There’s A Free Super Mario Pop-Up At Jewel With Photo Ops, Merch & Meet-&-Greet Sessions

Super Mario at Jewel Changi Airport

Picture this: green pipes, brick walls, yellow stars, gold coins, toadstools, and giant question mark blocks. “Eh, this one not Super Nintendo World meh?” Nope, but it is a Super Mario event called Pipe Around the World at Jewel that doesn’t require you to fly 6 hours to Osaka to visit. Grab your camera, or open the app on your smartphone. Here’s what to expect:

Your camera roll at Jewel Changi is probably filled with 101 shots of the magnificent waterfall. But that’s soon going to change once you see the Super Mario-themed photo ops at the Shiseido Forest Valley.

You’ll see familiar elements from the Super Mario games, such as the pipes the Italian plumber crawls through, Super Mushrooms that make him grow bigger and get faster, as well as a giant Super Star and Question Mark block.

See if you can spot characters like Princess Peach, Toad, and Goomba that are hidden all over the photo ops as well.

If you’re wondering where Mario and Luigi are in all of this, you’ll be able to meet the brothers in the flesh at the meet-and-greet taking place from now till 19th November. It’s the first time the Super Mario Bros. are making an appearance in Singapore, so you won’t want to miss the photo-taking sessions taking place today and tomorrow.

Venue: South Gateway Garden, Level 2, Jewel Changi

Get your hands on exclusive Super Mario merch

For the super fans, we know photo ops are only a small part of expressing your love for the fandom. So you might be pleased to know that the event is where you can score some exclusive merch at the event.

All you’ve got to do is spend $50 in a single receipt at Jewel Changi. You’ll then be entitled to purchase items like a 2-in-1 cushion and neck pillow ($13), 3-in-1 travel organiser ($13), and travel pouch ($12). These are great for use if you’re flying out of Singapore for the holidays. Otherwise, stock up and hand them out to friends and family for Christmas.
