Annual Pass Extensions Due to COVID-19 Closure

As our attraction was temporarily closed, we have extended Annual Passes (that were valid at the time of closure) to account for the period that our attraction was closed. Existing Passes will be automatically extended in our ticketing system – so your Annual Pass will scan as normal at the admissions desk. 

You do not need to contact our customer service team to get the extra months added, we’ll be taking care of this for you. You are not required to have your Annual Pass cards reprinted. 

Extension FAQs

The decision to temporarily close the attraction is based on the guidance from the Government in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The attraction was closed between 23 March and 13 May 2020 due to COVID-19 lockdown. And was closed again between 12 August and 30 August 2020 due to COVID-19 level 3 alert.

For year 2020, we have extended 2 months for the level 4 lockdown period (April-May); and 1 month for the alert level 3 period (August).

The attraction was closed between 15 February and 17 February 2021; and closed again between 28 February and 06 March 2021 due to COVID-19 level 3 alert restrictions.

For year 2021, we have extended 2 weeks for the February level 3 lockdown period.

If your Annual Pass expired between 14 February and 06 March 2021, you will be able to visit with your existing Annual Passes until 21 March 2021.

No, our team is aware of the extensions, and our system have already updated the new expiry dates.
