Fun, Insta-worthy and Affordable Things To Do With Friends Over the March School Holidays 2018

The March school holidays are only as fun as the things you do and the people you do them with. Of course, it’d be best if your outings include things that contribute to an aesthetic Instagram feed. And yes, they should definitely be within your student budget too.

If you’re having a hard time finding group activities that satisfy all three conditions, we’ve got three suggestions for you.

*Bonus: from 10 to 18 March 2018, all local residents will enjoy Free Island Admission to Sentosa via Sentosa Express or drive-in, so be sure to make full use of this deal!



TrollsTopia at Universal Studios Singapore

What’s fun?

TrollsTopia

From 9 March to 29 April 2018, step into the colourful DreamWorks Animation world of Poppy, Branch and the Trolls. Join forces with your friends at Glitterpalooza as you attempt to catch tickets (that may be exchanged for prizes) flying about in a giant disco-like box filled with confetti. Groove along to hit songs from the Trolls soundtrack in two brand new musical shows, TrollsTopia Show and Hug Time Trio before snapping a photo with Branch and Poppy.

The event is also set to be the first immersive experience of its kind to arrive at Universal Studios Singapore (USS). Put on virtual reality (VR) goggles and indulge in an endless space of rainbows, creativity and imagination as you create 3D visual art with Tilt Brush in VR Troll Art, or ‘bash the beats’ from the catchy Trolls soundtrack in a thrilling VR music video game, VR Beat Feat. If you and your friends would like to become Trolls, you may even Trollify Yourself with face painting, temporary tattoos and Troll wigs.

Together with all your favourite thrill rides at USS, we guarantee that TrollsTopia will be one hair-raising adventure for you and your friends.

What are the Insta-worthy spots/moments?
