I refer to Friday's letter, 'Zoo, Night Safari, lower your charges', by Mr Kamar Lim regarding the main animal show and admission charges.
Singapore Zoo and Night Safari thank Mr Lim for his feedback.
The Wonders Of The Wild Show at the Singapore Zoo is temporarily closed for renovation. However, we have other shows available for guests. These include the Elephants At Work And Play and our latest Splash Safari, two favourites with visitors.
In addition, token feeding sessions with live commentary are held at various animal habitats throughout the day. Some of these sessions allow visitors to interact with the animals, such as the manatees and kangaroos.
The official opening time of the Night Safari is 7.30pm. Our restaurants and retail outlets are open from 6pm, 11/2 hours earlier, for guests to relax and chat with family and friends at the park's restaurants and bar.
The Creatures Of The Night Show has been a big draw with visitors, which may explain why the queue is long. This show is on at 7.30pm, 8.30pm and 9.30pm daily, and on Saturdays and public holidays, we have added another time slot at 10.30pm.
As for the laksa served in Ulu Ulu, it is a large serving with fresh large prawns and other quality ingredients for those with a hefty appetite.
We regret that Mr Lim did not purchase the two-in-one Park Hopper package for two parks, valued at $30 without tram rides. The two-in-one Park Hopper package and tram rides to the two parks would have saved Mr Lim and his friends $9 per person.
To make trips to the parks more affordable, we have also recently introduced our three-in-one Park Hopper package for visitors, where they will enjoy savings of $16.50. The three-in-one Park Hopper, valued at $40, allows one-time admission for visitors to each park - Jurong BirdPark, Night Safari and Singapore Zoo, and is valid for one month from the date of purchase.
Mr Lim should feel free to contact us should he have further queries. He may also visit our websites, www.zoo.com.sg , www.nightsafari.com.sg or www.birdpark.com.sg
