Jewel’s Canopy Park turns into an ocean-themed illuminated experience

As the night falls, make your way to Jewel’s highest level, Canopy Park, which transforms into an ocean-themed sea of blue, pink, purple, and teal with bioluminescent light displays.

For an immersive underwater-like experience, enter a cave tunnel lined with dazzling ceiling lights and water effects projections. Interact with sea creatures like the dolphin, seal, and manta rays on screens by using motion to trigger playful responses from them.

The Petal Garden has been transformed into a mystical park filled with sparkling blue water, bioluminescent plants, and interactive light displays that are sure to amaze both young and old. Watch as your footprints leave glowing blue bioluminescent waves on the interactive floor screen!  And be sure to check out the four-metre-high smoke bubble tree!

Snap Insta-photos and Weave Glow-in-the-Dark Corals

One of the most popular attractions at Petal Garden is the bioluminescent pool. Surrounded by mystical plants, this pool of sparkling blue water is a sight to behold. And it’s not just for looks! You can get involved by weaving glow-in-the-dark corals! These corals will not only add to the beauty of the pool, but they will also help support the marine life that calls it home.

And if that wasn’t enough, the ever-popular snowfall is making a comeback this year. Hourly snowfalls will take place around the park between 7:00 PM and 10:30 PM.
