8 Fun Activities Every Family Should Try

By Kristel Oh

 

Time is of essence in this busy city & family time is becoming scarce. So why not kill two birds with one stone & keep fit while you bond with your family. Instead of taking your family to the movies or the mall, show them how fun life can be in the sun! 

 

Here are 8 activities we've specially pick just for you & your families. PS: We hope you like it :)

 

1) Spend the day Ziplining your way across Sentosa

Perched atop Imbiah Hill on Sentosa Island, Megazip features the most extreme zip wires in Asia. Cruise 72 meters above sea level through the jungles and high above the beach dwellers in this adrenaline fuelled adventure. This is probably one of the few activities that takes you into a whole different world away from the bustling city albeit for only a few minutes, plus the kids would love it.

Prices start from $39/pax (Don't forget our Premier Card members get a special discount :) )

Address

Megazip, Imbiah Hill Road, Sentosa, Singapore 098967

 

 

2) Try your hands at Soccer-Golf & you might just kick your way into a hole in one

50% Soccer + 50% Golf = 100% fun. Don't worry, you don't have to be Fandi Ahmad or Tiger Woods to navigate this course. With a little patience & support, anyone can be a star here. Located in Punggol Ranch, this 18 hole course will ensure you have lots of fun and laughter. Recommended for all ages or rather as long as they can kick a ball

Prices at $35/pax

Address

Soccer Golf @ Punggol Ranch, 900 Punggol Road (end) - Track 24, Singapore 829168

 

 

3) Spend the day with nature & your family hiking Bukit Timah Hill

With buildings shooting up all over Singapore, we are losing nature at a rapid rate. Spend the day exploring trails at Singapore's tallest hill and enjoy the peace and serenity it brings. You know what's the best part of the activity? It's absolutely FREE. (We do suggest you take them for ice cream later to reward them for their efforts)

Address

Bukit Timah Hill, Hindhede Drive, Singapore 589318

 
 
 

4) Escape the hot sun & take everyone Ice Skating @ The Rink

If you think the sun is too much to handle or your day's activity is being ruined thanks to the rain, head to Singapore's newest rink & spend the day skating around in circles with your family & laugh at everyone's very professional skating skills. 

Prices start from $21.50 & includes admission & rental of skate boots, gloves & socks

Address

The Rink @ JCube, 2 Jurong East Central 1, Level 3, Jcube, Singapore 609731 

 

 

 

5) Run, Bounce & Push each other silly in a game of Bubble Football.

A great family activity & workout especially if your family is a big one. Try out a variety of games while stuck in a bubble. it's completely safe for all as well as the bubble will protect you from everything.

Prices start from $25 a person & is available at any open spaces or futsal pitches in Singapore. A couple of providers that come to mind are SingaSports, Bubble Bump & Wow Experience.

 

Moving on to the sea... or rather manmade ponds & pools
 

6) Go Cable-Skiing/ Wakeboarding at Singapore's First & Only Cable-Ski Park

If you like the water (only if everyone's above 7 and 1.2 meters), check out Ski 360 at East Coast Park. This is one of the only places you get to enjoy this exhilarating activity in a safe and family-friendly environment. Spend the day wakeboarding with the kids or the other half here & we promise you won't regret. After the day's activities, we recommend you visit the nearby East Coast Lagoon Food Village to fill your tummy.

Prices start from $38/pax...

Address

1206A East Coast Parkway, Singapore 449891

 

 

7) Head to Sentosa to ride the waves at WaveHouse

If cable-skiing is not your thing & you prefer riding the waves or if your kid lies between 107cm & 120cm (because the height requirement is lower and there's no minimum age), check out Wavehouse at Sentosa.  It's one of the only places you'll get to pretend your riding the real waves. Whether you are looking to ride like a pro (try the flowbarrel) or just to try something new and exciting (the flowrider), theres something for everyone!

Prices start from $35/pax...

Address

36 Siloso Beach Walk, 099007

 

 

8) Kayak with your family into the deep blue ocean

If riding the waves & hanging on to the cables are not your thing, then kayaking might just be for you, PLUS its cheaper too! Suitable for all ages, you do not need to be an experienced paddler or athlete to enjoy the water. If the kids still have too much energy in them after the session, you can always let them try another water sport. *Hints* Standup Paddle is pretty cool too!

Prices start from $25/person (Don't forget our Premier Card members get a special discount :) )

Address

1212 East Coast Parkway, Singapore 449886

 

Show your family the finer things in life apart from the movies & get their butts out in the sun today!
