Peek-a-boo! Meet and greet with Otah as he makes a special appearance at Otah & Friends. Come ready for a swimmingly good time with themed activities and get your smartphones ready to ‘gram the experience! Following an overwhelming public reception of a sold-out opening month, Singapore’s first otter-themed escapade Otah & Friends has extended its run from 26 February to 4 April 2021. Visitors can look forward to an otter-this-world experience with refreshed offerings!

Launched on 15 December 2020 at popular otter hotspot, Gardens by the Bay, Otah & Friends is presented by local collective El Masnou – the creators of Southeast Asia’s first bubble tea themed attraction The Bubble Tea Factory. Spanning 2,500 square feet of a fantasy world, the immersive experience brings together two favourites of Singaporeans – otters, and photo-taking. Visitors can embark on an escapade through visually-stunning and brightly coloured rooms, and seek Otah out before the cookies in his oven burn. After finding Otah successfully, visitors will be rewarded with Otah’s favourite refreshments to savour – refreshing lemonade, and soft-baked ooey-gooey cookies from instafamous homegrown bakery Whiskdom!

Mr Tan Weiting, Managing Director, El Masnou said, “Since its launch, Otah & Friends has received much love from more than 8,000 visitors! We were fully sold out in our first month, and our tickets continue to be well-subscribed. As Singaporeans continue to look for places and new experiences locally, we hope to bring Otah & Friends to more people. In our extended run, visitors can look forward to creating memories with Otah in person, an egg hunt themed to the upcoming Easter holidays, as well as new touches and surprises to the space.”




New Games, Enhanced Spaces
