SINGAPORE - For those with children, you might be no stranger to Rainforest Lumina at the Singapore Zoo, where the night is lighted up by beautiful displays, while your children and yourself roam around in a nearly empty park punctuated by multi-sensory interaction zones. 

In case you are new to this, just imagine the Singapore Zoo replaced with fantastical digital animals, which will bring you through multiple light exhibitions, some of which you can interact with. The light designs are fantastic, so even as an adult, you will be able to appreciate the wonders dancing around you. Note that no animals will be on display during the event at night. However, you may spot some lounging around, as we did! 

The Rainforest Lumina has been back since July 2021 in its third incarnation with brand new installations. But especially and appropriately so for the Mid-Autumn festival, expect even more installations and treats to delight the young ones.

Fun abounds at the LED playground with gleaming seesaws and swings furnishing the area outside the Forest Lodge. Hop away on an illuminated path made of interactive floor discs that change colour with every step!

Enjoy a tea break on them
