Get your little ones perked up before the school term returns with these fun-filled, hands-on activities.
To paraphrase the famous saying, all work and no play makes for a very dull life! As such, a good break is often needed for you to wind down and bond with your loved ones. If you cannot take time off for too long, why not just take a quick trip and fill a long weekend with family fun by being kids with the kids in Singapore?
For the little ones
Nothing could possibly be cooler than meeting Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman, so why not take the children on Asia’s first ever DC superheroes cable car experience? Featuring themed cabins with augmented reality technology, they will not only be able to snap memorable shots of themselves alongside their favourite superheroes, but also join in a top-secret mission and ‘fly’ across the scenic Singapore skyline!
After their crime-fighting escapade, hop off at Sentosa island for mind-bending moments at the Trick Eye Museum, globally recognised for its amazing 3D exhibits that provide endless photo opportunities. With different themed zones such as the ‘World of Masterpiece’, ‘Safari Kingdom’ and ‘Star of Circus’, challenge each other to take the most creative pictures for memories you can take home with you.
If your kids have boundless energy and find it hard to keep still, a visit to the AMPed Trampoline Park is a must; where they can jump to their hearts’ content on 5,000 square feet of interconnected trampolines and dive into a foam pit – all within a safe and dedicated environment. Adults are even welcomed to join in!
For the really young ones with an adventurous streak, there is also eXplorerkid; which offers a super spacious playing area with slides, ball pits, caves and even a 3-metre high rock-climbing wall. All the activities are said to train their sense of balance and agility while boosting their sense of confidence, so the place is truly a win-win for parents as well.
For the not-so-little ones
It is said that the secret to eternal youth lies in laughter and the ability to never lose your sense of wonder. So, why not enjoy the best of both worlds with an eye-opening trip around Marina Bay on a Segway® tour? Learn about the history and heritage behind the extraordinary landmarks that make up the stunning Singapore cityscape while having lots of fun. As long as you are in the neighbourhood, do also drop by the Tulipmania exhibition at Gardens by the Bay for a truly awe-inspiring display of nature.
If you are looking for a great way to release some pent-up stress, get your adrenaline pumping at LaserOps; a purpose-built, state-of-the-art indoor laser tag arena where you can navigate through a maze, battle with an opposing team or simply hone some shooting skills.
For a more mentally stimulating endeavour that also offers tons of excitement, Xcape Singapore provides you with many options that will put your intelligence and investigative abilities to the test. All you need to do is solve clues to escape from a room within a time limit, but as easy as this sounds, you will have to contend with realistic environments that put you into the plot of some amazing (and at times, terrifying) storylines – from Sherlock-esque mysteries to zombie apocalypses!
Love nature? Then spend a day immersing yourself in a Forest Adventure for an exhilarating outing amidst the trees. At Singapore’s first and only treetop obstacle course, you can push yourself to the limit with zip lines, trapezes and even a big tarzan swing surrounded by the beautiful foliage at Bedok Reservoir Park.
