ORTO At Yishun

ORTO at Yishun has been a spot for weekend adventures and good eats since 2014. This 24-hour, 7 football fields-sized area is chock-full of activities ranging from fishing and prawning to a high-adrenaline trampoline park and paintball arena. With its tasty food options and open, green spaces, it’s the ideal spot for family gatherings and outings with friends. 

Sadly, it’s recently been announced that the leisure park will be closing by the end of June 2023. But if you’re willing to journey to the West, ORTO West Coast could be your new hangout spot. The classic ORTO prawning experience lives on but there’ll also be new dining options and activities like a karaoke lounge to look forward to as well.

With just a few more weeks left at its original location at Lorong Chencharu, here’s what you can do before we say a final farewell to a beloved attraction.
