Night Safari transforms into Mystica this holiday season

The Night Safari will be turned into an enchanting wildlife wonderland with ‘Mystica’, complete with whacky glow-in-the-dark characters, face painting and animal walking trails that you can explore with the whole family.

From 13 December till the New Year, enjoy free activities at the wildlife park, along with your night safari entrance pass.

This latest attraction comes with everything from a black light photo booth where your neon face and body paint will come to life, to wandering characters and a dress-up contest.

You can mingle in the jungle with 18 different characters in light up,  fluorescent outfits at the Night Safari entrance plaza.  They include a Venus flytrap, a pair of birds of paradise, a poison dart frog, a roller-skating flamingo and a fairy. Take pictures with them or come in an outrageous costume yourself- the best dressed every night stands the chance to win a prize!

You can also see Prickly Porcupines on the walking trails

There’s also a Glow-in-the-Park face painting booth where you can get paint done in neon colours, and then head in to the blacklight photo booth for a keepsake photo.

Among the activities you can explore, there are animal enrichment trails. While it’s usually a free and easy trail for visitors to walk through, there will be guided tours as part of ‘Mystica’.
