S.E.A. Aquarium’s Glowing Ocean (30 November 2019 – 1 January 2020)
S.E.A. Aquarium’s Glowing Ocean puts the spotlight on the science behind the signs and signals emitted by the ocean’s hues. As vibrant as these colours are beautiful to look at, the luminosity of the ocean serves as warning signals on the adverse effects of climate change on marine life.
Guests can look forward to four installations:
1. The Hidden Truth: Armed with a UV torch, guests can uncover hidden messages on an interactive mural by doodling group Band of Doodlers. Through the installation, the group hopes to highlight the dire effects of climate change on marine life and how everyone can make changes to their daily routine to combat climate change.
2. When Corals Fade: Conceptualised by RWS’s creative team, When Corals Fade depicts how rising temperatures trigger an ominous chain reaction which causes multi-hued corals to bleach and eventually die. The installation espouses the importance of healthy corals for ecosystems to thrive and how an adverse shift will affect the ecological balance of coral reef communities and marine life, and ultimately the local coastal communities whose livelihoods depend on the reefs for food, materials and medicine.
3. Kelp Me!: Often referred to as the “trees of the marine world”, kelp provides shelter and food to marine animals. Designed and created by local crocheting artist Kelly Limerick along with 20 volunteers, this life-sized kelp forest is made from upcycling plastic waste.
4. Beautiful Warning Signals: A collaboration between Milan-based art and design duo Carnovsky and Singapore’s Kult Studio & Gallery, young learners will learn through a light-art installation, how much harm plankton growth and algae bloom can pose in the ocean.
Singapore Residents and families enjoy an online promotion of S$78 (U.P. S$98) for a Glowing Ocean Family Bundle, which includes two adult and one child one-day tickets from 11 November 2019 – 1 January 2020. For more information on Glowing Ocean, visit here.

Thrill-seekers can let their hair down and frolic in the water at Adventure Cove Waterpark with a month of fun-filled activities across 16 event days in Get Set Get Wet.
Held on weekends & public holidays, the event’s highlight is the Cosmic Invasion Water Parade, a one-of-a-kind parade featuring aliens and robots that will make its way around the park and end with a splash at Bluwater Bay.
Guests can continue to enjoy the attractions in the water theme park and feel the adrenaline rush zipping down thrill-packed water slides such as Riptide Rocket, Southeast Asia’s first hydro magnetic coaster. As the region’s only waterpark with marine life elements, guests can immerse in marine habitats, such as snorkelling with thousands of marine animals at the colourful Rainbow Reef or sign up for an unforgettable encounter with ethereal rays.
