Canopy Park is situated at the top-level of the Jewel. It features the Mirror Maze and Hedge Maze designed by British designer Adrian Fisher.

The mazes cover an area of 500m² combined and feature look-out platforms.

Additional features in the park include the 250m-long and three-storey high suspended Manulife Sky Nets, an art sculpture, viewing gallery, a playscape called the Discovery Slides, and The Canopy Bridge.

The park also consists of space for communal events called Cloud9 Piazza, and eight food and beverage outlets including Burger & Lobster and Tiger Street Lab.

Changi Experience Studio located on level four of Jewel is an aviation-themed attraction and offers digital experiences to visitors.

The studio features a Travel Guide featuring an infrared and radio technology.

The technology is designed to guide children and adults through interactive games, shows, projection storytelling and gallery exhibits relating to Changi Airport’s history and its operations.

Jewel Changi Airport Development chief executive officer Hung Jean said: “We’ve been delighted and overwhelmed by the positive response from travellers and Singaporeans alike since Jewel Changi Airport’s initial opening in April.

“Jewel has already made a big impression, so we’re thrilled future visitors to Changi Airport can now also try out some, or all, of the exciting activities and attractions that both the Canopy Park and Changi Experience Studio have to offer.”
