Instead of letting the little ones crawl all over your furniture, why not bring them to one of Singapore's high-element obstacle courses? These kid-friendly (think reasonable heights for different age groups and very safe) outing builds a child's confidence and is one that parents can even join in the fun too.

Dive head first or backflip your way over the edge at Singapore's first and only bungee jump that's right over Siloso Beach. The kids – or even adults who aren't prepared to fully take the plunge – can start with the Skybridge. The suspended bridge stands at 47 metres above ground to help overcome the fear of heights and vertigo. Besides the bungee, there are also other high-element activities for the thrill-seekers including a giant swing that requires partners to link arms as you 'fly'.

Adventure Cove Waterpark

Things to do Sentosa

A fun and thrilling waterpark for the young (and the young at heart), Adventure Cove Waterpark guarantees a splashing good time for everyone. While you trail down the water slides and float away down the lazy river, don't miss the Wet Maze and take on the Rope Course. It's decked with sprays, jets and tipping water buckets, as well as kid-friendly obstacles and mazes that adults can join in too.

Bounce Singapore

Kids Orchard

There isn’t a moment of stillness at Bounce Singapore, where you can jump off walls and fly through the air. Beat the clock as you and the little Ninja Warriors fight your way through the trampoline park's obstacle course, X-Park. Get ready to bounce on trampolines, scale bouldering walls, balancing on beams and zip down for an epic finish.

Forest Adventure

Kids Bedok

Nope, that’s not a bird or a plane. It’s just a bunch of children flying through the foliage of Bedok Reservoir Park in one of Forest Adventure’s three courses. The Kid’s Course, for those aged five to nine years old – and at least 1.1 metres tall – features 22 crossings including two zip lines, ending with a 15-metre flying fox all the way down. For a smaller course, there is the Junior Course inclusive of one round of the Kids's and Grand Course. And adventurous kids aged ten and up are allowed on the Grand Course, which packs in 44 wobbly crossings and three zip lines – across water, no less – found 6 metres off the ground.

And fear not, parents: kids will be connected to a continuous safety line throughout the course and will not be disconnected until they’ve reached the end. While you aren’t allowed on the Mini Course, it has a raised platform for you to be nearer to your nervous tots.

Mega Adventure Sentosa

Things to do Sentosa

Sixty kilometres-per-hour, 75 metres up and 450 metres long. MegaZip is one of the longest and steepest zip lines – and probably fastest – in the region. While there is no minimum age to take the plunge, children need to be at least 0.9 metres tall – and they’ll still have to take flight in tandem with an adult. Kids taller than 1.2 metres can navigate their way through MegaClimb, a high-ropes course amid eucalpytus trees. There are three levels of difficulty, each with a dozen obstacles, to pick from – they range from five to 15 metres above ground.

Let ’em Play

Kids Play spaces Clementi

Let the little ones climb to their hearts’ content at this multi-activity play centre. A range of rock walls are available, including two speed-climbing auto-belaying walls. Those as young as five can try to balance on the two-storey indoor high elements obstacle course, with the help of a parent, who are encouraged to climb with their younger kids. But the highlight at Let ’em Play is Singapore’s first augmented reality rock climbing wall. Challenge another player to hit as many bats as possible, climb a set route or pass a ball back and forth – all while hanging onto the wall, of course.

Clip 'n Climb Singapore

Sport and fitness Tampines

New Zealand's indoor climbing theme park Clip 'n Climb has set up base at Our Tampines Hub. Test your limits and scale over 19 colourful themed walls that range from easy for the rookies to difficult for the more experienced. But don’t let its quirky looks fool you – each station stands at 8 metres and is designed to be mentally challenging, featuring different types of grips and obstacles. Experience a twist in rock climbing at the Dry Ice wall where you’ll be given ‘ice picks’ – a pair of wooden sticks – to scale the structure and maneuver yourself to the top. 

Kinetics Climbing

Kinetics Climbing

If your little one is a bundle of energy, put that power to good use at Kinetics Climbing where they offer climbing classes for kids as young as four to seven years old (Rugrats Climbing), seven to 13 years old (Kinetics Junior Climbing Team). Not just focused on getting your kids to become the next Spiderman, this school pays keen attention to safe and efficient climbing techniques in groups for no more than 12. A sport that'll train both physical and mental strength (and problem-solving skills), not to mention conquering any possible fear of heights.

KidsSTOP

Kids Jurong East

This edutainment centre uses hands-on activities and facilities to introduce the wild world of science to those aged 18 months to eight. And, as you’d probably guess by now, gravity’s a big part of it. Enter The Big Dream Climber. This fantastical two-storey-high wall features elements plucked from the mind of the Mad Hatter: hanging doors, flying fish, giant gears and huge leaves greet kids at every corner. And if they manage to scale the wall, they’ll arrive at the Music Zone, where they can go nuts on drums and organs, constructed from PVC pipes.

SAFRA Adventure Sports Centre

Kids Yishun

Chalk up brownie points with your kids by celebrating birthdays with an adventure party. And at this SAFRA centre, you’ll have a 15-metre-high, 400-metre-long sky walk – don’t worry, there are safety instructors and all the necessary equipment on hand – to take things to the next level. Literally. There are also indoor bouldering gyms, rock climbing walls and a laser tag facility to lose yourself in. Walk-ins aren’t accepted, though – you’ll have to make an advance booking in groups of four and up to take on this canopy obstacle course.
