Imagine Charlie's amazing candy wonderland, but on a much, much, much smaller scale. That's Universal Studios Singapore's newest treat, a special — and happily, air-conditioned — attraction, where kids and kidults with a sweet tooth can indulge in candy, and more importantly, candy-coloured selfies.
Unfortunately, the giant lollies, cake pops and marshmallows in Lollipop Land are not for munching on, but you can stuff your face at the Fondue Garden, where you'll be handed marshmallows to dip into towers of runny chocolate (pandan fondue, anyone?). Yum. Photos ops are aplenty at the Cocoa Hedge Maze (very Alice in Wonderland, but only kids will find this a challenge) and you can jostle for wefies with delicious characters such as Candice Cupcake (a sexy human cupcake, ooh-la-la), Mama Cookie and everyone's favourite choc chip addict, Cookie Monster. Every hour from 1-4pm daily, you get to decorate cupcakes and cookies at the Chocolate Garden, and of course, eat them. If you're feeling craftsy, you can also make and decorate lollipops (paper; alas not edible). No chocolate river, oompa loompas or magic chewing gum here, but it's a sugary trip nonetheless.
Chocolate Adventure runs till May 28 at Universal Studios Singapore, and is included as part of regular paid admission to the theme park.
