Family fun in Punggol SAFRA Part I {Review & Giveaway of Splash @ Kidz Amaze}

Our kids looooovvvveee water playgrounds. I bet yours too, right? What's there not to love about being able to get all wet, zip down slippery slides, splash around and just have a jolly good time? Well, there is one factor that may just ruin all the fun - bad weather.

There were several times when we had to change our plans for water play due to the rain, even if it was just a drizzle, and the kids were disappointed. I don't think it's a bad thing having to learn to be flexible, but sometimes I do wish we could have gone ahead with plans after seeing their excited faces. So, can you imagine their euphoria when we told them that finally, there's going to be an INDOOR water playground in Singapore? Plus, it's located in the northeast of Singapore, near where we live, so it takes merely a 10-minute drive to get there.

Oh yes, you must know which place I am referring to by now. It's Splash @ Kidz Amaze in Punggol SAFRA!



As Singapore’s first indoor water playground, Splash @ Kidz Amaze is conveniently located in Punggol SAFRA clubhouse, which sits directly opposite the main entrance of Sam Kee LRT Station (PW1). The huge playground spans 24,000 square feet and features multiple play decks, five slides and a splash pad which are designed according to the theme of the "Enchanted Deep Sea". We'll show you around and share with you what we love best about this place.

First and foremost, I love the.... bathroom!! Here, you can find lockers, baby changing area and even two-door cubicles which let you keep an eye on the kids if they can wash up on their own. I usually bathe together with my kids for now, so I still kept both doors closed and locked. You'll be sorry if you forget to lock one and you are bathing inside. Nonetheless, it was good to see such an option and that the place has been made as kid-friendly as possible. The most important thing is that there is hot water available! Woohoo! No more shivering after bathing in cold water, or worse, not being able to even find a shower area after water play.




Now, moving on to the play areas. There is a splash pad, or rather, a wading area which is meant for the toddlers and small kids. We were told that the depth of water in Splash is only approximately 30cm, which makes it quite safe for the kids to run around and play. Still, I have to advise parents to always keep an eye on the kids because accidents can happen anywhere (that is why they are called accidents, right?). With the place being enclosed and there being only one point of entry, I have to say that it makes it easier for us to supervise the kids, especially if you have more than one running around at any point in time.






One of our favourites was this spinning top where one kid can sit on it while the other helps to push and rotate it while jets of water spray outwards. In times like this, I am just glad for siblings and that the kids can play on their own without needing my help.





There are also water guns that you can use to spin and 'shoot' one another, as well as a mini bridge that you can crawl through and attempt to slide down. We did have a friend who unfortunately fell and hurt himself while crossing the bridge, so just remember to ask the kids to be careful no matter what.

You know, I didn't really think that Angel, at six years of age, would like the wading pool much but it ended up that she did, much to my relief because that meant that she could help me look after the little sister. However, it was evident that they were so much more in love with the main play area, which was where they spent the majority of our 3-4 hours of play.



The main play area consists of a three-storey structure which features two small slides and two long, winding tunnel slides. Just so you can feel more assured, there will be a handful of crew members, dressed in yellow shirts, stationed at different points to ensure the safely of the kids. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were friendly and fun-loving, for instance they would playfully splash water on us and my kids were only too happy to splash back at them.



The baby slide, which had two small slides side by side, were a little too baby-ish for my kids, even for Ariel, so they only played on it a couple of times.




The second slide, which is the green, wider slide suited more for toddlers, was their favourite of all and they probably went down on it dozens of times. If you are unlucky, you can even get dunked by the giant bucket of water on top when you are sliding down. How fun, right?



So this is what I mean when I said that the water is relatively shallow, so the toddler can walk, sit and even crawl about safely in the water. It's quite a great place for us to play crocodile and I can let them sit on my back without worrying that I will sink into the water!


Next up, we move on to the thrilling tunnel slides! Which one did the big girl like most? The highest, longest and most winding one! Although there are some dim lights inside, I have to say that the tunnel slide is quite pitch-black so if your child is scared of the dark, do assure and prepare him/her first. The good thing is they do allow parents to slide down too but you will have to take turns, either before or after your child.

Angel thoroughly loved it and went down countless number of times! However, what happened to her at the second tallest slide was that it was even more slippery, causing her to go down real quickly and hit her head at a turn. It was okay for me and most of the other kids, so I thought it could be a fluke and encouraged her to try again. After some protests, she did and once again, she knocked her head (I could hear the bump from where I was standing, right on top). So we figured out it would be better for her to stick to the tallest slide instead, which she really enjoyed.







Lastly, I was thinking in the day how awesome it was that natural light could shine in and the sun rays made the place feel warm yet not overly hot. When the sun began to set, I was in for a bigger surprise. The special effect lightings at the rooftop began changing colours! How cool is that? I remember lying down in the water, just admiring the fishes swimming underneath the relaxing, ambient lights. Before reality set in with a jolt and a familiar voice said "Mummy, I want to pee!"

So, we ended up staying till the playground was closing and had more fun and laughter than we expected. Thanks to Splash @ Kidz Amaze for the wonderful experience and I've a feeling we will be back pretty soon for more splashing good times!

    My family and I love waterplay parks! Having hot water in the park is an added bonus! This is because my two sons are only two, and whenever we finish playing, they will shiver or caught a flu. And the area at Splash @ Kidzania Amaze is sooo huge! In addition, as it is under the sea theme, my sons will defitnely love it because the little mermaid is their favourite show!

    All kids love waterplay, but most parents have too many "fears" ; the weather, too hot, too cold. I love that splash is indoor, yet with a beautiful sunlight. And not forgetting that the wading pool is temperature regulated, so the little ones can play abit longer!
