1. Have a splashing good time at HydroDash

Get your swimsuit on as you have a splashing good time at HydroDash, Singapore’s first floating water park.

The floating obstacle course is located at Palawan Beach in Sentosa and will have you and your family jumping and bouncing across huge inflatables in the sea. So, get ready to be soaked as you make your way through the obstacle course and race to the finish.

2. Get your skates on

Let forth your inner disco diva as you skate all your worries away at Hi Roller indoor skating rink. And if you’re worried about not knowing how to skate, don’t be. The skating rink has qualified teachers who can give lessons to people of all ages and offers both inline and roller skates! But hey, part of the fun is feeling wobbly on your feet as you attempt to glide across the rink with your loved ones, right?

If you are in the mood for something a little cooler, Singapore is also home to a few ice-skating rinks that will allow you to skate to your heart’s content, all without breaking a sweat!

3. Attempt to escape in 60 minutes or less

Put your thinking cap on as you immerse yourself in an escape room filled with puzzles that will surely have the gears in your brain turning.

In 60 minutes or less, work together with your loved ones to find out how to escape the room. Have fun putting together pieces of the puzzle as you search for clues and try your luck at cracking various codes. This would undoubtedly be an activity that brings the family together!

4. Plan an island getaway trip

There is nothing that says the long weekends than packing your bags for a day of fun in the sun.

For one of the best things to do during the long weekends in Singapore that involves crystal clear seas and sandy beaches, hop on a ferry to Lazarus Island, Kusu Island or St. John’s Island with Singapore Island Cruise.
