Immerse yourself in Thai culture and food with the return of Songkran Water Fest 2021 at Downtown East for the entire month of April.

As part of celebrations, Wild Wild Wet will be transformed into a Thai-themed attraction. The upcoming event will see a reimagined version of Songkran – a traditional Thai new year festival – with various interactive activities and life-size installations, including a six feet super soaker.

At Shiok River, guests can delight in a visual and audio spectacle as they cruise past a series of Thai decor paired with catchy electronic music that will be played throughout the park.

Water guns will also be distributed at the entry to the river for guests to take their aim at spinning target boards along the ride.

To top off the Songkran experience, guests are encouraged to bring their water guns and engage in water fights with roving talents from 3pm to 5pm daily.

Each weekday pass costs $20 and will include a $5 Ola Beach Club voucher.
