Sorry cant recall but cost a couple of bucks per head. To me, it's worth it. Best to go near evening time, to coincide with the light up at night.

@fightingMom - kids learn about eco systems too. How our Earth is dealing with polar-cap's ice melting, global warming etc.

Buggy is $5 per head.
I suspect F&B is above food court price, so picnice might not be a bad idea.

End the day with a dip at MArina Barrage :)

Beautiful pictures! What are the fees like and what are the charges for car park?

The whole compound is covered isn't it, so we could go as and when regardless rain or shine?

Marina barrage is located next to garden by the bay.
