Gardens By The Bay Christmas Wonderland 2019 – Ticket Prices, Highlights & More

christmas wonderland 2018

If the yearly lights along Orchard Road aren’t doing it for you, try tickling your festive bones at Gardens By The Bay instead. Sure, Christmas Wonderland 2019 isn’t free-entry, but you get what you pay for (… actually, probably more).

There’s a Santa’s Workshop, Asia’s tallest golden luminarie Christmas tree, and smash hit productions from around the world – in other words, it’s the most “Christmas-y” place in Singapore.

From ticketed shows by celebrity illusionist Vitaly Beckman to free live shows by local artists, here’s what you can expect see and how much you can expect to spend at the massive yuletide fair.

 

Gardens By The Bay Christmas Wonderland 2019 guide

First of all, entry to Christmas Wonderland is ticketed. How much it’ll cost you depends on when you go – the closer the date to Christmas, the more expensive tickets are.

Blizzard Time

4 times a night, the Luminarie and Supertrees areas will experience “winter”!  The pseudo-snow show starts at 6.30pm, 7.55pm, 8.55pm, 9.55pm and 10.30pm daily, and lasts for 5 minutes each time.

 

Festive market at Supertree Grove

I expect this to be the most popular attraction of Christmas Wonderland 2019, because this is where most of the food and booze are at. The festive market is inspired by European Christmas markets, and feature 24 wooden huts that are specially modelled after those in Hyde Park, London and Champs-Elysees, Paris.

The pop-up stores sell Christmas crafts, vintage trinkets, and festive foods and beverages. The full list of merchants will be updated on the Christmas Wonderland website when it is ready.

On selected evenings, there will also be live music performances by local artists (see the yuletide shows below) and carolling by school choirs.

 

Garden Rhapsody (The Christmas Special) at the Supertrees

If you’ve ever been to GBTB, you’d be familiar with their nightly Supertree light show. For Christmas, the multi-coloured illuminations are paired with popular Christmas songs for that extra festive oomph. The shows are at 7.45pm and 8.45pm, daily.

 

Santa’s Workshop

Santa’s Workshop is the homeland of Santa Claus – it is decorated with stunning lights and a “snow”-filled giant snow globe. There will be elves wrapping presents and Santa Claus will physically appear for a meet-and-greet 30 minutes after opening time and 30 minutes before closing time.

Opening hours: 5pm to 11pm from Monday to Thursday; 4pm to 11pm from Friday to Sunday.

 

Luminarie

The luminarie is the main light attraction of Christmas Wonderland 2019, with Asia’s tallest illuminated Christmas tree. The entire attraction actually took 160,000 bulbs, 12 men and 30 days to install!

Accompanying the impressive tree are over 40 light sculptures, all of which were lovingly handmade with white wood, by skilled Italian craftsmen.

 

Yuletide acoustic live shows

As mentioned above, the Christmas Wonderland festive market is also the stage for a line-up of exciting performances by some of Singapore’s most well-loved artists. The shows take place from 9.30pm to 10pm on selected nights.

The performers include Inch Chua, Jana Ann & Joy Alexis, Sam Driscoll, Two Cheers & a Toast and more. For the full schedule, check out the official Christmas Wonderland 2019 website.

Christmas carnival at Christmas Wonderland 2019

Sorry to say, you’ll have to pay to join in the Uncle Ringo-esque fun. And like all carnivals… it’s probably going to be expensive. Last year, the games are priced $4 and up, while the kiddy rides are from $6. 2019’s prices are not available yet, so we will update when we get them.

Perfect for the children, the fair includes carnival game booths – like the Ring Toss – as well as kiddy rides like bumper cars, mini ferris wheels and the likes.
