Word’s on the street that Singapore’s got Sesame Street in town – and it is right here in Changi Airport. Whether you’re young-at-heart or looking to bring your kids for a fun day out over the March holidays, you can now (quite literally) take a trip down Sesame Street’s pop-up exhibition and bounce around an inflatable playground. At the same time, you can collect exclusive Elmo, Cookie Monster and other Sesame Street-themed notebooks and stickers!
Before you get started, here is a list of everything you need to know to make the most out of your trip to the airport.
1. First, grab your passport
Not your real passport, but the special Sesame Street-themed Changi Loves Kids Passport to Fun – available only in the month of March.
Just as your actual passport follows you around the world, this passport will travel with you through different Sesame Street adventures, where you can get your Passport to Fun stamped like the real deal. A fully stamped passport will get you exciting perks throughout the year and a special gift (it’s a surprise!) in October.
There are also a few pages in the Passport to Fun dedicated to stickers. These stickers can be collected from participating restaurants, Customer Service Counters and Information Counters all around Changi Airport.
How do you get this passport? Just save your shopping or dining receipts (minimum spend of $60), and you can redeem two exclusive Passports to Fun!
P.S. Save your receipts – you can reuse them to redeem other items like activity passes for the inflatable playground and a special souvenir (read on to find out more)!
2. Stroll down Asia’s first Sesame Street pop-up exhibition
If you’ve watched Sesame Street growing up, you would probably remember its iconic green-and-yellow street sign and red-bricked buildings. Now, you can wander through scenes from your childhood memories at the Our Street to Yours Sesame Street pop-up exhibition at Terminal 3’s (T3) Basement 2.
Help Cookie Monster count his cookies, and sit back and relax in Elmo’s world as he explains how planes work. Or huddle in Big Bird’s nest for a photo, and remember to keep an eye out for a certain trash can – you never know what might pop out!
P.S. Don’t forget to get your passport stamped here!
Location: T3, Basement 2 (Public)
Date and time: 9 March 2018 - 1 May 2018, 10:00am - 11:00pm daily
3. Keep your receipts for some inflatable fun
Inflatable castles are so last year. Enter the Inflatable Fun with Sesame Street, an inflatable playground where you can tunnel crawl, rock climb and slide down into a multi-coloured ball pit!
The Sesame Street inflatable playground in Terminal 3 (T3) also features giant Gachapon machines with Sesame Street-themed capsules filled with exciting deals and prizes. Give it a try – you never know what you might win.
To enter the Sesame Street inflatable playground, just exchange your shopping or dining receipts (minimum spend of $60) to redeem an Activity Pass (admits two people) and a Game Token for the Gachapon machines.
P.S. You can use the same receipts you used for the Passport to Fun.
P.P.S. Get your passport stamped here too!
Location: T3 Departure Check-in Hall, near Row 11
9 March 2018 - 18 March 2018 (Daily)
23 March 2018 - 8 April 2018 (Fridays - Sundays only)
Check the schedule for the opening hours and more information.
4. During meals, stock up on Sesame Street freebies for kids
Don’t be surprised when gifts are suddenly bestowed upon you and your children in restaurants. For the month of March, children will receive free Sesame Street Library: The Sesame Street Musical! activity books, stickers and colour pencils when dining in participating restaurants.
5. Bring a piece of Sesame Street home
Before heading home, reuse your dining/shopping receipts to purchase some of these colourful Sesame Street Marhker notebooks!
There are five exclusive designs (Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Oscar and Abby Cadabby) available for purchase at $6.90 each, with a minimum spend of $60 in public areas (or $80 in supermarkets, if you’re stocking up on groceries before going home).
As if being embossed with Sesame Street characters isn’t enough, these notebooks also come with four metal markers, a name card pocket and a paper ruler – everything you will ever need for note-taking.
P.S. After purchasing the notebooks, don’t forget to collect the third and final stamp in your passport!
Abound with bouncing fun, Instagrammable spots and freebies, Sesame Street is quite literally down the street, right here in Changi Airport. See you in Sesame Street!
