Missed the Pokemon Go Safari Zone in Sentosa in April?

Here’s your second chance: the island is now hosting a Pokemon Carnival from June 15 to June 30 – and you don’t need a Pokemon Go account to take part.

The carnival will open from 5pm to 9pm daily. Entry is free, but in order to win prizes, visitors must first spend money at a shop, attraction, hotel or eatery in Sentosa.

Here’s what to expect at the event:


A Pokemon-themed carnival is taking place at Sentosa Cove Village from June 15 to 30.

Unlike the previous Pokemon event, the Safari Zone, you do not need a Pokemon Go account to take part.
