SINGAPORE: From Jun 10, a new attraction will open at Jewel Changi Airport, with interactive exhibits that give visitors a glimpse into the airport's day-to-day operations behind the scenes. 

Located on level 4, the attraction features interactive exhibits including a runway race, a game to collect airport trolleys, and even a competition for visitors to flash their biggest smiles, said Changi Airport Group, which announced the launch on Thursday (May 30).

One of the interactive elements, called Backstage, brings visitors behind the scenes to show what makes Changi Airport tick and how staff keep the airport running like clockwork. 

Visitors also get to play games inspired by airport check-in processes.

At the game station Arena, visitors get to try their hand at "working" as an airport security officer, a taxi coordinator and a trolley handler.

A multiplayer game called Amazing Runway is based on a race held in 2009 between a Porsche 911 GT3 Carrera Cup car and a Boeing 747 aircraft. 

Ten visitors are split into two teams, one representing the Porsche and the other, the Boeing, as they sprint down the runway.

Another of the highlights is the Garden of Harmony, where visitors get to make music by moving their arms. 

Each visitor plays a different virtual musical instrument, before coming together in symphony with other players. 

The exhibit is a metaphor for the teamwork required of the 50,000-strong airport community, Changi Airport Group says.
