Starwars has landed at Changi Airport

[ Media Invite ]

Force is strong at Changi Airport, queues are longer!
Not piloting today, but standing so close to our dream X-Wing fighter is already epic.

Those in the queues can actually cosplay in Starwars costume and take a cockpit photo too, how cool!
(You can dress as a Chewbacca or Imperial Stormtroopers or rebel and pose in the cockpit.)

Never mind if this war did not happen in a galaxy far far away, the Starwars exhibition is happening in the East, at Changi Airport. Starwars Fans are turning up to get up close with X-Wing or TIE fighters.

A life size X-Wing! Look at the fans surrounding the fighter, second floor is packed too.

Pretty cool premiere before Starwars 7 is released. If only the fighter can open its X πŸ™‚


Similar to previous traditions, a bouncing castle has appeared at T3 row 11. This lighthouse is super easy to surmount, just hit the button and see the lights . Did you noticed the Northern Lights (Aurora) backdrop?

Kids can try navigating their BB-8 through obstacles too. First come first serve, and slots fill up pretty fast!

Norway is not only about Vikings and Salmons, there are pretty awesome landscapes and alps.

Long queue just to pose with Stormtrooper! Can you spot his white helmet under the pillar?

Every Sat 4pm, from now till 02Jan, Stormtroopers will battle Imperial guards around X-wing fighter. This is the most crowded period! Other than 4pm, you should have a lot of opportunities to selfie with X-Wing or TIE.

Whichever angle you look at the TIE, it sill looks menacing and impressive. Perhaps I am a fan of the Dark Side πŸ™‚

Tips to enjoy Starwars at Changi Airport :
– There are more interactions behind the X-Wing wall at T3, perhaps we can find “Harison Ford and Princess Leia” (We had to skip due to the crowds)
– Starwars exhibition ends 05 Jan 2016
– Every Sat 4pm, Stormtroopers will battle rebels (you need to squeeze to the front, easier for kids than adults)
– Avoid peak hours to get decent selfies with X-Wing or TIE fighters
– All Starwars fans must make one journey to Changi Airport
