Aqua Adventure is Singapore’s first integrated indoor water park, equipped with long, winding water slides, and exciting high-element courses. It’s a great place to bring your children for some fun activities if you’re spending the December holidays in Singapore! For those kids who might be afraid of heights, they might want to sit out for the latter. However, while the obstacle courses might be a solo affair, they can brave the slides with a parent or sibling with the help of a float! However, if getting wet and sticky isn’t your family’s thing, you can also head to their “dry section” Clockwork Towers, a unique rock-climbing wall that has handles and gears for you to grapple on.
