Looks to me to be a kiddie type coaster/swinging tram ride. Depending on how strong those leaf things are and how/if they latch onto the bottom, could possibly be so that children could be fully enclosed to ease height restrictions?

All guesses from the pictures taking into account current issues complaints about other kid rides with height problems.

TheThe silver canisters look to be part of the restraint system, and have a speaker in them. As far as the extra hardware up top, it looks as if the whole tram may be lowered, or maybe just fore and aft tilt?

The silver canisters are the headrest for the row in front, and the leg/waist restraints for the row just behind are attached to the rear side. They lower so the speaker is behind the front rider's head and the rear rider's lower half is secured. The green leaves unroll down and buckle at the bottoms, creating a fully enclosed experience.

Too me, it looks as if this would have been a great dark ride:

I've been told that, for some reason, Singapore has weird rules on building indoor attractions. From what I understand, the park has more or less hit its limit on that front, which is why this is an outdoor attraction.

It's also the reason there's not a peep about Potter coming to the park.

Wild, and too bad.

It might be similar to a law we have here in Hong Kong, all new developments in the New Territories are required to meet certain percentages in regards to "outside space". For example, due to these rules my office looks about 90% grass from above, as the company needed to plant gardens and roof gardens to comply.

Puss In Boots inverted family coaster opened in Universal Singapore. There's a few debut pictures on Theme Park Insider. Coaster looks well themed for a coaster.
