What better way to celebrate the upcoming Lunar New Year, than at the Bay Spring Carnival. The reimagined festive playground with its amazing Cherry Blossom Garden flowering with fairy lights and enhanced by illuminated inflatables is a definitely more fun way to usher in the Year of the Rabbit than endless visiting and hong bao giving.
Expect to enjoy Ice Magic: The Great Fantasy On Ice, and over 30 Uncle Ringo carnival rides and games, and delicious food that will leave you hankering for more. The Bay Spring Carnival is slated to be one of the biggest carnivals during Lunar New Year, and will be open daily from January 13 to January 29, 2023, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 1 p.m. to 10.30 p.m. on weekends.
You can set your inner child free, and play to your heart’s content at the carnival on Chinese New Year’s Eve, Days 1 and 2 (Chu-yi and Chu-er), when it’s open from 1 PM to 1 AM, so don’t miss out!
Cherry Blossom Garden
Symbolising the renewal of life, immerse yourself in the refreshed beauty of the carnival wonderland as the cherry blossom garden provides the perfect picturesque setting for visitors to capture their memories and appreciate the beauty of nature. A white carousel is also strategically located in the garden, adding its own rustic charm to the vibrant space. As the night falls, get ready to be swept off your feet as you witness the magical light-up of the garden every evening.
Go Crazy At The Carnival
Thrill seekers will be overjoyed with the carnival’s latest addition of the Meteorite — Uncle Ringo’s signature ride that will satisfy most adrenaline junkies. While you get your kicks, you can leave the kiddies to enjoy the three life-sized inflatable play-lands on the festive grounds, and following the successful collaboration with Prime Ape Planet on an NFT-inspired inflatable playground, Uncle Ringo has even added a new Prime Kong Planet inflatable to their repertoire, so let the little-ones spend their boundless energy at the inflatables as you enjoy some much needed me-time getting whirled around.
