Kid Friendly Attractions Open in Phase Two

Posted on July 16 2020

The Gardens by the Bay is one of a few child friendly attractions that have reopened in July

 

As Singapore continues with its Phase 2 transition, here are some kid-friendly attractions that have reopened with health guidelines. Families can now head out to these kid-friendly attractions around Singapore, although they will have to comply with the safe distancing guidelines. These include regular temperature taking, checking in and out with SafeEntry and keeping to a group of five persons.

 

 

Universal Studios Singapore and S.E.A. Aquarium

While meet and greets with famous characters like the Minions are still available, shows and other performances are temporarily unavailable at Universal Studios Singapore.

 

After opening from 1 July, these two kid friendly attractions have revised their operating hours. For example, Universal Studios Singapore's opening hours are on Thursday through Sunday, from 2 to 9pm, and S.E.A. Aquarium from Saturday through Tuesday, from 10am to 5pm. While most rides and meet-and-greet sessions are available at Universal Studios Singapore, the shows at both attractions are still suspended, as are the public feeding sessions at the aquarium.

For operational rides, guests will need timed entry tickets, and up to five related riders in a group can sit together, although a metre apart from other groups. Additionally, purchase your tickets online, since the ticketing counters are not operational. Admission rates have also been adjusted, from $43 for a single ticket. Furthermore, guests can enjoy early entry from 12pm with the priority entry special, with exclusive meet-and-greet sessions and a head start when the rides begin at 2pm.

 

Of course, all guests must wear masks, check in and out with SafeEntry, and screen their temperature before entering attractions and restaurants. All Annual and Season pass-holders will enjoy a membership extension, equal to the length of time the parks were closed. Do reserve your slot before visiting the attractions, and head to the park only after you’ve received a confirmation of the reservation. When dining at one of the five eateries that have reopened, your food is individually plated, served covered, and cutlery passed to you after you're seated. Counters and tables have safety shields, while common touch points like tables, chairs and menu tablets are disinfected and cleaned.

For your little ones, get their face masks here.

 

For Mums, Babies and Children

While in the park, you can rent strollers near the park entrance ($15 for single and $20 for double). Additionally, Annual Pass holders enjoy a $5 discount. If you need to nurse, head to the Baby Centre, inside the Membership Lobby at the park entrance. This centre has a private room for nursing mothers, a baby changing area and facilities for mums to prepare infant formula. Each guest restroom within the theme park has family or companion restrooms, and all restrooms also have baby changing tables.

Pose with your favourite superheroes like Spider-man and Wolverine from a safe distance.

 

Open from 11am to 7pm most days, except for Friday, which is 12 to 7pm, Madame Tussauds also practices enhanced SG Clean measures. Like the others on this list, guests should observe social distancing, avoid touching the figures and stay away from crowds. Furthermore, guests must wear masks and use the hand sanitisers provided. Aside from the SafeEntry check in and temperature checks, all payments should be contactless. Do purchase the tickets online and note that the Marvel 4D cinema is closed, and photo props are limited.

 

For Mums, Babies and Chidlren

For a dose of nature, see these cheery sunflowers at the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay.

 

Gardens by the Bay's Flower Dome opens on 11 July for the public. Purchase your timed-entry tickets online or through the Gardens by the Bay mobile app. This is especially vital since their onsite ticketing counters will not be open. Both the Flower Dome and the Far East Organization’s Children’s Garden will open from 9am to 8pm, and the outdoor gardens from 5am to 2am. Additionally, selected F&B establishments and services like the gift shop, shuttle service and wheelchair and stroller rental will also open.

When visiting the Flower Dome, do arrive on time, as entry may not be allowed if the quota has been reached. During this time, the number of visitors entering the Flower Dome will be 25 per cent of its usual capacity. Similarly, they’ll need to scan the SafeEntry QR code at the entrance or activate it using the mobile app. As per the current guidelines, the group size should not be more than five persons, keeping a distance of at least a meter from other groups. Of course, wear a mask at all times, except when eating and drinking, or jogging and cycling. Do note you will not be able to re-enter the Dome once you have left.

 

Other precautionary measures include temperature screening, safe distancing floor markers, automatic entry and exit doors and one directional flow of visitors. Furthermore, commonly touched surfaces like lift buttons and escalator railings will also be disinfected. Additionally, the cleaners sanitise public amenities like restrooms every hour, and hand sanitisers are available around the Flower Dome. Finally, the air-chilling system uses high performance germicidal UltraViolet emitters to improve air quality.

 

For Mums, Babies and Children

Mums looking for nursing rooms around Gardens by the Bay can find them at the Golden Garden, near the information counter, and The Canopy, near the Flower Dome entrance. Other locations include the Supertree Food Hall, The Meadow and Far East Organization Children’s Garden. Meanwhile, if you need to rent a stroller, these are available at the Arrival Gift Shop for $2 per day, and have to be returned by 7pm.

Essentials you’ll need for changing your baby outside: Baby wipes and changing stations like these from Skip Hop.

 

 

Singapore Zoo, Jurong Bird Park and River Safari

Head to the Singapore Zoo with your family to see these super cute animals.

 

Open from 6 July onwards, these three parks will be subject to similar measures as mentioned above. All visitors, including members, will need to book their timed visit online. Make sure you reach the parks no later than 45 minutes from your stated entry time so you won't have to wait too long to enter the park. Next, each park has a single entry point, so be sure to follow the signs, log your temperature and check in with SafeEntry. Once in, in a group of no more than five persons, practice good hygiene habits with the hand sanitisers available around the park, as well as using contactless payment wherever possible. Should you lose or dirty your mask, you may purchase another in the retail shops.

While these parks are open, certain services and attractions like shows and the tram services are still suspended, so do bring along a water bottle to keep hydrated during your walk around the parks. Also, you can only dine at the food and beverage outlets that are open in the parks.

 

For Mums and Children

Only kids below two years old, or those with special needs, need not wear a mask when entering the parks. Nursing rooms are at Birdz of Play in Jurong Bird Park. Most toilets also have diaper changing facilities. Meanwhile, at Singapore Zoo, nursing rooms are located at Rainforest Kidzworld, Reptile Garden and at the main entrance, with diaper changing facilities at all these locations, and the Wildlife Learning Centre, Ah Meng Restaurant and the Pavilion by the Lake. While you can bring your own strollers, or wheelchairs if necessary, you can also rent a stroller or wagon for your infant or toddler, electric strollers or get complimentary wheelchairs at the parks’ entrances.

 

 

Bounce

Let your children bounce away their excess energy, although they’ll need to put on their masks while doing so.

 

After re-opening on 1 July, Bounce has put in place some precautionary measures, such as reducing the capacity to just 33 jumpers per session. Each session is now 50 minutes, so the staff can clean the venue and the next session can start on time. All jumpers should wear masks unless they’re doing strenuous exercise, and use the SafeEntry check in and check out. Children can scan their identification cards. Everyone will also have to go for temperature checks. Additionally, the staff cleans high touch surfaces every hour, with regular disinfection and deep cleaning.

At Bounce, they’re temporarily suspending a few sessions and programmes such as the Super Session, Saturday Night Jam, Sunday Escapade, BounceFit, Kindergym and Tramp Camp. This also includes corporate bookings and birthday parties. During peak times, spectators should remain in the cafe area when requested to do so by the staff. Just one person can watch a jumper, and parents can get a Jumping Ticket to watch over their children.

 

For Children

While most people can do trampolining, children under 110cm who can walk unassisted can qualify for Junior Jumper tickets. This separates them from older children and adults. Moreover, do note there’s a weight limit of 120kg, and those above this will be unable to bounce

 

 

Art Science Museum

Envision the future two centuries from now at the ArtScience Museum. The Shoppes, restaurants and SkyPark are also open.

 

Currently, ArtScience Museum has two exhibitions, Future World: Where Art Meets Science and 2219: Futures Imagined. The first is a collaboration with teamLab, and takes visitors through a discovery of a City in A Garden, Sanctuary, Park and Space. Meanwhile, the second envisions how Singapore will be like two centuries from now via immersive installations, films, painting and sculptures. Based on the certainty that climate change will require us to adapt, Singapore’s daily life, cultures, traditions and communities will likewise have to evolve and change. This exhibition features 20 artists from Singapore, and others from the United Kingdom, Germany, Korea and New Zealand.

As with the other attractions, visitors will have to check their temperatures via the thermal cameras. Groups should not have more than five persons, and they should observe safe distancing measures. For contact tracing, guests will have to check-in via the MBS SafeEntry system. MBS also uses electrostatic sprayers to apply hospital-grade disinfectant on high-touch surfaces during off-peak hours. Additionally, MBS has also installed hospital-grade HEPA filters to trap and remove particles and viruses.

 

For Mums, Babies and Children

At the Museum, baby changing rooms are available next to the washrooms located at B1 and B2. Here, you’ll also find child-friendly toilet seats. Do note strollers may not be allowed into selected exhibitions because of space constraints and the safety of the artworks or installations. Thus, park your stroller at the parking area near the entrance of such exhibitions. Additionally, the nearest nursing room is at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, on B2 near the washrooms.

 

 

Asian Civilizations Museum

Let your little ones have a glimpse of history at the Asian Civilisations Museum, starting with the maritime trade around Asia. Here, they can view an untouched Arab shipwreck, which sank nearly 1,100 years ago, in the Tang Shipwreck collection. Other sights include works of art created by the interaction of different Asian cultures. In terms of faith and belief, on the second floor, view some ancient religions, Christian and Islamic art, among other ancestral and ritualistic beliefs of traditional societies. Finally, on the third floor are collections of the various fashion and textiles, jewellery and ceramics.

 

While here, do observe the Phase Two guidelines, such as using SafeEntry on your entry and exit, having your temperature taken, maintaining safe distancing and wearing your mask at all times.
