As soon as you step into the park, you'll be greeted by a beautiful 10-metre tall waterfall that was designed after the Madakaripura waterfall in Indonesia, in honour of the tropical rainforests in the region! Take the scenic path to the top of the waterfall beneath the curtain of flowing water where you can enjoy the cool mist before reaching the upper deck which houses the playgrounds and F&B options ?

Once you’re in, you can see a variety of the most endangered species in the world, including Black-winged Mynas and Straw-headed Bulbuls! Not only that but you can also watch the biggest population of hornbills under human care in the world, many of which are flying freely in some of the eight huge walk-through aviaries that are designed after various habitats from around the world ?

For those who love watching those thrilling bird shows, there will be two new bird performances - Predators on Wings and Wings of the World - that will take flight at Sky Amphitheatre ? The performances will follow a new format and content while also keeping some of the most beloved components from the prior Kings of the Skies and High Flyers events at Jurong Bird Park! How exciting is that?!
