Lockdown Singapore

If you've been using the internet in the last few years, you are bound to have come across news, videos or articles about escape rooms. Lockdown Singapore is a real-life escape game where you and a few others are placed in a locked room. The objective is that you have to collaboratively figure out a way to get out. In each room, you will find various puzzles, some of which are simple while the others, not so much. If you really feel stuck at any point, a helpful staff member might give you a clue. If it's still tough, there's an emergency escape door which comes in handy if you either feel claustrophobic or your time runs out. This is a new and exciting way to spend some quality time having fun with your entire family. Lockdown Singapore can be found at the 'The Central' shopping centre in Clarke Quay.


Boat Quay

No matter if it's a leisurely stroll you're looking for or an eatery with a stunning view, Boat Quay has plenty of each to keep you occupied and satiated.
