Our Tampines Hub carnivals


It takes just one word – “carnival” – and we’re sold. Second only to theme parks, carnivals are the quintessential place to find what we millennials call “good vibes”. If whimsical decor, classic booth games and poppin’ music are right up your alley, add a visit to Our Tampines Hub very soon.

Running from now till 12th June 2022 and 3rd July 2022 is not just one, but 2 carnivals located at the hub’s Town Square and Festive Plaza. Plenty of kid-friendly activities are available but even if you’re a full-grown human being, you may just have a ball of a time too.


Town Square – Giant floats & free bouncy castles 


Town Square

The Town Square is a soccer field on a usual day and a carnival zone this period. We arrived close to opening hours to see the space already buzzing with activity.

Town Square

At this event organised by Tampines 3065, find 3 bouncy castles and slides that are free of charge for all to enjoy. Kids can whiz down a 2-storey high slide, crawl through obstacles and bounce to their heart’s delight.

Snap photos with massive inflatables. 

It’s hard not to notice the giant whimsical inflatables for photo ops as well. Spotted were aliens, a red chicken in a spacesuit, and what looks like a squishy purple tardigrade. Do we understand these? Not really. Do we like it? Yes, we stan quirkiness.

Not just a slice of the Upside Down, Tampines 3065 is also where you can find a myriad of carnival rides including bumper boats and bumper cars. While most of the rides here are for kids only, moms and dads can ride with the little ones on the “Robotic Ride”, where you can control a roving robot, Meet Dave style.

Festive Plaza – Swing carousel & booth games


These days, good weather is never a given. So, the fact that the Festive Plaza is sheltered is a huge plus. Rain or shine, enjoy carnival games and more rides at this second carnival within Our Tampines Hub.

Festive Plaza
Shoot down tabs with a plastic gun at Bull’s Eye to win prizes.

You can’t have a carnival without booth games, and while there aren’t many here, all of them are slightly different from the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival classics we’re used to. Test your luck and skills with 4 different games like sniping-based Bull’s Eye and the Bingo-like Thunder Bolt.

Considerably an upgrade from the usual carousel is the swing carousel located near the entrance of Our Tampines Hub. There’s also a mini viking ride where the little ones can enjoy a quick rush of adrenaline.
