Singapore’s biggest winter themed pop-up playground, Ice Magic: The Great Fantasy on Ice is back by popular demand!

ICE Magic Extension January 2023

Last December, Singaporeans got to experience the unique ice and snow activities at the 2,400 sqm ultimate winter playground.

In response to Singapore’s love for snow and ice, organisers Apollo Entertainment Media, with the support of Trident Consultancy, will extend the ultimate winter experience’s stay at Bayfront Event Space.

Ice Magic will open again from 7 January to 29 January 2023, bringing Singaporeans more fun, thrills and excitement.

Ice Magic: The Great Fantasy on Ice, brought to you by Apollo Entertainment Media and Trident Consultancy, will transport Singaporeans away from the heat of our tropical island to a winter wonderland during this year’s festive season. The 2,400sqm ultimate winter playground will pop up at Bayfront Event Space for one month only in December 2023. Tickets are available now.

Open to guests from 1 December 2022 to 1 January 2023, Ice Magic: The Great Fantasy on Ice will be the biggest pop-up winter-themed attraction to ever set foot in Singapore, bringing real ice and snow activities to Singaporeans longing for a winter holiday. It’s the perfect answer to the travel-deprived, longing for wintery festivities and the opportunity to swap out the summer-wear for snuggly coats, hats and gloves.

The indoor tentage, which boasts the tallest tent ever erected in Singapore at 11.5m, will be divided into the Snow and Ice sections.

Snow Section

In this section, the snow will be created using the same snow-making machines used in the Beijing Winter Olympics 2022, flown in directly to bring the authentic experience of real snow to visitors. Over the course of 20 straight days prior to the opening, the snow machines will pump out fresh, fluffy crystal white snow even cleaner than natural snow found in wintering countries.

Guests can experience their first taste of building a snowman, making snow angels, and even bouncing off ‘snow clouds’, all while experiencing daily snowfalls of fresh snow. This area will also house a 70m snow slope, the longest and tallest snow slope ever constructed in Singapore.

Ice Section

The Ice Section running parallel to the Snow Section will bring a variety of attractions that have never been seen in Singapore before, including Ice Bowling and the classic Winter Olympic sport – Ice Curling. The section will also feature a 260sqm ice cycling rink, with single and tandem bikes for couples exploring new date night plans.

The hero of the Ice Section is the 4.5m high figure-8 Ice Slide, constructed purely out of ice and complemented by elaborate ice sculptures, crafted by master ice sculptors coming in to build their masterpieces from Harbin, China, the home of the famous Harbin Ice Festival.

Chocolate Origin, the presenting sponsor of Ice Magic 2022: The Great Fantasy on Ice will be operating a pop-up cafĂ© and will be holding a “secret-code” mini-game for guests to win prizes with every entry.

“We believe that Ice Magic will be a sensational and magical way for friends and family to gather and be merry this upcoming festive season and end 2022, with a BANG!” he said, adding that after the reopening of large-scale events, Chocolate Origin believes that such events provide memorable experiences to the community.

Chairman of Apollo Entertainment Media, Mr Guo says, “Ice Magic is our chance to bring winter to Singaporeans who have never had the chance to experience it for themselves. To be able to do this over the festive season is an amazing opportunity, getting to bring joy to people as they celebrate the year and it’s also a nice way to bookend the pandemic we’ve all struggled through the past few years. Helping Singaporeans to experience snow for the first time ever is something we’re all looking forward to.”

The Ice Magic festival has been an iconic annual performance hosted in Beijing since 2009, timing it with Beijing’s first snow every year till 2019 before the pandemic. After Singapore, Apollo Entertainment Media plans to bring Ice Magic to more countries in the region.
