Looking for an activity that can keep your children engaged and entertained while teaching them important values and lessons through storytelling? Then you have to bring your family to 22 Stories.
Occupying a 20,000 square foot hall are 22 uniquely designed rooms with beautiful art installations to create the first ever immersive, interactive, theatrical, multi-room experience in South-East Asia.
Held from 1 May to 30 June 2019 (Friday – Sunday and public holidays) at People Up @ Pandan, 22 Stories transports you to four magical lands. At Grimmsneyland, Land of Nights, Wonderland and Storyland, you’ll meet 22 characters from your favourite fairy tales. Listen to stories of fantasy and folklore, and participate in fun-filled activities for the young at heart.
There are 5 to 6 interconnected rooms in each magical land to explore with absolutely no specific way to go about. Simply follow where your heart takes you next. Just take note of the showtimes to meet the characters in the rooms. And make sure you stay till the end for a mini march out parade where you will meet all the characters from the four lands.
Follow the illuminated pebble path through the enchanted forest. Here meet the Witch who lives in the candy house and find out what happens to children who take without asking. Greet the Emperor in his new clothes, then help Mama Swan find her little duckling and slide down the beanstalk before the giant wakes up!
Land of Nights
Earn your right to enter the Cave of Treasure and claim your gold from one of the forty thieves. Meet charming Aladdin at the Thieves Market. At the beautiful palace courtyard, learn the ways of courtly etiquette from Princess Jasmine. And before you go, hop onto the magical carpet to discover a shining, shimmering world from above.
Find out about Alice’s favourite stories, then follow her down the rabbit hole to have tea with the Mad Hatter. Meet the Queen and the Cheshire Cat in a roomful of fur to discover the power of compliments. And if you are game for a round of croquet, take a swing with a flamingo mallet and win yourself a sweet treat!
Learn the Waltz from Cinderella and take a ride on her pumpkin carriage, compliments of the Fairy Godmother. Make a wish in the Wishing Forest and always know that with a good heart and hard work, anything is possible. Finally, if you are brave enough, take a dip under the ocean and help Little Mermaid find her way home.
Different characters will be appearing each week, depending on whether it’s an odd or even week. So, if you did not manage to get a photograph with Cinderella this weekend, come again next week to meet her.
After all the treasure hunting and adventure, you can fill up your tummies at the Wonder Food Land. Prepared by official F&B partner, farm appetit, you can enjoy wholesome meals such as organic fried rice, salmon with vegetables, egg/tuna mayo sandwiches.
