Any one’s a Pokemon Go fan? Good news – this is one of the Changi Airport activities for kids which simulate that concept closely!

In Jewel’s renowned Avatar-like Shiseido Forest Valley, the kids will be kept busy with a wandering, with the help of AR. During this quest, they will participate in activities and games while learning about behemoth creatures of the Cretaceous period.

Price: $20 ($16.20 for CapitaStar & Changi Rewards Members)

While this activity may not be the main highlight, it could still be great fun for young toddlers – just to keep them appeased for a short while. Imagine zooming around the mall around Jewel, while watching water cascade down the misty fountain.

You can rent a little motor animal at ZOOMOOV, located on #04-225.

4. Changi Experience Studio – An Interactive Museum For the Airport

Quite honestly, Terminal 1 might be the most boring terminal as compared to the rest. However, if there’s one thing you can do here (apart from making Jewel your destination), head to the Aviation deck at Level 3 to watch airplanes take off.

While it doesn’t replace the itch for flying, it can be quite a therapeutic experience.

Terminal 2

6. Explore Changi Jurassic Mile Park Connector

Spoiler: there’s not much to do at T4 Changi Airport for kids. So unless you’re here to pick up someone and looking for time to kill, skip coming here (especially since you have to take a separate shuttle bus!)

Although, what you can find here are some installations like the whimsical hanging bird sculpture located on Levels 1 & 2, as well as a nostalgic Singaporean trishaw sculpture on Level 2.

When you’re bored, head up to the Kopitiam on Level 2 to satiate your hunger – though there’s also other options like Bak Kut Teh, Andes, Aji Ichi Sushi Bar.
