Plaza Singapura Snow Fun House
Most of us have dreamt of experiencing a White Christmas. But in sunny Singapore, the closest thing we have to winter is setting our air-con to full blast.
Instead of scrolling through social media during the holiday season and envying your friends and relatives having a snowy Christmas overseas, don your thickest winter wear and head over to Plaza Singapura’s Snow Fun House from now till 26th December 2019.
From sub-zero temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius to a snowfall experience at Singapore’s first 2-storey outdoor snow house, here are some attractive highlights that you won’t want to miss:
Whisk down a 2-storey snow slide
What’s better than jumping into heaps of snow? Sliding into it, of course! Look forward to a dual-storey slide that offers a shiok swish down with a soft landing. The glide down was so fast we couldn’t resist going for a second time.
It’s only allowed for ages 8 and up, but younger kids can also enjoy the mini slide on the first level.

While waiting for your turn at the slide upstairs, you’ll also find a Christmas-themed space filled with lit-up reindeers, Christmas trees, and a sleigh.

P.S. They’re great as props to snap photos with before you slide down, but don’t sit on ‘em!
Play with real snow and create snow angels
While no 2 travel bucket lists are exactly the same, a common must-try for most people is playing with snow during winter. If it’s something that has also been on your list for a while, you’ll get to check it off this year – kinda.
Lie amongst 10 tons of snow that’s created specially by a high-tech machine and comes close to the real deal. You can even create snow angels of your own.
There is also a kids area with little buckets and toy shovels for them to pretend-build snowcastles.
Snap a photo with Santa Claus
Beyond capturing photos of this snowy haven, make sure your have your entry passes and drop by for a meet and greet with good ol’ Santa Claus on selected dates.

Gear up in complimentary winter wear to face ice-cold temperatures
For those who can’t brave the cold like me, don’t worry. Simply come in long pants and loan a complimentary winter jacket and boots from the Apparel Counter 20 minutes before jumping into the flurry of activities here.
Comfy snow boots with fuzzy fur to keep your feet warm
There are also waterproof pants, gloves, and socks available for rent from as low as $2 – you’ll be decked in winter wear from head to toe, ensuring the cold will never bother you.
Alternatively, bring your own to stand out from the crowd. It’s the perfect opportunity to dress up for the ‘gram and trick your friends into thinking you’re on a winter wonderland getaway.
Experience the Snow Fun House hands-free by storing your personal belongings and valuables securely at the lockers beforehand.
Experience an outdoor Snow Fall in Singapore
When dusk falls, bask in the likes of a Snow Fall. Reach out to touch the “snow” that’s gently falling from above – it’s the closest you can get to experiencing winter outdoors without travelling across the globe. There are 2 chances to capture a moment here every night for a month – either at 7PM or 8PM.
Date: 27th November to 26th December 2019
Time: 7PM and 8PM
