Children’s Festival 2019 by Gardens by the Bay invites visitors to step into the world of upcoming film Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 4
SINGAPORE, 4 April 2019 – As a destination of wonderful experiences for families and friends, Gardens by the Bay makes dreams come true by immersing young visitors into the colourful world of upcoming film Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 4 at its annual Children’s Festival. Held from 15 to 30 June, this year’s Children’s Festival by Gardens by the Bay is made possible as part of the three-year collaboration between Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia (Disney) to provide unique and fun experiences at Singapore’s attractions and precincts, themed around Disney’s popular stories and characters. Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 4 will be in cinemas across Malaysia on 20 June 2019.
With free admission for all visitors, Children’s Festival 2019 will see the transformation of Supertree Grove into a colourful carnival filled with family-friendly games and activities, inspired by Buzz, Woody and the gang in an all-new Toy Story adventure. Young visitors will also learn about friendship and teamwork through the various activities.
Some of the experiences festival-goers can expect include Star Adventurer, where young visitors can race in self-driving cars in order to recharge Buzz Lightyear; and Bo Peep’s Adventure, a fun obstacle course for children to test their speed, agility and endurance. There will also be carnival game booths featuring Woody and Jessie.
To top it off, the Festival will feature the first ever Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 4 themed marble run track in Singapore. Happening twice every hour, visitors can gaze up to two of the Supertrees and follow the 1.5-metre-wide marble as it weaves around the towering structures and travels along the track that spans approximately 150 metres. This will be accompanied by familiar tunes from previous Disney•Pixar Toy Story films. The day ends on a magical note with a special Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 4 inspirededition of the Garden Rhapsody, a signature light and music show by Gardens by the Bay, to dazzle visitors with the magnificent sight of the Supertrees.
Ms Ong Chui Leng, Senior Director for Programming at Gardens by the Bay, said, “The annual Children’s Festival at Gardens by the Bay invites families and friends to spend quality bonding time together as we transform the Supertree Grove into a wondrous play land. This year, we are delighted to bring characters from the well-loved animated feature film to the Gardens for everyone to enjoy for free.”
