If curiousity’s got the better of you, check out what we found in the five magical zones:
Zone 1 – 2: Pandora’s Flora and Fauna

Entering Cloud Forest immediately transports you 4.5 lightyears to the incredible moon planet of Pandora.
To really bring Pandora to life, Cloud Forest welcomed an additional 55,500 plants of more than 160 species and varieties. Among them, spot native Pandoran flora like Vein Pods, Fiddleheads, and wildlife like the Prolemuris (basically, alien monkeys) and Viperwolves!
Zone 3: The Connection
At The Connection Zone, get assimilated into the Na’vi world. Are you really at Pandora if you don’t have your own Avatar?
Step into pods to Avatarize Yourself — just a quick “full body scan” and your Na’vi self will be revealed. We looked more like scared amphibian humanoids but it’s probably just our faces 😂 Capture the QR code at the end to download your Avatar!
Then, head towards the bridge for the Sacred Space. It’s a recreation of the Hometree, where Na’vi clans live. Feel connected to “home” as you touch the bioluminescent lichens, and witness the neon vines and Panopyra on Cloud Mountain light up blue and purple in response!
Lastly, pop into the Fire Pod and enjoy a shadow projection of your Na’vi self while learning about the culture!
Zone 4: Into Adventure
The hyper-realistic life-sized animatronic Banshee left us in awe as it blinked, flapped, craned, and screeched. At one point, I was thoroughly convinced it was real! The cherry on top was seeing the baby Banshee — every time it cries, mama Banshee will reply 😱
Complete your encounter and Fly a Banshee yourself through the Hallelujah Mountains via motion tracking ✨
Then, make your way down and get to know the latest discovery from the Pandoran oceans, the Ilu.
Zone 5: Encounter with Eywa
Your trip to Pandora comes full circle in this final zone. Play around with the screens and watch the lights move with you alongside projections of Pandoran creatures.
The multi-media fun doesn’t end there, walk through the alley of luminous branches and step into the wonderous Tree of Souls. This room is absolutely magical with its floor-to-ceiling screen — the entire floor is an interactive light projection too!
Avatar: The Experience (available till Mar 2023)
Whether or not you’re a fan of Avatar, the immersive exhibitions and detailed hyper-realistic models are definitely worth checking out.
*Pro-tip: Visit closer to sunset to get the best of both day and night — the bioluminescence pops even more after dark ✨
And before going home, pop by The Gardens By The Bay gift shop for some Avatar merchandise. Bring a piece of Pandora home — from Na’vi tails to plushies, and even Lego sets.
