As part of its end of year festivities and to celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Changi Airport in Singapore is displaying two life-sized starfighters in terminals 2 and 3, creating an exciting photo opportunity for departing passengers.

The exhibit will run from November 13, 2015, to January 5, 2016, and will feature an X-wing fighter in Terminal 3 (T3) and a TIE-fighter in Terminal 2 (T2). Passengers will have the chance to don Star Wars costumes and sit behind the cockpit controls of the X-wing for movie-style photo opportunities.

The X-wing fighter experience at T3 will also include special appearances by the Star Wars characters including X-wing fighter pilots and Imperial Stormtroopers. There will also be opportunities to win exclusive Star Wars merchandise.

Behind the LED backdrop of the X-wing display, passengers will find the humanoid protocol droid C-3PO with his own ‘language center’, where he will teach airport visitors popular Star Wars phrases in 10 commonly spoken languages.

Star Wars fans will also find a showcase of Star Wars model displays such as that of the Millennium Falcon and a Star Destroyer. Adults can also participate in an obstacle course featuring the BB-8 app-enabled droid by Sphero, a small duo-spherical robot that will make its big screen debut this December.

Alongside the star wars exhibitions, the year-end celebrations at Changi Airport will also include other fun-filled activities and performances including a bouncy playground, located in T3’s Departure Hall. The Norway-themed playhouse features a 13ft slide, an illuminating ball pit, a ski slope and even a rock climbing lighthouse station.
