Singapore is a vacationer’s haven, offering everything from sightseeing and relaxation to fun and frolic. While other tourist attractions are spread out over the whole city-country, the NTUC Downtown East on Pasir Ris Road is a complete self-contained entertainment district. It offers food and beverages, shopping bonanzas and entertainment at over 40 retail outlets. The star attraction is the Escape Theme Park, Singapore’s largest outdoor entertainment park that opened its doors to the public in May 2000.
The park’s 16 rides include a pirate ship, 2 go-cart tracks with the Daytona Go-cart, a thrilling experience, fairground style rides, a haunted house experience and the highest log-flume in Asia. A mishap at the indoor roller coaster led to its closure in 2005, and the place was made a non-smoking park.
Fans of water sports and water-related activities have lots in store, with rides such as the Flume Ride, which is the highest water ride in Asia, and the breath-taking 360 degree Cadbury Inverter.
Adjacent to the Escape Theme Park, is the 4 year old Wild Wild Wet, Singapore’s biggest water theme park that was inaugurated in June 2004. Fun-filled attractions include raft slides, an artificial wave pool, Jacuzzi and Slide-up. Wild Wild Wet won the 2004 World Water Park Association Innovation Award.
Food options include fast food, bubble tea and snack items for a quick bite between action packed activities, and the gourmet would also be spoiled for choice with delicacies from all international cuisines. Choose Asian favorites like Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Malay, Indian or opt for Western and Italian delights. Seafood lovers would be amazed at what lies in store.
Mementos of a memorable holiday, gifts for family back home, can all be picked up at the mini lifestyle arcade. All these attractions make the Escape Theme Park a great place for a family outing.
Before you arrive, ensure you have made arrangements to stay at a luxury hotel in Singapore. Singapore offers everything that’s modern and convenient, so most luxury hotels add a touch of tradition and culture to provide a unique hotel-stay experience for their guests.
