Airport opens epic amusement park for families with mazes, bounce nets and a forest

Changi Airport has finally opened its highly-anticipated Canopy Park to the public, and it’s sure to make families want their flights to be delayed.

That’s because the amusement park has heaps of fun attractions for kids and parents including mazes, slides, gardens and an indoor forest.

But one attraction that’s sure to be a hit is the Manulife Sky Nets, where visitors can bounce along nets which are suspended over three storeys high, measuring 250m in length.

Prefer a more leisurely stroll?

The bouncing nets are tucked away amidst the indoor forest

 

There’s a Canopy Bridge which will sit suspended 23 metres above the ground with glass panel flooring so you can enjoy some pretty incredible views of the airport – including its rainbow waterfall.

(Okay, it’s actually a ‘Majestic Rain Vortex’ light and sound show that looks like a huge rainbow waterfall but it’s still pretty cool!).

Alternatively, back on the ground there’s a picturesque Topiary Walk.

The Topiary Walk has plenty of surprises

Other highlights include the Mirror and Hedge Mazes which cover 500sqm combined, and where you’ll find look out platforms for more scenic views of the huge airport.

We’re already fans – and not just because they were designed by British designer Adrian Fisher.

Although maybe not the best attraction if you’re tight on time and don’t want to risk getting lost and missing your flight!

Don’t get lost in the maze – you’ve got a flight to catch!

There’s a Petal Garden where you’ll find 220sqm floral displays, and the ‘Foggy Bowls’ garden where children can run around the misty zone which aims to make you feel like you’ve stepped inside a cloud.

There’s plenty of visitors to explore as well as the Canopy Park.

The Canopy Bridge offers views of the airport

 

It’s part of the wider ‘Jewel’ expansion for the airport, which also includes over 280 shops and restaurants.

The airport has even opened the ‘Changi Experience Studio’, an aviation-themed attraction where guests can enjoy a host of digital experiences. Just in case you wanted to spend even more time looking at planes.

The rainbow vortex is sure to be a highlight

Basically putting our Boots sandwiches and WHSmith magazines to shame.

The venture is spread across ten storeys and boasts a total area of 137,000 sq m.

No wonder Changi has been named the world’s best airport – we’d want our flight to be delayed just to go exploring!
