It also features climbing nets and fireman poles that allow users to slide down at 2-metre intervals. 

It was built using 10km of rope, supported by about 15 tonnes of steel. 

The playground is anchored to the ceiling and the ground, and can admit up to 50 people at a time. 

There is no fee to use the playground and it will be open 24 hours for passengers

Changi Airport Group added that Chandelier is by far the airport’s “largest art installation”.

The playground will be opened to travellers in “a few weeks' time”, the airport said.
