Twilight Encounters returns with an after dark adventure of fantasy and mystery—this time triple the wild factor with the first ever Festive Pop-up market in the heart of Mandai, Wildlife Cluedo at Night Safari’s walking trails, and the exciting multimedia night walk experience that is Rainforest Lumina.
Immerse yourself in a medley of art installations, musical performances, photo booths and Instaworthy food and drinks at the Festive Pop-Up Market. Be sure to stop by the wildlife-themed Personalisation Workstops and get snap happy with the light installations. Let our nocturnal entourage of hedgehogs, owls and more fascinate you, and listen to stories galore from their keepers. Walk away with an owl selfie, and a priceless memory of feeding hedgehogs!
At Night Safari, channel your inner Sherlock Holmes and trek through the Walking Trails to solve the mystery of Wildlife Cluedo while uncovering the cool adaptations of our animal residents. Receive an exclusive collectible pin as a reward for your investigative efforts when you complete the trail.
After meeting our Malayan tigers at Night Safari, encounter their virtual cousin Tairee the white tiger and the rest of the Creature Crew at Rainforest Lumina—a multimedia night walk on the wild side. Inspired by the real animals in Night Safari and Singapore Zoo, each member of the Creature Crew represents a unique virtue. Pick one that resonates best with you and uncover their powers during the experience.
For an extra wild visit, indulge in the Christmas edition of the popular Safari Adventurer Tour. Aside from enjoying a cosy buggy-and-walking adventure with an expert guide, help our elephant keepers put together a Christmas hamper for our biggest residents and gift it to them during an exclusive feeding session. How’s that for a Christmas worth remembering for years to come?

But what about the Singapore Zoo?
Here be Dragons. The flying reptiles of legend and other mythical beasts have descended upon Singapore Zoo. Not to plunder and destroy, but to awe and inspire. Enter the Valley of Myths and come face-to-snout with 17 creatures from fantasy and folklore like the Unicorn, Phoenix and of course, Dragons from 17 Nov – 31 Dec 2018.
How could the legend of the one-eyed giant, the Cyclops, have originated from a modern living animal? Embark on the Creature Researcher Trail to find out how fantastical creatures were inspired by discoveries of modern animals, their appearance and the amazing abilities. See the legendary beasts come alive with animatronic movements and soundscapes, then uncover their real-life connections by visiting the animals that inspired them. Record your research findings in your complimentary trail map to redeem an exclusive prize.
Which animal can match the Basilisk’s ability to kill in a single glance? Take on the Who inspired who? challenges at the game booths to discover how the unbelievable powers of the mythical beasts were influenced by equally amazing adaptations of living animals. Complete all three challenges to redeem an exclusive collectible pin. After basking in the glory of the larger-than-life dragons, don’t forget that real-life dragons do exist! Meet our friendly Bearded Dragons at interactive sessions. Mythical beast-themed activities happen weekends of 17 November to 31 December 2018, and on Christmas Day.
Apart from fire-breathing dragons, Singapore Zoo will host some icy visitors from beyond the wall.
