Singapore’s Airport Is Getting Two Different Garden Mazes
Singapore’s Changi Airport is already considered the world’s best, but it’s about to get even more luxe. The upcoming Jewel complex—located near the airport’s Terminal 1—will be a veritable forest playground. The giant indoor garden will be equipped with slides, sky nets, and two different mazes, according to Condé Nast Traveler.
The 3.5-acre Canopy Park will be filled with play spaces, gardens, and restaurants, according to the latest announcement from the airport. It’s going to have over 1400 trees, and walkways lined with animal-shaped topiaries.
There will be two mazes: a hedge maze with an observatory tower that will give visitors a bird’s eye view of the labyrinth, and another that’s kind of a combination between garden maze and mirrored carnival funhouse.
Almost everything will feature some sort of elevated observatory. There’s the 164-foot-long, 75-foot-tall canopy bridge, an 82-foot-tall bouncy net to walk on, and a 26-foot-tall observatory platform in the slide playground. Singapore is a particularly lush place, thanks to a 50-year-long government effort to turn it into a "city in a garden." If the Jewel complex proceeds as planned, Singapore will have an airport in a garden, too.
The complex is under construction and is due to open in 2019.
