Plaza Singapura to launch SG’s largest indoor drone festival this X’mas
SINGAPORE – ‘Tis the season to be droning! This Christmas, Plaza Singapura will awe shoppers with PS Invaders, Singapore’s largest indoor drone festival, from 23rd November to 16th December 2018. In partnership with Science Centre Singapore, Plaza Singapura looks to bring to the public a unique, highly-immersive drone extravaganza that is guaranteed to elevate anyone’s holiday spirit.
The centrepiece of PS Invaders is a 12-metre high (approximately four floors) drones cage that will greet shoppers at the mall’s main atrium at level 1. Shoppers can take part in exciting drone-flying activities and aerial shows, including the Time Attack Challenge, a drone obstacles race, and PS Triathlon Carnival, the first of its kind in Singapore featuring special drones that can transform into vehicular devices that can travel through air, land and water.
Ms June Ang, General Manager of Plaza Singapura, said:
“We are excited to collaborate with Science Centre Singapore to present a large-scale and immersive drone experience to our shoppers this Christmas. Whether you’re a seasoned drone enthusiast or a child looking to test-fly a drone for the first time, Plaza Singapura has something for everyone in the family.”
Associate Professor Lim Tit Meng, Chief Executive of Science Centre Singapore, said:
“We are always looking for ways to spark interest and creativity in science and technology through imaginative and engaging experiences for Singaporeans. We are thrilled to partner Plaza Singapura once again to bring PS Invaders, an exciting and educational event to the public. From designing and coding to learning the wonders of drone technology, PS Invaders is a hands-on, immersive experience for all.”
A visually enchanting highlight is a drones Christmas medley that will run every evening at 8 pm. Like reindeers prancing in the sky, drones are pre-choreographed autonomously with lights making the entire show simply magical.
PS Invaders will also feature free drone workshops and hands-on activities around the drone cage throughout the day. From building and crafting your very own drone to learning how to code and fly one using simulators, PS Invaders’ variety of workshops and hands-on activities are suitable for kids and adults across all ages and experience levels. Shoppers can also look out for little drone buskers, with daily “fly-by” surprises to sweeten their Christmas shopping experience.
From 6 December to 2 January 2018, Plaza Singapura will also host a variety of festive markets and a dazzling Christmas light-up that is guaranteed to make every shoppers’ Christmas merry and bright.
