The one kilometer-long trail will allow guests to explore Singapore Zoo at night when the animals are asleep.

Touted as a mesmerising multimedia experience, the night walk consists of 11 zones.

Inside, the four integral zones include:

 Sing Like an Animal demonstrates how the earth plays music for those that will listen. Along with the Creature Crew, guests use their whispers and songs to help the luminous forest flourish.

 Call of the Wild wows with an astounding visual narrative of how the Creature Crew bands together in times of adversity to overcome all challenges.

 Play Like an Animal has embraces the mischievous and playful nature of the Creature Crew and encourages guests to join in their fun!

 Wall of Fame captures the essence of the motto for Rainforest Lumina – “We are One”. Expect to leave with a photo memory with your Creature Crew friend at the end of the experience!


The Creature Crew, a quirky group of unlikely heroes, including Orangutan, Flying Fox, Sloth, Chameleon, Asian small-clawed otter, Pangolin, Hornbill, and Tiger cub, will accompany guests on the tour.

The event is a collaboration between Wildlife Reserves Singapore and Moment Factory.
