You would have already known that SAFRA Punggol has opened in late April. We attended a media invite at Splash @ Kidz Amaze recently and the kids had the blessing to experience water-play at Singapore’s first indoor water playground, right before mid-year exams commence.
Occupying a floor area of 24,000 square feet, the water playground themed after the ‘Enchanted Deep Sea’ is by far the largest and tallest indoor splash pool with multiple play decks, five slides and a themed splash pad. Splash @ Kidz Amaze is only meant for children aged 18 months to 13 years of age but adults are too having a great time in there. Who wouldn’t love a dip especially under such hot weather? Personal Bestest Reason – no harsh sun in there or else I would not be frolicking with the kids (and Audrey)! >.<
The water playground has a standard depth of 30cm throughout the entire area. The younger toddlers can enjoy their splashing in front of the party rooms where dedicated play structures have been installed for their enjoyment. Our three kids spent a lot of their time here as they really loved the uncluttered area with large open spaces where they ran, crawled and made waves.
Don't just play play!! You are free to go mad!!! After all, this is the newly-opened indoor playground by @splashkidzamaze at @safrapunggol. The entire pool is only 30cm deep. Leave the cumbersome floats at home and come play at #wherefunflows. 😈 . . . . #safra #safrapunggol #splashkidzamaze #kidzplay #kidsworld #kidsfun #SingaporeParentBloggers #sgblogger #singaporeinsiders #waterplay
Even the daddies were having fun with water sprays and our families had some serious warfare around the water sprays.
At the far end of Splash @ Kidz Amaze, stands a huge 3-storey tall structure that has everything a child can dream of – water bucket, three slides of varying excitement and even colourful mood lights that come into play as the evening leads into the night. Here at SAFRA Punggol, the water playground opens til 8 pm on weekdays or 9 pm on weekends and Public Holidays.
Over here, the big green slide appealed to our kids the most – the space is wide enough for two children to slide down almost the same time (I monitored and the crew does ensure a certain level of safety not to have the kids bumping into each other while at play). Just at the three slides alone, there were already a team of 6 crews to look after the children’s safety both from the top and bottom of slides. I did not count how many other crew were walking around the area though, but spotted at least 2 different persons ensuring overall safety at areas other that the huge play structure.
Out of the three, Jiejie was the only more adventurous one that day. She decided to experience the thrill from both the taller slides. She preferred the lower one as it was exciting enough for her but not overly so as she is not totally a thrill seeker. 🙂 Morever, she made friends with the pretty jiejie manning the entrance to that slide and insisted I go meet her new friend too.
Play during weekend is limited to four (4) hours per session and there are altogether three sessions in a day. I find that the duration is comfortable and long enough such that kids will not still be crying for more at the end of the session. With a sufficient four hours in the water, each of them readily and willingly went for their shower after that.
Here’s a quick overview of the water playground at SAFRA Punggol to share –
