Singapore’s Sentosa Island is one of the finest playgrounds in Southeast Asia which offers various activities for all age groups. One of the island’s premium draws is Adventure Cove Waterpark. A part of the Marine Life Park, it provides the whole family with scintillating experiences ranging from high adrenaline rides to snorkelling amidst shoals of colourful fish.
The waterpark is home to the legendary Riptide Rocket. This peerless hydro rollercoaster sends riders bucketing down a series of chutes and tubes. The Spiral Washout zooms through a revolving tube while Splashworks is a water-themed obstacle course designed to challenge the intelligence and staying power of youngsters and teenagers. Other bonuses are the Duelling Racer and Wet Maze.
Bluwater Bay is a beautifully presented wave pool with surf guaranteed to keep swimmers bobbing along. Seahorse Hideaway is a designated pool in which toddlers can splash to their hearts’ content in shallow water and maybe even take their first swimming steps.
Rainbow Reef is a magical facility packed with 20,000 colourful fish species. Snorkelling alongside the likes of copperband butterflyfish and yellowfin surgeonfish is heavenly. If you prefer to simply laze around, the Adventure River takes tubers on a waterborne odyssey through diverse features including a tropical garden and a spooky cavern.
People joining Adventure Cove Waterpark tours also have the option of enhancing their packages with add-ons for Ray Bay, Dolphin Island, and private cabanas. At Ray Bay, visitors are able to wade amidst the inmates and hold out food for them to devour. Interacting and swimming with bottlenose dolphins are a major enticement to enter the waters of Dolphin Island.
The Bay Restaurant is a traditional Malay structure built out of timber and offering nice views over the park. It features an outdoor patio and a menu comprising a varied selection of Singaporean and Malaysian favourites plus a number of signature Western dishes. Reef ‘n Wave stocks quality clothing for swimming and marine-themed souvenirs.
Apart from the designated toddler amenities, there are a few height restrictions applicable to the attractions. Adults must accompany youngsters under 122cms on many of them. A minimum height limit of 107cms applies to the Riptide Rocket.

It can be reached via the Sentosa Island Boardwalk, by bus or on the Sentosa Express Monorail service from central Singapore. The park is a few minutes on foot from the monorail’s Waterfront Station.
