A first-of-its-kind in Singapore, the Changi Experience Studio was conceived and designed by Changi Airport Group to be a space that tells interesting stories of Changi Airport in a way that brings wonder and delight to both adults and children alike.
Located on Level 4 of Jewel, the studio presents a journey of fun and discovery through the exciting virtual world of Changi Airport featuring a garden that sings, an adrenaline-pumping runway race, a quest to collect airport trolleys, a battle of smiles and more.
With a collection of over 20 different touchpoints and ten zones spread over 3,000sqm (about half the size of a football field), the Changi Experience Studio utilises technology to present a diverse mix of unique experiences under one roof, including interactive games, projection storytelling, immersive shows and gallery exhibits. Each touchpoint tells a different slice of the Changi Airport story uncovered through the visitor’s participation. For instance, visitors can have fun playing games simulating different functions at the airport and learning how things work behind-the scenes through interactive projection exhibits. They can also look forward to an immersive show that will trigger their senses and imagination about the past and future of aviation.
