For rock climbers: Climb Central
For an adrenalin pumping party with a difference, scale to new heights up the rock climbing walls at Climb Central. It’s a unique and ideal party venue for the slightly older party child – our gung ho little lady went to a six year-old birthday party and was high as a kite. You can join in the fun too as parties with kids under 13 require two adult volunteers (or if you’re afraid of heights just outsource to the professionals). Parents can watch on from the viewing platform in the air-conditioned mall, and head down to the party room after the fun is over for a slice of cake and a refreshing beverage (self catering).

For thrill-seekers: Forest Adventure
School aged kids aged seven years and above will love harnessing up and negotiating an obstacle course high among the treetops at epic Forest Adventure. Bear in mind (to avoid disappointed tears) that the various sections require kids to be 1.1m, 1.35m and 1.5m in height respectively. Once the kidlets are let loose on the course they’ll traverse wobbly logs, rope swings, rickety bridges and a couple of leaps of faith. The HoneyKids team has tried out the Forest Adventure experience so we can vouch it is super-fun! What did we love best? Zip lining over Bedok Reservoir at the end of it all! Our tip: bring scooters to save little legs a long walk from the car park.

CulinaryOn is the Disneyland of cooking schools and the perfect party venue for the junior master chef. We can confirm from first-hand experience that it is truly magical.

The kids then enjoy a culinary master-class – mixing, kneading and tasting three delicious recipes (100% from scratch). You can pick your little chef’s favourites from a great kids’ menu (think colourful pasta, spring rolls and pizza faces) and opt for a raft of other fun activities including competitions and quizzes, apron decorating and a chocolate fountain. And you can watch on with a glass of wine in hand. Best suited to kids aged four to 16 years.
