Recycle World: A city filled with “reduce, re-use, and recycle” themed exhibits, games, and activities. This world showcases all things sustainable and serves as an area for our kids to practise environmentally responsible habits.
Happy World: Step into our balloon city of dreams, where kids can be kids! Enjoy carnival activities, game booths, and craft workshops for endless fun – emphasising the value and joy of imagination and creativity.
Healthy World: Kids have unlimited energy, and we guide them on how to put it to productive use with healthy eating workshops, dexterity and fitness routines, and other wellness-promoting activities.
Nature World: Experience an up-close and hands-on reconnection to our world! Experience a terrarium workshop and explore how technology can future-proof our precious planet.
Future World: Experience the impressive power of technology and the future! Our goal is to encourage kids to envision and share their future through captivating tech-based demos, games, and contests.
