1. Gardens by the Bay

You’ve probably been to Gardens by the Bay before, but there’s always a reason to go back again. Right now, for example, you can visit the Bayfront Pop-up Market for free, which showcases a wide variety of unique wares, artisanal products and knick-knacks. As Singapore’s #1 attraction on TripAdvisor, Gardens by the Bay has reached more than 50 million visitors to date, and that number is only going to continue to grow. In fact, it’s one of the top 20 most checked-in places in the world on Facebook, attracting tourists from all around the world.

So what can you do with your kids and your family at Gardens by the Bay? Other than, of course, taking lots and lots of pictures in the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. To truly put your phones away, bring your kids to Far East Organization Children’s Garden. Featuring interactive play delights, water play features and educational programmes, this play area is perfect for kids aged 1-12 years old. Remember to bring a swimsuit for your children! If they need an energy boost, head over to the Children’s Garden Cafe nearby to enjoy bento meals and light snacks for both you and your kids.

With three different courses depending on how adventurous you are feeling today, Forest Adventure promises you an unforgettable outdoor adventure packed with laughter, adrenaline-pumping action and personal achievements.

If you are taller than 1.45m, try the Grand Course. This course is 2.5hrs of exhilarating fun on the treetops, 44 adrenaline pumping obstacles including 3 giant zip lines. But if you’re not quite up for that yet, there’s always the Junior Course, which has 26 obstacles and includes one of the stunning zip lines over water to train you. So next time you come back, you’ll definitely be ready for the Grand Course. For the little ones aged 5-9 years old, the Kids Course includes 22 crossings and two awesome zip lines. And lastly, if you just love zip lines, the Big Zip is a 300m zip entirely over the water that you definitely will not forget!

AIRZONE is a playground like no other. With distinct themed zones containing unique games, AIRZONE is Singapore’s first ever suspended net playground. At first glance, you may wonder if this is safe for your kids, but fear not – it is 100% SAFE. AIRZONE complies to industry standards and amusement ride safety regulations for the design, operation and maintenance of all their activities.

What exactly can you do at AIRZONE then? Start by simply walking around on the nets. The sensation is described by many as “a combination of walking on the moon and on water” and “a strange mixture of sinking and bouncing”. Sounds intriguing, right? It gets even better. There’s also a 3D maze that you can explore or you can try climbing all the way to the 6th floor to be rewarded with a big slide! And don’t be afraid to fall – these nets are designed to catch falling gymnasts.

We’ve all been to Universal Studios Singapore countless of times, but did you know that Adventure Cove is equally as fun too? We complain about the heat all the time, so here’s the solution. Adventure Cove is where you and your family can take high-speed water slides, laze the day away drifting on a lazy river, snorkel with tropical fish over a colourful reef, wade among rays and even come face to face with sharks!

Try one of the six exhilarating waterslides, including Southeast Asia’s first ever hydro-magnetic coaster, the Riptide Rocket. For the thrill seekers, head to Splashworks, where you can walk the balance beam, cross the tight rope, climb the cargo net, and leap without fear off the platform cliff jump. Or simply relax in Bluwater Bay, a wave pool, or float along the Adventure River. Love interacting with marine life? You’ll find dozens of rays at Ray Bay and over 20,000 fish at Rainbow Reef.

Once is never enough. Want to enjoy the feeling of being in control but don’t know how to drive yet? Have no fear, the Skyline Luge is here! You’ll want to go up and down this attraction again and again the moment you try it. It’s hosted over 45 million riders worldwide since its invention over 33 years ago. A fun-filled activity suitable for all ages, the Luge involves a gravity-fuelled ride that provides riders full control over their descent on purpose-built tracks.

If you’ve taken the Luge before, you may be familiar with the challenging Dragon trail or the winding Jungle trail. But did you know there are two brand new Luge tracks? Kupu Kupu (638m) and Expedition (658m) twist and turn through the mystical forest. Enjoy 2.6 kilometres of fun with your loved ones and feel the cool wind in your hair as you zoom down the tracks. After the adrenaline rush from the Luge, hop onto the Skyride, where you can enjoy a scenic adventure on a 4-seater chairlift that gives you a bird’s eye view of the Singapore skyline and the South China Sea while engrossed in the natural habitat of Sentosa Island.
