For kids 18 months and above, drop them off at the Safari Play Area, which has multi-leveled maze-like jungle gyms. They’ll have fun bouncing around on trampolines, and climbing and sliding from various heights.

No worries about your kids going full throttle as the whole playground is padded for safety.

Younger ones can take it easy by swooshing down gentle spirals. Otherwise, those with a little Indiana Jones in them can be kept entertained by hiking up the Waka Volcano before whizzing down the steep metal slide on the side.

Meanwhile, anklebiters aged between 9 and 18 months can head to the Toddler Area. This zone introduces several sensory play areas, such as ball pits and sandboxes. These are not just fun for your tots to explore, but also beneficial for brain and motor development.

If these two areas aren’t enough play for your offspring, top up $10 on weekdays and $12 on weekends and holidays for the Adventure Cove. This area has a high-elements course designed for brave daredevils aged 4 years and above.

Between navigating a spider web climber and balancing on tires and wooden planks, the little ones are up for an exciting challenge here. Even kiddos who are a little scared of heights can give it a shot, as mum and dad are allowed to accompany them along the way.
