Located at the T3 Departure Hall, Avatar: The Way of Water-inspired Marui Pod is a life-sized replica of the Metkayina (an oceanic Na’vi clan) and their abode. Purchase a photo pass (S$5) to take a picture at these pods and be fully immersed in Pandora 😉.

*Pro-tip: Redeem a free photo pass when you spend S$50 at participating retail and F&B outlets at Changi Airport or Jewel.

The T3 Underground Carnival has over 30 carnival games and activities spread across three sections: The Great World, The Modern World, and The Future World.

The Great World is a journey down memory lane. Inspired by amusement parks in the 60s, you’ll find nostalgic carnival games, heritage photo zones, and traditional snacks like chocolate wafers.

The Modern World represents the present and features games such as Dart Balloon, King of Hammer, plus a 3D shooting gallery with various difficulties and maps!

The Future World was our favourite of the three, with many fun attractions like the Dino-Kart 3.0. We had a great time go-karting up to 30km/h, paired with flashy neon disco lights and vibey music.

Here you’ll also find the World of Jellyfish installation — a room flanked with mirrors and vibrant “jellyfish” hanging around. It actually reminded us of the woodsprites floating around in Avatar 🤭.

Apart from carnival games and luxurious staycays, check out beautiful Christmas decorations at Jewel’s Christmas Odyssea too — with an aquatic twist.

What impressed us was a towering 16m-tall Christmas tree at the entrance of Shiseido Forest Valley, decked in blue lights and underwater-themed decor like corals.
