If you have been to Sentosa’s Palawan Beach recently, you would definitely have noticed the brand new Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre a.k.a. Palawan Kidz City.

Sentosa-Family-Entertainment-Centre---Palawan-Kidz-City

Many of us know that this is the home of KidZania Singapore opening later this year.  But do you know that KidZania is not the only family entertainment facility in the building?  On Level 3 of this complex, you will find MOSH!

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 01

MOSH! comes from the Japanese word ‘Moshi’ which means ‘hello’ or ‘if’. It is an invitation to ‘welcome tomorrow’, with futuristic digital edutainment technology all the way from Japan.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 36

Not only were the equipment and technology from Japan, the tables and chairs were also imported from Japan.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 38

Even the crayons to be used were specially imported from Japan.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 37

But that’s besides the point.  Frankly I didn’t care where the chairs come from – though I have to admit they were kind of cute.  I was more interested in what this ‘digital edutainment’ was all about.

The attraction currently houses 5 activity stations, and I’m going to bring you through them one by one.  I shall start from the most boring (in 5 year old MF’s opinion) to the most fun.  You know, save the best for the last.

Fireworks Party

The Fireworks Party was an area where you could stand in front of the big screen and use your body motion to activate fireworks.   At the bottom of the screen, you will be able to spot famous landmarks from around the world – Merlion, Eiffel Tower, London Eye, Mount Fuji, Leaning Tower of Pisa etc etc.   So we were kind of like setting off fireworks around the world!

Okay, the boys were not very impressed and after swinging their arms up and down a few times, they moved on.

Hide And Seek Table

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 05

On here, you would need to use your body or any object you can find to make the Mosh!cots appear by placing them on the table.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 06

After the Mosh!cots appear, you hit them to make them poof and disappear in a puff of smoke.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 07

The game was fun for a while.  Until the kids decided that their hands hurt from whacking the table too much.

World of Wonder

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 08

The previous two activities did not hold the kids’ attention for very long.  But this next one had them hooked.   3 year old MY called this the 叉燒包 (char siew bun) colouring activity – you will see why.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 09

In World of Wonder, you choose your favourite Mosh!cot from the sheets provided. Then you colour and design them any way you like.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 11

After you are done designing, place your picture under the scanner.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 12

Hit the scan button and wait for a while for the machine to scan your picture.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 13

Once it’s done, TADA! Look for your Mosh!cot bouncing around the big screen!

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 14

The kids have actually done a similar activity before on one of our trips to Japan.  (Remember all these technology came from Japan?)  But they were still very excited over it and kept colouring and scanning more and more Mosh!cots.  Okay, in Japan we only let them colour one sheet because they charged by the sheet there.  Over here, they had free flow of colouring sheets so they were totally addicted.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 10

I loved the look of anticipation on the kids’ faces when waiting for the Mosh!cot to appear.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 16

And when their Mosh!cot appeared, they would squeal in delight and wave to it.  MY was particularly hilarious with his, “My 叉燒包! Hahaha, it’s my 叉燒包!” Really.. Kids. They get excited over everything.

Doodle Aquarium

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 17

MF’s second favourite activity, Doodle Aquarium, was very similar to World of Wonders.  Over here, the kids were given a card where they could draw any picture they liked and write name in the space provided.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 18

The kids doodled away and conscientiously wrote their names.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 19

When they were done, they brought their card to the table to scan it in.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 20

After the scanning was completed, they removed their card and their picture popped out of the card and started swimming around the table!

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 21 (1)

After swimming around the table for a bit, it swam up to the big screen.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 21 (2)

Again, the activity was very addictive and the kids did many many drawings.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 22 (1)

And they had a fun time searching for their drawings in the sea of doodles.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 22 (2)

I’m guessing MF preferred this to World of Wonder because there was more room for creativity.  He drew octopus, fishes, submarines etc.  MY, on the other hand, seemed to prefer his  叉燒包 colouring.  I guess for younger kids, colouring is much easier than having to draw their own picture.

Paper Plane Adventure

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 23

Last but not least, we have MF’s favourite station – Paper Plane Adventure.  In Paper Plane Adventure, the kids were handed a vintage pilot cap to enhance the experience.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 24

Next, the staff taught them how to fold paper aeroplanes with the paper provided.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 25

And they were asked to throw their paper aeroplane at the big screen.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 26

Okay, here goes!

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 27

When the paper aeroplane hit the big screen, an animation of a plane would appear at the spot it hit and continue flying into the screen!

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 28

The kids were like super excited over the plane coming to life.   They just kept throwing and throwing and throwing.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 35

Another factor that made this activity so interesting was that the backdrop kept changing.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 32

There was a desert.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 31

A jungle with dinosaurs.  (And anything with dinosaurs scores brownie points with the kids.)

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 29

A ‘Frozen’ style ice mountain.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 30

And each time before the scene changed, there would be a finale.

Mosh Singapore - Sentosa Family Entertainment Centre - Palawan Kidz City - Blog Review 33

The kids spent super a lot of time here.  After a while, they didn’t even bother folding planes and just crushed the paper into balls and threw.  Or simply used their hands to hit the screen. I’m not a stickler for rules, so…  As long as they are having fun, I’m happy.

Admission Fees

Adult: $28
Child: $22

2 hours playtime on weekends and public holidays.  Unlimited playtime otherwise.

Family Bundle:

10% off Family Bundles for MasterCard Holders:
Family Bundle at $48 includes entry for 1 Adult and 1 Child.

Terms and Conditions Apply:

  • Validity Period for Family Bundle Promotion: 01 February 2016 to 31 December 2016
  • Payment must be made with a MasterCard Card.
  • Valid for purchases made over MOSH! Counter and applies to walk-in purchases only.
  • Not valid in conjunction with any other promotions, discounts and privileges.

In Summary…

There’s no denying it.  The admission to MOSH! is expensive.   I thought the admission for children at $22 was reasonable, considering that’s about what I pay for my children to go to indoor playgrounds.  But I don’t need to pay for myself to enter indoor playgrounds, whereas I need to pay $28 for myself here.  The rationale is that adults can also participate in all the activities here.  However, I’m not too sure how many adults will be willing to pay $28 to do doodling and colouring and throw paper aeroplanes?

Right now, MOSH! is still at soft launch stage and fine tuning the activities.  The 5 year old critic liked three of the activities (World of Wonder, Doodle Aquarium and Paper Plane Adventure) but largely ignored the other two. However, the three activities alone occupied him for more than 2 hours.

I think my kids aged 3 and 5 were just the right age for this attraction.  They were at the age where they were easily fascinated and enjoyed colouring and doodling.  The staff were also very enthusiastic and engaged the kids.

Overall, MOSH! was a really interesting experience for the boys. It would be great if they could be included in the Sentosa FUN Pass or have some bundle deal with Kidzania Singapore in future.  Let’s wait and see.

In the meantime, here’s a video run-through of the 5 activities currently available at MOSH! Singapore.  It was fun for the kids no doubt.  Pricey, yes, but fun. 🙂

Getting to MOSH! Singapore

From Beach Station, walk to the Coach Park and all the way to the end of the corridor.

  • Looks like fun although i feel it’s irritating to charge the adults. At least one adult free for each paid child or something. That seems more reasonable to me. Anyway, great post as usual 🙂

  • Mummy Ed says:

    Wah, $28 per adult IS quite expensive… But it does look interesting. Hopefully they will have more promotions 😀

  • Claudia says:

    Oh wow! This looks like fun!! But ouch! It’ll be $100 bucks for us family of four to spend our time in there. Perhaps will check out after KidZania launched and hopefully a Palawan Kidz Annual Family Pass for us to consider! LOL!

    • bumblebeemum says:

      I know right.. That was exactly what I was thinking. It would cost $100 for our family of 2A + 2C to visit. Anyway they are still at soft launch stage. Hopefully they will take our feedback into consideration and come up with better promotions for families. A tie-up with other attractions in Sentosa, particularly Kidzania in the same complex, would be most ideal imo.

  • mmlittlee says:

    We were invited for a weekday dinner time kind of slot to Mosh! That’s totally out of the question for a visit so thanks for this very detailed entry! I think we will enjoy it a lot! There’s something similar at National Gallery and I had to tear ewan away from it. He will spend hours at end here at Mosh! But little Faye won’t be able to enjoy it other than following behind her brother’s footsteps. For that kind of rate, I rather skip it and go Kidzania though.

    • bumblebeemum says:

      You’re right, Faye is a bit too young for this though Ewan is just the right age. I forgot to ask what age they start charging for kids.. For all you know, Faye may be able to enter for free? :p

      I think I need to pay a visit to National Gallery soon. I’ve been procrastinating for far too long on that!

  • Phoebe says:

    It looks like an interesting place.. but what is the age range of children? My boy is 13 and I am thinking its going to be expensive for us to go. 🙁

  • Andy Lee says:

    The changing backdrop is so captivating!
    Have heard about Mosh! and love all the various interactions 🙂

    Would love to drop by one day.

    cheers, Andy

  • Angie.S says:

    Yes we tried something similar at the National Gallery and Dana enjoyed it too!

  • Debs G says:

    Oooh the interactive portions seems very similar to one that we saw at the National Gallery! Although, I imagine that with a lot of rough play and no staff supervision, things might start malfunctioning.

  • Mary H says:

    You got me hooked right from the first attraction. Very interesting and I can imagine my boy going crazy with the digital fun. Then my eyes opened bigger when I saw the pricing for adults heh heh. Really hope our attractions can lower charges for big families. A family of 2 adults and 2 kids already creates a big hole in the pockets.

  • patrickpang says:

    Looks like an interesting place for the children. I think only my youngest son will enjoy it.

  • Chellie says:

    Activities are very similar to the FutureWorld in ArtScience museum in marina bay. Plus cheaper fee, i think we paid only 14 dollars per adult. Plus there are more activities there, there’s a playpen with lots of balls (the size of a pilates ball) that changes colors, building blocks that changes colors, slide, and 2 of these activities where u color ur own house and it will appear in the screen (and color ur own fish and it will appear in the digital aquarium), digital hop and skip. My toddler really enjoyed it there

  • Chong says:

    MOSH! is totally wasting of money. It is expensive and the activities is limited. Should not promote this.
