Why should you visit Global Village?

There are so many reasons to visit this popular family-friendly attraction before it closes for summer.

Inside, you can visit plenty of attractions including House of Fear – said to be the region’s scariest haunted house experience with live actors.

There’s Ripley’s Believe It or Not! – a fun family attraction, and of course there’s the games area where the Ferris wheel and other adrenaline-pumping rides are.

A new attraction added this year is the fun mini-golf attraction with a challenging 9-hole course and an exciting 18-hole course with neon lights. Don’t forget to check out Mini World, a fusion of the world’s most iconic attractions.

If Global Village is synonymous with food for you, there are so many spots where you can get your fill.

You can find a majority of the food stalls scattered around, however, the foodie areas you can’t miss are Happiness Street, Railway Market, the Floating Market and the Road to Asia where several fantastic countries including Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, and more represent themselves.

For entertainment, there’s always something to check out either on the main stage, at the Cyber City Stunt Show (a performance with flying bikes, LED-covered police cars and a tank), Neon Galaxy, and even at the pavilions.

Zara Larsson was scheduled to perform this week on April 18, but the concert was postponed due to the aftereffects of the storm. Global Village is yet to confirm when the rescheduled performance date is.
