A new festival has hit town, and things have been blown way out of proportion – but in a good way.

The tiny island of Sentosa is now home to over 800 Gudetama inflatables which have been scattered along Palawan Beach as part of the annual Sentosa FunFest.

And the best part? It won’t cost you a single cent to see them. From March 16 to 24, all Singapore residents will be given free entry to Sentosa if they drive or take the Sentosa Express into the island.

From hundreds of lazy egg yolks to the adorable Hello Kitty, here’s a sneak peek at all the most incredible giant inflatables at Sentosa right now.

In total, there are 899 Gudetama, Hello Kitty and My Melody inflatables. Of these, 889 are Gudetamas lounging all over the beach – including a massive 3m tall one.

The other Gudetama inflatables range from 0.9m to 1.5m tall.

During this media preview, only 60 to 70 per cent of the total inflatables have been set up. The 3m-tall Gudetama will be among those unveiled at the official opening on March 16.

Those looking for more action can play on Sentosa FunFest’s inflatable playground which comprises a total of nine attractions – including mazes, foam pools, gigantic inflatable slides, and, of course, bouncy castles.

For most of these attractions, there is a minimum height requirement of 0.9m for children accompanied by an adult. Those above 1.2m may enter on their own. But you’re advised to bring extra clothes as you might get wet.

No reason not to have fake snow.
