Easter is just around the corner, and—among other things—that means a public holiday is on the horizon. Even better, a long weekend! The Good Friday long weekend is the perfect time to unwind and spend time with the family, especially in Singapore, where there is a dazzling array of activities for travelers of all ages. Whether you want to explore amusement parks or you’re up for heart-stopping extreme sports, there are endless options for fun and recreation on the island. If you’re already making plans for the upcoming long weekend, you can’t go wrong with these kid-friendly places to go in Singapore.
1. Marina Square
With the 200-plus specialty shops in Marina Square, you’ll never run out of things to do in this sprawling shopping mall. No matter the age, youngsters will find something to enjoy, like Pororo Park Singapore for little tots. Besides offering fun zones like a ball pit, play gym, and an express train, the indoor playground puts together meet-and-greet sessions for the characters of Pororo the Little Penguin. Another indoor playground at Marina Square is Kiztopia , a massive play park perfect for children 12 and below with climbing gyms, bouncy castles, and more. Meanwhile, sporty kids and adults will revel in the high-octane environment at Nerf Action Xperience. Gear up for an action-packed Nerf battle, and test your skills and teamwork in the indoor arena’s themed activity zones.
2. Great World City
At the Great World City, families can find a variety of shops, restaurants, and activities to celebrate the long weekend. With toddler-safe play areas, mini-slides, and other interactive play zones designed for tiny tykes, Amazonia Singapore will keep the youngsters entertained for hours. Older kids can explore the best attractions of the indoor playground, including the tallest wave slide in Singapore. And if you’d rather spend Easter weekend relaxing and learning something new, attend a terrarium-making workshop at The Green Capsule in Great World City. Discover the joys of making and growing indoor glass gardens, a low maintenance gardening activity perfect for new plant lovers and experienced plantsmen alike.
For locals and tourists alike, Sentosa is always a good idea. The sun-soaked island resort is one of the best places in Singapore for family bonding, natural attractions, and exciting activities. Experience the multi-sensory wonders of 4D technology in Sentosa 4D AdventureLand where you can get transported to virtual worlds of mysterious isles, jungle roller coasters, haunted gold mines, and laser gun shootouts. But if you’re up for extreme thrills, skydive indoors at iFly Singapore. Take the plunge without risking your life in the giant wind tunnel with views of the South China Sea.
4. Downtown East Singapore
From water parks to indoor playgrounds, Downtown East Singapore offers all kinds of recreational activities for travelers of all ages. Found in Pasir Ris, it is one of the premier lifestyle and entertainment hubs in Singapore. On hot summer days, there’s nothing more refreshing than splashing around in one of the city’s largest water parks: Wild Wild Wet. The award-winning water park is filled with exciting attractions, including four-story slides and giant flumes. Kiddies who love the South Korean animated series Tayo the Little Bus will have fun at Tayo Station, an indoor playground providing plenty of play learning opportunities for children.
5. Jewel Changi Airport
While airport hubs aren’t necessarily tourist attractions, but Singapore’s Changi Airport is truly a marvel. The green wonderland is a pleasure to walk through with the Canopy Park and Canopy Bridge, Rain Vortex, and Forest Valley, among others. Make the most of your family’s time here with a visit to Singapore’s first aviation theme park Changi Experience Studio where you can discover the inner workings of airport operations.
