The season of festive cheer is here once again. Aside from the traditional carols and yuletide decors splayed out in the streets, there’s something unique shoppers can look forward to in one mall in Bishan this holiday season.
Junction 8 is giving our Christmas shopping tradition a modern twist with an out-of-this-world theme aptly dubbed as “Gateway to Space” hosted at the mall’s level 2 Atrium starting this November 19 to December 2.
This Mall in SG is Serving a VR Kind of Christmas
The event will host a number of virtual and interactive activities from an immersive VR adventure to a space- themed Christmas market for the whole family.
Adventure-seekers will be in for a thrilling ride at ‘Straight into Space’ where they will get front row seats to a one-of-a-kind space adventure through the lens of a virtual reality experience filled with 180 to 360 manoeuvres that will keep guests at the edge of their seats.
After all the adrenaline rush, guests can take a mellow walk down a starlit path and into the ‘Reach for the Stars,’ a ‘celestial’ room filled with alluring light installations. It’s the perfect place to snap an IG-worthy selfie to highlight your Christmas experience.
But the fun doesn’t just end there because another space journey awaits guests at the Galactic Explorers, where an intergalactic adventure takes form in a virtual reality movie.
And if you’re feeling lucky, you can play at the Rocket Claw Machine in the Instant Cheer Section for a chance to grab some exciting prizes you can bring home from this one-of-a-kind experience. There are SGD 20,000-worth of prizes up for grabs so be sure to check it out, too.
During the holidays, a Christmas shopping is a must. You can check out the mall’s Christmas Market for some great gift ideas for your last-minute Christmas shopping.
How to Snag some Space Passes
To get your tickets to the event, all you have to do is to spend at least SGD 50 at Junction 8 to redeem a Space Pass to Gateway to Space. A Space Pass allows users access to all activities as well as a SGD 10 Christmas Market shopping credit (terms and conditions apply, as usual).
