3. Otah & Friends are back!


Can't get enough of the otter-ly adorable Otah and his whimsical world? Good news: You can now explore two new realms in the Otter-verse, complete with new characters to play with.

Taking place at Gardens by the Bay’s Supertree Grove, Volume 2: Blast Off will have you racing against time in a mission to find seven secret tools to launch a rocket into space. You'll explore the most colourful (and chaotic) schoolhouse ever as you befriend new character Billy the Hornbill, searching familiar locations like the school library, classrooms and even a school bus. Once you've found all the needed parts, all that's left is to press the big red button and buckle in as the rocket blasts off!

Meanwhile, Volume 3: Grocery Run is located within Suntec City’s North Wing. Otah and his BFF Luckee the Boar need your help finding the freshest and tastiest produce at Chongkee Supermarket for Otah's tea party. Race against the clock to embark on a hunt for ingredients hidden among mouth-watering displays of seafood, cheese, fruits and bread, then scan the items you've collected at the checkout counter once you're done and see if you've picked the right items. After that, enjoy the fruits of your labour at Otah's garden party with him and his friends.

Feeling nostalgic for the original Otah experience? Fret not, Volume 1: Playdate is still open to visitors at SAFRA Punggol’s Atrium.
