Things to do at KINEX mall in September 2019
Singapore Grand Prix is just around the corner, and if you’re all fired up for F1 race season, there are new pop-up ATV and go-kart circuits for you to conquer at KINEX mall – previously known as OneKM Mall.
From September 2019 onwards, the mall is getting lit with a Neon Light ATV Circuit that resembles a scene straight out of Tron: Legacy, and an Outdoor Go-Kart Circuit for younger kids to enjoy. Here’s what you can expect:
Go full-throttle in an indoor Neon Light ATV Circuit
You may be used to the idea of ATVs trudging through dense jungles and muddy trails, but if the grit isn’t your thing, here’s your chance to try it out in the comfort of a shopping mall. And it’s not just some plain ol’ obstacle course – this trail’s been pimped out with dazzling neon lights that look befitting of any futuristic video game.
Hop onto an ATV that’s jazzed up with glow-in-the-dark paint, and ride through their luminous racecourse that’s lined with strips of blue and red neon lights. Since only one rider is allowed on the track each time, you’ll be able to have this dazzling route filled with nostalgic 80’s vibes all to yourself!
Revving up our engines in the sandpit
To amp up the adrenaline, the circuit also features obstacles such as raised platforms and a sandpit, so brace yourself for a bumpy and exciting ride across different terrains.
Those who’ve yet to learn how to drive needn’t be left out. You can experience a taste of getting behind the wheel thanks to a full gear of safety equipment that’s provided. These helmets, knee guards, and elbow guards are also sprayed thoroughly with sanitisers and wiped down between rides, so rest assured, they’re clean!

ATVs and Go-Karts aside, there are also tonnes of activities you can do at KINEX mall throughout the month of September 2019 onwards.
For artsy souls, look out for their upcoming design competitions instead. This includes Doves of Art, a team painting competition with up to $1,000 U-POPP Gift Cards to be won, and Deck the Doves, a team floral design competition with the first prize of $4,000 U-POPP Gift Cards. Stay tuned to their Facebook page to find out more.
Chill out at the newly opened Kith Cafe at the Level 1 concourse area
While you are there, the mall also has an array of enrichment and dance classes, cafes and restaurants. As you have a whale of a time, there’s also no need to keep track of how long your car has been in the parking lot as parking is free for the 1st hour at the mall.
So head on over to KINEX to live out your Tron: Legacy dreams with glammed up ATVs, and let the kiddos have a taste of the F1 life with kid-friendly go-karts!
