With travelling being on the backburner for over a year, many of us are in search of exciting things to do on our little red dot. If you’re tired of staying in for date nights or lazing around with the kids, here are six exciting activities you can indulge in this weekend.
If you’ve always secretly hoped that you could bounce to your heart’s desire on one of those jumpy castles that are strictly for kids, now’s your chance to satiate the inner child in you by taking on Hydrodash this weekend. A floating obstacle course located in the hearts of Sentosa at Palawan Beach, this inflatable playground is suited for both the young and old. Perfect for big groups up to eight or for a thrill-seeking family day out, see if you can become the next Ninja Warrior.
Open on weekdays from 12pm to 6pm and on weekends from 10am to 7pm, Hydrodash’s tickets give you either 1-hour or 2-hour access, from $13. Participants will all be equipped with life jackets too, so those who can’t swim can lay their worries to rest.
2. Holey Moley Mini Golf
For those who lead a more sedentary lifestyle but still want to get out and about instead of staying in, look no further than the Holey Moley Mini Golf. From a Game-of-Thrones-inspired hole to playing golf right in the middle of Bart Simpson’s living room, Holey Moley provides 27 uniquely designed holes to putt it out with your significant other.
You can choose to take on a 9-hole, 18-hole or 27-hole course, with tickets priced from $20/person. If all that arm work out and deep concentration are wearing you out, you can wind down with their large collection of snacks and drinks at their Caddyshack bar too.
