Snow City Singapore Reviews
Don't go on a public holiday, as it'd be very crowded. That means longer waiting time for everything: to get the proper jackets/boots/gloves and a deposit box. Inside the chamber, expect long queue for the ice slides. Recommend to bring own long pants and tick clothes if you want to play longer inside. The good thing is that they always wash and dry the clothes, gloves and boots from customers directly, to avoid germs contamination and bad odor.
My kids had a ball of a time here. though all the clothes provided by them were somewhat torn and there was chaos for the right size of clothes. My 4 year old daughter and 9 year old son had a blast in the snow. Be sure to visit the igloo home above the entrance of the snow area beside the snow slide.
