Wild Wild Wet, one of Singapore’s largest water parks, has everything you’d want and expect in a water-themed amusement park. The park opened in 2004 as Singapore’s first. The park’s nine rides and attractions range from the adrenaline-pumping Torpedo, a water slide that includes a seven-storey free fall, to the relaxing 1,099-foot (335-meter) Shiok River, where guests can float leisurely around the perimeter of the park.
Except for a few slides, Wild Wild Wet is more appropriate for young children than for thrill-seeking teenagers. The Professor’s Playground, an exclusive kids area, is fashioned after a science laboratory and filled with pint-sized slides, fountains and wading pools.
Bring plenty of sunscreen, as shade in the park is limited and tends to get snatched up early. Expect huge crowds on weekends and Singaporean holidays. Since Wild Wild Wet is located just a few minutes from the Changi Airport, it’s a good way to spend a few hours between checking out of your hotel and catching your flight.
