Back for its second year, Sentosa Sandsation is the perfect getaway for those who want some sun, sand, and fun. About 100,000 went for the event last year, but expect even more with Marvel as the theme this year. Here are 3 things you should know about Sentosa Sandsation 2018.
- It's much more than just sand sculptures.
At Siloso Beach, you'll see not just a 4.6-metres-tall sand sculpture of Asgard, and Marvel characters like Thor, Medusa, and Captain America. There are also interactive Marvel-themed activities like Hulk Smash (where you and kiddos can test your strength), Freeze Frame Station where you can get the coolest pictures, movies by the beach, and even sand sculpting workshops. For more info on dates and registration, visit Sandsation's website.
- Keep your eyes peeled for the competition.
Last year, 14 sand sculptors from 13 countries around the world participated in the Sentosa International Sand Sculpting Championship, and the winner built the above and took home $6,800. This year's competition will also see 14 scuptors battling it out for the Golden Shovel Award, albeit with the theme also being Marvel.
