The Bubble Tea Factory: A pastel boba wonderland pops up at Orchard in October

Your bubble tea experience is about to blossom into a larger-than-life one when the beloved beverage takes over Orchard for two months. Aptly named The Bubble Tea Factory, this pop-up exhibition is interactive and engaging, and it’s being touted as the first of its kind in Southeast Asia.

Plus, it’s photo-worthy, which should perk up the ears of all you Instagram fanatics. Think sweet pastel shades, neon lights, and boba-themed everything.

Taking up 7,000 sq ft at *Scape, the fantastical showcase houses 10 multi-sensory installations, including highlights such as the Blue Coral Utapioca, where you get to chill under the shade of bubble tea trees, and The Pearl Pit, a purple-hued ball pit that you can dive into.

Other par-tea rooms include features like a giant, Wrecking Ball-inspired pink pearl swing (Miley would be so proud) and the coolest clinic you’ll find, complete with an IV drip filled to the brim with bubble tea for that 100% sugar level boost.

Before you enter the space, you’ll get a Boba Booster Pack containing limited edition collectible cards with easy challenges you can complete for fun. And at the end of your journey, should you find yourself thirs-tea for a drink, there’ll be free cups of bubble tea and boba-inspired snacks waiting for you.


The Bubble Tea Factory is on from Oct 19-Dec 18; weekdays 4pm-10pm, weekends 10am-10pm at *Scape, 2 Orchard Link.
