Safari Boo 2016 - Halloween Event at River Safari, Singapore - Bumble Bee Mum

Held over six nights on 21, 22, 23, 28, 29 & 30 Oct 2016, Safari Boo is back again at River Safari Singapore for its third year! We were invited to a media preview of this year’s Safari Boo earlier this week, and without further ado, come join us on an out-of-this-world Halloween celebration!

As we made our way towards the entrance of River Safari, we were greeted by lights hanging from the trees which reminded me more of Christmas rather than Halloween.  Indeed, this was a ‘Merry-Not-Scary’ event – specially catered for kids and not meant to scare them in any way.

As we made our way through the ticket gantry, we were greeted by an UFO.  The theme this year was ‘Aliens and Monsters’.

The kids each picked up a pumpkin-shaped bag for them to collect their treats in the park.

Making our way down the corridor, we were surrounded by colourful lights and decorations.

Along the way, we met many Aliens and Monsters who were all ready to greet the kids!

Some of them even had treats for the kids – no need for any tricks.

Whether or not they had treats, all the Aliens and Monsters were photo-ready and more than happy to pose for a snapshot with the kids.

5 year old MF was daring enough to go up to all the Aliens and Monsters to take photos with them, but 3 year old MY was scared of them initially and would only go up if I accompanied him.

Just beside the Alien Funshop, there was a station where we could spin a wheel to get a prize – courtesy of Vitagen.  Be prepared to queue for this though.
