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.

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

Map of Adventure Cove
-Ticket prices are adult $32 and child $24

-Do book online for more Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) bundle promotions and avoid the queue

-Parking in RWS can be expensive, $20 for 4 hours. Or you may consider parking in Sentosa itself. 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)

– Adventure Cove opens from 10am to 6pm, do maximise your Fun (take note in the event of lighting and pool closure, no tickets refund)

-Locker fees start from $10 (Small) to $20 (large)


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!

National Geographic’s Ocean Wonders at S.E.A Aquarium

[ We are running a Tickets Giveaway till 30Mar 2018, Facebook link ]

No more shark fin’s soup. Our family pledged that sharks should be admired in their natural environment, and not served up in bowls!

I visited S.E.A Aquarium with Boon Xin recently, and it was another opportunity to explore Marine conservation with the kids.

Hey President Trump, even my 9 years old girl knows about the impact brought by climate change. Pollution, excess harvesting are destroying our ecosystem and depleting the fish stocks.

Many animals will disappear from the wild in this generation. Not extinct yet, but it means the only place to see a tiger or whale shark might be in zoo or aquarium! So Sad.

From now till 20 May, Resorts World Sentosa is hosting the first ever National Geographic Ocean Wonders event featuring the Ocean Record Breakers exhibition, Marine Photography Adventure and the National Geographic Ocean Exploration Children’s Workshop.

The Maritime Experiential Museum™ is reopen after an extensive revamp.

We followed some of the pioneer explorers and visited ancient Singapore. When Singapore was still a fishing village, the time before Sang Nila Utama, when merchants (and pirates too) used to ply the sea around Singapore.

The pioneer explorers

Braving treacherous sea conditions, ships were the only means of transport for goods and human.  We could traced how spices were transferred from Asia to Europe, or Gold from Middle east to Asia. Cultures were exported via sea route too.

Trade, barter, economics, livelihood. Where the ships go, ports flourished and cities bloomed. This was the Maritime Silk Route.

Our girl understood more about the adventures and perils of an adventurer, and we had fun with the workshops.


Muscat was berthed outside last time, this boat was constructed with old workmanship and sailed all the way from Oman. Sailors used traditional navigational aids, no GPS or satellite back then 🙂

Photo below, can you guess where is the Head (aka loo)?


Left Muscat, and right Chinese Junk

Our junior explorers pickup some life skills in the workshop. We need to understand North East South West before we can start navigating.

Seamanship requires us to be resourceful and adaptable. The Ocean is a harsh environment and rope skills secured our goods and ourselves.


Kids had an opportunity to craft their own yacht, or sampan. Just make sure your boat can float 🙂

With all the skills they pick up, we were ready to explore the Marine Silk Road on a Chinese Junk. However, we did not expect Typhoon to be so devastating!

The 4D experience was supposed to allow us to follow China’s emissary to somewhere in the Middle East… (fast forward) the crew encountered a Typhoon and our Chinese Junk became a wreck.

In another corner, we noticed “Noah’s Ark”  (the huge wall of giraffe, elephants etc) has been transformed into a pirate cove.

The second part of our exploration was the exploration of S.E.A. Aquarium. The highlight was S.E.A Aquarium’s newest resident, the sand tiger shark.

Kids are invited to go on a photography adventure and take part in an Ocean conservation mission.

Boon Xin is looking out for her Sand Tiger Shark.

Mr Bala told us Sand Tiger Sharks are harmless to humans, but the rows of menacing teeth told us otherwise :p

Save our Oceans! Protect the Marine Animals.

Beautiful corals. I shared with Xin that Great Barrier Reef (Queensland Australia) is the largest living structure, and the only one which can be spotted from Space! Unfortunately, coral bleaching is threatening to wipe out the reefs, and a vast habitat for organisms 🙁



Chocolate Chip Sea star 🙂

I hope the kids will have a better appreciation of our ecosystem, and we can all play a part to conserve our Ocean.

No more Shark Fins! Sharks are more graceful when they swim, not in a bowl.

Some of the featured animals (and experiments) from National Geographic and S.E.A Aquarium.

How can the cute colourful frogs be poisonous?

I shared with the girl that Nature has a unique way to shout “Don’t eat me!”. Leave the most colourful and brightest animals alone.


We need to talk about Recycling in the same wave as Conservation, they goes hand in hand.  We are dumping too much plastics and by-products into the ocean. All these rubbish follow the currents and end up somewhere.

Marine animals which mistake plastic for food choke their stomachs and die a miserable (and suffocating) death.

Ocean Record Breakers exhibition, the name is self-explanatory.

We saw some of the monsters, and all are still living in our oceans. I would recommend the kids to stay clear of the Giant squids. They are sperm whales’ favourite snacks, and not the delicious version we see skewed at Old Chang Kee.

Wow, 18m squid is longer than our 11m buses!

I hope future generation will have an opportunity to see the majestic Orcas, Mola (sunfish) and whale sharks in the wild, not in aquariums.

The other fishes in S.E.A Aquarium does look cuter. But I told Xin puffer fish are actually voracious hunter, they will tear their preys apart!
So much for fugu.  

You can take part in a photo contest too, simply submit one of the featured animals in S.E.A Aquarium to Instagram (public profile). Tag @rwsentosa and #rwsoceanwonders And you might be one of the lucky winners every month 🙂

I showed the kids additional videos on how we humans are damaging the Ocean.
-Trawler and dredging basically scoops everything  off the seafloor, there  must be a more sustainable way of harvesting.
-Plastic Ocean!

Thank you for the education experience, S.E.A Aquarium, I hope my kids will appreciate Mother Earth’s fragile ecosystem more.  I hope they play a part to conserve our  ecosystem and marine habitat for future generations.
