[Attraction Review]- Resorts World Sentosa Adventure Cove Waterpark
This is one long overdue blog post but we reckoned that it would be quite timely to publish this blog entry because its the September School Holidays! So, if you're wondering where's the next place to have a little bit of fun in Singapore, why not check out the Adventure Cove Waterpark at Resorts World Sentosa? A Short Video of Our Day Out @ Adventure Cove Waterpark
Jacqueline and I visited the Resorts World Sentosa Adventure Cove Waterpark sometime ago and we had lots of fun and even had a few close encounters with all kinds of fishes and stingrays too!
Our first stop for the day was Ray Bay and we really want to thank Singapore Polytechnic for giving us a pair of tickets to have a close encounter with stingrays.
The Ray Bay, a place where you can have close encounters with stingrays.
Take a look at those stingrays! In case you're wondering, the stingrays at Adventure Cove Waterpark are perfectly safe and harmless because their barbs have been removed.
As we were the only ones at Ray Bay, we had all the time in the world to feed the stingrays and touch them. If you're worried about the stingrays, the trained instructors are present throughout to allay your fears.
Were there any unpleasant moments with the stingrays? Not really except the fact that some stingrays might gently nibble you to ask for food. But really, the stingrays are really friendly.
Tickets to Ray Bay cost SGD$38 per person and they are subjected to availability because each session can accommodate a maximum of 6 guests. Little ones must be at least 5 years old and at least 107cm in height to participate. If your little ones are under the age of 12, they must be accompanied by a parent/legal guardian and if you are under the age of 21, your parent/legal guardian must complete and sign the liability form.
After the Ray Bay encounter, we went to check out the rest of the remaining rides and attractions. For the little ones, there are play areas like these that are more mild and not so adventurous.
If you're more adventurous, you can probably check out the Tidal Twister, Dueling Racer, and a whole lot of other fun rides!
A crowd pleaser with mild to wild transitions, Tidal Twister sends you careening down an unpredictable passage of swirls and slaloms, delivering maximum fun at maximum speed.
Grab a racer mat and take your friend on a dueling high-speed competitive plunge to the finish line. Clock the fastest time down this steep Dueling Racer and claim victory with the biggest thrill ever.
It’s like riding a water tornado in the dark! Experience dropping through an elevated chute that sends you careening down banked turns, radical twists and dips before splashing out in a pool of water.
Southeast Asia’s first hydro-magnetic coaster, the Riptide Rocket is probably the most exciting and adventurous ride at Adventure Cove Waterpark. Like an intense rollercoaster on water, it combines all the powerful climbs, plunging drops, terrifying twists and tight turns to set your adrenaline pumping.
If you're like me and you like to bummer around, you can either take a nap here...
or you can just laze on a tube and take a leisurely ride down Adventure River, floating through 14 stunning habitats including a lush jungle garden, a mysterious grotto and an underwater tunnel with a sea of marine life swimming above and around you.
Say "hello" to Uncle Ray.
Well, even if you don't purchase tickets to Ray Bay, you can have some not really close encounters with the stingrays from the Adventure River.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to do some snorkelling at the colourful Rainbow Reef where you can enjoy some close encounters with 20,000 friendly fishes! The queue and wait might be long but it is extremely worth it!

After one long day of water fun, we headed to the souvenir shop to get some souvenirs and boy, were they oh so expensive!
Fancy a Pink Dolphin?
Every time we chance upon a "Press A Penny" machine like this, we can't help but to get a coin souvenir to keep as a momento.
Anyway, there are official photographers from Adventure Cove Waterpark whom are present to help you take photographs with their professional cameras and we highly suggest that you take as much photos as you want because you can purchase a disc that contains all the soft copies of the photos inside. Then again, the price can be rather steep and you might probably just want to waterproof your camera and snap all you want without forking out too much.
Here are the prices for the entrance tickets to Adventure Cove Waterpark!

As the food prices at The Bay Restaurant is a tad too expensive and not value for money, we decided to dine at Din Tai Fung which is located outside of Adventure Cove Waterpark but within Resorts World Sentosa.

We'll probably write about Din Tai Fung another day but well, we had a blast at Adventure Cove Waterpark and we will definitely be visiting again!
To go or not to go?
Yes you should, for a day of wet and wild fun in the sun, come and experience it all at Adventure Cove Waterpark!
