-guessing every step, and wondering if you’re about to walk into a wall or an actual opening.

You’ll be given a foam stick to aid in wayfinding. Avoid running so as to not bump into fellow people on their quest.

The end of the maze has an interactive portion, where the movement of your feet will determine how the colourful patterns appear and move. 

You’d want to plan ahead and make sure you come here with extra time to spare before your flight, lest you get a little too lost and end up missing your plane!

P.S. Check out our article on the rainbow mirror maze at Science Centre Singapore.

3. Tumble along on the Bouncing Nets

Pretty self-explanatory – the Bouncing Nets are basically a massive suspended trampoline where you can run, jump, and tumble along like a child to your heart’s content. Be prepared to sweat despite the cool aircon – we found ourselves panting by the end of it, and we hadn’t even scaled the full magnitude of the structure.

Oh, you’ll want to be in pants for this, or at least have safety shorts underneath your skirt (I wore a romper). Otherwise you’ll be giving everyone below a free peep-show.

There are also a couple of rope slides here.

4. Try to balance across the Walking Nets

The Walking Nets require less physical exertion, but don’t be fooled into thinking that this will be a walk in the park, because some of the uneven surfaces can be quite tricky to navigate! At times we struggled to keep balance and ended up crawling on all fours.

5. Zoom down the thrilling Discovery Slides

Jewel Changi Airport - Discovery Slides

The looming Discovery Slides are nothing like what you’d find in typical playgrounds. It comes with 4 slides in total – 2 tubes and 2 surface slides. The former were surprisingly thrilling, causing us to involuntarily shriek as we wooshed down.

But it was the vertical surface slide that took the cake. Even grown adults chickened out after seeing the drop, so a little crowd formed each time someone was game enough to take up the challenge. Of course, we weren’t about to miss this opportunity, so into a gunny sack I wriggled, and braced myself for the descent.

Jewel Changi Airport - Discovery Slides

The verdict? 10/10, SUPER SHIOK. After the initial drop, you’ll realise the scariest part is actually just pushing yourself off the platform. Mind over matter, friends.

You’ll be given a helmet, elbow guards, and optional gloves to protect yourself with, so there’s no need to worry about getting hurt. Tip: Try not to break the fall with your arms and just let gravity do its work. You’ll have a smoother and more enjoyable ride that way.

There’s a milder surface slide if you’re faint of heart.

Instead of taking the stairs, you can also climb up a series of criss-crossing ropes to get to the top.

Not forgetting the stellar view – the top of this attraction is the highest vantage point of Jewel Changi, so you’ll be able to bask in the view of the majestic Rain Vortex and the verdure that circles it.

Jewel Changi Airport - Discovery Slides
The Discovery Slides were inspired by the Chicago Bean and looks very much like an art installation.

But it’s not just the top of the structure that’s impressive. Gaze upon it from bottom-up, and you’ll realise that no two angles from below look the same. It’s almost fluid in a way, with the silver and orange swells appearing both soft and solid at the same time.

P.S. Those who buy general admission tickets to the Canopy Park, good news – a ride on the slides is included. Just make sure you meet the minimum height requirement of 110cm.

8. Be mesmerised by vibrant light projections at Garden of Harmony

Doesn’t matter if you’re not in the least bit musically-inclined, because you, too, can be part of a symphony in the Garden of Harmony. Simply wave your RFID “travel pass” over the ground to play a virtual instrument, and watch as the projected flora and fauna dance around you.

9. “Race” an airplane on stationary bikes at Amazing Runway

Many of us travel bugs have taken off from Changi Airport’s tarmac multiple times, but few might know that the same runways were used for a Boeing 747 airplane vs Porsche 911 car race back in 2009. Amazing Runway sort of recreates that experience, where up to 10 people can pedal away on a stationary bikes to beat a virtual plane.

Pre-flight workout, settled.

10. View hundreds of flight paths at the Sky Deck

Being the best airport in the world, it’s no surprise that there are hundreds of flight routes to and from Changi Airport. The Sky Deck gives you a complete overview of that, with bites of information on each of the featured countries.

Things to do at Jewel Changi Airport, Singapore


Even till today, the novelty of Jewel Changi Airport hasn’t waned – and it probably won’t be any less magical for years to come. We can’t promise that you won’t be engulfed by the human traffic though, so we suggest planning your visit in advance and avoiding peak lunch and dinner hours.

There are a good number of shops and eateries open 24/7 anyway, so not to worry even if you’re waiting for a red-eye flight and feel the urge to explore. Our only gripe is that both the Canopy Park and Changi Experience Studio are ticketed attractions, but I guess that’s understandable as there’s a need for crowd control and funding of maintenance of the place.
