After a three-year hiatus, The Great Bay Fiesta returns from 1 December to 1 January with a carnival, circus show, snow-city pop-up, and a food fiesta.

This year’s festival is presented by Trip.com, an all-in-one travel agency, and is held in conjunction with Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2023.

The Great World Carnival by Uncle Ringo

Look forward to ring tosses, knocking down cans and fishing games to win mega-sized plushies. Or, strap up and challenge yourself on exhilarating rides such as Pirate Ship, Ringo Slide and Bumper Cars.

Take a ride on the Flying Dumbo to catch a glimpse of the entire carnival from the top.

This year’s carnival, while retaining its retro look, will witness a new addition to its usual repertoire. A first in the Entertainment and Amusement Rides industry, Uncle Ringo will be collaborating with OpenSea to launch the highly sought-after NFT IP of Prime Ape Planet design from the Genesis Collection to life.

The Great Cirque des Cascades

This year’s carnival at Marina Bay will also be presenting one of the best international circus in the world — The Great Cirque des Cascades.

The performance is held inside the climate-controlled 1,000-seat Big Top, and the 80-minute show features nine premium circus acts specially curated from all over Europe. Of which, some acts comprises never-before-seen performances, such as the crossbow slingers Duo Adrenlina, and the gravity defying Panther Troop.

Without spoiling too much of the show, visitors can also look forward to dangerous stunts such as maneuvering a motorbike a full speed within a confined 5m diameter cage, and rope skipping 6 metres off the ground, on a parallel gymnastic bar as their landing point.

Hold your breath as four raging motorcycles manoeuvers at full throttle inside The Thunderdome, a 5m diameter round cage.

The 2,400 sqm installation is divided into two sections — Snow and Ice.
