We’ve compiled a list of exciting new attractions and experiences coming to Singapore in the upcoming year. From art festivals to rainforest trails and Minion and Mario-themed parks, there’s something for everyone to look forward to.

So, mark your calendars for these upcoming weekend activities:

1. Embark on a Nature Adventure on Sisters Island
Nature enthusiasts will soon have a new haven to explore – a 230-meter-long coastal forest trail on Sisters Island is set to open later this year. This trail offers a unique experience, showcasing critically endangered coastal species like the Putat Laut and Penaga Laut. At the end of the trail, you’ll be rewarded with a hilltop view deck, allowing you to glimpse nearby offshore islands and spot fascinating birds like the Spotted Wood Owl. Don’t forget to cool off in the transformed tidal pool after your hike.

2. Dive into Prehistoric Waters at Singapore Oceanarium
For those fascinated by deep-sea documentaries and Jurassic World, the S.E.A. Aquarium is undergoing a transformation and will be renamed Singapore Oceanarium. It’s expected to open earlier than originally planned and will be three times the size of the original aquarium. Visitors can expect brand-new prehistoric and deep-sea exhibits, along with interactive installations that digitally resurrect prehistoric creatures.

3. Wander Among Treetops at Rainforest Park Singapore
If you dream of exploring the rainforest like Steve Irwin, Rainforest Park Singapore is a must-visit. Covering 2 hectares, this immersive tropical journey offers rivers and lush greenery. The park connects to other attractions like Bird Paradise and Singapore Zoo. Two major highlights include an 11-meter-high canopy walk and a 250-meter-high suspended treetop walk, providing a bird’s-eye view of the park. You can also get up close to various animals in exhibits like the Butterfly Garden and Primate Kingdom, as well as explore exhibits highlighting the attire, traditions, and culture of Singapore’s native inhabitants.

4. Experience Minion Mania at Universal Studios Singapore
Fans of Despicable Me can rejoice as Minion Land takes over the previous Madagascar zone at Universal Studios Singapore. Enjoy a day filled with mischief alongside beloved characters like Kevin, Stuart, and Bob. The highlight is an exclusive SG-themed immersive 3D ride called Despicable Me Minion Mayhem. Don’t forget to grab Minion-themed snacks and merchandise to make your visit utterly despicable.

5. Immerse Yourself in Interactive VR Cinema
Haven XR is bringing a new dimension to cinema with its interactive VR choose-your-own-adventure experience. Step into the environment where you make the choices and interact with all elements, including smells and objects, thanks to location-based VR technology. The first story, “The Keeper,” will be available in early 2024 in Singapore and Malaysia, promising an immersive and suspenseful experience.

6. Glide in Futuristic Cable Cars over Mount Faber
The iconic Singapore Cable Car is getting a futuristic makeover with NexGen cable cars. These spherical, illuminating cabins can accommodate up to six people and feature LED borders that change colors during special occasions. With a glass bottom offering nearly 360-degree views of Mount Faber and Sentosa, riding these cable cars will feel like a journey pulled straight from a sci-fi movie

7. Engage in Playtime at the Revamped Kidzania 5.0
Kids no longer need to ponder what they want to be when they grow up – they can experience a taste of different careers at the revamped Kidzania 5.0. Set to reopen on Sentosa’s Palawan Beach in the first quarter of the year, Kidzania promises an even more immersive and exciting experience for children with a range of roleplay activities and updated exhibits.

Among the new additions are the YouTube Entrepreneur, Animation Studio, and Makers Space exhibits, providing children with opportunities to explore modern and creative professions. Of course, the classic zones like the hospital, theatre, and grocery store will still be there, offering a blend of traditional and contemporary experiences. Kids can step into the shoes of firefighters, police officers, fashion designers, and many more professions for a day, giving them a glimpse into the world of adulthood.
