Trees decked out in tacky ornaments and fake snow in Singapore’s sweltering heat? #basic.

Junction 8 is giving Christmas 2018 an out-of-this-world galactic spin, with immersive VR experiences and Instagrammable ⯑starlit ⯑ paths. There’s also a cosmic-inspired Christmas Market to settle all your gift-shopping. Best part? Shoppers get exclusive freebies and stand a chance to receive a whopping cashback of $1,000.

Happening 19th November to 2nd December, read on to find out more!


How to redeem event passes and $10 shopping coupons


For a slew of exhilarating activities, simply spend $50 at Junction 8 to redeem a Space Pass for entry to the Gateway To Space event zone, as well as 5 x $2 coupons to be used at the Galactic Christmas Market.

BONUS: As an exclusive treat just for TSL readers, enjoy 1-for-1 entry to the event zone! Spend $50 to redeem a single Space Pass, and flash your Student Pass to get an additional entry. Valid for Tertiary Institutions; Poly, ITE and Uni. Limited to the first 20 redemptions per day.

Here are some event highlights to look forward to!


Experience Virtual Reality adventures in space


There are 2 types of VR activities to try. Galaxy Explorers is a VR movie segment which allows you to lose yourself in a surreal space odyssey. Expect a lot of oohs and ahhs, as the journey gets pretty trippy.

If you’re looking for more of an adrenaline kick, strap on for the Straight Into Space VR experience, a fully immersive activity where you get to journey through the cosmos. Customise the thrill level with either 180º or 360º turns. Better grab on tight!


Snap next-level OOTDs among the stars


We all love a good Insta-worthy backdrop, and the Reach For The Stars event zone certainly does not disappoint.

Strut down the starlit path and have a mini photoshoot. Don’t forget to throw in some Boomerangs to capture the twinkling lights!

Next, prepare for your inbox to be flooded with “OMG, where is this?!” messages.


Test your claw machine skills and win big


Consider yourself to be a master at arcade claw machines? Try your hand at the special Rocket Claw Machine where $20,000 worth of prizes are up for grabs. Yup, no more stuffed toys. We’re playing in the big leagues, now.

Prizes include a Royal Caribbean cruise trip worth $2800, 1-for-1 LiHO cheese drinks, a set of Nando’s new Smoky Peri-Peri chicken wings, and $10 or $50 CapitaVouchers.


Stock up on Christmas gifts at the Galactic Christmas Market


If you’ve been procrastinating on gift-shopping, fret not. The Galactic Christmas Market will be the one-stop solution to check everybody’s presents off your list.

Up your gifting game this year and do away with the generic nonsense. Fetch these quirky items that will inspire a chuckle out of your loved ones, as well as useful presents people will actually appreciate.

Browse through the extensive selection of goodies from adorable pins to statement fashion pieces. 

They even have yummy treats like galactic macarons!

The Galactic Christmas Market is open to all and you do not need a Space Pass to enter. However, redeeming a Space Pass means you’ll also get $10 credit in the form of 5 x $2 coupons. Limited to one coupon per booth per shopper, subject to minimum spend of $12.


Spend and be rewarded with free gifts and cashback


You’re going to be splurging on gifts anyway, might as well be rewarded for it!
