It’s all about quality over quantity when it comes to the best water parks in Singapore (and just beyond!). We’ve got tons of great public swimming pools on our weekend fun list, but if you’re looking to make a big splash with some serious water play (check out our guide to Singapore’s huge range of water playgrounds while you’re at it), you’re going to need to know where the giant inflatable doughnuts, crazy fast water coasters and the laziest of rivers are at…
Wild Wild Wet
If you haven’t been to the water park jewel of the east recently, then you need to pack your swimmers and head on over, stat. It’s recently had a HUGE makeover, and what was once a pretty decent water theme park, is now a cracking, splashin’ hub of water excellence the whole fam will love. Teens (and braver parents) will love the new star players: vortex, free fall and royal flush, while less brave crew members can still have a whale of a time on the giant unicorn inflatables, trying out the wave pool and water playgrounds, and whizzing down the less terrifying slides.

Adventure Cove Waterpark
With plenty of paddle pools, slides and even a magnetic water coaster, Resorts World Sentosa’s Adventure Cove Waterpark is perfect for a day of soggy antics. We especially love swimming with the fish over at the fin-fully fabulous Rainbow Reef, where you can get up close with tropical fish as you snorkel your way around the pool. Book a session to feed stingrays, float down the 620 metre Adventure River, check out the Big Bucket Treehouse with the littlies, and then soak up some sun in a privately hired cabana at BluWater Bay.

Okay, so we know technically it’s not IN Singapore, but it’s easy enough to get to and it’s loads of fun so we can’t leave it out: LEGOLAND Waterpark is splash-tastic, and well worth the trip across the bridge to Malaysia! Hit the surf at the LEGO wave pool, float along the Build-A-Raft lazy river and throw yourself (and/or the kids) down tube slides and body slides galore. And when you’re done with all the wet ‘n’ wild fun, dry off and head into LEGOLAND for more awesome adventures.
