Every year, Thailand celebrates its New Year’s national holiday known as Songkran. It usually falls on 13 April and extends into several days of celebration. Known for its water festival, major streets are transformed into water battle arenas where young and old participate by splashing water on each other. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, travellers won’t be able to experience this joyous occasion of splashing it out in the sun in commemoration of Thailand’s national holiday. Luckily, Wild Wild Wet Singapore has got us covered by hosting a month-long Songkran to recreate this festivity.

Water gun battles bring Thailand’s national holiday to life

This year, Wild Wild Wet is bringing its take on the Thai national holiday with water gun battles, music and more! Guests are invited to bring their water guns, super soakers and water blasters for a ball of a time. These will equip them to take on roving talents with water gun backpacks in their water battle from 3pm to 5pm daily.

Spinning target boards

There will also be spinning boards installed at the Shiok River. 50 water guns will be distributed at the entry point and collected when visitors exit the park. Take your aim and knock down the targets like a sharpshooter!

Life-sized figurines and kid-friendly activities

Additionally, Thai decor and a real-life tuk-tuk will be installed in the park for visitors to snap some shots with! There’s no better way than to relive this Thai festival on Singapore soil.

To set the mood for the event, electronic dance music will also play in the background as park-goers enjoy the rides and festive atmosphere during their visit. End the day off by digging into Thai cuisine at places like Siam Square Mookata, Sakon Thai and The Basil Inn, which can all be found in Downtown East.

Tickets are available for purchase and are going at $20 each, including a $5 Ola Beach Club voucher.

While we may not be able to venture outside the country to enjoy these festivities, you can definitely seize this opportunity to have an ‘overseas, at home’ Songkran experience at Wild Wild Wet in Singapore. Don’t miss out on your chance to enjoy this event!
