Night Safari Entices Singapore With Preview of Mystica

Singapore — Ahead of the official opening of Night Safari’s Mystica on 7 December, spirited dreamforest folks turned Singapore’s Orchard Road into their playground on Saturday 1 December and added an air of mystery and charm to the bustling shopping belt.

Sporting lit-up costumes, the Bubbleman, Tribal Queen, Love Bird, Budding Flower and a pair of cheeky Wallaby Men mingled with passers-by with their dramatic demeanour. Wherever they went, the entourage left a trail of bobbing blue lighted balloons, which were a popular takeaway with the young-at-heart. Some members of the public who joined in the fun and merriment even won Night Safari tickets and merchandise.

Members of the public are invited to soak in the enchanting forest cheer and be captivated by the playful antics of the spirited dreamforest folks with Mystica at Night Safari this December. Mystica happens on Fridays and Saturdays, and Christmas Eve and Day, between 7-25 December.

Held for the second time running, this year’s installment beckons you into an enchanted wildlife wonderland inspired by Night Safari’s latest attraction – Wallaby Trail, which brings visitors through a fascinating discovery of flora and fauna in the Australasian region of Australia, New Guinea and New Zealand.

In addition to the spirited dreamforest characters, guests can expect close encounters with a range of marsupials, including the parma and Bennett’s wallabies in a walk-through exhibit designed to let visitors get as close as possible to its residents. Other animals include Australia’s native bird, the tawny frogmouth, and the white-lipped python from Papua New Guinea.

Dates: 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 24 and 25 December 2012 (Fri and Sat, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day)
Time: 6:30pm – 9:30pm
