Family Fun at Adventure Cove

[ Sponsored ]

Before the end of school holidays, we visited Adventure Cove Waterpark. It was a good opportunity for us to refresh our snorkeling skills too, post Tioman.

Adventure Cove always hold us a special spot in our hearts. There are so many corners to explore, so many slides to test our adventurous spirit.

Lazy river offers some interesting views along the way too, dolphins, stingrays, do pop by our previous review (link).

We have captured most of the Fun in our video (below).

The only thing which has changed is kids are no longer clamouring to go the the Big Bucket Treehouse. Too childish, they said 🙂

We were fortunate that there were fewer visitors around Adventure Cove. Perhaps the overcast sky was a dampener for some?

 

It means we got more time to enjoy the slides, and shorter queues. YES!

Riptide Rocket was my best ride, up down and twists. As I am 1.81m, a few of the upswings always make me duck lower in order not to hit the roof (I am paranoid haha).

Bluwater Bay is always a favourite with families. We spotted a 4-legged VIP too, and pool was closed till the monitor lizard was caught.

Pretty Sentosa has wildlife around every corner 🙂

 

Catch the waves in our video. Younger kids should wear their life jackets as they will be bounced left-right and up-down!

The highlight for our family is always Rainbow Reef. Kids are now comfortable with snorkel kits in the large lagoon.

Adventure Cove Waterpark Rainbow Reef

There are some 20,000 fishes swimming around and some of them are huge! All are friendly to humans 🙂

Swimmers cannot remove your life jackets to dive down, but feel free to bring your underwater cameras and video along.

This might be the kids’ first snorkeling adventure, minimum height of 107cm applies. If possible, please ensure kids have experience with snorkeling beforehand (mask and breathing through mouth). Otherwise they will struggle with the mask and might not enjoy the experience. The queue can be 30 to 60minutes, followed by 10 to 15 minutes orientation.

For those with deeper pockets, you may with to try to pad the dolphins and perhaps get up close to some friendly rays or sharks.

Adventure Cove’s Rainbow Reef always provide a magical and surreal experience for us (even though it is man-made).

Do checkout our Fun Water Adventures on Youtube (link). So much fishes swimming around, and you will spot some stingrays up close at the tunnel too.

Lastly, the most relaxing float around Adventure Cove, Adventure River.

Grab a tube or simply swim along the channel and let the current sweep you along. Who can resist Water Fun 🙂

Do pop by the corner at “Splashworks” too. Besides jumping from the edge, kids can play rounds of obstacles too (just like Ninja Warrior).

Additional Tips :

-Most of the rides require kids to be above 107 or 122cm, do confirm at RWS  website

Option B, drop the family at RWS, then drive into Sentosa to park. 4 hour might cost you less than $12 ($6 entry and hourly $1.20). Take the Monorail back to Waterfront Station. (Alternatively park at Vivocity and take the monorail across, or walk 2km)

We would like to thanks Sentosa Development Corporation and Resorts World Sentosa for the fun invite. We had so much fun reconnecting with Adventure Cove again. Do visit our previous Adventure Cove Waterpark experience.

I loved this family photo as it captures our FUN snorkeling experience very well. Thumbs up!

Jurassic World at USS – dinosaurs run wild

[ Media Invite ]

In conjunction with Jurassic World movie, Universal Studios Singapore (USS) is letting the dinosaurs loose till 22 Aug 2018.

 

There are many photo opportunities for families, especially kids who are dino fans.

 

Visitors eagerly awaiting the appearance of the star performers. We see cages and walls and we instantly expect dinosaurs to tear them down.

Jurassic World: Roar!

Timings (daily 1300,1600 & 1830, extra performance 2100 on Fri and Sat)

This is the headline performance for Jurassic World.

The trainer asking for volunteers to feed the raptors.

We witnessed a child accidentally press wrong RED button. The rest is history.

Raptors, Pteranodons rampaged out of control. Everyone on stage ran away, who can contain the dinosaurs?

 

Just when we thought situation could not get worse, guess who made a grand appearance!

Although this Trex is still a juvenile, it took a fair bit of effort to control it. Not sure whether the “Taser” treatment works.

I do know dino fans will be busy clicking their cameras.

The Trex is tamed and ready for wefie 🙂
The dinosaurs’ entry are a treat for Dino fans, quite impressive and realistic.

Next up, we headed to “Raptor Training School”

Timings (Sun to Thu-1200,1400,1615 and 1800. Fri & Sat-1200,1400,1630 and 1900, Sat extra 1130 and 1930)

 

Instructor told trainees that you just need clicker and hand signal to handle Ferocious raptor docile.

After 5 minutes orientation, kids were ready to face down a hungry raptor!

 

I might not be as courageous as the kids if I encounter a real Jurassic raptor.

Anyway, just remember to maintain eye contact with the raptor, do not be scared of the 20cm dagger-like claws.

The trainers got younger and younger (Too cute with the safari jacket).

Raptor might find them too adorable to snack.

Friendly reminder, if you are standing outside  the “ring”, do not anyhow wave and attract the raptor’s attention.

Raptors are wild animals and must be treated with respect!

Last station : Jurassic Encounter (AR)

All day, first come first serve.

 

 

 

This was our favourite segment. Imagine a King-size Augment Reality experience at “New York Public Library”.

Immersive experience, dinosaurs big and small surrounded us, avoid the stampede, pat the triceratops. We felt like we were in the middle of Jurassic World production 🙂

Video AR from our Instagram. Do not let the Trex chomp you down, or become roti prata under the brontosaurus!

 

Special dino brunch for guests at KT Grill, Trex steak anyone?

We ended our tour at USS with Spaghetti and Transformer 🙂

Do book your tickets online to avoid disappointment, USS is always packed during school holidays.

Thank you RWS (Resorts World Sentosa) for the invitation, do follow them at Website and Facebook for the latest updates.
