Adventure Cove Waterpark is a water park on Sentosa, and is under the Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) umbrella, together with Universal Studios Singapore (USS) and S.E.A Aquarium. From Vivo City, you can either take the Sentosa Express (a monorail) from the 3rd floor, or walk in via the Sentosa Boardwalk. It costs $4 to take the Sentosa Express, while walking in via the Boardwalk is free till 31st Dec 2015! Alternative modes of transportation can be found here.
Embarking on the Boardwalk.
View from the Boardwalk.
It’s quite pleasant to walk in via the Boardwalk, and it’s actually sheltered all the way! 🙂 So it doesn’t really matter if it’s rain or shine hahaha.
Arriving at the Sentosa side of the Boardwalk! You can purchase attraction tickets at the counter here if you haven’t already done so before. 🙂
Looking back at the Boardwalk from Sentosa!
Adventure Cove is not prominently located compared to USS, and is sort of ‘hidden’ behind the S.E.A Aquarium. Just walk toward the S.E.A Aquarium, and when facing it, keep walking along the right side. You will pass by a RWS Invites booth (as seen in the pic above) on the way Adventure Cove.
Yay! We have arrived at Adventure Cove! Walking over from Vivo City doesn’t take very long, and we were at the entrance of Adventure Cove within 20min or less. Check here for a list of prohibited items and guidelines on permitted dress code for entry into the waterpark.
You can rent lockers to store your belongings, and the lockers in the pic above are the smaller-sized ones. There are 2 types of lockers available; the small and the large. The small lockers cost S$10, while the large ones cost S$20. Both are non-refundable, and are valid for full-day use. You will be prompted each time you open the lockers to choose whether you want to 1) continue with the rental, or 2) end the rental. So if you’re just taking some stuff out and want to continue using the lockers, please remember to choose the correct option. :p
There are 6 water slides, and I enjoyed the Dueling Racer and Tidal Twister the most. The others are quite mild in comparison, and don’t provide much thrills, at least for those looking for thrills haha. There is also an obstacle course built over water (Splashworks), and if you’d like, you can even imagine that you’re on Ninja Warrior as you jump and climb, before finally splashing down into the water below. Rainbow Reef is where you can snorkel among fishes and the corals, which is pretty cool. There is also the Adventure River (aka lazy river), where you can just lie back on a float and let the current lead you along. Bluwater Bay is the wave pool, and most of the deck chairs in the water park can be found nearby.
If you’re into rays, dolphins, or even sharks, you can sign up and pay an additional fee to get the opportunity to get up close and personal with them! 🙂 Click here for more information on the dolphin interaction, and here for more information on rays and sharks.
There are a few food carts around the water park, selling ice cream, hotdogs, and more. These snacks are priced from about S$4 upward. There is only one restaurant (The Bay Restaurant) in the water park, and you can get a proper meal there, with the food there priced at around S$5-15, depending on what you order.
Adventure Cove is really quite a fun place to be at, and if you don’t want to be sliding all day, you can simply chill in a deck chair, or in the lazy river. It has something for (almost) everyone, so you won’t be too bored there haha. Of course, if you’re there on weekends/public holidays, be prepared for long queues at the rides, which is quite normal at all theme parks (be they wet or dry).
It’s actually our second time at Adventure Cove (having been here about 1.5-2 years ago), and we had a lot of fun taking the rides and chilling together. 🙂 To end off this post, here’s a pic of C doing a split with the rays watching. 😉 hahaha
