SINGAPORE: Discounted admission tickets, commemorative items and a “glamping” experience with penguins were among promotions and activities unveiled on Wednesday (Nov 15) as Bird Paradise marked its grand opening. 

The milestone event was officiated by Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Lawrence Wong, who was joined by about 1,000 guests. 

“Bird Paradise will pay homage to the legacy of Jurong Bird Park, but it will take it to a brand-new level,” he said.

Since its soft opening on May 8, the new park has welcomed more than 600,000 local and international visitors. 

Singapore residents thinking of visiting the attraction from Nov 15 to Dec 17 will be able to take advantage of the park’s 30 per cent discount, applicable to every pair of tickets of the same type. 

The discount is valid for adult and children tickets and is only available to WildPass holders, Mandai Wildlife Reserve’s free digital programme.

Full-priced tickets usually cost S$48 (US$36) for adults and S$33 for children.
