If you love spotting otters, then this might be right up your alley. Singapore is getting its first otter-themed escapade, Otah & Friends, that will run at Gardens by the Bay from Dec 15 to Feb 26.

What’s an otter-themed escapade, you ask? It’s a whimsical game of hide-and-seek – with otters.

Visitors will enter a 2,500 sq ft space where you have 45 minutes to search for Otah the otter before the cookies in his oven burn. Explore his colourful home and rummage through the space to look for clues to find the little fella. And once you complete the task, you get lemonade and soft-baked cookies from Instafamous homegrown bakery, Whiskdom, as a reward.

Of course, you will also have plenty of opportunities to capture cute photos for the Gram, as well as a chance to pick up some merch.

Entry costs S$15 per person, or if you come in a group of five, it’ll only cost S$60, with the added benefit of having the whole space to yourself for the allotted time. There’s a minimum of two people to play and children below the age of 12 will need to be accompanied by an adult.

This otter-themed experience comes from El Masnou, the creators of The Bubble Tea Factory, Southeast Asia’s first bubble tea-themed attraction that ran in Singapore in October last year. According to managing director, Tan Weiting, this is the first instalment in a series of otter-themed experiences that the company hopes to present.

Prevailing safe management measures will be followed, such as temperature taking of all staff and visitors and disinfection between each group of visitors. Each time slot will only admit a group of up to five visitors.

Otah & Friends is open daily from Dec 15 to Feb 26, from 9am to 9pm. It’s located at Gardens by the Bay, Bayfront Plaza, 18 Marina Gardens Drive, Singapore 018953, next to Floral Fantasy and Bayfront MRT Station exit B.
