The annual Changi Festive Village kicked off on Friday (Nov 4) with The Underground Carnival at Changi Airport Terminal 3. 

Visitors can expect over 30 indoor rides, game booths and photo opportunities at this year’s carnival, with activities spanning two floors. 

The Underground Carnival will run till Apr 2, 2023 and is split into three sections; The Great World, The Modern World and The Future World. 

The Great World is located in basement two of Terminal 3, and is a recreation of the Tua Seh Kai Great World Amusement Park featuring carnival games and rides, heritage photo zones, and a “mama shop” selling old school snacks.

At The Modern World located in basement two of Terminal 3, visitors can test their aim, strength, and luck at various game booths such as the Ball the Clown ball toss or the King Hammer strongman challenge.

There will also be a 3D shooting gallery for players to pit their skills against each other. Winners will be able to bring home plushies.
