Sentosa is packed with something for everyone, whether you want to sun tan and frolic in the sand or hold your heart in your hand while you free fall from a height of 15 metres at MegaJump! Known as the State of Fun, 10% of our voters think this is the best family-friendly attraction in Singapore! 

Strike a pose with your favorite personalities, or at least with their wax figures, at Madame Tussauds, go on a banana boat ride at Ola Beach Club, and manoeuvre some curves like a pro-racer at Skyline Luge. Or take your pick from a buffet of rides at Universal Studios Singapore, let the waves bump you along at Adventure Cove Waterpark’s Adventure River and escape from crazed zombies at HeadRock VR. Whatever you feel like.

In tropical Singapore, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as a wild splash in a pool and Wild Wild Wet with its thrill rides, is more than just refreshing!

Or if they would rather have a tamer splish-splosh fun, they can hit up Professor’s Playground where multiple swirly slides, water cannons, fountains and a huge bucket that dumps water at intervals, will keep them very busy.
