Escape the River Safari Lockdown

23 Oct 2018

River Safari has been taken over by fearsome creatures, both big and small. 

Joining forces with Lockdown Singapore—Singapore’s leading Escape Game
provider—River Safari is turning into a giant board game ruled by these
fearsome river creatures; brave adventurers must save themselves, and
they win a Pin of Honour when the quest is completed.

Take up the challenge, roll thedice, and let the game begin this holiday season in River Safari with Lockdown Singapore.



Designed for the family, adventurers can form groups of up to six participants to solve puzzles to escape. Pick up interesting information about these fearsome river creatures—such as the Green Anaconda and Tiger Fish—along the way! If that does not satiate your thirst for knowledge, sail along the river banks and discover fun and fascinating facts during our feeding sessions for the Giant River Otter, Red-bellied Piranha and Electric Eel.

Get privileged behind-the-scenes access with River Safari’s new tours too! Opt for the Amazing Amazonia tour to feed and learn more about piranhas, eels and stingrays, and discard your fears about these often misunderstood unique river creatures. Alternatively, go up close and personal with the manatees in the Manatee Mania tour to feed them their favourite vegetables and participate in their target training. Try to spot River Safari’s animal icon, Canola the manatee too!

Grab a snake-themed donut or bread to recharge before you continue the adventure to escape from the fearsome creatures! Do also remember to snap a photo with Canola our manatee mascot, and take home a huggable plushie!
