Ticketing & Admission

How can we purchase tickets to the attractions?

You may purchase timed tickets to the attractions from the Gardens by the Bay website or the Gardens by the Bay Mobile App (available in Google Play and App Store), which also includes a suite of features that will provide you with a more seamless experience at the Gardens.

For Supertree Observatory, limited tickets can be purchased from a self-service Ticketing kiosk at the attraction entrance.

Why are visitors required to select a time slot when purchasing tickets?

As the capacity of the attractions will be reduced significantly, visitors are required to apply for tickets with time slots for entry to help us stagger entry flow, even out the crowd throughout the day and prevent overcrowding at all times. 

One-hour entry time slots will be available for selection during the ticket purchase. If you arrive anytime within the one-hour time slot, you will be able to enter the attraction immediately, and exit anytime after your entry. 

Do Friends of the Gardens (FOG) members need to select a time slot to visit the attractions?

Yes, FOG members can pre-book their time slot to visit the attractions online or via the Gardens by the Bay Mobile App.

An admission fee applies to Floral Fantasy. You may purchase timed tickets to the attractions from the Gardens by the Bay website or the Gardens by the Bay Mobile App. For Supertree Observatory, limited tickets will be available onsite via the self-service kiosks at the Supertree Observatory entrance.

What if I miss my entry time?

If you arrive outside of your scheduled time slot, you may need to wait for the next available time slot.

I’m unable to visit on the date and time that I had selected earlier. Can I amend my booking?

If for some reason you are unable to visit during the selected day and time slot, you may reschedule here.

• For OCBC Skyway: Admission to OCBC Skyway is subject to weather conditions such as rain or lightning risks. For affected visits, visitors will be ushered to our latest attraction – Supertree Observatory. Alternatively, visitors may change the time slots by 11pm on the date of your scheduled visit, subject to availability.
• For Cloud Forest / Flower Dome / Floral Fantasy: Visitors may change the time slots at least 48 hours before your scheduled visit, subject to availability. 

Why do I need to activate Smart Tracking on the Gardens by the Bay Mobile App if I’m already using TraceTogether app?

Smart Tracking works by using GPS location data and Bluetooth to effectively locate you only within Gardens by the Bay. Visitors are encouraged to download the Gardens by the Bay Mobile App and activate the Smart Tracking function. An advantage of using Smart Tracking is that it helps to map the crowd situation in various parts of the Gardens. As more visitors activate this function, visitors will be able to find out the crowd situation in the enclosed attractions and selected outdoor areas of the Gardens while using the app, thereby enabling visitors to better plan their itineraries at the Gardens.
