We recently visited A Minion's Perspective when we were at Sentosa for a staycation! My ten-year-old had wanted to visit the pop-up attraction at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) after I showed her pictures of it.
I was a hesitating a bit initially because the tickets are a bit pricey at S$100 for a family of four but then I thought, since we weren't going for an overseas holiday this year, so what's with splurging a bit for this staycation? Also, we managed to snag a discount on tickets (read till end to see how!), so why not!
Happy to say we enjoyed the exhibition and it rekindled our interest to watch all the Despicable Me and Minions movies again. So if you have a Minions fan at home, be sure catch the exhibition before it ends on 19 March 2023! Here's our review of A Minion's Perspective at RWS Singapore and 8 things to know!
1) What's at A Minion's Perspective?
There are a total of eight thematic rooms at the 1,400-square-metre exhibition. So expect lots of movie-themed installations you can take pictures with, including Gru's Lab where there's a very impressive Grumobile!
Of course, loads of Minion fun at Gru's Lab too!
I liked The Girl's Room the most which comes with a life-sized Fluffy the Unicorn!
And of course, the girls' cosy room!
There's also a digital colouring wall here where you can do some digital colouring, then send your creation to the screen!
There's also an interactive Fluff wall where you can draw rainbows and try to catch Fluffy!
At the Villians Zone, you'll get to take pictures with the movies' villians and play the El Macho Memory Game. I'm not too good at this but it was fun!
At the Minions Zone, I like this Banana Mania game the most! You compete with each other by throwing balls at falling bananas. I had a good workout for my limbs here!
My girls liked Build a Minion the most! You can play it as a memory game or simply get creative and build your own minion!
And of course, more photo ops with the minions through the ages!
The retail shop at the end of the exhibition is worth a browse too and there are also a few nice photo ops there!
2) Would only Minions fans enjoy this?
Fans of the Despicable Me and Minions movies would appreciate this much more than non-fans. But that said I reckon as long as you have watched the movies and are familiar with the characters, it's good fun for both kids and adults. Your kids might not be really enthusiastic about posing for pics - like my elder daughter who's not really a big fan but is familiar with the movies - but my kids, hubs and I did enjoy the games and the overall immersive experience.
3) What age group is it suitable for?
I think it's suitable for pre-schoolers all the way till adults! My kids (10 and 12 years old) love the games while my husband and I had fun too. It's a very immersive experience!
4) Was it crowded?
We visited on a weekday during the November school holidays and we appear to be the only visitors there, which makes it great for photo-taking and playing the games! I really don't enjoy going for exhibitions where there is a crowd and you feel rushed to take pics and have to queue for games. So if you can, I'd say go on a weekday rather than on a weekend.
5) How much time to budget for it?
We took about an hour to finish the exhibition. On hindsight, I'd have love to stay a bit longer and enjoy the installations and games more. Do note that once you've exited the exhibition into the retail shop, you won't be allowed back in. So please, take your time at the exhibition!
6) How much is it?
Tickets are available from Klook at $30 for adults and $22 for kids 4-12 years old. Those below 4 years can enter for free. A family bundle for 2 adults and 2 kids are available at $100 and that includes a $10 retail voucher which you can use at the gift shop. You can also get 10% off if you pay with GrabPay on Klook by applying promo code <GRABMINION10> and check out with GrabPay!
The tics from Klook are open-dated tics (until 19 March 2023). So after buying your tics at Klook, you'll need to follow Klook's instructions on how to redeem the tics for the date you want to visit. We only redeemed the tics when we were outside the exhibition that day - quite easy and straightforward!
7) Where is it located?
This is located at Resorts World Sentosa. Its entrance is near one of the entrance where the Malaysian Food Street is and where Head Rock VR used to be.
8) Till when?
The exhibition is open from Thursdays to Sundays, 10:00am to 7:00pm.
