For one little island, Sentosa is jam-packed with fun stuff for families.
With thrill rides, play areas, museums, and plenty of hotel and dining options, Sentosa is a stomping ground for kids and adults alike. But the one thing that really makes the State of Fun, fun, is the beach!
Besides building sandcastles, or just rolling around in the sand, there are plenty of unique activities that you can do with the whole family. Here, we suss out some of the best places to have fun in the sun with the whole clan in Sentosa.
Hop on the Skyline Luge Sentosa for a unique go-karting experience, but not before you and the kids take the Skyride chairlift to the top of the Luge track, where a stunning view of Sentosa awaits. Once you’ve reached the top, board your Luge and zoom down 600 metres worth of trails at your own speed.
Do note that children must be at least 85cm tall to be able to ride on the Skyride with an adult, and at least 6 years old and 110cm tall to ride the Luge alone.
Kids who are not tall enough can ride the Luge in tandem with a parent (get a child doubling ticket at just S$3).
If your kids (and you, the parents) are into high-flying adventure, Mega Adventure Park is where it’s at, and it’s all about the MegaZip. Fly like an eagle down a 75m high zip line at up to 60km per hour over the jungle canopy of Imbiah Hill! Make it a family challenge and try the MegaClimb rope course.
For something a little less hair-raising, there’s Nestopia. This unique open-air play space comes with 17 play sections featuring netted obstacle courses connecting three giant nests and two of the longest slides on Sentosa. And it’s not all about the slides, and obstacles.
Throughout the day, there are face painting, balloon twisting, keychain making sessions that you can take part in surrounding shaded wooden tents. Perfect for kids aged 5 and above, this playground is located right next to Trapizza.
There are plenty of pit-stop along Siloso Beach where you can rest your tired legs and fuel up for your next adventure.
Some of our favourite spots include beachside Italian Trapizza, which is known for their wood-fired pizza; Coastes where you can expect classic breakfasts and pub-style classics for weekend brunch, and Ola Beach Club for some Hawaiian-inspired fare. Check out our story about family-friendly restaurants on the island for more inspiration.
Hang out with some feathered and furry friends over at Palawan Amphitheatre. Kids can feed the Lories and meet exotic birds, macaques and scaly lizards at the daily shows. Admission is free.
What better way to wrap a whole day of fun than with lasers, pyrotechnics, giant water jets and a majestic score. Wings of Time takes you on a journey through space and time. Let your kids’ imaginations run wild as they follow the adventures of Rachel and Felix, two children who travel through time with the help of a mythical bird-like creature called Shahbaz. There are two shows ($18-$23) every night, at 7.40pm and 8.40pm.
