With summer year long in Singapore, there's always an excuse to indulge in some ice cream or take a dip in a public pool. But nothing brings out your inner kid quite like tall water slides and wave pools. To amp up the thrill-o-meter, many water parks are bringing out the big guns like rapid flume rides, high-speed water slides, and an inflatable obstacle course à la Wipeout. For something less energetic, you can switch to the various lazy rivers, as well as wet play areas which are more free-and-easy.

While most water parks have reopened, they operate at limited capacities, so it's best to book your tickets online before rocking up to the venue in your swimming suits.

There's no need to go to Batam to get your cable-ski fix. Head to Singapore Wake Park instead where you can wakeboard right on this island. The park has three cable systems: beginner, intermediate and full-sized ones that cater to all levels, children included. The first two are operator-controlled and allow one rider at a time to ensure newbies master their first experience balancing on the board – it’s not as easy as it looks. All equipment, such as kneeboards, wakeboards, helmets and vests, are provided. Coastal Rhythm, the on-site café operated by the restaurant group behind Coastal Settlement and Symmetry, serves up a fusion of local and Western favourites like chicken tikka pizza and battered otah for post-workout fuelling.

Live out your ultimate Wipeout dream at Singapore's very first floating aqua park. Both kids and kidults can climb, slide, leap and bounce at the massive inflatable playground and obstacle course – think a giant bouncy castle in the sea, just off Sentosa's Palawan Beach. To maximise the fun for everyone, the water park is split into four zones with varying difficulty levels. The two-hour splash sesh starts from $10 for kids aged five to eight, and from $18 for everyone else aged nine and above. 

Note: there are a limited number of tickets available per session to allow safe distancing. It's recommended to book your slots in advance online.

From rapid flume rides to four-storey slides and wave pools, there's no shortage of fun at this water park in the east. The little ones can take it easy in the meandering river or splash around in Yippie!, a shallow sloshing area. The Yakult Professor’s Playground – with its slides, ladders, water cannons and fountains – will entertain older kids for hours. More adventurous ones can take on an exhilarating trip down the Ular-Lah raft slide, complete with high, banked corners and 360° spins. Otherwise unleash your inner daredevil for the 19-metre-tall Vortex.

Note: Wild Wild Wet is open on Thursday to Monday, from noon to 6pm, with a capacity limit that varies per ride. It's recommended to book your slots in advance online.

Splish, splash, splosh with the little ones at this indoor water wonderland. And by little ones, we also mean that babies under 12 months get to enjoy free entry. The water playground stretches out to 23,000 square feet, with five slides and eight play decks that are all interconnected by climbing structures. Big buckets of water topple at random over a few areas, so expect most children to cluster around that splash pad to get dunked. For those with tots aged 18 to 36 months, head over to a separate wading area where water jets gently spray streams at you.

Note: this venue has a capacity limit of 50 persons per session. It's recommended to book your slots in advance via email at splash@safra.sg, or call 6585 8710.

Kallang Wave Mall knows just how to raise the roof – with a water park perched on top of it. While Splash N Surf has a water play area open only to kids, there’s a lazy pool that allows all including adults to laze in, for a grand sum of two bucks. Otherwise, catch some waves on the Stingray, and learn to half-pipe surf while having a go at bodyboarding and skimboarding. However, mastering your skills in riding the boogie board and the kneeboard comes with a price, starting from $30 per hour and up.

A fun and thrilling waterpark for the young (and the young at heart), Adventure Cove Waterpark guarantees a splashing good time for the whole family. From high-speed water slides including a water tornado ride and Asia's first hydro-magnetic coaster, as well as a lazy river to float away under the sun, it's easy to spend a whole day at this waterpark. Besides the exciting attractions, there are plenty of opportunities to learn and encounter with marine life. You can snorkel with over 20,000 tropical fish, wade among rays, and more.
